The Metro Homegrown Tour

Oakville!


Missed the Oakville Homegrown Event?

See the Oakville Homegrown highlights here.

 

Our Juno-nominated artist, dubbed one of the 25 Greatest Canadian Singers Ever by CBC Music—and with 2 Junos and 10 nominations to prove it—Canadian R&B queen Jully Black graced the Homegrown Oakville stage.

 

 


The Heart & Soul of Oakville

Did you know that in the 1800s, Oakville was a terminus on the Underground Railway? The town became synonymous with freedom from slavery for many African-Americans fleeing horrific conditions in the South.

Colonel William Chisholm, who purchased nearly 1,000 acres of land from the Crown, founded Oakville, which was already a thriving port of entry thanks to its geography on Lake Ontario. Its first brick building was erected around 1835 and would be home to six generations of the Chisholm family. Today, that building is known as Erchless Estate.

The Sound of Oakville

As tribute to the diversity and inclusiveness of Oakville, Metro has invited Choir! Choir! Choir!, the Toronto-based open participation singing group led by Daveed Goldman and Nobu Adilman, to perform at the Homegrown event. Their setlist features some of the greatest Canadians hits ever and—surprise!—a VIP Juno award winner will join them on-stage for a truly unforgettable experience.

Fresh Oakville Flavour

Metro prides itself on supporting local growers while delivering the highest quality produce directly to consumers. In Oakville, this is possible thanks to a thriving farming community.

In fact, many of the products you’ll find on the shelves at your Metro grocery store are sourced from local producers, ranging from mushrooms from Campbellville’s Monaghan Mushrooms to fresh produce(including 45+ different varieties like kale, watermelon, squash) from Burlington’s Bayshore Vegetable Shippers.

It doesn’t get much fresher than that!

prosciutto

Ingredients

  • 3
    medium sized parsnips, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch thick slices (like thick cut fries)
  • 1/2 Tbsp.
    (7,5 mL)
    ground cumin

  • 1 c. à thé
    (5 mL)
    chili flakes (to taste)

  •  
    large pork tenderloin, silver skin removed

  • 1 Tbsp.
    (15 mL)
    finely chopped thyme
  • 1 Tbsp.
    (15 mL)
    finely chopped parsley
  • 375 g
    prosciutto
  • 3 tasses
    (710 mL)
    rough chopped rapini
  • 3 Tbsp.
    (45 mL)
    olive oil (for rapini)
  •  
    broccoli microgreens (for garnish)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400F. In a large bowl add parsnips, cumin, chili flakes, a good pinch of salt and a small splash of olive oil, Toss until parsnips are coated with spices. Then spread them evenly over a parchment-lined oven-roasting tray. Roast for 35/45 mins or until edges become a little crispy.

Meanwhile, lay out prosciutto on a chopping board left to right with a slight overlap between pieces. Be sure it’s wide enough to run the length of your pork tenderloin. In a 3-inch strip down the centre lengthways of your prosciutto sprinkle the parsley, thyme and a good pinch of salt. Place your tenderloin closest to yourself and gently roll over the prosciutto – just like rolling a cigar.

Once rolled, in large fry pan over medium high heat add a splash of olive oil. Cut the tenderloin in half (for easier handling) and place each piece in the pan. Sear all sides until just golden. It will only take 45 to 60 seconds per side. Remove from pan and place onto a foil lined roasting tray, slide into your 400F oven for 20/30 mins, or until internal temp of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Meanwhile, add 1/3 inch of water to a medium sized pot on high heat. Place in rapini and cover with lid. Let steam for 3 to 5 mins or until stems are just soft, but not overcooked. Remove from water with tongs and drain off excess water. Add to a blender with butter and 3 Tbsp. of olive oil, blend until pureed, add more oil if desired. Check seasoning.

To plate add a good dollop of rapini puree, parsnips, then pork loin (cut into ½ to 3/4 inch thick slices). Add a drizzle of olive oil and microgreens for garnish.

    Medium white onion, finely diced

  • 2
    Garlic cloves, finely sliced

  • 1 Tbsp.
    (15 mL)
    Smoked paprika

  • 1 Tbsp.
    (15 mL)
    Ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp.
    (15 mL)
    Rough chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 cups
    (470 mL)
    Split peas
  • 6 cups
    (1440 mL)
    Chicken stock, low sodium
  • 70 g
    Goat cheese
  • 70 g
    Greek yogourt
  •  
    Chives (garnish)

Preparation

In a large heavy bottom pot add a splash of olive oil over a medium/high heat. Add bacon and fry until golden and crispy. Remove bacon bits but leave oil in the pot.

In the same pot add onions, garlic, smoked paprika, cumin and thyme. Stir with a wooden spoon until onions are soft but not browned (3/5 mins). Add a little more olive oil if required. Then add split peas and stock. Simmer over medium heat with lid on for 25 to 35 minutes - until split peas are tender. Keep an eye on the liquid level and add more stock if required.

Once split peas are tender remove from heat and blend with a hand blender, or regular blender. I like to blend leaving a little texture, not a full puree. Check seasoning, Add salt and pepper as required.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine goats cheese and Greek yoghurt. Heat in a microwave for 40 to 60 seconds or until mixture is warmed and softened. Remove and stir until combined.

To serve soup add a good tablespoon of bacon bits to the soup bowl, carefully ladle soup over bacon bits, then add a tablespoon dollop of goats cheese/yoghurt mixture, a dusting of smoked paprika and fresh chopped chives.

Easy décor inspiration

Three zero-fuss ideas to make your table picture-perfect.

Vintage vibe 

Vintage vibe

For retro charm, set your table with vintage china, festooned glassware and ornate candelabras. Sound expensive? It doesn’t have to be! Scour garage sales, flea markets and vintage shops to fashion an eclectic collection on the cheap.

Up cycle rustic containers 

Up cycle rustic containers

Think beyond the mason jar and use anything from galvanized metal planters to painted tin cans to display rustic floral arrangements, corral tableware, straws and more or to house pillar candles.

Let there be light 

Let there be light

Nothing sets the scene like lighting. For evening ambience, use plenty of unscented votive candles (save the citronella for after dinner). Otherwise, strings of white lights are always a welcoming touch.
