Well, this is the first time since 2011 that I’ve been out to Prince Edward County and haven’t been here for business mixed with pleasure; it was strictly pleasure. I took a week of vacation time from work and went to go meet a couple of great friends, Mike and Carol, who have been great… Continue reading Getting back to the County
Hello La Natura Fine Food Foodies! Where do I start? La Natura celebrated its 10th Anniversary last autumn. It’s definitely been a heck of a ride.

Wow! What can I say? La Natura Fine Foods had its best year at the Cheese Fest in PEC since we started coming in 2012.

Happy Spring to my La Natura Fine Foodies! I know that we are over a month into Spring, technically, but the weather is only finally starting to become amenable to me and my spring-like activities.

Well, it’s been a really nice Holiday season for La Natura Fine Foods. Not too crazy – just enough to make me feel as if I’m still in the game, making good food, and making people happy. That’s what I love most about La Natura. So, last Saturday, December 12, the absolutely lovely Abby Sawh… Continue reading Closing in on Christmas – Good Food – Good Times – Good People
All right, all right … don’t laugh. But, I love Christmas Time. I love the feeling (because we’re still coming off Autumn – which is my absolute, favourite time of the year), the aromas, the getting together with people who you haven’t gotten together with in a while – and for La Natura, it means… Continue reading It’s The Most Wonderful Time … of the year!
