Cooking with your garden with Tony Lacroix from Love Love Food

Tony Lacroix is a foodie and main (and only, lol) writer for, his passion of food started at a very young age where he would cook complete meals starting at the age of 12. His partner and his mom are some of his biggest supporters and inspirations when it comes to preparing and talking about food.

The show is taking place at the Cornwall Civic Complex: March 30th from 4pm to 9pm, 31st from 10am to 6pm and on April 1st from  10am to 4pm. LoveLoveFood will have a both showcasing their gourmet preserves and the LoveLoveFood Culinary Wood Collection (cutting boards, trivets, cheese trays and more).

The 2012 Show promises to once again offer a wonderful experience for its many thousands of visitors. They will enjoy seeing some of the traditional exhibitors and will also get to experience some new ones with even more innovative products and services.

The Cooking with your Garden series was designed to show you how easy and fun it is to cook with vegetables and herbs from your garden. We’ve kept in mind what grows in Cornwall and SD&G, so you shouldn’t have to search very much to find these ingredients.

All presentations will be held at the LoveLoveFood booth (in the arena part).
