This past weekend, one of our favourite Niagara-on-the-Lake winery venues, Chateau des Charmes, welcomed the heads of all the provincial liquor boards from across Canada for their annual get-together! As we understand it, this is a bi-coastal event that switches from the Okanagan in B.C. to Niagara on alternate years ... this year belongs to Niagara!
Once of the things Chateau des Charmes wanted to highlight is the incredible bounty that Niagara has to offer.
Where to start? Well, in Niagara, we go to the market, of course!!
We returned to the studio with our mitts chock full of raw 'veggie' ingredients like new potatoes, radishes, cucumbers, leeks, asparagus, turnips, carrots, beets, celery and artichokes which all make guest appearances in these centrepieces! Then, we proceed to marry our 'foodie finds' with flowers!
The results always seem to garner lots of attention and conversation over the dinner table ... fun and beautiful!
