On my table today is love, abundance and presence. One of the silver linings of our current situation is the opportunity to sit quietly and be present with our families and share a meal. A good meal - one that took hours together to prepare.
I know that over the past couple of days, I have done just that with my own family. It has helped ease our anxiety, given us an activity to share and then relish ourhard work together. I would like to encourage you to do the same, as deliciousness is possible against the backdrop of a crisis. As I was inspired by the New York Times article this morning: "Deliciousness improves moods and inspires hope and connectivity."
I encourage you to share and savour a bottle of wine at your table with your meal. JoieFarm wines have always been for created “for the table”; they are delicious on their own, but always elevated by good food and good company.
We are thrilled to present a shared Thanksgiving experience with our friends near and far. It is inspired by our JoieFarm team’s favourite family traditions spanning tables from the West Coast to the Maritimes. It is our hope that even though you might not be able to gather with all your loved one’s this year, that we can collectively share a harvest table “en famille” across the country together.
This recipe for Savoury Sage and Squash Galette is inspired by our friends at Joy Road Catering at the Penticton Farmer’s Market. Every Thanksgiving, Chef Dana Ewart, famous for her galettes would bring squash galettes instead of Pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving weekend. Inspired by her "out-of the box thinking" I have included a recipe for a savoury squash version perfect for a Thanksgiving appetizer. Serve with Quotidien Brut or A Noble Blend.
