Pork souvlaki... Greece's Friday night dinner

Pork souvlaki has always been one of my favourite dishes. My family is Greek and I grew up spending my summers on the island of Kefalonia, where we’d eat souvlakia pretty much every week. While in North America we may order pizza on a Friday night, in Greece it’s souvlakia.

There is nothing as wonderful as enjoying a sizzling barbecue with a chilled well-matched drink, this adds to the beauty of even barbecuing in the first place. BBQ Bros excellently put this food and drink pairing chart together to make your barbecue all the better.

Fairs and Farmers: A Perfect Pairing

Fairs are more than midways and carnival games. They offer a great opportunity to see and sample the season’s local harvest and to meet the farmers who produce it. Farmers work hard all year to feed their families as well as the people of Ontario. They love being able to talk to you about their passion for agriculture as well as answer any questions you might have about where your meat, fruit and vegetables come from.

Taiwanese Pork Belly Bao... and a craft beer pairing

One of my favourite Taiwanese dishes is the gua bao. You may have seen versions of the “bao” at some of your favourite restaurants, but the gua bao is a specific kind of steamed bun sandwich typically filled with braised pork belly, cucumber, pickled mustard greens, cilantro and crushed peanuts.

Char-Grilled Pork Chops with Chimichurri & Roasted Corn Salad

Brittany Stager

There’s nothing like firing up the grill on a busy weeknight or hosting a friendly backyard BBQ on the weekend. Best of all, summer-time brings an abundance of fresh vegetables, fruits, and meats that are ready for grilling! Ontario produces some of the best grill-ready foods, like mushrooms, corn, zucchini, peaches, and of course pork!
