EDITOR’S LETTER

I

just dropped my oldest son off at kindergarten for the last time and summer break is officially here. This is my first summer as a full-time working mom and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a bit nervous. For parents, summer comes with higher expectations, pressures, and a delicate balance. It also comes with late-night snuggles around bonfires, cannonballs into the pool, and sticky, ice cream-covered faces. However you’re spending your summer, I wish you beautiful memories and peaceful moments. A much-loved summer tradition of mine is grabbing fresh and crispy fish and chips and heading down to the lake for a picnic. We’ve rounded up some of our favourite places to grab your own in our Round-Up feature. Are you a thrill-seeker? Our Just for Fun feature will take you to new heights – discover zip lines, rock climbing, and other adventures close to home. There’s nothing like fresh fruit in the summertime – but have you tried it grilled? Bring out new flavours this summer with help from our Food Feature. Heading to the cottage? Bring some essentials from home. We’ve put together hostess gifts, drink wear, travel bags, and other cottage-inspired décor for your summer trips. LaSalle Park is a beautiful destination in the summer. You can troll the boardwalk, visit with the swans, and play at the park or pool. But, did you know the name “LaSalle” is tied to a historic figure from the 17th Century? Read all about him in our History feature. Hot off the press! The Bronte Summer Guide is here! Discover patios, new businesses, upcoming events, and so much more. Check out our special feature. Schools out for the summer!

eading north for the weekend? We love a good summer afternoon by the lake — especially when there’s a great book and a cold drink involved. If you’re looking for a hostess gift to offer your favourite FWC (Friend With a Cottage) or simply want to add style and convenience to your own summer home, we have a few ideas. Here are some local recommendations to help you make the most of your cottage weekend.

TURKISH BATH TOWELS We love Turkish bath towels because they’re soft and beautiful enough to use as a wrap or throw blanket, but absorbent enough to quickly dry you off after a dip in the lake. Keep a few on hand for guests or in the boat for those spontaneous swims. Pure Boutique in downtown Burlington carries some Turkish bath towels as well as home decor, skincare, gorgeous loungewear, and more.

You can also find Turkish bath towels at Centro Market in downtown Burlington, plus great barware and hostess gifts.

TOTE-ALLY CONVENIENT BAGS Whether you’re heading out to another cottage, going into town for groceries or simply trying to haul all of your stuff to the dock in one trip, a great tote bag is key. We love a straw option because they’re light, functional, and easy to clean (just shake off that sand and go). Hue La La in Burlington has a San Fran market basket tote that’s perfect for the job. While you’re there, check out their amazing collection of drinkware and decor. For a more playful option, try a canvas tote from Lakeside Livin’. With classic leather details and cute branding like “Weekend Vibes”, “Getaway” and “Beach Please”, they make the perfect travel bag.

BYE BYE, BUGS Here in Ontario, there’s a window of about four minutes between blackfly season and mosquito season — so, it’s best to be prepared. Enjoy an evening outdoors without the buzz and bug bites when you use these stunning candles from Housewarmings in Oakville. Their citronella candles are a gorgeous option that keeps the bugs at bay. The boutique also has a wide range of products that would make beautiful hostess gifts, plus highquality quilts that make any cottage bed feel like a five-star hotel.

DOCKSIDE BEATS If your perfect summer afternoon involves lying in the sun with a great playlist drifting over the water, you need an excellent portable speaker. There are plenty of great Bluetooth-enabled options but we love the Sonos Roam from Core 1 in downtown Oakville. Charge it up and enjoy hours of tunes on the dock, in the boat, by the campfire or wherever else you find yourself. And if you don’t want to disturb nature (or the neighbours)? Grab some AirPods, too.

HOST WITH THE MOST If you’re having guests, give them the full cottage experience: days in the sun and evenings by candlelight. These Himalayan candles from Lakeside Livin’ in Bronte are rustic and elegant at the same time, creating the perfect ambiance for any cabin. Use them on the dinner table or in the living room after dark. Lakeside Livin’ also offers amazing nautical themed décor that elevates any space, plus great kitchenware, cozy textiles and other Muskoka musts.

BOT TOMS UP! There is nothing like a cocktail on the dock (especially when you’ve hustled up Highway 400 during rush hour). Deck out your Tiki bar with some drink accessories from Flourish & Bask. They have a large assortment of cocktail tools and accessories including bar tool sets, glassware, and syrups. Then, head on over to Ten and Co. for some Dillon’s bitters. Don’t forget your Dillon’s craft cocktail book – before you know it, you’ll be using your tools and your ingredients to mix drinks like a pro! Now, where’s that cold drink we were talking about? LL

LA SALLE PARK W H AT ' S I N A N A M E ? by JULIAN KINGSTON

T 22

he name ‘La Salle’ can be found attached to everything from schools to entire cities. It probably conjures up an image of a “great explorer” but let’s dig a little deeper and uncover some of the risks in naming things after historical figures.

Look Local Volume 10 | Issue 5


René-Robert Cavelier Sieur De La Salle was born in 1643 into a well-to-do merchant family in Rouen, France. Described by his Jesuit teachers as both talented and unquiet, he studied with them for several years before leaving the order, creating a rift between him and that powerful sect and an early showing of his talent for making enemies. Having few resources but many connections to New France, he made his way to the island of Montreal in 1667 where he obtained a seigneury from the Suplician Order of the Catholic Church. After a couple of years, he sold most of it back to the order, who had given it to him for nothing, netting a sum to fund his ambition of exploring the New World. He set out to find the Ohio River and what he thought would be a lucrative trading route to China, based on the prevalent hazy grasp of world geography.

La Salle’s quest for the Ohio aligned with the missionary program of Suplician Dollier de Casson with whom he joined forces. That order, having assessed La Salle’s changeability, supplied one of their own, Bréhant de Galinée, as cartographer – although Galinée rated himself barely adequate for the task. Joining La Salle’s party was a Dutch interpreter, with little grasp of French, and so of little utility. Lacking a guide and with minimal experience in the woods, and as La Salle was an indifferent navigator, it is amazing that they got anywhere at all. They left Montreal in early July and had many challenges, yet by some wonder managed to reach Lake Ontario by August 10. One can reasonably assume that they had local Indigenous aid and guidance along the way. After some delays related to the Seneca having understandable misgivings about allowing the French access to the territories of their rivals, the party reached Burlington Bay in September 1669. Here La Salle came down with a fever which Galinée attributed to him being startled by three rattlesnakes he saw while climbing a rock. Not long after, La Salle informed the Suplicians that he was too ill to continue and would return to Montreal, except he didn’t return until at least ten months later.

It’s during this gap that La Salle’s biggest supporters claim he discovered the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. Leaving aside the fact that these rivers were very well known to Indigenous Peoples and therefore didn’t need discovery, there’s no real evidence to support that he found either river between the fall of 1669 and the summer 1671 as has been claimed. This is just the beginning of the stories of La Salle’s exploits, which ended in a series of tragedies and his eventual murder at the hands of his own men. Whatever his debatable accomplishments and skills as an explorer, it is indisputable that he had great perseverance and determination. It’s also clear that he was impulsive, erratic and often careless with the lives of his followers. So why are so many places named after him? Essentially, his travels became the subject matter for popular histories, which were really adventure novels. The first was released in 1683 by Father Louis Hennepin, a missionary who had accompanied La Salle in person. Even more influential were the late 19th century writings of Francis Parkman. The elevation of La Salle to legendary status, and the 254th anniversary of the man himself possibly being in the neighbourhood, was likely the impetus for local politicians deciding to change the name of Wabasso to La Salle Park in 1923. Leased by the City of Burlington today, visitors can enjoy the picturesque 1917 dancing pavilion, stately swans, hiking trails, and a kiddie splash pad. It’s definitely worth a visit even if there’s a lesser state of adventure than there was in 1669, as these days there’s no sign of rattlesnakes. LL

MOVING

Bronte FORWARD

O

n the Treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit River, Bronte Village was established in 1834 and its harbour area is one of Ontario’s oldest and most scenic lakeside communities. Although still charming, Bronte has experienced growth since its humble beginnings as a fishing village. Now home to over 13,500 residents, 175 businesses, and a stunning recreational harbour – Bronte is a vibrant community where everyone is welcomed and everything you need can be found. In January 2021, the Bronte Forward! outreach and engagement campaign was launched to capture the future vision for Bronte and how it can be it’s very best. This includes keeping Bronte walkable and connected, celebrating its local vibrancy, embracing inclusivity, and harnessing development for a better future – including two exciting new developments starting this year.

With approximately 800 to 1,000 new residents moving into the community, the districts look forward to celebrating the arrival of new businesses. Bronte will also become home to the Residences at Bronte Lakeside – an elegant 6-story boutique condominium at Lakeshore and Bronte Roads. Diane Bertolin, Marketing Agent for Bronte Lakeside, says the building will hold 203 units along with groundlevel commercial space – bringing new residents and businesses to the area. While change can always be a little nerve-wracking – the evolution of Bronte will bring new friendships, new experiences, and new faces to our community. And, that’s certainly something to celebrate.

Know BEFORE

You G o THERE’S A SPOT FOR YOU IN BRONTE

T

ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS Bronte is home to two electric vehicle charging stations. Located on Bronte Road at Marine Drive and on Ontario Street at Nelson Street, two vehicles can charge at the same time at each station.

CURBSIDE QUICK STOPS Curbside quick stops allow you to pull in and do a 20-minute pick-up or take-out from your favourite local restaurant or business. Please don’t park here if you plan to stay longer.

RESTRICTED SUMMER PARKING

ake a minute before you leave home to know where to park your car (or bike!) once you arrive for your visit. Bronte has hundreds of parking spots waiting for you.

To ensure local residents have parking during the summer, look for signs restricting parking on side streets near the waterfront. Towing and fines in effect. There’s plenty of free parking for visitors at Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park.

ON-STREET PAID PARKING

PRIVATE PARKING LOTS

Bronte has curbside paid parking throughout the district. These parking spaces help promote turnover and ensure there are spaces for customers of nearby businesses. Look for the pay-by-plate machines. Use the HONK mobile app to make it even easier.

Many businesses have free parking in their commercial lots. These are privately owned and for customers of the adjacent stores, restaurants, and businesses only while on the premises. Look for signage and check with the business you’re visiting to ensure you've parked in the right spot. While these lots might be empty, don’t be tempted. The cost of towing isn’t worth it!

(FREE AFTER 6 PM, SUNDAYS AND HOLIDAYS)

OAKVILLE WIND ORCHESTRA SUMMER CONCERT SERIES Oakville Wind Orchestra oakvillewindorchestra.ca info@oakvillewindorchestra.ca The Oakville Wind Orchestra (OWO) is back in action! For dozens of years, the Orchestra put on summer concerts at the Bandshell in Coronation Park. A few years ago, due to flooding in the park, the OWO needed to find another venue. Stephen Williams, president of the OWO, says it worked with the Town of Oakville to find another location and decided on Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park. He adds, “This is a great venue. It’s in an accessible location with parking and room for a large audience. People can also enjoy dinner before or after the 7pm concerts. We have felt very welcomed in Bronte and our audiences have grown.” If you’re looking for a culturally enriching (and fun) Tuesday evening for your family (or a date night), pull up a lawn chair near the gazebo in the park and take a musical journey through the ages!

oseph Malin, a Jewish immigrant, opened the first known fish and chip shop in London in the 1860s. While the origin of the tasty duo dates back to the 15th century – the first recipe appeared in a 1781 cookbook. Around the 1960s, when art, music, TV, and the film industry took off, so did the consumption of fish and chips – a mainstay that suddenly became cool and trendy. Fast forward to 2022, Culinary Tourism shares that fish and chip shops are thriving again with a new resurgence of popularity in Ontario. Some say the coating should be thin and light and shatter into crispy shards when you bite into it - like the consistency of tempura batter. Others argue that the coating should be thick and puffy with a combination of crispness and a touch of chewiness. This is a discussion that elicits much fervour after a pint or two. Some insist that the batter should be dry, while others are emphatic that it isn't worth eating if it isn't seeping a bit of oil.

Use chilled beer and flour before coating the fish to achieve the perfect batter. The optimum heat of the oil should be between 350ºF and 375ºF. If the oil is too hot, the crust will burn, and if the oil isn't hot enough, you'll end up with a soggy, greasy coating. Does it sound like too much can go wrong? We recommend that you leave it to the professionals. We have compiled a list of the freshest, tastiest, crispiest, and most enjoyed fish and chip shops in Oakville and Burlington.

here’s nothing like fresh fruit; a common phrase heard throughout the summer. Many find it refreshing, especially when served cold. What if you were to learn that grilling brings out the best flavours of some varieties? Whether using gas or charcoal, the intense heat adds a smoky-sweet flavor or caramelized texture to most fruits – creating more reasons to include fruit in your dishes.

Grilling Methods Your fruit isn’t quite ripe – no worries. That unripened condition is perfect for grilling. It's important that the raw fruit be slightly firm so that it holds up on the grill. The heat caramelizes the sugars in fruit and weakens the structure. Overripe or mushy fruit will be more likely to fall apart on the grill. Most fruit is fairly delicate, so cut fruit into large chunks or slices to help it maintain its structure. Also, larger pieces are less likely to fall between the grates. Small fruits such as strawberries and grapes can go on skewers so you don't lose them to the flames.

For the coveted grill marks, most fruit will be grilled over high heat for three minutes without moving or turning it to get the perfect sear. Flip and cook for one to three minutes more. The surface of the fruit needs time to sear so that it won't stick. Be warned; some sticking could happen no matter what you do. Sometimes you get better grill marks with unoiled fruit.

Look Local Volume 10 | Issue 5


By placing a hearty piece of fruit flesh side down, you'll get that caramelization. High heat causes some grilled fruits to give off a lot of juice. By placing the fruit on a rimmed baking sheet, you can catch all that juicy goodness after it comes off the grill. The juice would be a great marinade for proteins like pork and fish.

Best Oils to Use Use a neutral-tasting oil on the fruit that's suitable for high heat, such as safflower or grapeseed oil. Brushing olive or avocado oil directly on the grates while they’re cold is also effective for keeping the fruit from sticking.

Which

Fruits Grill

the Best?

Pineapple, watermelon, lemons, peaches, bananas, avocado, apples, and pears are some of the tastiest fruits to grill that hold up against the heat. Pineapple’s tanginess and acidity become sweet and aromatic with the intense heat of the grill. Cut your pineapples into slices or wedges and grill them for three minutes on each side. Pineapple needs more time to cook than peaches and citrus fruit do. To help dense fruits heat all the way through, you can put the lid on the grill for a few minutes at a time. HEALTH BENEFITS - low in calories and rich in fiber, aids in digestion, good bone health as well as and anti-inflammatory.

Grilled watermelon takes on a smoky-sweet flavor that is truly out of this world. Set your grill on medium, instead of hot, to avoid scorching the wedges while cooking for 3 minutes on each side. HEALTH BENEFITS - a good source of vitamin C, as well as the antioxidant citrulline, which has been associated with improved blood pressure. Grilled lemons take only five minutes to grill, drizzled with a little olive oil, and the heat loosens their sour, citrusy juices and adds a tasty, charred flavor. HEALTH BENEFITS - lemons may support heart health, weight control, and digestive health. Cut the peaches in half and remove the pit. Lightly brush each side of the peaches with olive oil and grill each side for 4 to 5 minutes until grill marks appear. HEALTH BENEFITS - peaches are rich in vitamin C and great for digestion

Cut your banana in half lengthwise, and grill for 3 minutes for a firmer fruit. Or you can leave the peel on the banana and slice it lengthwise. Wrap it in foil and grill until it reaches your desired texture. Scoop directly out of the peel; adding it as a topping. HEALTH BENEFITS - bananas are rich in potassium, which helps regulate fluid balance on warm summer days. Char marks add a smoky flavour to an avocado. Grilling them makes avocados extra creamy. Grill flesh side down for 4 to 6 minutes. HEALTH BENEFITS - a superfood that provides essential benefits for your well-being. Cut your apples sideways into slices and place them on the grill for 2 minutes on each side. HEALTH BENEFITS - help stabilize blood sugar, helps to lower cholesterol levels, and may help prevent colon cancer. Numerous other benefits. Cut pears in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds.

HEALTH BENEFITS - pears are anti-inflammatory and contain anthocyanins which may help to prevent diabetes. Experiment with different fruits on the bar-b. Mix them into your favourite sandwiches, salads, or meat dishes. Whether you use a grillsafe baking dish, skewer some fruit on kabobs, or place slices directly on the grill, they’ll be ready in minutes. LL
