by Jamie Kennedy, A Good Food Fighter Event
Well the hot summer weather is here, and it’s setting the stage for an exciting event I’m hosting this month. I’d like to invite you to join me at a Communal Table, taking place on Saturday June 19th at the inspiring heritage site of the Evergreen Brick Works. Some of my friends and colleagues, whom you likely know well – Michael Stadtländer, Keith Froggett, Anthony Walsh, Brad Long, Michael Dixon, Adam Colquhoun, Yasser Qahawish and Crosstown Kitchens – are coming to take part. I hope you’ll be there too.
I’ve always wanted to create a unique, celebratory dining experience situated around a very large communal table, and now the time has come. We’ll be dining on the cusp of the summer solstice, and there isn’t a better time to take in and savour the exquisite tastes of our very own southwestern Ontario flavours.
My team and I will be preparing a four-course sit-down dinner, featuring the finest seasonal produce of local food artisans. Prior to that we’ll be enticed by a stunning cocktail setting where my friends will each create delectable, signature canapés.
This gastronomic tour-de-force would not be complete without a selection of our region’s wines and beers, specially chosen for the event by me. So please come take a seat at our table, and join us all for this unique, not-to-be-missed culinary event.
We thankfully acknowledge our fabulous local producers: Cumbrae Farms, Monforte Dairy, Soiled Reputation, Kawartha Ecological Growers, 100km Foods, Merchants of Green Coffee, St. John’s Bakery, Stratus Vineyards, Henry Pelham Family Estate Winery.
