Savour Ottawa, which promotes local food producers, retailers and restaurants, is organizing a couple of great opportunities for people to discover and enjoy locally grown, creatively prepared and tasty food.
Savour Ottawa Tables
Between July 15 and August 30, 2015, Savour Ottawa is collaborating with several area restaurants and farmers to offer menu items that feature ingredients grown close to home. Participating restaurants, kitchens and cafés will be offering a table d’hôte menu, a special event, or prepared, take-home meals based on local ingredients. You’ll find dishes made with heirloom vegetables, seasonal herbs, local cheeses, organic poultry and beef, for example. Check out the menus at http://www.savourottawa.ca/tables/.
Harvest Table 2015
The fifth annual Harvest Table happens on Sunday, August 30, 2015. This is a multi-course lunch where Ottawa chefs partner with area farmers to create dishes that celebrate the local harvest. It will be held in the Horticulture Building, Lansdowne Park, next to the Ottawa Farmers’ Market; you need to buy tickets in advance. Check here for details.
Savour Ottawa is an initiative of Ottawa Tourism, Just Food and the City of Ottawa. (Check out Savour Ottawa Online, where you can order food from local producers and pick it up at the Parkdale Field House every week.)
