This weekend marks the unofficial welcome to summer – Victoria Day Weekend. Friends, family and celebration all mark this weekend. It’s the time when many people open their cottages, go camping, spend time together and of course, BBQ.

We are kicking off Victoria Day Weekend by hosting an open house in celebration of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on Friday May 16. We will be trying out a few new food ideas, bringing back a couple of fan favourites and most of all, spending time enjoying the company of friends and talking about healthy eating. Festivities will kick off at 5:00 at 70 Hawley Crescent. Hope to see you there.

We will be introducing Take Away Fridays, starting June 6th. We will be offering a variety of meals that will be ready for pickup or delivery on Friday. All meals will be pre-cooked and delivered to you cold. All you have to do is heat and eat. This will be perfect for cottagers, busy families and anyone who simply wants to take a night off from cooking. Contact us by the Monday to confirm. If interested in participating, please go to the contact us page on the website.

June will also mark the beginning of our Thursday Night Info Sessions, where we will be co-hosting information sessions with other local businesses to introduce ourselves and our services to like minded people interested in finding out about some of the many interesting local businesses and services here in Durham Region. More information to follow, but don’t hesitate to contact us if you are interested in participating or have a business that you’d like us to attempt to setup an info session night with.

I can’t believe that summer is quickly approaching. It seems that the first half of 2014 is flying by. We’ve been busy with events and with growing the business that everything seems like a flash. I’m looking forward to enjoying the summer, continuing to broaden my network and food base – it’s all be such a dynamic beginning to this full time venture, I can’t wait to see more of our hard work and creativity continue to pay off. Thanks to everyone for the fantastic support thus far. Your well wishes, patronage and positive energy has made this all worth while.

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend folks – Live Tastefully
