Dear Folk Fest family and friends
In the absence of this year’s Folk Festival, the Festival Kitchen has lovingly compiled menu ideas based on past recipes. These recipes are among my personal favourites and those that have been requested by volunteers and festival guests. One quality that they have in common is the simplicity of the steps. This way, you can recreate some of the Festival Kitchen favourites while at home.
Throughout the weekend, our Festival Kitchen volunteers prepare these dishes in large quantity; some of these recipes have been served to 2500-3000 folks! As always, most of the ingredients are not only affordable, and in season but also locally sourced so they can feed the hearts of our festival. With this in mind, we have adjusted these recipes for your family and friends gathering.
Please feel free to contact us by email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or would like to request a recipe not included in this small collection.
Happy cooking and bon appétit!
Stephane Levesque, Festival Kitchen Manager
