Last-minute change – Moved to Wed. Sep. 6!
PEI-native Chef Charlotte Langley’s “Maritime Chic” permeates the many fun and interesting food projects she has on the go. She is the founder of Scout Canning and Events, offering a range of small-batch artisanal canned goods, and the animating force behind a slew of fabulous food events from pop-up oyster bars to Farm-to-Table Dinners parties. Known for her combination of East Coast hospitality and sassy personality, Charlotte brings more than a decade of food passion to the table.
Charlotte will be diving into some of her favourite topics: traceability, seafood, canning and the exciting tension between traditional vs non-traditional things, be they recipes or restaurants.
Table Talks include a seasonal meal prepared by The Depanneur founder Len Senater.
As the weather has taken on the first hint of chill, but all the lovely late summer veg are still available, I’ll be making a warm Soupe au Pistou; Southern France’s lighter version of minestrone topped with a fresh basil pesto direct from The Dep garden.
And since we’re talking about canned fish, and to keep the Provençal vibe going, I’ll make one of my favourite summer meals — Salade Niçoise. The Niçoise is a classic combination of Provençal flavours: briny olives & meaty tuna (or chickpeas and artichoke hearts for the vegetarians), creamy new potatoes & eggs, bright green beans and juicy tomatoes, tangy vinaigrette and lots of fresh herbs from our garden, all on a bed of baby greens. Served with a wedge of grilled baguette.
#vegetarian, #vegan and/or #glutenfree options will be available.
Fresh seasonal fruit pie, baked by Leslie Lindsay in the wood ovens at Dufferin Grove Park will be available for dessert. $5
