Unfortunately we can’t grow Seville oranges or Myers Lemons in our garden,
but we can indulge in their flavours via marmalade. I suspect making marmalade was
what gardeners did in January to indulge their tastebuds in something
fresh! Fort York’s annual homage to citrus fruits and marmalade is being
held February 19th, 10.00 am – 3.30 pm at the Fort.
Morning workshops conclude with a marmalade-centric contest in the afternoon.!
$45 and pre-registration is advised.
Sweet Refreshments. Citrusy Lunch and Lemon Cream tastes included!
Another event at Fort York happens this Saturday (January 29th)!
Fort York Food Fight! – Chef Competition
City of Toronto
Date: January 29, 2011
Time: 01:00 PM to 06:00 PM

The afternoon starts with an intimate food tour of Fort York, which will give guests an understanding of diet during the early days of Toronto, followed by one of two workshops: Eat Green through the Seasons, exploring the ecological benefits of eating seasonally and Growing Food Indoors, highlighting alternative gardening. The afternoon finale showcases a chef competition like no other. Two of Toronto’s top chefs, Ted Corrado and Scott Vivian, will create recipes incorporating a secret 1812-era ingredient that would have been available in the Town of York. The winning chef will be crowned Fort York Food Fight Champion and be the recipient of a $2500 grand prize.
