Rebecca LeHeup-Bucknell from Prince Edward County, Ontario
We are going to have a barbeque at the Sandbanks beach with friends – this has become a weekly summer tradition that shall carry on for years to come
The beef will come from Goodfellow Meats – they use 100% County beef. The organically grown vegetables will come from grower Vicki Emlaw of Vicki’s Veggies (I have a share in her CSA program). I’ll get bread from The Regent Cafe (who has pastry chef Christian Marchsteiner craft an olive and sundried tomato loaf for them). The 3 year-old cheddar is from the Black River Cheese Company. I’ll likely take along some of the Merrill Inn’s Tomato and Pear Chutney made by chef Michael Sullivan. Blueberries will more than likely come from Hughes Blueberries in Waupoos. I’ll pick up my ice cream straight from Slickers where it is crafted with local ingredient. The wine – well – can’t go to the Sandbanks and not enjoy a glass of Sandbanks Estate
The ingredients are 100% Prince Edward County beef burgers tweaked with some garlic and shallots from Vicki’s Veggies. A variety of organic salads, locally made bread and cheese and some Slicker’s Ice Cream served with local blueberries for dessert. We’ll also quaff some County wines while we watch the sun set.
