Local Caesars

There are so many local foods that excite me in Guelph.  Soon it’s time to harvest local Fiddleheads! Royal City Brewing Company released a perfectly lovely Berlinner Weisse  this week – “No Sleep Till Berlin” –  and of course the Farmers Market in Guelph gets me and my Coco up every Saturday morning at 6:30 to discover what’s new.

But as i prepare for summer i start thinking about Caesars – Canada’s version of ‘Merica’s Bloody Mary.

Dixon’s Distillery of Guelph makes a clever little vodka designed for the Caesar – their “Flaming Caesar Vodka”.   With hints of celery salt, chili heat, and garlic – it makes a great Caesar.  But hey, a picture says a thousand words – so here are 3.000 more that are easy to read.

 

 

 


The harvest

Autumn really is a food lover’s paradise. Consider this haul from the farmers market in Guelph last Saturday. Cornucopia indeed.

It’s also the best of times for Autumnal Ale from up North. Here are two of the best

Lake of Bays 10 Point is a nice, lightly hopped IPA – I love the pine aroma and the bite on the finish.

Muskoka’s Harvest Ale has been repackaged from the original orange label [in part because people thought that it was a pumpkin ale] but the recipe remains the same.

If you hurry you may also catch a keg of Mash ‘n Pumpkins on tap at OX. Pumpkin pie in a pint glass with notes of spice and molasses – delic.
