Campagnolo at RIPE
For the last three years, Campagnolo has been our casual, yet elegant Italian neighbour-vendor at the Wednesday Main Street Market. They buy at the market, they sell at the market (hand made pasta, in case you didn't know), and prepare a menu exclusive to the Wednesday market throughout the summer months. For this reason alone we would be thrilled to include them in this year's RIPE celebration, but they've also been known to cook up some seriously delicious rustic faire.
For RIPE, Chef Adam plans to present a savory eggplant bruschetta incorporating organic garlic from Klippers Organics, eggplant from Hill Top Farm in Oliver, BC, along with ricotta cheese, chilies, and olive tapenade, all served up on Purebread's hearty baguette. Doesn't that sound delicious? Our mouths our watering already...
