Discover delicious Pontiac: Demeter Catering at Bristol Farmers Market



Kate Aley

Luskville caterer Demeter Catering has teamed up with Beechgrove lamb producer JAE Farm to offer delicious, fresh, ready-to-eat food at the Bristol Farmers’ Market. JAE Farm has produced some lovely hand-made lamb sausages that are free from fillers or preservatives. Just spices and fresh herbs compliment the pasture-raised lamb. They can be purchased grilled for immediate eating on a pita with slaw and yogurt or frozen for cooking at home.

Demeter is also using JAE lamb to create tempting dishes inspired by lamb-loving cultures around the world. Today (June 23) we are going to India with a leg of lamb roasted in a spiced yogurt sauce served alongside rice, dahl and vegetables. Demeter Catering also has a range of frozen, homemade ready-to-cook dishes such as lasagne, chili and meatballs in tomato sauce, all using local, pasture-raised meat.


So gooood, so close to home!!!

Out of )this world good food available at our local (Bristol) farmer's market, every Friday from 1 to 6 pm.!!!! The veggies are fresh from gardens just a few kilometers away (Mayhew family farm); there is pasture raised beef, pork, lamb (Netherlea farm, Simms Farm, JAE farm). Demeter Catering (aka Sheila) cooks this up and gives you an idea of the mouth watering dishes you can make with ingredients as fresh and unadulterated as these.! So good, so close to home!

Have the amalgamation discussions gasped their last, dying breath?


Since February of this year, every issue of the (Pontiac) Journal has published something on the topic of the MRC Pontiac’s study on the possibility of amalgamating some of its municipalities. Whether in the countless articles, letters to the editors, advertisements, and editorials, no other single topic in the Journal’s history has occupied as much newsprint space.

Pontiac: funeste fusion


Dans le Pontiac, les francophones sont depuis plus d'un siècle menacés d'assimilation. Ils ne restent majoritaires que dans le secteur formé par les municipalités contiguës de Fort-Coulonge, Mansfield-et-Pontefract et Île-du-Grand-Calumet. Or, si la fusion envisagée des 18 municipalités de la MRC Pontiac se réalise, ce qui reste de francophonie dans l'ouest de l'Outaouais risque d'être mis en minorité pour de bon. C'est un scénario qu'il faut à tout prix écarter!
