I live in London Ontario. My sister and her husband are driving up from Liberal Kansas for a visit, and my daughter is driving down from her job as assistant director of a YMCA camp on Beausoleil Island this afternoon.

I shop primarily at the Covent Garden Market here in London where we have an indoor organic vendor called Fieldgate as well as an outdoor local market on Saturdays. As well there is an local organic vendor at the Western Fair market only on Saturdays. Shortly I will be visiting both for the rest of my ingredients.

Tonight I will be starting with crostini from an Ace Bakery loaf with various toppings eg red pepper puree, raw garlic and rubbed tomato, white bean with sage from my garden. The main course is a Susar Lee recipe using local organic pork tenderloin (organic tofu for my vegetarian wife). The potato recipe is one with local organic potatoes and onions, cheese, sprinkled with (imported!) nutmeg. Local corn (from Leamington?) of course. Salad is a recipe from Lucy Waverman with arugula from my garden and firm Quebec goat cheese. Finally dessert will be a simple combo of raspberries and wild blueberries in a liqueur base. Wines are from the Niagara region with Henry of Pelham Cabernet Franc and Cave Spring Sauvignon Blanc.
