Apples Of My Eye
A captivating lecture, fantastic apple-inspired dishes and wonderfully informative experts made the Ontario Apple Celebration at Toronto’s Jamie Kennedy Wine Bar especially scrumptious this season! Real-fruit place settings adorned each table, where Ontario apple growers imparted wisdom on the versatility and variety of our own apples. The fruit carries the rep of being a healthy snack and an ingredient that can be thrown into virtually everything – from decadent dishes like sweet-potato pancakes with apple-compote salad, to spreads like apple butter (my personal favourite). But I was also reminded that apples can function as a gift for your teacher, a traditional game (bobbing for apples), and a very popular decor prop! The best apples are local ones, so this season, grab yourself a bushel – you will undoubtedly find a way to use them all!
