One Local Summer: week #6

This is way late, but we went on holiday and life has just been really hectic lately! 

The meal came together in a most delightful way after a visit to the farmer’s market. My favorite tomato grower was out of yummy cherry and grape varieties, but had a couple of scrumptious-looking beefsteak varieties. We grabbed two of those and decided to have stuffed mushrooms. The local mushroom grower picked out some smaller criminis for me and voila, a meal was born.

Here are the ingredients:

Beefsteak tomatoes from Gipaanda Greenhouses, Surrey, BC.

Mushrooms from Richmond Specialty Mushrooms, Aldergrove, BC

Herbs from our garden.

Buns from the local bakery.

Salad from the garden. 


I confess there was a bit of shredded parmigiano reggiano, which is definitely not local, in the tomato stuffing. It was a pretty yummy dinner except I forgot to place a wedge of Little Qualicum Cheeseworks brie on the top to melt before serving!
