Celebrating Local Food Month

Our growing local food circle co-creates an evening of community and abundance

Discovering, creating and celebrating the beauty of local food… Members of the Peterborough Dialogues local food circle co-created a dinner of local ingredients on September 28, in a spirit of reconnection with place, community, local food producers, our own yards and gardens, and the harvest season.

The main course was ethically raised local pork tenderloin from The Community Butcher, stuffed with mint pesto, local mushrooms, onions, plums and goat cheese. Other treats and highlights included heirloom tomatoes, Prince Edward County wine, local cheeses and herbs, dinner participant Debbie Wilson’s own honey, and fresh roasted kale chips harvested two hours earlier from member Mark Woolley’s garden.
