Exhibition Place on March 20th - 24th.
    Chefs from five of Ontario's Finest Inns will each present their
succulent variations on Ontario produced pork, veal, lamb and turkey. Along
with a cooking demonstration, the chefs will speak about various cuts, flavour
profiles and versatility associated with the four Homegrown Ontario meats.

              dishes will inspire show-goers to use the ample bounty produced
