I’m in Thunder Bay, Ontario, where the growing season for local produce is short so we make the best of it when we can. Cucumbers from my garden and tomatoes from a small greenhouse operation down the road for a nice fresh salad. My daughter should be back from a fly-in fishing trip so the family is expecting a barbecue of fresh pickerel fillets, maybe with a nice maple syrup glaze for a truly Canadian flavour. Potatos, beets, and onions from the garden, drizzled in butter and topped off with fresh rosemary and thyme on the grill too. In honour of the Flavours of Canada Longest Barbecue, we’ll finish off with the truly Canadian butter tart. I can hardly wait!
