As the weather gets warmer, lighter meals, summer ingredients and grilling come to mind, so I decided to go with a Southeast Asian theme for my Cascade Platinum dinner party. See recipes for: Burmese Tea Leaf Salad, Pok Pok grilled pork shoulder, and Grilled Corn with Salty Coconut Cream.Read More
The first time I came across this salad was actually at Burma Superstar in San Francisco in 2010. It was an instant love. A crunchy salad with lots of nuts and seeds is right up my ally. It’s healthy, full of good fats, and thus substantial.Read More
Grilling meat on a sheet… that doesn’t sound right to me. Shouldn’t the meat be touching the grill? Surprisingly it didn’t have to!
When I was introduced to COOKINA Reusable Grilling Sheet I was also proposed with the question “what’s on your grill”?
I’m honest and transparent about what I do, and as someone who’s skeptical and somewhat critical about everything, I had to do more research. Luckily, the more I learned, the more enthusiastic I got about Pure Leaf. It isn’t just another “iced tea” on the market, but it’s the only ready to drink iced tea in Canada made from fresh tea leaves.Read More
The rich and creamy yam puree with salty bacon, sweet walnuts, and juicy bursts of tangy pomegranate seeds makes for a festive flavour explosion. It covers many textures as well and the flavour profiles are compatible no matter how you look at it.Read More
Chefs and master butchers tell us the biggest mistakes people make when making or cooking sausages. Also a recap of The Great Canadian Sausage Making Competition at the Fraser Valley Food Show in Abbotsford, BC.Read More
The sauce is meaty and flavourful, full of umami from the fermented bean. The noodles are thick and chewy, and the cucumbers add a cooling contrast in flavour and texture. It’s one of my go-to dishes when dining at Northern style Chinese restaurants.Read More
I had chosen the Thai Cucumber Salad for its simplicity and use of summery ingredients. I enjoy cucumber and tomato in salads or gazpacho but this was a chance to try them with different flavours. I loved how easily the salad came together in the mortar and it was a pleasure to make.Read More
