The Love of Seasonal Food

Sarah Baeumler February 07, 2017 1 Comments

Not so long ago, the type of food we ate was based on seasons. Winters were based around root vegetables and hearty carbohydrates, summers were about berries and other juicy fruits. However, now that exporting and the free markets are changing our stores and buying habits, we can find almost any product year round in our local grocery store. Food is such an important part of our existence, and quality should never be jeopardized. The fact that we take it for granted is something that needs to change, and educating our children about the importance of supporting local and ethically produced food is something we can do immediately.

Therefore, it is refreshing to see that many restaurants and grocery stores are starting to realize that local, quality, seasonal products are what our diets need, and what our world requires. Treadwell restaurant in Niagara-on-the-Lake is one of those places that are embracing the delicious and varied food produce available in Ontario and Canada. Their menu is driven by the availability of their local suppliers, what's in season and the quality of the produce; and the result is spectacular.

The menu is concise and offers farm-to-table dishes that will be sure to fulfil all dietary needs and satisfy the desires of your taste buds. The small but cozy space allows you to watch the talented chefs at work, providing a transparent and ethereal experience. The delights on offer are heavily influenced by the English background of the owners, but they also include many other cuisines from Europe and North America. It is clear that the chef's ability to pair flavours is incredible, their dishes are limited by seasonal products, but they continue to design delicious meals.  

Treadwell also offers the detailed and cultured advice of a sommelier, who is able to pair a beautiful local wine to compliment your meal. We asked him to suggest an ideal wine for the month of February. He told us that red wine is a perfect companion for these cold months, and suggested a Gamay as it delivers both warmth and pleasure. The two that he pointed out were the Gamay by Malivoire Courtney's in Beamsville, ON and the Gamay from Pearl Morrissette in Jordan, ON.

For this month only, as part of our February Giveaway, you can win a meal for two, as well as a one night stay at the nearby hotel, 124 on Queen. Please click here for information on this incredible giveaway!

Seasonal, local, quality and natural foods are how our diets should be focussed, and in no way does this mean dull dishes. Just take a trip to Treadwell to discover that wonderful things can be done with products of this description. A true taste sensation!

Hi, My wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.
