SAVOUR- the Flavour of Stratford

by Richard Bain, foreword by Colm Feore

Stratford is a culinary destination year-round. Restaurants, cheese shops, artisanal bakeries, chocolate shops, and outdoor markets focus on providing their clients with locally sourced produce and meat. Richard’s book celebrates this abundance and has dedicated it to all those who pride themselves to prepare mouth-watering plates that measure up to fine cooking standards. His book presents not only his wonderfully skilled photography, but also recipes from a number of establishments and individuals “specialities de maison”.  Check out Mornington Rose on page 112 and 113!!!

Fused Glass Stars

Unique colourful glass Stars will look beautiful placed on your Christmas tree, or hung in your window to reflect the light on a sunny day. Perhaps one of these stars will remind you of Stratford’s night sky, or the Star Performers you may have seen in one of the Stratford Festival’s productions. What a great memory of your trip to Stratford !

All glass stars are hand made by Victoria in her Studio on-site at Mornington Rose.  Measuring about three inches in diameter, they are available in a range of colours, plus clear glass, and will reflect and refract their rich colours even on a gloomy day.  Imagine how cheerful they will look hanging in your home any time of the year!

$9 plus HST each  or $25 plus HST for a package of three different colours.

STRATFORD – Dramatically Different

by Richard Bain, foreword by Colm Feore

A beautiful book of beautiful photographs of our beautiful City, by Richard Bain. Once you spend a few quiet moments with Richard’s photographs, and allow yourself to linger, you will, I hope, begin to experience just what it is like to live here. “Where Art and Industry combine” was the city’s  motto 60 ears ago, and still is today, the city an internationally renown centre for  Live Theatre. Experience the treasure of Stratford through Richard’s viewfinder, and see why many thousands of people visit each year and why we and so many others choose to call this community home.
