root vegetables

More than just a meal

World Food Day guests enjoying the meal togethert

Feeding new connections through eating and enjoying food

Amidst the wafting aroma of delicious food and the sound of conversation filling the room, Nourish hosted its second annual World Food Day Dinner last Sunday, marking the close of yet another successful growing season with a meal composed almost entirely of locally-produced ingredients.

Building on the popularity of last year's feast, about 80 community members joined us to commemorate the harvest while partaking in a carefully crafted menu reflective of this year’s theme, root vegetables.

Getting down to the roots

I love this time of the year as it offers so many opportunities to enjoy root vegetables. I harvested my last batch of parsnips on Saturday and made a spicy parsnip soup.  I also went to the farmers' market and bought gorgeous looking beets.  They became the centrepiece for a roasted beets, arugula and goat cheese salad.
