St. Thomas, ON - Forging local connections with food - A new committee named Relish
has formed in St. Thomas with a mandate to promote local food production in the
region. The name Relish was chosen because it means to “derive a lot of enjoyment
from something”. The first item we want you to enjoy is the Harvest.
The Relish committee branched away from FreshFest to focus their efforts on local
agriculture and producers. Ultimately, they will work to provide unique food events
that centre around what is produced locally.
For their inaugural event, Relish Harvest, they are partnering with the STEAM Barista
Competition to host a Harvest Dinner. This dinner will feature 4 local chefs, all
sourcing food from surrounding farms, to highlight the bounty available in the region.
The delicious meal will be accentuated with local beverage options from our wineries,
breweries, and tea producers. The event is being appropriately held at the elevated
park, or in the case of rain, the St. Thomas Elgin Public Art Centre. Let your eyes
relish the sights as your taste buds relish the flavours, and your ears relish the
sounds of Letters from Hawthorne.
Tickets are $50 which includes a 4-course meal served picnic style, with a welcome
drink, and live music. Tickets are limited and must be purchased ahead of time -
