Locally-grown food will be celebrated at La Place Rendez-Vous this Friday (March 23) during Cloverbelt's “Winter Farm to Fork” event.
Those who attend will receive a three-course meal created by a local chef using locally-sourced ingredients from Cloverbelt's producers.
“All the main ingredients used in preparing the meal come from local producers and we are really excited about that, especially given that it is so late in the season for fresh produce,” said Anita Marcotte, Cloverbelt community coordinator for the Rainy River District.
She stressed this will be a fun-filled evening where the entertainment lies in the carefully-crafted dishes.
The menu will indicate which producers provided the ingredients used in each individual item.
Marcotte said those who try the food will have a better understanding of what a locally-prepared meal, using naturally-grown ingredients, tastes like.
“It's a great opportunity to come out and taste something you wouldn't get at a restaurant normally,” she reasoned.
Marcotte is encouraging area residents to come out and enjoy the event, which will run from 5-7 p.m. in the restaurant section of the Rendez-Vous.
“Seating is limited but we want as many people to come out, test the restaurant, and try something new,” she said.
“Coming out to this meal is a way of supporting our local producers, and our local economy,” Marcotte added.
