Harvest Table Lansdowne Park

Savour The Fruits & Labor Of Local Harvest At the Harvest Table Luncheon at Lansdowne Park

By on August 12, 2015

Thoughts of summer easily conjures up images of local farmlands rich in bounty and having delicious ingredients fresh and accessible for our meals.  We are very fortunate that we have a great relationship here in Ottawa with our farmers and local producers.

Savour Ottawa promotes all things local and residents of the Ottawa area couldn’t be more delighted. It’s a win-win situation for all involved. Local farmers and producers get to see the outcome… ‘fruits of their labor’ when they see regular customers buying their products every weekend at the local farmers market. And like I said it’s a win-win for us (the consumer) as we get to be spoiled by their bounty…like the annual Harvest Table gourmet luncheon.
Hosting its fifth annual Harvest Table on Sunday, August 30th in the beautifully renovated Horticulture building at the new Lansdowne Park, Savour Ottawa couldn’t be more pleased in regards the success of this annual event – as it typically sells as out very fast and for good reason.

Spoiling us with their riches, the Harvest Table is a collaboration of efforts between Savour Ottawa, local farmers & producers alongside with some of Ottawa’s talented chefs as they give back to the Ottawa community. Giving back in form of a beautiful multi-course epicure luncheon prepared by local chefs using local ingredients…just a stone’s throw from the Farmer’s Market at Lansdowne Park.

Enjoy a family-style feast sharing the company of producers, chefs and other guests.

  • Perfect dish to have on this rainy day...flavourful and spicy beef tartar served with my favorite béarnaise mayonnaise, brioche toast, small salad (sorry I ate it before the photo was taken😋) and typically served with Yukon fries. I actually substituted the fries for another salad and was pleasantly treated with their delicious tomato soup on top of everything - now that’s going over and beyond😍! Can’t forget too mention that service from both the back and front of the house was exceptional!!😊 #foodie #foodporn #foodphotography #foodgasm #supportlocal #ottawaeats #nomnom #613eats #tartar #beeftartare #béarnaise #recommended

  • The many courses I had @cabaneaupieddecochon This year’s gluttony fest was inspired by Morocco. Everything from a foie gras cake, puff omelette with cumin, a delicious piglet stuffed 3 ways, a salmon ‘kefte’ dish, sausage stuffed calamari, some tagine dishes and ofcourse some decadently rich desserts. Dishes were uniquely presented and most of them had a foie gras component to them😋 Till next year!! #foodie #foodporn #foodpornshare #foodblogger #nomnom #instafood #gluttony #chefmartinpicard #mapleseason #sugarshack #overindulgence #foodcoma #travelblogger #bucketlist #foodphotography #foodexplorer #foodlover #somuchfood #somuchfun
