Good morning beautiful people!

For those of you who didn't see my post on Facebook, here's the dish I'm serving the taster tomorrow at the MasterChef audition. A cumin and fennel short bread, with avocado mousse and two beautiful Argentinian shrimp.

Regardless of the outcome I'm so happy I acted fearlessly and an so excited for the edible adventures to come!

Bought this in Ottawa last weekend at Kowloon Market in Chinatown because I had never seen Schweppes make a cream soda domestically. Everytime I go shopping in Chinatown or a Chinese/Korean/Asian Grocer I'm almost always surprised by items they have and I used to have to visit up to 3 or 4 different Asian Grocery Stores to fulfill our orders for the restaurant and not use Sysco if we could avoid it. Finally enjoying it over ice in the back yard right now. #food613 #nightcap #virginnightcap #creamsoda #newtome #CHINATOWNYOW #chinatown #ottawa #schweppescreamsoda

Breakfast Frittata made for my parents with bacon, onion, Mom's Garden zucchini and herbs, green onion, green peppers and goats cheese. Made with #localfarmedeggs and topped with 4 cheese blend, crumbled ruffled potato chip crust, green onion and cracked pepper. Served along side all corn tortillas, Sriracha and Sour Cream and Chives. It's on one of the last of my "First Line of Local Sustainably Harvested Oak Cutting Boards" since my first production run and sales spree. #food613 #breakfast #frittata #gardenveggies #MomsHerbGarden #castironcooking #FindlaysHeritageCastIron #potatochipcrust #handcrafted #bychefs4chefs #liveedgeoak #cuttingboard #charcuterieboard #sustainableharvestoak #truecooks

A collaborative dinner with my Chris, served up on one of my last few remaining pieces of my 'Original Heritage Farm sourced Sustainably Harvested Cherrywood Serving/Charcuterie Board Line'!! The awesome meal we cooked and shared was BBQ Marinated Outside Round Steak (neighbor requested Med-Well and I obliged him) with Grilled Garlic Scape, and Cabbage Leaf Bundles stuffed with Onion, Cherry Tomato, garlic scape, garden herbs and soy sauce and everything was finished with Garden Herbs and Edible Flower Petals grown 15 feet from the BBQ. The steak was marinated in Soy Sauce, a mix of fresh garden Herbs, Thai Chili Flakes, brunoised onion, minced garlic scapes and some chili powder. The veggies are grilled garlic scapes, BBQ then Steamed Cabbage Leaf Wrapped Bundles of cherry tomatoes, onion, Neighbor's Mom's Garden Banana Pepper, and fresh yellow beans, herbs and more ingredients I forgot. #food613 #dinner #bbq #neighborbbq #steak #gardenveggies #freshherbs #cherrywoodboard #handcrafted #bychefs4chefs #liveedge #lanarkcounty #rideauferry #handmilledwood #oneyearcuredwood #local #farmtotableservicewear #cuttingboard #sustainableharvestedtree

The board on the right is Lanark County Cherry wood and about 3.5 feet long. It's sustainably harvested from my neighbor's multi generational farm across the road from my childhood home and workshop. Would make a great farm to table service piece for a meat/cheese/charcuterie spread. $75 PM me for details. Can deliver to Ottawa for a little extra. #food613 #cherrywood #handmilled #handcrafted #bychefs4chefs #liveedge #charcuterie #farmtotableservicewear #cuttingboard #sustainableharvest #lanarkcounty #woodworkers_of_ig

Did up a nice pair of thick milled,large one piece maple serving blocks. They would be suitable for a large cheese/charcuterie tray for a group or even an entree served family style. Finished in a food safe water based poly. Hand milled, cured in the barn for over a year, sanded then finished myself. The wood came from my neighbor's multi generational farm across the road when they were sustainably cleaning up their tree lines. Another part of the farm is making an appearance at the table and not just as the local food but the locally made and sourced farm to table service wear. $65/Each or $110/ Pair. Each block measures 16x13.5x2 inches. Can deliver to Ottawa for a little extra.

Pair of similar thick cut Lanark Country Cherrywood Chacuterie Boards $55 for the pair. They are cut from one board so they can be put together and their wood grains match like puzzle pieces.

That moment when you're feeling like all's good and the Irie Irie effects of 'Nature's Herb' have given this rude boy the munchies and you remember you still have half of the Jerked Beef Sammy leftovers in a doggy bag (EVEN WITH THE PICKLES!!) from your stellar solo lunch from @fieldhouseperth #food613 #lunch #serioussandwich #jerkbeef #foccaciabread #midnightsnack #irie #rudeboy #munchies #subtext
If you're passing through Perth YOU MUST STOP BY AND CHECK OUT @fieldhouseperth  I don't have enough good things to say about this place. If you're  a local and haven't eaten there you're missing out on one of the Town of Perth's hidden treasures. #food613 #lunch #dessert #cruffin #hamcheesecroissant #cafe #goodbusinesspeople
Treating myself to a mind bendingly good Jerk Beef Sammy on in house made Foccacia from the one and only @fieldhouseperth. I'm also getting hooked on their Americanos/ their coffee in general. This place opened up with a strong baking/pastry game and its only gotten better since the  much better.. Juliana, Andrew and their team should be proud of what they've created. To have a Cafe of this quality in the small town of Perth  is such a rarity. #food613 #lunch #serioussandwich #jerkbeef #foccaciabread #americanocoffee #Lanarkcounty #perth

Sorry for the low quality Cell Phone pic  but if you fuss too much with pictures your pancakes loose their crispiness and they're a sad sogfy affair. I believ as a Chef that during mid summer's bounty of exceptional Ontario produce that using maple syrup as a pancake topper is Basic as a BITCH named Becky!! (NOT THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH MAPLE SYRUP!!! DIDN'T WANT TO PISS PEOPLE OFF!) Check out these baller assed Brown Butter - Grand Marnier- 70% Dark Cacao- Buttermilk Pancakes topped with microplaned Lime Zest, Creme Fraiche and Mom's still warm Blueberry Jam and some lemon balm, Heirloom Heritage Mint, Thai Basil and Sweet Woodroofe from Mom's Herb Garden.

Egyptian Onions that are a perennial in one of my Mom's garden and are awesome pickled. Kinda like a strong ramp or wild leek. They pick up wonderfully especially their funky looking seed pod top thingys. I bet @topshelfpreserves could work some super exclusive small batch magic with them if I hooked her up with some of these. I remember her Pickles when we worked together back in the day at @backlanecafe (R.I.P.) and logic dictates her awesome pickle skills have only grown in their range and strength. She's not only a powerhouse of a woman but a powerhouse as a person in general. #food613 #slowfood #heirloomvariety #egyptianonions #theygrowwildatmyhouse #pickling #pickles #local #smallbatch #supportsmallbusiness #sheissupertalented #femalebusinessrolemodel #feminist #imamalefeminist

Garlic chives that grow wild on the edges of my Mom's garden are growing up through the granite foundation stones of the original S.F.D.C.I. building when it was known as Rideau High School (I believe). All he left from the original building was the elaborate entrance arch which still stands in the parking lot of the medical centre that occupies the former school. #food613 #gardening #sortofForaging #wildgarlicchives #heritagestones #smithsfallshistory #neatidea

Sticky Cumin-fennel-corriander scented chicken roasted on a plank of freshly sawn cherry wood.  Honey, sumac and fish sauce glaze making it nice and caramelized. #food613 #dinner #wfd #roastchicken #fennel #sumac #cherrywood #truecooks

Late nite snack: Tater tot poutine. Tater tots with Cajun seasoning finish, pork and chicken gravy spiked with Lebatt 50, chunks of roast pork loin, braised onions, a bunch of shredded gouda, old cheddar, gruyere, and a jalapeño monterrey jack, green onions, crushed up Lay's Potato Chips. Who needs sleeping pills when you have poutine?? Don't get me wrong an Ativan does wonders for helping me sleep but there's nothing like the all natural sleepiness that comes from pork based gravy, melted cheese and crispy potatoes. #food613 #midnitesnack #tatertotpoutine #sortoflocal #twobeastgravy #4cheeseeventhoufhshouldbecurds  #cheapbeerinallfood #childhoodmemories #lovemesometatertots #truecooks

Wood coal grilled cabbage 'steak', braised in Lebatt 50 and pork stock with Mom's Apple Butter and Maple Venison sausage my uncle made (by made i mean he shot it then made into sausage) and some toasted and ground cumin, corriander and fennel seeds. I think @ottuncensored is onto something with the Lebatt 50 in everything #food613 #local #castiron #woodcoals #authentic #venison #sausage #truecooks #cheapbeerinallfood #simple #dinner
How to cook Porchetta Step 3: After roasting it for an hour at 325 F let it rest on a bed of onions and pour it's drippings over the onions and add a chunk of butter and some Lebat 50 in the style of @ottuncensored and toss the onions in the oven at 425 F for 20 mins while the porchetta is resting on a cutting board and then you have an awesome sauce of porchetta pan jus, cheap beer and glazed onions. Gotta keep it posh with the Lebat 50. #food613 #porchetta #local #castiron #woodcoals #authentic #pork #truecooks #slowfood #patience #cheapbeerinallfood #porchettaisagoodstrippername

Cooking Porchetta Step 2: Mark all sides until there is a nice crust developing. Don't be afraid of a little (or alot) of smokey char. At this point it will smell so good that you're halfway convinced that it's an un-holy act of the devil to tempt you into eating it before it's ready. Resist the goat - legged ones advances and remember that there is only 3 more hours of waiting until it's ready. #food613 #porchetta #local #castiron #woodcoals #authentic #pork #truecooks #slowfood #patience

Wasn't feeling well yesterday and my parents were both working hard at different antique shows so I raided Mom's garden for her heirloom yellow pear tomatoes, different peppers (chocolate, banana, and green) as well as onions, garlic and herbs. I assembled it all together into a yellow tomato sauce based chicken cacciatore. Since my stomach was fucked I only had the sauce reduced and mounted with a nob of butter. Comfort food. #food613 #foodporn #truecooks #slowfood #gardening #local #italian

Quite possibly the strangest looking tomato I've ever seen in my 10 years in the industry. Picked it from the community garden down the street from my condo. #food613 #foodfreakshow #gardening #local #slowfood #mutant #xmentomato
Cold smoked then Beer battered Cod. The smoke is just the right amount and not too aggressive and the batter is light and airy without greasiness. Chef @kyleproulx17 and his team at @lowertownottawa killed it on this dish, paired with one of their in house Radlers and some good music on the stereo I'm in heaven. #food613 #fishnchips #local #talent #radlersRock

Remnants of three breakfast sandwiches that my room mates and I absolutely crushed as hangover fodder after a very late night.

Some good fondant and buttercream work my Sister-in-Law did on the farm themed birthday cake for one of the family elders at the family reunion earlier this week. The grass and water are pressed out fondant and the fence and grass around it are buttercream and rolled up fondant for the fence posts. She did the baking/icing and stuff in the kitchen/dining room area of a camper. Mad respect for what she pulled off in such a tight space. This picture is when it's 75% complete since I had to leave the reunion early and head back to Ottawa. I wonder what the finished product looked like. #food613 #foodporn #trailerbaking #birthdaycake #bakingskills

Suckling pig special for two for my family. We sent them one of the heads to pick at as a garnish. Yes, you read that right. I used a pig face as a garnish. Most baller garnish ever, hands down. #food613 #foodporn #truecooks #slowfood #playwithyourfood #fathersday
