Canadian Vegetarian Feast

September 10th, 2018 § 0 comments

Leslie F., HG/BSK’s beautiful Prince Edward Island friend and neighbor, was the dinner guest last night. Though not a strict vegetarian (she eats chicken and fish), Leslie F. focuses her meals on fruit and vegetables. So, dinner was gourmand vegetarian. First, there was a beautiful salad of sliced heirloom tomatoes (from BSK’s garden); cucumbers (also from the garden) sliced paper thin and feta cheese from Nova Scotia (outstanding cheese that matches any Greek imports). Main dish was tagliatelle in BSK’s freshly made pesto. The lush, green pasta was topped with cherry tomatoes from the Charlottetown Farmers Market and surrounded by string beans and broccoli (also from CFM) and tiny potatoes from Ocean Mist Farm. The dish was given added zest by sprinkles of parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes. Leslie and HG drank a good non-oak chardonnay. A Sicilian red was BSK’s choice. Dessert was sliced peaches (from Ontario) and Olympia French Vanilla Ice Cream (from PEI). HG’s after dinner drink was Bagaco, a marc produced by the Matos Distillery of PEI. Yes, this (with the exception of the wines) was an all-Canadian, all PEI meal. Good food from the northern democracy.
