  • Al fresco harvest table serves up savoury foods

    OTTAWA -- Some of Ottawa Region's finest chefs will partner with local farmers to prepare unique dishes from seasonal local ingredients at the 3rd annual Harvest Table.

    Spearheaded by the Savour Ottawa initiative, the first Harvest Table took place at the Parkdale Market in 2011 with 80 tickets sold. The alfresco event grew last year and celebrated the harvest with over 30 local producers and 10 area chefs participating.

    Eastern Ontario farms who are returning to the menu this Aug. 18 include Pork of Yore, Clarmell Farms, Bryson Farms, The Elk Ranch, Upper Canada Heritage Meat, Acorn Creek Garden Farm, Rollway Hops + the Back 50, Hall's Apple Market, Bekings Poultry Farm, Upper Canada Cranberries, Castor River Farm, Rochon Garden Farm, O'Brien Farms, Fitzroy Beef Farmers Co-operative, Roots and Shoots Farm, and Heavenly Honey.

    In 2012, Wine was provided by Vas-Dea Estates near Picton, and beer by Ottawa's craft brewer Kichesippi Beer Co., flowers were provided by Roots and Shoots Farm and hay decorations provided by Metcalfe's  Castor River Farm, -- both of who are returning for 2013.

    Wine for the 2013 table will be served by Jabulani Vineyard in Richmond and Blue Gypsy Wines in Oxford Mills, craft beer by Ottawa's Beyond the Pale and the new Turtle Island Brewing Co.

    Trillium Meadows Red Deer and Wild Boar Farm, The Pickle Patch, Riverglen Biodynamic Farm, Day Brighteners Farm and Kricklewood Farm are new participants.

    The savoury family-style multi-course luncheon event is held at The Ottawa Farmers Market -- Brewer Park on Sun. Aug. 18 at noon. Cost is $75 per ticket. VIP tickets at $90, include a guided cooking tour of the Ottawa Farmers' Market by C'est Bon Cooking and appetizers and cocktails to start the afternoon in style.
