I've mentioned before in this space how much I'm a fan of simple projects. For me, the idea of elaborate table decorations at dinner parties is beautiful in theory, but I often find that after making the dinner itself and setting out the plates and cutlery, I've about exhausted my hostess energy stores.

It's around this time of season when tomato vines in the garden are literally dripping with fruit, so much so that in my garden I have to wonder what on earth I'll do with them all. One of my favourite late summer recipes is this Israeli couscous and roasted tomato dish, a recipe I love from an issue of Gourmet (September, 2002). Read More

New Stockist | Terrain

Posted By:Celine
Many a time I have wished I lived closer to Terrain, a wonderfully gorgeous store that transforms the local garden center into a celebration of nature inspired by the idea of merging house and garden to create an experience for the senses. Now with two locations in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania and Westport, Connecticut, each location has an onsite nursery, gorgeous homewares and gifts and an event/cafe space with delicious, seasonal menus. It's a magical place where one can get lost in the pleasure of the combined shopping and natural experience, and now I am so very pleased to share that Pure Green Magazine will be available at Terrain as well! What an incredible delight!! Thank you so much to the folks at Terrain for supporting Pure Green! Perhaps one day I'll have the pleasure of visiting myself! Read More

Like many of the recipes we create for the Organic Kitchen, this one is part of Jonathan and my personal roster of favourites. It's a regular Sunday breakfast at our house, heartily filling, easy but so so tasty, and impressive enough to serve to guests. Take advantage of your fresh garden basil while you still have it and whip up this fabulous open-face sandwich, it makes a great light dinner option too! Enjoy! Read More

I chanced upon Shelter Co. and immediately loved what this small event and and pop-up lodging service does. With European style canvas tents as the backbone of their service, Shelter Co. will provide all the necessary ammenties for you and your group to camp not just in luxury but in style. A wonderful way to enjoy the outdoors, depending on your needs they can provide full-service catering and even restrooms. They cater to weddings, small weekend camping expeditions, corporate retreats or whatever your needs may be. Their venue partners offer stunning vistas for an experience you won't easily forget. Pretty sweet! Read More

Three Potato Four is an industrial vintage shop we have admired for a long time, and I'm honored that Pure Green is available there! The shop is a veritable treasure trove of constantly evolving vintage inspiration — boy I wish the PGM offices were closer, we'd be over there constantly sourcing props for Pure Green shoots!

Last weekend Pure Green made an appearance at the Centro Garden Farmer's Market, a great pop-up market in Burlington, Ontario. Based in the back lot of Centro (a fabulous garden and decor store), the market is small but it has all one could ever wish for: eggs, meat, produce, lemonade, preserves and other special treats from week to week. I loved the sense of community there, it was more like a summer social than a market! As a special guest, Pure Green and, more specifically, our Organic Kitchen, brought down some good eats for attendees. Jonathan and I set up an outdoor bistro of sorts and Jonthan cooked up one of his specialties, cilantro pork loin and margarita corn. It was a crowd-pleaser, to our delight. Of course there were lots of copies of the magazine to browse as well—it's always so great to meet new readers and get real-time feedback! Thanks to all who attended the market and gave us such a warm welcome, and to Centro and Barry for organizing! Read More

Summer time is such a fabulous time for a lot of reasons, but a major one is canoe tripping. Jonathan and I have been craving a trip for a while now—it's amazing how easy it has been in recent years to be so distracted by daily life that opportunities, such as planning a canoe trip, pass you by before you even realize. This year we decided with a great amount of conviction that we were going on a canoe trip. We've decided on the first week of August and the planning has begun. Maps were dug out and old lists and menu ideas from years gone by dusted off. Jonathan is a true campfire gourmet, so there's always a ton of planning to do but it pays off ten-fold at the end of a long day paddling. Have you been camping recently? I'd love to hear about your trip! Send stories and photos to submissions@puregreenmag.com. Read More
