Be a localvore In Ontario

Toronto’s Cowbell restaurant has a treat for you. Three times a year, chef Mark Cutrara creates a five-course menu using ingredients from one local farm. Sixty-day dry-aged strip loin with shoots and flowers, beef-liver pâté with sherry, heirloom tomato salad and goat’s-milk ice cream with strawberries will make you want to attend all three events. Call early: tickets are very limited. If you can’t make to a Farmers Night, don’t despair; the restaurant has an excellent daily menu that changes according to season.

Cowbell marries ecological awareness to the French bistro tradition with dexterity and grace.” – Amy Pataki, Toronto Star Read about Cowbell at 1564 Queen Street West, Toronto Tel. (416) 849-1095 Closed Sunday and Monday

If you’ve caught the localvore bug and you’ll be in Toronto for a few days, you might want to visit the Culinarium, a gourmet food emporium that sells only Ontario-grown goods (their motto is “All Ontario, All the Time.”) Their website posts weekly available farm fresh produce, and they offer a range of organic, artisan or sustainable produced products.
