The Harrow Fair Cookbook: Recipes Inspired by one of Canada’s Oldest Country Fairs by Moira Sanders, Lori Elstone, and Beth Goslin Maloney

This book is so wonderful, so bang on with its Essex County inspired recipes that it actually makes me homesick to read it, especially on a day like today.

While other people were carving turkeys this evening, I made tomato, fresh mozzarella, and pesto sandwiches. Oh, and don’t forget the cheddar loonies. Felt like home.

Recommended recipes: tomato jam, cheddar loonies, buttered pickerel, sweet corn casserole, apricot jam, and rhubarb custard pie.

ps: If you haven’t been to Essex County during the summer, I highly recommend it. There’s no better scenery, fairs, or food.
