A Walk On Erie

Each year, on a Monday in June, Family Respite Services holds their fundraiser titled "A Walk on Erie". Participants get the chance to walk down Erie Street (which is an amazing Italian neighbourhood in Windsor, ON) and enjoy delicious dishes from three different restos. They are also treated to appetizers and dessert at a local church hall, before and after diving in at the restaurants.

I have participated in this event for the past three years and have never been disappointed. This year we tasted:

* lemony green beans, pork, and a tower of risotto in the colours of the Italian flag

*whitefish, short ribs, and agnolotti with rose, peas and prosciutto

from Nico

* spring rolls, calamari, and salad with cranberries and pistachios

from Mezzo

An event with great food that assists a fabulous organization, what's not to like?
