 Our first two backyard pumpkins were sacrificed for this sweet and spicy Thai pumpkin soup! #vegansoup #cookingclass #harvestfood #eatlocallygrown  For a dessert function, I decided to go Dutch on this one. The always delicious boterkoek #desserts #tbaycatering #dutchfood #imarriedintothis  This is whipped buttered turnip infused with fresh thyme. I had no idea before this fall that turnip was this tasty! #tbaycatering #cookingclasses #eatlocal  And now for the main- farm to table style: sirloin tip roast with red wine au jus, from "George Washington" the cow; honey glazed carrots from the garden and warm roasted potato salad with fresh tarragon and crisp bacon, all from the Tuutilla farm. So great. #farmtotable #eatlocal #chefinhome #tbaycatering @nita.heerema.tuuttila @farmerkris77  My tomatoes are finally ripening! So many tomato dishes to come... #eatlocal #freshgardenbeauties
 Main course for the Harvest class this evening: Crabapple cider roasted chicken with maple candied Hubbard squash and balsamic roasted Brussels sprouts #eatlocal #cookingclass #tbaycatering  This crazy bright red colour is the real thing- from piles of crab apples cooked down for a delicious apple cider #eatinseason #fallharvest #tbaycatering #homesteading  Harvest dinner tonight, with @belluzfarms sweet corn and Italian sausage rice pilaf with local onions, garlic, kale, grape tomatoes and basil #eatlocal #thunderbaycountrymarket #fallfood  Yummy palette cleanser of @prime_gelato Limone sorbetto #eatlocal #creamydeliciousness #dairyfree @nita.heerema.tuuttila @farmerkris77  Tonight's treat for a dessert meeting (every meeting should be a dessert meeting): fresh fruit parfait in a mason jar with Chantilly cream and pumpkin seed granola- oh and a drizzle of raspberry coulis #glutenfreedesserts #tbaycatering #imadeextra
 Looking forward to tonight's Harvest cooking class! #cookingclasses #harvestfood #fallflowers  The solution to "oh no- all my tomatoes are ripening at the same time!!" Slow simmered marinara sauce with onions, garlic and herbs. I used a food processor to smooth it out for the kids and avoided having to blanch and peel! #eatlocal #homesteading #tomatoesgalore  Snack time for a big 10 year old birthday party tonight- all Mexican themed! #mexicanfood #cookingclasses #happybirthdayHope  Second course: roasted corn and pepper chowder with coconut milk and cilantro with @farmerkris77 own fresh corn and vegetables! @nita.heerema.tuuttila #soups #tbaycatering #chefinhome  With impending fear of frost I have harvested my garden basil to create jars of pesto for winter recipes! #bottleupsummer #homesteading #eatlocal #herbheaven
 With my tomatoes still ripening and my vegan father in town here's another one! Tomato and roasted garlic bisque with purple kale and basil #soups #veganeats #dairyfreedeliciousness #tbaycatering  Maple pecan blondies just got fudged! #dessert #tbaycatering  And now for dessert! Our last course- lemon tart with cream and raspberry coulis #dessert #lemonyluscious #personalfavorite @nita.heerema.tuuttila @farmerkris77  First course of a five course "chef in home" meal for a fabulous couple celebrating 15 years! My classic Caesar with pumpernickel croutons and freshly grated Asiago #anniversarydinner #tbaycatering #splendidsalad @nita.heerema.tuuttila  A fabulous way to use @debruinsgreenhouses tomatoes and basil- a light egg white omelette with feta and mushrooms. Perfect on a toasted bagel, or pita or anything really! #eatlocal #vegetariancooking #mylunchtoday
