Tidings’ Lynn Ogryzlo Hits The Markets

By / Magazine / July 11th, 2011 / 1

Culinary activist, and Tidings contributor, Lynn Ogryzlo will be visiting Ontario farmer’s markets throughout the summer to promote her latest book, The Ontario Table. In addition to signing books, Lynn will be on-hand to issue ‘The Ontario Table $10 Challenge’: If every household in Ontario spends $10 of their weekly grocery budget on local food, there would be a $2.4 billion influx into the province’s economy each year. “During this book tour I look forward to connecting with farmers, artisans and gourmands at some of Ontario’s best harvest festivals and local food events while promoting the $10 a week challenge, which encourages Ontarians to support our local farmers and create a more sustainable agricultural system in our province,” says Orgyzlo.

The Ontario Table is a cookbook and agricultural guide that introduces consumers to local growers, and features over 100 recipes that utilize local produce. Each Ontario-inspired recipe is accompanied by VQA, Ontario and fruit wine pairing suggestions, and beautiful colour photography. The Ontario Table ($29.95) is now available at Chapters/Indigo, local farmers’ markets, wineries, and select food shops throughout Ontario. Lynn Ogyrzlo was a guest on CBC Radio’s Fresh Air yesterday  and discussed her new book and the Ontario Table $10 Challenge. Ontario foodies can also catch Lynn on CH Morning Live this morning for a special cooking segment showcasing one of her delicious recipes from The Ontario Table.

Lynn Ogryzlo is an international award-winning author of the Niagara Cooks, a from-farm-to-table cookbook that went on to win ‘The Best Local Food Cookbook in the World’, Gourmand World Cookbook Awards, Paris, France. As a culinary activist, Ogryzlo has been a champion of local foods for over 22 years. She is the founder of The Niagara Culinary Trail, an agricultural organization that introduces consumers to the best farmers in the region.
