It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to summer. But there is a lot of special food coming in September to keep our bellies happy! A few key dates to keep in mind this month:
Labour Day Weekend – August 30th to September 2nd
The final weekend of summer and a great reason to break out the bbq with family and friends. It is our final weekend for Chili Cheese brats and Southern BBQ Pulled Pork sausages. Lots of other items great for grilling as well!
First week of September – Back to school September 3rd
For the first week of school we like to make a few special treats perfect for packed lunches and recess snacks. Ham mortadella, roast turkey and maple glazed ham are great for sandwiches. Turkey pepperoni is a quick source of protein at break time!
Oyama Garlic Fest – Thursday, Sept 12th – Sunday, Sept 15th
Garlic is the ultimate turn on – for food! For our garlic fest, we put garlic in almost everything – smokies, sausages, bratwurst, and chorizos! It is also one of the few times in the year we make our Red Garlic Salami. Bring your breath mints!
Free-range pork – Giesbrecht Farms – Thursday, Sept 19th – Sunday, Sept 22nd
Our “micro-farm” partner for September is Giesbrecht Farms located in the Fraser Valley. Since 1993 Brian Giesbrecht has been raising free-range heritage pigs such as Berkshire and Tamworth on this small farm. Look for lots of sausages made with Giesbrecht pork this week at Oyama.
Oktoberfest –Friday, Sept 27th – Sunday, Sept 29th
Oktoberfest is a 200 year old party dedicated to sausages, pretzels and beer! For the occasion, we will be making at least half a dozen types of bratwursts, and have plenty of mustards, pretzels and sauerkraut on hand. Enjoy responsibly in your finest lederhosen!
Also, this is first weekend of fall for Boudin Noir and Morcilla! Pre-order to reserve (604-327-7407 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
