Local food lovers will have a unique opportunity to taste delicious Ottawa Valley flavours done up with an delicately spiced exotic flair, when chef Garth Watterson, prepares and serves a mouthwatering three course Asian Fusion sit-down meal using ingredients from Ottawa Valley Food Co-operative local food producers.

You will have a chance to taste dishes like; green scallion crepes with roasted duck and micro greens, salad rolls with shaved beef and herbs, mild creamy chicken curry with seasonal vegetables and sides of flavourful and distinctive dips and sauces, topped off with baked apple roses with sweet corn pudding garnished with spun maple sugar and a coconut reduction- and many more dishes to savour!

This will also be a great chance to try a glass or two of some local craft brews like; Square Timber’s Timber Crib Pale Ale and Deacons Seat Wheat Beer, along with Whitewater Brewery’s Farmer’s Daughter and their Midnight Stout. As well at the cash bar you will find a fine selection of Ontario wines, and local non-alcoholic beverages including freshly brewed locally roasted coffee.
Following dinner the fundraising live auction with auctioneer Mike O’Grady is guaranteed to entertain. There will be plenty of chances to bid on a wide array of interesting and creative auction items including; a weekend at an off-grid cottage, cross country ski lessons, local food baskets, a beer and pizza night, gift certificates for massages, guitar lessons, and gift certificates for the Whitewater Brew pub – the list goes on!
