Who doesn’t love cheese puffs?

After this weekend, you’ll be able to make them at home after learning the craft at the Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group’s (GNAG) Choux Pastry Workshop at the Glebe Community Centre.

Aspiring bakers will learn to both cook a sweet and savoury chees puff, as well as several styles of sweet choux pastries including eclairs, profiteroles and pastry swans. The workshop runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday. Tickets are $36. Click here for more information.

Wake up Sunday morning with Pappa Bean Coffee at the Ottawa Farmers’ Market at Lansdowne, along with in-season produce including pumpkins, apples, apricots and walnuts. The market runs every Sunday at Aberdeen Square from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. until Nov. 5. Click here for more information.

Did someone say, “sake?” The Japan Festival launches Sunday morning at Ottawa Welcomes the World at Lansdowne Park with Japanese performances, cuisine, delicacies and interactive cultural booths for you to explore the Asian culture. Try on a Japanese kimono. Visitors will even be given a chance at a free trip to Japan. The party runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. inside the Horticulture Building. More information is available here.

Don’t sit around the house all day raking leaves. Get up, get out and get in the Glebe.
