Lori McDonald

Beamsville, Ontario, Canada


Lori McDonald has spent the better part of her career in the food and wine industry in many different facets. She was motivated to move to Niagara by a lunch she once ate at On the Twenty restaurant in 1998. In 2010, she wrote The Harrow Fair Cookbook with her sister Moira Sanders that went on to win an award from Taste Canada and become a national best-seller.

Throughout her career, Lori has gained insight into the exciting connection between agriculture and the local culinary scene, acquiring a discerning palette along the way. She has an appreciation for the science behind agricultural practices and cooking. Lori also has the uncanny ability for attracting talented, food-obsessed individuals that share her passion for making Provisions great.

As an avid foodie she was inspired to provide accompanying foodstuffs to supplement all that Niagara wines have to offer. Savoury and sweet shortbreads to provide a toothsome pairing for big reds and refreshing whites, condiments to enhance cheese pairings to wines and confections to top off any picnic or road trip. The Provisions team is passionate about bringing people together through food and sharing their love of delicious handmade foodstuffs.

Why We’re One of a Kind

Provisions Food Company has worked tirelessly to source the best in local, single variety or single farm fruit to create this line of high quality, all natural fruit pastes. The concept of single variety is influenced by the wines of the Niagara Region. Like the great Rieslings, Pinot Noirs and single estate wines of the area, this luscious, true-to-fruit line of spreads capture the essence of the land and the best qualities of the fruit.

Plus our line of sweet shortbread cookies relies on classic flavour combinations packaged in a two-bite size. Handmade in small batches with high quality, all natural ingredients, these shortbreads are a toothsome accompaniment to your favourite Ontario wines.
