WORLD OF FLAVOUR
The Multicultural Council and the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers are proud to present World of Flavour;
a summer celebration of food and culture.
Each week we will share videos and recipes which capture unique tastes and combinations from around the globe
using locally-grown vegetables.
The videos feature local greenhouse growers along with our Carrousel of the Nations representatives preparing delicious traditional meals and sharing their histories and their stories.
Each of their recipes will be available to download and make for yourself at home.
Twice each week we will also share recipes from the staff and friends of the MCC which reflect their heritage and which utilize wonderful local tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers.
Visit the OGVG website for more delicious recipes, and look for locally-grown OGVG produce when you buy your vegetables.
