Arowhon Pines in Algonquin Park is holding its 4th Annual “100 Mile Challenge” Barbecue on Monday, August 4th, 2014.
The concept is based on the food blog / book "The 100 Mile Diet" by James MacKinnon and Alisa Smith, whose challenge was to create and execute a menu using food sourced within 100 miles. The book raised awareness that locally produced food is not only environmentally friendlier but delicious as well!
Arowhon Pines features local food into their daily menus for guests whenever they can. Food is then prepared with care and respect by our team of chefs. The barbecue menu this year will include fresh lake trout, Lake Huron whitefish, local heritage pork and hand-picked vegetables from Muskoka farms. There are seasonal salads, meat and vegetarian entrees on the grill and homemade desserts and ice cream.
There will also be live music, local artists, a beer tent and boat rides of the Algonquin lakes! Guests will get a chance to meet the farmers and suppliers from the region.
Tickets are $35 per person, and going fast! Noon to 3 p.m.
Reservations required: (705) 633-5661
P.S. Early August also kicks off our commitment to our monarch butterfly way station program, where butterflies feed in our gardens before their long migration south to Mexico!
