Jud Simpson, the Executive Chef of the House of Commons in Ottawa has been at his grill since 2003.
This summer has been so busy, we used this event to stop and relax. A small gathering of family sat around the picnic table in our sunny backyard and fired up the gas and charcoal bbq’s
It’s all about the Beef! What can possibly be better than a perfectly cooked Canadian triple A strip loin steak fired on charcoal. While that was cooking, we used the gas bbq to cook up some cauliflower, corn and sweet peppers. Simple fare during a busy summer with a great Shiraz and a relaxing evening with family. Fantastic – I can’t wait until next year.
We are fortunate in Ottawa to have a great new farmer’s market featuring locally grown products – berries, potatoes, beans, garlic, organic carrots and much more. Obtaining meats, great cheese and vegetables locally is not a problem, especially in the summer months.
