Summer is my favourite time of year – for two main reasons:
1) living in a big city like Toronto summer means a huge selection of farmers markets to buy fresh local fruits, veggies and other tasty treats and 2) travelling up to our cottage in Haliburton – which is where our WLBBQ party will be this year!
What we’re serving: great Canadian beef of course (isn’t that why BBQs were invented?), a variety of local veggies we pick up on the drive north and some great baby red potatoes that manage to grow out of cottage compost pile each year – all cooked on the BBQ. For dessert – fresh Ontario peaches from my Uncle’s peach farm in Grimsby served with homemade granola and drizzled with Ontario maple syrup – wrapped in foil and barbecued until heated through. Of course, no BBQ party is complete without a selection of Ontario wines and beers! Beef, beer and friends – the perfect party! Go Canada Go!!
