Savour the Flavour   


Savour the Flavour                                                           

Come to the Crapaud Exhibition to enjoy the foods and celebrate the flavours of our local communities in P.E.I.  Meet the producers who grow, harvest, or process P.E.I. food.

The 2017 Savour the Flavour programme has been finalized with seven new recipes. We try to create new eating experiences that are easy to prepare, affordable and nutritious. We try to educate our audience about the producers in our area and our local foods. This year we will be presenting potatoes in a new way, along with beef, strawberries, blueberries and apples. You can watch a chef prepare these foods, sample the finished product and receive the recipes.

Our demonstrations this year are being prepared by chef Peter G. Hicks. Peter was born and raised in Baie Verte N.B. but now resides on his family's homestead (Gordon) on the Appin Road.

Peter graduated in the first class (1983) from the Culinary Institute at Holland College. Since then he has been involved in numerous competitions and won a gold medal in 1987 at Taste of Canada.

Peter presently is a chef at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown and is a consulting Chef for Rodd Hotels. In addition to this busy schedule Peter has his own catering company “Classic Cuisine”.

We welcome Peter to the Crapaud Exhibition and are sure that you will enjoy all the demonstrations and advice that he will supply.

We will be getting local supplies from Thompson Potatoes and ADL.

Everyone is welcome to sit in the comfort of our open kitchen area and get some new ideas on making such things as Enchiladas and Potato Pizza. Demonstrations will be between 11:00 a.m and 3:30 p.m. Plan to pay us a visit.
