Slow Food Toronto is happy to announce our next event: a summer potluck at the Wychwood Barns (601 Christie Street, Toronto) on Saturday August 13th (5 – 7 pm)!! We’ll be firing up the outdoor oven for some wood-oven pizza. The dough will be made with “Einkorn”, the original wheat, and “Marquis”, a heritage Canadian wheat supplied by Paul and Sara Spence of the Culinary Farm and Roger Rivest Marketing.
We are asking people to bring just their toppings for the pizza. Think local ingredients and summer flavours — the possibilities are almost endless.
Dawn Woodward of Evelyn’s Crackers will also talk about heritage grains and their importance in today’s cuisine. As the co-founder and owner of a small-batch cracker company, Dawn and her partner Ed Rek, leaders and pioneers in the heritage grains movement, have truly mastered their baking craft while focusing on using local, sustainably-produced and organic heritage grains. This will be great opportunity to learn about grains — a food that is often overlooked even though it’s been a staple throughout the ages.
Organic VQA wine by the glass will also be available (thank you to Southbrook Winery, Frog Pond Farm Winery and Tawse Winery).
We hope to see you there out in the sun for some summer fun! Proceeds from the event will go to The Stop.
