Chef, cooking instructor and recipe tester for Flavours of Canada, Laura Buckley writes from her Markham, Ontario home.
“A very casual affair this year. A few good friends in our backyard in the community of Cornell, Markham, ON. Hoping some of my heirloom tomatoes will be ripe for a salad with basil and goat cheese. Butterflied leg of lamb, roasted beets with garlic and marjoram, new potatoes wit mint, and peach and blueberry cake with homemade ice cream. We’ll be drinking Kawartha Lakes Brewery Raspberry Wheat beer and Henry of Pelham Baco Noir. The ingredient list? Rowe Farm for all my meat (St. Lawrence North Mkt.), my veggies are from my garden and from St. Lawrence north Mkt.”
