Strawberry Lemon Cake with a maple leaf built out of strawberries
Run this up the flagpole
A Canada Day masterpiece. This Strawberry Lemonade Cake features a moist sponge with the sweet tart flavour of real lemonade. Whipped cream and our decadent Gold Sour Cream make for a rich and creamy topping. To finish, this cake is crowned with locally grown strawberries in the shape of our flag, making it as striking as it is delicious.

Beef up your Father's Day
This Father's Day, kick up your steak and potatoes. Our Mojito Flank Steak was inspired by the popular Cuban cocktail. Mint leaves, Worcestershire sauce, cumin, lime zest, and jalapeño peppers make for a flavourful marinade before grilling. Paired with a spicy sweet potato mash, it's a delicious twist on a classic dad favourite.
