“But for life the universe were nothing and all life requires is nourishment,” wrote American culinary maven Fannie Merritt Farmer in 1896.
Hidden from the agricultural mainstream in Ontario an epicurean counterculture is rethinking the definition of nourishment, and organic herbs, teas, coffees, produce, fruits, maple syrup, fish and meat are ascending in importance as food staples.
While Ontario lags behind British Columbia, Saskatchewan and Quebec in the number of certified organic farms and food sales in the major supermarkets, organic foods predominate in Ontario farmers markets, Mennonite roadside stalls, natural food and health food stores, and 100-mile markets.
