Favourite Food Signs of Summer

These days, I can't get enough of cherries. To me, nothing says summer like a big bowl of sweet red cherries.

I have fond memories of cherry picking with my family in British Columbia as a kid, and stuffing myself silly in the process. You can try picking your own in your area. Check out this site with a list of pick-your-own farms across Canada - PickYourOwn.org.

When I was at Chez Panisse in California recently, one of the desserts on the menu was a bowl of Cannard Farm Royal Ann and Bing cherries ($8). 

Whether you have them fresh, or in a luscious pie, like this one from Madeleines, Cherry Pie and Ice Cream, adorable little café in Toronto I just discovered, it's one of my favourite signs of summer.

Now it's your turn. What food signals long lazy summers? Please post your comments below.
