I had never before attended Feast of Fields but figured that I should give it a go this year. The Ottawa chapter of the Canadian Organic Growers hosts this event, which teams farmers with local chefs to create small dishes featuring the farmers’ products. I think it’s a great opportunity for farmers to be able to show off their produce outside of a farmers’ market or CSA box and for chefs to show their hand at creativity. Over the past few years, the location for the event has changed and this year, it was appropriately held at the Canada Agriculture Museum in the Central Experimental Farm. There were 21 teams “competing” for fun titles like best dish and best decorations. There was also on-site entertainment; it’s fabulous eating lunch on a hay bale listening to aboriginal drumming (and singing)!
