Hooray! That's us (finally) celebrating the warm weather and the arrival of all those great Spring/Summer fruits and veggies! We are lucky to have an abundance of fresh produce throughout the year in Canada but over the next few months is when Mother Nature really shows off her talents.


To make the most of Spring/Summer produce, we're hosting a Twitter Party with Half Your Plate and Chef Michael Smith is going to share how to step up your Summer veggie game to keep it going 365/24/7!

We'll be featuring tons of info and recipes on cucumbers, potatoes, celery and tomatoes. We'll also be sharing five great new videos from Chef Smith himself and showing how easy and tasty it is to fill half your plate!
