The Local Dish – help create Toronto’s largest collection of local food recipes

A1504069LocalDishJulyFacebookcvrA new City of Toronto initiative called The Local Dish invites residents to share their favourite local food recipes and help to build Toronto’s largest collection of recipes online. The collection, called The Local Dish, is hosted on Pinterest, a social media platform that makes it easy to share recipes and photos.

The goal is to encourage residents to choose local food more often, and to educate people about the abundance of fresh and delicious food that is grown in Ontario. The Local Dish also highlights the additional benefits of choosing local food, including support for local jobs and local farmers, and helping to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with food travel.

Each month, The Local Dish will select an “all-star” veggie or fruit – one that is abundantly available in Ontario at that time – and invite residents to share their favourite recipes that feature the ingredient in a prominent way. Residents who submit recipes will be eligible for monthly prizes.

The all-star for the month of July is zucchini. The Local Dish is also engaging some of Toronto’s top restaurants and their chefs who are passionate champions of local food.
