Eat with Us

Taste of the Valley – "Eat with us" - Cooking with local Food Video Series

Working with videographer Shawn Behnke we have recorded a series of videos as part of a virtual Taste of the Valley featuring local chefs cooking with and talking about local food. Five separate episodes have been shot in an outdoor kitchen that was set up at Hedgeview Organic Farm, just east of Pembroke in Laurentian Valley. The episodes feature five different chefs from Renfrew County from various local restaurants and catering companies, with all meals being prepared sourcing local food. There are five episodes which will be featured on successive weeks here, starting on Monday, October 18th. The episodes will also be promoted on our social media and we ask that you please share them as well.
