Beginning Saturday June 24th, there will be free chef cooking demos at the Kingston Public Market every Saturday in July and August (except Canada Day).
The cooking demos will be held in the Springer Market Square courtyard between 11 am until noon.
Kingston’s best chefs will be there to share their knowledge and passion for local food in partnership with those local food producers.
A different chef from one of the city’s best restaurants will be hosting each Saturday, discussing what foods are in season, how to choose the best products, and demonstrating a simple local food recipe that can be made at home.
Each session will also include the farmers who produced the food and they will share some of their growing secrets and talk about their farm.
In a release, Downtown Kingston! said: “These days there is a real interest in eating locally, and for good reason, but it can sometimes be a daunting task to learn how to source, cook and store the season’s bounty. These demos are focused on inspiring people to use more local food at home and giving them the skills to do so. The public can watch the demo and then turn around and buy all the ingredients to make the recipe at home from the market vendors on the square.”
This series of cooking demos will start off on June 24th with Chef Eric Brennan from Le Chien Noir Bistro accompanied by a variety of market producers.
Members of the public can attend these demos for free and samples will be available to purchase for $2 while supplies last.
Below is a list of local chefs scheduled to host sessions during the summer of 2017.
