It's Harrow Fair Time!

This Thursday marks the opening day of the Harrow Fair 2010. The gates open at 1pm and there is plenty to see and do throughout the weekend. However, if you are interested in trying your hand at entering something in one of the many competitions that are offered, you need to have your entries in to the Agricultural building on the fairgrounds Wednesday, September 1st, 10am-9pm.

For the first time ever, my sister Lori, and I will be calling the fair "home" throughout the weekend. The Harrow Fair Cookbook is making it's big debut on home turf and we are so excited! Not only will we have lots of books for sale, we will also be sharing samples of our recipe for Cheddar Loonies, providing gift wrapping in a variety of motifs, and having a great time, to boot!

And just in case you wanted to know but were too shy to ask.... we are selling The Harrow Fair Cookbook for an even $25 (retail price is $29.95), and we are able to accept all credit and debit cards (so you won't run out of cash for the rides and cotton candy!). Looking forward to seeing you there!


  1. Woo Hoo! Even I am excited and I am across the country! This weekend, in honour of you and the fair, however, I will be making peach cream pies and one stop tomato sauce for freezing and canning respectively. I made four batches of the favorite pie crust yesterday! I have been devouring the cookbook this week and just loving it. Truly. It is excellent. Great job! Have fun at the fair!

  2. We had such a great time at the fair. I hope to make it an annual family outing - and even enter a few things next year! I am making your nectarine cobbler and potatoes for Labour Day dinner. Thanks for being such an inspiration to me!! Love to both you and Lori.

  3. Hello from Beautiful British Columbia. I am about to make your Cheddar Loonies from the recipe which appeared in Hello Canada Mag.recently. It says to 'cream the butter' but there is no indication as to how much butter....it has been omitted from the list of ingredients. Would you please let me know so I can proceed with making these amazing treats.
    Thanks so much. Brenda Gross - Good luck with The Harrow Fair. I would come to the fair, if I still lived in Ontario. From: gross5384@yahoo.ca

  4. Moira & Lori,
    It was so great to see the both of you at the fair! What an honour it must be to have a book published that includes a history of recipes from one of the oldest fairs in Canada.
    Well done!

    Can't wait for your next book!

  5. I, too, would like to know the amount of butter used in the recipe for Cheddar Loonies. Please advise.
