Harvest Food & Drink: A Chance to Connect With Food Lovers



Last Saturday I had a great time as an exhibitor in my first food and drink show! Harvest Food & Drink is a first-time food show venture from craft show veterans Emily and Colleen, the ladies famous for Handmade Harvest, the popular craft show that brings crafters and d.i.y. aficionados to Almonte each year.


Most exhibitors sampled food and drink for the hungry masses, and since my book isn't edible, I decided to hand out free recipes! I reminded people that even though they can't eat it now, they could eat it later! People enjoyed my recipes for Four-Herb Bruschetta, Smoked Salmon Toasts and my newest cocktail, the Minty Gin Lemonade!



Two out of three of the recipes I handed out are featured in my coffee table book, and I was happy to sell some books to happy shoppers! Lucky shoppers Ryan and his wife Lisa were the winners of a draw for one of my original photos, framed and ready to hang at home. I hope they enjoy this photo, which was taken at Medlock Ames Winery in the Alexander Valley in California.


Harvest Food & Drink was a great experience, and I had a fantastic helper for the day in my lovely mom, who is always so supportive! The wine crates that were generously gifted to me by Clay, Beckta's Director of Operations, looked amazing after a nice coat of stain and they really improved the look of my table. I enjoyed meeting new food lovers and sharing space with my friendly show neighbours, Perth Brewing Company and Rockway Vineyards.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to chat and take a look at my book, and a big thank you to those who purchased a copy! 

A great gift for the food-lover in your family,
