Dear friends, this Sunday, July 20, will be our last Borrel for a while. At the risk of oversharing, Alison is not only one of the world’s most wonderful waitresses, but more importantly my fiancee and we are getting married at the end of the month! Following that we will be going on our honeymoon.
But fear not, Borrel at The Ossington will return Sunday, Sept. 7! And part of the reason our honeymoon is so long is that we will be investing time back in the Netherlands, studying and sampling more Dutch treats that we can try to recreate for you back here in Toronto. … OK, it’s hardly a business trip, but we do hope it can help make Borrel even better going ahead!
We would like to thank everyone who has attended the Borrels or World Cup matches for their enthusiasm for our humble little venture. Considering I have absolutely no prior experience in this line of work, your compliments about the food are what kept us going, knowing that we were doing something right. It’s been a huge thrill to prepare these foods for such appreciative customers and we hope to continue to do so for years to come. A final big thanks to everyone at The Ossington for giving us the opportunity to do this.
We hope to see you this Sunday. … And again in September! (Enjoy the rest of your summer, it’ll be boerenkool-appropriate weather again before you know it!)
