For many of us right now, cooking dinner is the highlight of our day.
The pandemic has forced us to look at what we eat, how we buy our food and our own cooking skills. Think about it – has there ever been a better time to master the art of cooking? If the answer to that is “yes!” and you’re looking for accessible, simple and flavourful recipes, which can be easily pulled off with delicious results, say hello to Savour Ontario.
This freshly-hatched online culinary community from Dairy Farmers of Ontario shares recipes from over 30 Ontario chefs:
Lynn Crawford, Michael Bonacini, Jason Bangerter, Cory Vitiello, Elia Herrera, La-toya Fagon, Tawfik Shehata, Craig Harding, Donna Dooher, John Sinopoli, Michael Hunter, Alida Solomon, Missy Hui, Renee Bellefeuille, Alexandra Feswick, Suzanne Barr, Mariane Oliveira and Joshna Maharaj as well as special recipes from Feast On certified chefs across Ontario: backhouse (Niagara), The Breakfast Pig (Sault Ste Marie), Eddington’s of Exeter (Exeter), Flame + Smith (Prince Edward County), Lumbertown Ale House (Arnprior), Elmhirst’s Resort (Kawarthas) and Iron Kettle B&B (Windsor-Essex).
The recipes have been specially selected as personal favourites, and ones that make use of ingredients found in most homes⏤plus a few new twists to inspire more experienced home cooks. What’s on the menu? If you want to support local farmers, you might want to start with Chef Michael Hunter’s Wild Mushroom Tart (shown above) which makes the most of in-season mushrooms like shiitakes and morels.
If comfort is what you’re after, it doesn’t get any better than Chef Jason Bangerter’s Butter Croissant & Milk Chocolate Pudding with Vanilla Whipped Cream.
Or maybe it’s time you tried cheese for dessert with this recipe from the Cheese Boutique‘s Afrim Pristine Gouda and Friends.
