“Frittata is my go-to brunch dish—it’s lighter than quiche, but when topped with Ontario Brie it still delivers that indulgent decadence. This wood fire frittata is a quick and easy favourite—I love that it only uses one pan, making for a simple clean up. The frittata picks up a beautiful smoky aroma, cooking over the bbq grill or campfire, for a perfect summer dish.”  - Olivia Simpson
