If you live in Ontario, you know that summer is precious and short – so let’s make sure it’s sweet! One thing you can count on when the weather warms up and the farm stands begin to pop up is the concept of fresh. Markets and grocery stores become abundant with local produce and there’s no better time to take advantage of this vibrant bounty than now. Ontario based brand La Presserie believes that life is meant to be savoured, so every sip and every bite of their plant-based products are filled with delicious healthy goodness and nothing else. Crafted in small batches from the highest quality raw fruits and vegetables, La Presserie products have no added water, no artificial ingredients or added colours, no refined sugars, and they are never pasteurized. To inspire your summer menu, La Presserie has shared with us their chef-inspired, delicious recipes from their award-winning Dressings and their latest innovation – Cold Pressed Cocktail Mixers.
