Chef and author Bill Jones of Duncan, B.C.
is into the spirit: We hold an annual party on the BC day weekend. The center piece is a whole animal from a local farm that is BBQ’d. This year it is heritage pork from a nearby farm. The guest list is a mix of farmers, chefs, producers, friends, family, dogs and the local Slow Food convivium. This year is will be a whole pig (75 lb) stuffed with chinese spices and glazed with honey, garlic and local apple cider. We also cook salmon in a local first nations style on cedar holders, cooked over grape and hazelnut cuttings. Guests bring salads and desserts and we supply the main dish and a keg of local artisan beer. People bring local wine and gems from the cellar and we have a great time. Several guests camp-out on the property and it has become an annual event. Suppliers? The farmers market, Local farmers, fishermen, food donated by chefs, salads and desserts from a wide range of backgrounds and flaovurs. Local food where ever possible!!!
