For the past three years I have been involved in “Best Bites: Taste of the Region” fundraiser here in Cambridge, Ontario. As the beverage contact on the organizing committee for the event I contact and invite the wineries, breweries & distilleries to the event. As you can imagine, I have the best job! This recipe is the 2nd in a series of posts I am featuring as a “Thank You” to the beverage participants who have been such an important part of helping make Best Bites such a resounding success each year.
