Another wedding feast is being prepared by Sandy Denny of Cambridge, Ontario.
She is harvesting her region and writes “I am a culinary student at Liaison College in Kitchener. I am preparing the food for a friends wedding on August 5th. It just happens to be a BBQ on their property out in the country near Fergus The meat is coming from Rowe Farm Meats in Guelph. The rest of the ingredients (what we can find anyway) will come from the farmers market in Guelph.
We will be starting with 2 girls serving appetizers on trays to the guests as they arrive. We will be using as many local ingredients as possible including goat cheese and vegetables that are obtained at the local farmers market in Guelph. We will be roasting local organically grown pork on a spit and serving it with salads prepared using the same ingredients that will be purchased at the farmers market. The finishing touch will be a dessert of a chocolate fountain using locally grown fresh fruit for dipping. I am also making the wedding cake adorned with gum paste flowers that I learned to make at a Sugar Craft school in Cambridge. It is also nice that local people are bringing and teaching these skills locally.”
