A message from Rachael:

Thank you for the OCO Nomination!

Please let us know by tomorrow (Jan 24) if you are interested!

Will you be mine?
February is a great time to buy a treat for yourself or someone else you love. Whether you celebrate Valentine's day or not, you might want to try some truffles (in the 'chocolate' section under 'pantry') from Ambrosia Pastry Co., or maybe some of their cinnamon marshmallows (in the 'pantry' section)! My stash of flavoured chocolate bars from Anna Tolazzi is running low so I need to restock! How about caramels from Hugo and Nate or those yummy roasted nuts from Jewels Under the Kilt? For a spicy chocolate cookie you have to try Love Bites from New Moon Kitchen as a February treat.

Local Dairy Spotlight

We've been enjoying the yogurt, cheese, butter and more from Local Dairy for years now. In fact I need to reorder some of their mozzarella, cultured butter and their amazing ghee for the next pickup as we love using the ghee to make popcorn on the stove and the butter is lovely smeared on bread or pancakes. Mozzarella is necessary on pizza and it tastes almost like butter. The Oaxaca and Chihuahua soft cheeses melt beautifully on nachos or in dips.

The Singh family is dedicated to making tasty cheese. eatdrink Magazine has written an article on Local Dairy and you can find it at

Here's a quote from the article:
"We get the freshest milk from one or two local farms five or ten minutes away.”
Milk quality is crucial in Singh’s business. “A cow is a very finicky animal. Lots of factors make a difference in the milk, even the weather. Of course the milk changes based on what the cow eats. If a cow is force fed protein for example, some of the other micronutrients are lost. A cow is most happy when outside grazing and eating at its own speed,” says Singh. He also notes that the milk must be antibiotic-free in order to make his cultured dairy products from it.

Maple Custard Recipe

You had me at custard. Jon from The Local Kitchener  has made a tasty dessert that is 99% local. It's a shame vanilla beans aren't local... Check out the recipe on our blog at
