Foodie Friday | Fish, DIY Butchering, etc

Eat Local London's guide to SW Ontario Fish

Bento boxes for back-to-school
"Crafty parents are taking cues from the Japanese and going bento to create cute, nutritious meals that no kid can refuse."

Nice to Meat You
Note: This one is not for vegetarians, vegans or the faint of heart.

"Chef Farr is part of a young, DIY butchery movement that is gaining traction across America. He recently began both sausage making and animal butchery workshops to give people the chance to understand their food more personally."

Provincial Government (Ontario) pitches in to promote "buy local"
"With the announcement of these new projects, the four-year Ontario Market Investment Fund program has invested more than $3 million in 62 projects to date."

 Food Writer at Large reviews The Only on King
"Harding and Schubert are among the wave of skilled contemporary cooks who embrace the tenets of eating local, sustainable, seasonal, fresh and organic. This is not just lip-service; this is the real thing. To their credit they are at the forefront of everything that is good about the local and organic movement. They possess a superior knowledge of traditional and homegrown cuisine. Although they are culinary purists and identify with the Slow Food movement, they are pragmatic in their approach with a requisite amount of skepticism."
