From the May Long Weekend until the end of Labour Day Weekend, enjoy New Orleans Muffuletta lunches on weekends at our Hillier, Ontario Tasting Room. Local cheeses and cured meats combined with tangy olive spread creates a sandwich big on flavour and personality. Add a touch of hot sauce if you like things spicy. Choose dairy-free or meat-free products for a vegetarian or vegan treat. Served alongside a handful of exotic organic veggie chips and paired with a glass of our Chardonnay 'Sur Lie' or the Harwood wine of your own choosing. (Must be age 19 or over for wine by the glass service.)

Summer isn't summer without BBQ, and BBQ isn't BBQ without a finger-licking, super tasty BBQ sauce. 'Ye Olde BBQ Sauce' was developed to pay homage to a particularly memorable meal enjoyed in Montreal back in 1956. It's been a family favourite ever since.
Baste 'Ye Olde BBQ Sauce' on chicken or a rack of ribs while they cook and allow the sauce to caramelize slightly or serve alongside a steak grilled to perfection.
1 medium onion diced
1 large garlic bud, diced
3 tsp. paprika
1 ¼ cups stock, chicken or vegetable
½ cup ketchup
½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Few shakes of Tabasco sauce, or to taste
- Brown onion and garlic in a dash of olive oil.
- Add paprika to brown (this enhances the paprika taste considerably)
- Add all other ingredients and simmer.
- If used with BBQ chicken or other meat or vegetables, soak the meat/veg in the sauce for at least half an hour before barbecuing to enhance the taste.
- When serving, add a small dish on each plate, with sauce, for dipping.
If you were to look up 'Comfort food' in the dictionary, Gammy's Vegetarian Pasta Sauce would come up as a result. Fresh basil, sundried tomatoes & garlic give this sauce its zing, while Italian flavoured tofu keeps it vegetarian friendly.
Yield: 2 servings
- Lightly brown onion and garlic in olive oil and then brown the paprika (this gives an enhanced toasted aroma to the mix).
Add the tomato, sun-dried tomatoes, ground tofu, other spices and vegetable stock.
Let simmer for about 10 minutes.
Thicken with tomato paste.
Wash and chop basil.
Add basil to the sauce about 5 minutes before serving.
- Serve on a bed of cooked fusilli, rotini or spaghetti noodles.
A featured Harwood recipe during 'Maple in the County', our Maple Crêpes are light, fluffy and versatile. Enjoy as a tasty snack or as a sweet dessert. The topping possibilities are endless but we pair them with our Just Desserts for a decadent indulgence.

Pour small amounts of batter into a frying pan to make mini crêpes and cook like pancakes.
