Event Website

The Essex County Federation of Agriculture in partnership with Tourism Windsor Essex Pelee Island and Libro Credit Union is pleased to present the next event in our Makers Class in our W.E. Heart Local series this summer. Enjoy hands on experiences with local chefs, producers, growers and butchers to learn why it’s so much better to support local!

Join Queen of the Harrow Fair pie auction and farmer Leslie Balsillie with Viewpointe Estate Winery Chef Jodie Brown for a unique cooking class that’s just peachy! Leslie and Jodie will walk you through a hands on session preparing three recipes featuring local Fruit Wagon Essex County peaches.

Your ticket includes Viewpointe Estate wines and peach recipe pairings. Each participant will prepare the following recipes;

  • Peach and Green Bean Salad
  • Peach Salsa (take home a jar!)
  • Harrow Fair Peach Pie (take home your pie!)

Your evening will begin with Viewpointe’s Sparkling wine paired with local peach salsa on crostini. Chef Jodie Brown will guide you through this recipe created with all local ingredients. Next enjoy a fresh green bean and peach salad paired with Viewpointe’s Pinot Grigio, a crisp wine for a refreshing dish. Learn from Jodie why peaches and green beans work so well together! Finally indulge in a pairing of award winning Fruit Wagon peach pie paired with the tropical Viewpointe Auxerrois. Learn the tricks of the trade from the Harrow Fair pie auction veteran Leslie Balsillie including a no fail pie crust and tender filling.

Better get your tickets early! This class will sell out!
