Event description

Description

Harvest Wednesdays is a local culinary series inspired by the Gladstone’s long-time investment in four ‘shares’ of a local Community Shared Agriculture Farm, Chick-a-biddy Acres Farms. By showcasing their local produce each week alongside guest chefs, community organizations and local producers, Harvest Wednesdays sparks conversations about Community Shared Agriculture, eating locally for global change, bridging the gap between urban and rural and of course, enjoying seasonal Ontario produce, picked from the land just the day before.

You're invited to our beloved Harvest Wednesday's Sip and Savour event in the Gallery, featuring tastings from 15+ local producers! With sampling stations set up around the second floor gallery space, you can sip and savour local wines, meats, cheeses and specialty foods along with Hors D’oeuvres prepared by the Gladstone’s executive Chef Katie Venables Lloyd.

TV personality, cookbook author and bon vivant Bob Blumer will host the tasting and prepare delicious delicacies for you. Come hungry and prepare to be dazzled by the host with the most, inspiring speeches and of course, delicious food! Bob Blumer will also have his amusing and artistic "culinary inventions du jour" drawings on display!

About Harvest Wednesdays

From August 24 to October 12, we invite you to connect with Ontario’s growing season through a Harvest Table Dinner in the Ballroom or a Sip and Savour in the Gallery. Check out all the dates below!

What is Community Shared Agriculture (C.S.A.)

Community Shared Agriculture allows city residents to have direct access to high quality, fresh produce grown locally by regional farmers. When you become a member of a CSA, you're purchasing a “share” of vegetables from a regional farmer. It is a relationship of shared bounty and shared risk.

About Bob Blumer

Along with hosting the television series Surreal Gourmet, Glutton for Punishment and World’s Weirdest Restaurants, Bob has written five acclaimed cookbooks and serves as an Ambassador to Second Harvest in Toronto spreading the word about food rescue and hunger relief. He even designed one of the Gladstone Hotel’s artist designed hotel rooms called the Surreal Gourmet.
