Elora native but now Toronto resident, Robert Young loves to cook and barbecue!
We will be having a small gathering of close friends on Saturday Aug 6th in Toronto, nothing too elaborate, just an excuse to eat great food! The weather looks fantastic, so well be dinning out in the backyard. We’ve planned BBQ Duck with Blueberry sauce, chicken pepper-pot, grilled corn-on-the-cob, potato salad, Caesar salad, tomato/fennel/bocconcini salad with 12 yr balsamic & basil, mixed berry almond tart with orange mint and chocolate-mint pudding. Plus whatever our guests decide to bring! The duck and the chicken were purchased at an organic meat shop in Toronto, I didn’t buy the meat, so I don’t know the exact name of the shop but will provide that later. The corn and potatoes were purchased from a roadside Mennonite stand outside of Conestoga. I bought the bocconcini and balsamic from Vincenzo’s in Kitchener. The remainder of the ingredients we will purchase from a weekend farmers market in Toronto at Old Weston Rd and St.Clair. The herbs we use will come straight from our herb garden.
