I’m a huge fan of the Seasoned Spoon. And if you are a lover of local foods in the Peterborough area, you should be to.
If you haven’t heard of the Spoon, they’re an independent café at Trent University offering delicious lunches and snacks for students, staff and faculty. They’re also pioneers in helping make local, seasonal, and ethically sourced food an integral part of university life.
Awhile back, I wrote a piece about them for Metroland Media newspapers and blogs across Ontario. Click here to read the piece.
Their upcoming event, “So I’m in University…. What do I Eat?!?” is a great example of how they aim to feed both the body and the mind.
From their Facebook page:
“Wednesday, Sept. 26th 4pm-5pm- So I’m in University- What do I Eat?!? Join us at the Seasoned Spoon for a workshop and conversation on surviving first year on a budget or in residence, as we discuss how to eat healthily and cheaply even if you’re tied to a meal plan. We’ll take you on a mental walk-about on where to buy and eat good food in Peterborough and together will create a must-have list of res room staples and “cooking” tips. This workshop is geared toward first year students but everyone is welcome to come and share. Cost is by donation and the Seasoned Spoon is located in Champlain College just past the Great Hall.”
