Happy Canada Day!

By this sunny morning here in Montreal, I wish all my fellow Canadians a great Canada Day! I was in San Francisco last week which meant I did not have the time to create new mood boards to help you prepare your party. I noticed that many have look at my previous menu suggestions.

A quick inspiration

You can go the nautical theme this year. Serve the maple salmon on the BBQ that I did last month paired with a nice white wine. You only need fresh salmon, maple syrup, a clove of garlic, garlic salt and ground pepper. The maple BBQ salmon recipe so simple to prepare that you can decide to host a party within the hour.

For your party decor inspiration, I selected vintage items from the Toronto-based retailer Flik & Company: boat strings and vintage buoys. If you do not have time to make a dessert, go with fruits. Everybody enjoy the refreshing taste of in-season watermelon. Plus, I get the red and white color.

+ Watermelon: Crate & Barrel
