Friday night supper

On the last Friday of June, Yvonne Machado worked with the park cooks to make a Portuguese meal. She showed them how to make leg of lamb braised in beer and port wine, Portuguese corn bread, and orange cake for dessert. Most of the recipes were not in a book but had been taught to Yvonne by her mother. There wasn’t a single scrap of that meal left over.

The park cooks wanted to cook a Portuguese meal because a group planned to show a Portuguese-language film in honour of the first-ever Portuguese-language film festival in Toronto. But there was such a high wind that evening, the screen couldn’t be put up and the outdoor film was cancelled. The food was delicious anyway! Hopefully some other excellent local cooks will share their knowledge with the park cooks too, and Yvonne says she’ll come back again when she has time.
