D is for Dinner: homemade treats from local Christmas markets

black-garlic-dec-11-2013.jpgFor a lot of people the Christmas season is about tradition. But that's not true of all the vendors at the upcoming local holiday markets. Our D is for Dinner guests this week are selling bold experiments in new flavours, for holiday menus and stocking stuffers.


Andrew Craig has been experimenting with black garlic. In fact he's raising money on the website Kickstarter, to make it more available to Canadians. He's also appearing at the Flavours of Ottawa market in Westboro this weekend (market info here). Also appearing is Tyler Steeves. Tyler will be selling some of the first bottles of his Treewell Sparkling Maple Sap drink. Both joined us in studio for a preview taste.


You can find Andrew's recipe for baked bananas with black garlic here.
