So this month of the Canadian Food Experience project, and this month Valerie from a Canadian Foodie challenged us to write about preserving. I really struggled with this because I don't really make preserves, or so I thought. The Canadian Food Experience project brings together food bloggers, from across the country, to share their collective regional and cultural food experiences.
My local Canadian food hero is Chef Scott Savoie. Through his Culinary Adventure Company Chef Scott is making that sure that both residents and visitors to the City of Toronto know that we have a very vibrant and exciting culinary scene. I had the pleasure of attending a pop-up dinner that Chef hosted and this will now be part one of the things that I'll be doing every summer from now on. I've done a review of the event that I attended so if you're interested in doing this, keep reading.
In the second month of the Canadian Food Experience project, we were challenged to write about food that specific to my region and I chose pork. Now pork is available all across all of Canada but there are a lot of pig farmers in Southern Ontario so I'm going to claim as my regional cuisine. I made one of my family favourite dishes Jerk Pork with a wonderful fresh pork shoulder - Enjoy!
