The cooking demos are all about Kingston’s best chefs coming together with local producers to share their knowledge and passion for local food with the public. Each Saturday in July and August will feature a different chef from one of Kingston’s best restaurants. The chef will share info about what’s in season, how to pick the best products and demonstrate a simple local food recipe that folks can make at home. Each demo will also feature the farmers who produced the food sharing some of their growing secrets and talking about their farm.
These days there is a real interest in eating locally, and for good reason, but it can sometimes be a daunting task to learn how to source, cook and store the season’s bounty. These demos are focused on inspiring people to use more local food at home and giving them the skills to do so. The public can watch the demo and then turn around and buy all the ingredients to make the recipe at home from the market vendors on the square. This year’s series is generously presented by Mobile Kitchens Canada.
