Fermentation and Pickling

This is my first attempt at Pickling and Fermentation. The pickling went well. Where I had trouble was trying to figure the right amount of pickling spices to use. The brine for the pickling is a simple can’t go wrong recipe.

With the Fermentation process, I got lots of tips from my good friend Amanda. This was an easy and straight forward process once I knew what to do. I didn’t measure the salt amount. There is a scientific way to figure out the right amount. I just played it by ear.

The Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition: Tradition Transformed was created in recognition of Group of Seven member, and Orillia native Franklin Carmichael. Now in its 18th year, this juried show calls on artists from across the country to submit work that embraces, challenges, comments, critiques, echoes, re-works or strengthens images, perceptions and interpretations of Canadian landscape through the artist’s chosen medium. Heavily rooted in Carmichael’s beliefs on traditionalism and classical modes of artistic expression, Carmichael himself was very much invested in contemporary artistic styles having been inspired by his native Canadian surroundings.

Beef Wellington

This is my way of making this wonderful Christmas Dinner.  I follow a mixed recipe from Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay. Each has a unique way they prepare this dish. I chose to combine the best of both versions to create my own. Enjoy

Beef Wellington is a preparation of fillet steak coated with pâté (often pâté de foie gras) and duxelles, which is then wrapped in parma ham and puff pastry, then baked. Some recipes include wrapping the coated meat in a crêpe to retain the moisture and prevent it from making the pastry soggy.

Frying the Beef for the Wellington
Preparing the mushroom and chestnut mix.

The magic begins when visitors approach the candlelit historic site, as a beautiful amber glow illuminates the famous 17th-century mission.  Candlelit paths guide you throughout the historic site and up to Martyrs’ Shrine, leading to a variety of fun family activities.  he
