ED­I­TOR’S NOTES

IN EV­ERY IS­SUE

Food & Drink - - TABLE OF CONTENTS -

lemon­ade, ice cream and grilling… You’ll find recipes star­ring all your sum­mer­time favourites in this is­sue. From savoury takes on wa­ter­melon (page 96) and re­fresh­ing lemon­ade cock­tails (page 76) to stun­ning ice­box desserts (page 131) and show-stop­ping recipes for the BBQ (page 113), we’ve given each one a fresh twist for your sea­sonal en­ter­tain­ing. Plus we share 18 new recipes for condi­ments, side dishes, sal­ads and more that are sure to be­come new summer es­sen­tials in “Side Shows” on page 68.

As summer goes on, there may come a time where the thought of an­other burger loses its ap­peal. That’s when “By the Sea” on page 82 and “Veg­ging Out” on page 33 will come in handy. Whether you’re crav­ing a seafood feast or a hearty sand­wich burst­ing with sea­sonal pro­duce, ei­ther story is sure to sat­isfy. The same is true for drinks, if you grow tired of your favourite brew, con­sider On­tario cider (page 88) for a change. On the wine and spirit side, both “Summer Sam­pling” (page 123) and “Gins of Dis­tinc­tion” (page 41) o er sug­ges­tions for switch-ups and al­ter­na­tives we think you’ll love.

Of course, at this time of year, sim­ple plea­sures can be the most re­ward­ing—like a per­fectly chilled bev­er­age, or per­fect­ing your house salad dress­ing. Let Eric Vel­lend and Lucy Waver­man be your guides on th­ese quests, start­ing on page 25 for ice and on page 164 for dress­ings. And for dessert? On page 59 we’ve paired store-bought and no bake good­ies with prod­ucts from the LCBO’s readyto-drink col­lec­tion for an e or­t­less end to a din­ner party.

We know summer may feel short this year since it got o to a late start, but the change of sea­sons will bring some­thing to look for­ward to. Our Au­tumn is­sue is our 25th an­niver­sary and we are work­ing on a special col­lec­tor’s edi­tion to com­mem­o­rate the oc­ca­sion. It’ll be the ul­ti­mate guide to din­ner par­ties, no mat­ter the oc­ca­sion or your ex­per­tise—full of great menus, drinks and tips. Fol­low @lcbo and #FoodAndDri­nk25 on so­cial me­dia to find out more and be a part of the cel­e­bra­tion.

Have a great summer!
