picnic at the brick works

I love Fall…the familiar smell of wood smoke, the mixed layers of textured sweaters, the cool crisp air, the pulled pork sandwiches…This past October, Hubby and I attended the fourth annual Picnic at the Brick Works in support of Evergreen and Slow Food Torontofor the very first time. Fourth annual? Where the heck have I been? Smoked ham on cheddar biscuits, pulled pork sandwiches (yes, I know I mentioned it already), lamb kabobs, pork bellies, artisanal cheeses & breads, and apple cheddar tarts were only a small part of what we ate (or a large part…sigh…depending on how you look at it). A truly wonderful way to spend an afternoon – chit-chatting with Ontario chefs and local producers, finding out more about the food in our own backyard, seeing what’s still growing in the garden, and picking out a few pumpkins.

Me: “hon, you awake? I need you to talk to me here in this section…”

Hubby: “zzzzzz _ phufff — zzzzzz _ phufff — zzzzzz _ phufff— zzzzzz…”



  • Deirdre Pickford - i’ve never heard of it either!! the food looks delish – those big chunks of parmesan…and the breads….i guess the diet could always start AFTER the picnic!ReplyCancel

  • Janet Eastwood - Oh my, that sounds like a perfect (and delicious) way to spend a Fall afternoon. So much for wishing and waiting for Spring, I want Fall to come! Beautiful pics.ReplyCancel
