tonight i went to a farmer’s feast at the st. norbert farmer’s market. a celebration of the local harvest, manitoba produce, and the province’s best chefs. it was an incredible night under white tents, lit with tiny delicate lights on strings, a jazz trio and food to make even the most discriminatory foodie lust. oh, the food! mini squash and walnut hamburgers, chocolate chili chicken skewers, roasted vegetable vegan shepherd’s pie, asian potato salad with cilantro, chocolate infused with beets and accented with sea salt, pumpkin tarts, icelandic deserts, goat cheese tarts with tomatoe, northern pike cakes with dill and cucumber sauce……….. how in the world did i ever forget my camera?
all in all, a perfect, warm, september night.
