Slow Food organizations now exist in countries around the world and comprise about , members. The mandate of Slow Food Calgary is to make local connections between consumers, chefs, food processors, and producers of good, clean, fair food, to build public awareness of agricultural systems and to promote the concepts of equality and responsibility for our food system.

For many people, the words describing our dining rituals and etiquette change from country of origin and also from one generation to the next. For example, the square of cloth or paper used while eating to protect the clothes, and wipe the mouth and hands, is referred to by some as a napkin and by others as a serviette. In the United Kingdom and Canada both terms are used. Language evolves, and today, as society relaxes with new dining experiences, the serviette in North America is often referred to as the paper.
Napkins, on the other hand, are made of heavier material, likely cotton or linen. They are easier to fold into shapes than their paper relatives. I am often asked about the choice of table linens to accompany a lunch or dinner party. A colour code chosen by the host allows for a more informal table, whereas.
Smaller sized napkins are appropriate for a luncheon, while larger napkins accompany a dinner. A common complaint with regard to the care of cloth napkins is laundering and subsequent ironing. My answer is quite simple: Paper napkins are to be used once and then thrown away. To me, there is nothing nicer than a linen napkin, however it is presented, whether crisply ironed or naturally wrinkled. You say paper serviette — I say cloth napkin. One of the most remarkable things about wine is also one of the things most taken for granted: This chameleon-like variability of flavour is a rarity - the exception rather than the rule for fermented drinks derived from fruit.
You would be hard-pressed to find an apple cider that tastes like grapes or strawberries or anything other than apples. But finding a grape-based wine that tastes like apples? A huge part of the allure of wine is its ability to harness the best and purest expressions of other fruits and showcase them with startling clarity in the glass. The simplest way to go about finding the fruit in your glass of wine is to start generally and work your way down to specifics.
If you focus first on which fruit group you are sensing on your nose or palate, it will become much easier to zone in on the specific fruit s the wine is displaying. Certain wine grapes also have particular fruit hallmarks, flavours that define what the varietal should taste like: If you know what grape is in the bottle you will have a big head start on the fruit flavours that should be found inside. On rare occasions you will come across a wine that so epitomizes the characteristics and nuances of a particular fruit that it is like finding the very essence of the fruit in a bottle.
If you want to marvel at how the noble grape can be a perfect mirror of its sister produce, I would start with one of these two bottles, all available locally: If you have ever struggled to locate cassis notes in a red, try this one and it will forever be your guide. Made from the best-known Port varietals touriga nacional, tinta roriz, tinta francisca, touriga franca , the flavours of this wine are as blue as its label. Blueberry can be a tough fruit flavour to isolate in a glass of wine, but this one smells and tastes bright, ripe and blue.

Restaurateur, father, engineer and soccer champion, Michael Bogale, brings passion for his cultural cuisine to the heart of Kensington. Warm, richly-coloured and filled with art, the dining room is buzzing with conversation as guests sip wine and dine on fragrant dishes. This scene is familiar to most restaurantgoers, but there is one notable difference - nobody is using cutlery.
Despite these changes, Marathon has stayed true to its roots and has consistently offered high-quality, delicious and flavourful fare made with care. Ethiopia is located in the Horn of Africa and one of the oldest sites of human existence known to scientists. Its rich ancient cultural history spans back many centuries and was one of the major world powers in the third century AD. Aside from a brief period of Italian occupation in the mid 20th century, it is the only African country that resisted colonial control and maintained its sovereignty. The majority of Ethiopians are Orthodox Christians and eat vegan foods for days of the year, all through Lent and on Wednesdays and Fridays.
As a result, vegetables and legumes constitute a large part of the traditional gastronomy. In , he emigrated to Rome, Italy, where he met Mimi, whose parents worked for the Ethiopian embassy. They dated, fell in love and got married. Having been educated as a civil engineer, Michael hoped to continue his education, but it proved difficult in Italy since one had to speak fluent Italian in order to attend courses. Upon learning that he had a cousin in Calgary, he decided to take the trek across the globe to begin a new chapter in his life.
When he arrived in Canada, Michael was disappointed to find that there were many barriers facing him in order for his education to be recognized. In , he brought Mimi to Calgary where they were able to be together and start a family. Having learned the art of cooking from her mother, a tradition that had been. Michael was a bit apprehensive at first, having never before been in the business in any capacity, but soon warmed to the idea. People were curious and excited about this new cuisine.
For the first year or so, Michael made a point of going to each table and educating diners on the proper way to enjoy the cuisine: Mimi makes sure not to make the food too spicy, to cater to the North American palate. The rest, as they say, is history. Although most of the food is vegetarian, Marathon also serves meat dishes such as lamb, chicken and beef.
Wot, an aromatic vegetable stew, is a staple of Ethiopian cuisine. This stew has many different expressions, depending on the cook, and can contain lentils, chickpeas, split peas, kidney beans, cabbage and carrots. It is served on Injera, a spongy flatbread about 20 inches in diameter. Injera is akin to a sourdough pancake, and traditionally made from an ancient grain called teff, which is gluten-free,. However, teff is difficult to find in the western world.
Due to the recent popularity of gluten-free foods and high-nutrient grains, some producers in North America have started growing and distributing the crop, although not yet widely, so local injera-makers need to improvise and be creative with what is readily available. Even though Injera is incredibly delicious, it is also very filling. Since the food is eaten with the fingers, it is easy to use too much bread, so Michael has started putting cutlery on the tables. This allows guests to savour and enjoy the nuances.
It would give you a sense of commonality and we are very careful not to make it too spicy. We try to make it as authentic as possible. If you are brand new to Ethiopian food, Michael recommends ordering the House Specialty platter, allowing you to explore the menu by featuring six dishes served atop. One exceptional selection is Inguday Tibs, a slightly spicy portobello mushroom and onion dish that is earthy, flavourful, juicy and succulent. Boasting an array of 15 choices which works out to be less than a dollar per dish , the buffet allows guests to enjoy many different flavours and go back for seconds or thirds of their new favourite dishes.

Marathon offers a modest but quality selection of wines and beers, including Tusker Beer imported from Kenya; a malty, crisp, slightly sweet and refreshing beer with a clean, hoppy finish.

Cider is the name given to the alcoholic beverage made from the fermented juice of apples, pears and other fruits. Hard cider is a term more common in the United States, although it is used in Canada.
Soft cider is the term for nonalcoholic cider. Cider used to be the most common alcoholic beverage in North America from colonial times up until the mid 19th century, when westward expansion led to the harvesting of grain rather than fruit, leading to beer becoming the most common drink. Two world wars, prohibition, the Great Depression, the destruction of orchards due to urban expansion, the poor quality of existing ciders, and the growth of cheap beer through most of the twentieth century almost drove cider into extinction.
However, thanks to little cideries in the U. While apple cider is the by far the most popular cider, pear cider or perry, as it is sometimes called , is also quite common. Other fruits are also made into cider; Growers Cider Company out of B. Different fruits have their own unique requirements due to different sugar, acid and tannin levels, but the process is essentially the same for all of them. Most apples and pears used for cider are grown specifically for that purpose, and are otherwise inedible.
Some ciders are then aged for a few months, some for up to three years. Much like beer, cider can be made to various alcohol strengths. In addition, carbonation can vary from flat to an almost champagne level. Most ciders found in Alberta tend to be petllant to sparkling, with very few still ciders. Some ciders are naturally carbonated, while some have added CO2. Ciders can range in clarity from good to brilliant, with modern filtration techniques removing all evidence of pulp.
Most ciders have the clarity of young white wine. Finally, the colour is determined by the fruit used in the cider. Enough jokes are made about the unfortunate similarity between the colour of apple juice and certain bodily fluids, but in truth, most apple and pear ciders are almost colourless or have a slight straw colour. Today, most other ciders are usually artificially coloured to represent the fruit within. In Quebec, some cider producers, obviously inspired by icewine, have created cidre de glace ice cider. Much like the wine, the apples are frozen either before or after being harvested.
Because the juice is more concentrated, a completely different style of cider is created. There are three different ice ciders available in Alberta, and one, Domaine Pinnacle, also produces a sparkling version. Drawing a parallel to the growth of the craft beer culture, cider also is expanding in styles and quality. While there are still some mass-produced, artificially sweetened and coloured, adjunct ladened, bland tasting ciders out there sound familiar to beer lovers? There are at least six different organic ciders listed in Alberta, and some, like Sea Cider out of Vancouver Island, are recreating the old farmhouse style of ciders, using traditional methods, and even bottling them in resealable mL bottles.
If the importation of upscale foreign ciders continues to rise, we may soon see ciders divided up into regions and countries in catalogs and lists. Restaurants are also adding more ciders to their menus, realizing their wide variety and versatility can fill the gap between beer and wine. Because ciders come in an almost limitless variety of flavours, they can pair up with almost any food. They are also useful in cooking in sauces, soups and dressings. They are a natural with ham, sausages, roast pork, cold cuts, chicken and feathered game. Since they range in sweetness and in levels of carbonation, they can be used in much the same way as wine, at a fraction of the cost.
Even the most expensive bottles of regular cider come in at the price level of very cheap wine, and those packaged in six-packs are cheaper than most beers. Ice cider is about one-third the cost of icewine. Four ovens, a giant fridge, plenty of counter space, plastic knives and step-stools. A typical kitchen, this is not. With parental supervision of course. For just over a year, Epicurious Kids Cookery, located in Crowfoot Crossing, has aimed to teach kids to be more confident and comfortable in the kitchen when they cook, as well as being more adventurous when trying new foods.
Michelle Friese, founder and instructor, uses her background in teaching, and love of food from all over the world, to teach children how to prepare practical meals that they can be proud to cook for their families. Maternity leave three years ago left Friese with plenty of time on her hands and she used that opportunity to spend more time cooking and experimenting with the flavours she had come to love around the world.
Aside from learning to create meals, Epicurious Kids Cookery teaches kids the importance of planning, working together and being organized. Classes of up to a dozen are divided into smaller groups and encouraged to share the workload to be more efficient and to let each student have a chance to learn. We go through everything. Summer classes are also offered with morning and afternoon classes available. For more information visit www. Start From Scratch, a cooking program offered to students at the University of Calgary and Mount Royal University, was designed from the start to make post-secondary students more aware of proper nutrition and to show them how easy it is to make delicious, simple food.
The program is taught by food journalist and founder Dan Clapson, along with fellow instructor Jacinthe Koddo, and structured to demystify cookery to students who have a love or fascination with it but have never had the proper guidance to explore their curiosity. Remarkably, the program is free to students who are notoriously broke from tuition fees to begin with. The other event is a wine tasting with Home Tasting Room.

My Mom called them turnips. My classmates called them turnips. I thought it was some kind of Upper Canadian affectation! Only now do I realize that the turnip and the rutabaga are two different things. The modification appears to have been arranged by Mother Nature herself. In , a Korean-Japanese botanist named Woo Jang-Choon came up with a theory to explain the homely rutabaga. He felt it was the result of a blind date between the real turnip and a cabbage sometime in the eighteenth century.
The result is the rutabaga, the. The turnip is not exactly a showstopper for looks. But put it next to its progeny, the rutabaga, and the turnip takes on a whole new glow. The rutabaga is ugly. A yellowish tinge to its skin and flesh. The turnip, by comparison is almost prettily pale, delightfully rotund, with just a touch of purple on top. Why, it looks like it may be wearing eye shadow!
I wandered into the Sunterra Market recently and found both turnips and rutabagas side by side. So I picked up samples of both and cooked them. I sampled some raw and found the turnip came out on top. Cooked, the rutabaga wins hands down. The flesh turns a bright orange and the earthy flavour is entirely appealing. The turnip truck leaves town at dusk. Sharpen your knife before you approach your roly-poly victim, lying on the cutting board.
Make him less prone to roll. Cut off each end, then invert the rutabaga and produce another flat surface by taking off a sliver from the side. Now the thing will lie flat and passive as you turn it into slices ready to be peeled. I find the fibrous nature of raw rutabaga has a tendency to turn the knife as you cut into it, so be prepared with a little clockwise counter pressure as you rock the knife back and forth and down. Slow and steady wins the race. As late summer and early autumn arrive, thoughts on the prairie turn to the harvest.
While visions of combines and threshers usually come to mind, on the other side of the Rocky Mountains, a whole different harvest begins. From August to October, vineyards in British Columbia and the rest of the northern hemisphere become furious with activity, as there is only a small window of opportunity for the pickers to get the grapes off the vine at just the right time. Just what is the right time?
There is no easy answer to that question. Latitude, altitude, soil type, climate, microclimate, aspect, drainage, topography - all the very definition of the word terroir, play a part. Weather forecasts are also important, as no one wants to lose a crop to extreme heat, frost or hail. The human element comes in when the winemaker makes decisions on irrigation, pruning, and which grape varietals are picked, when and where. Different parts of the vineyard may be harvested at different times depending on ripeness; the levels of tannins, sugars and acids present in the grapes.
These properties will determine what style of wine will be produced. Some winemakers will use refractometers and phenolphthalein indicators, others just like to taste the grapes. Once the grapes have achieved the desired ripeness, an army of workers will descend into the vineyard. Where do these people come.
While a few are oenology students, almost all are migrant workers, mostly from Mexico, who work their way through California up the west coast to B. While mechanical harvesters are used in some regions, most wineries dismiss them as being too primitive in their inability to distinguish ripe grapes from the unripe or rotten ones, or even mud, branches, clumps of leaves or other unwanted bits.
Machines can also damage the fruit or break the skins when beating the vines with rubber tubing in order to get the grape bunches to drop on conveyer belts. Human harvesters are gentler with the fruit and can discern ripe grapes from those needing more time. Also, since they get paid by the weight of their pickings, it is in their best interest to work as efficiently and quickly as they can. A good worker can pick tons of fruit a day. While this seems like it might be fun, as in almost all manual labour, it is hard work. Bending down almost all bunches lie within one to four feet off the ground , contorting yourself into positions in order to get a pair of shears to cut off at the top of the cluster and not your fingers without damaging the grapes, and then getting up to gently toss them into a bin, is no easy task.
Having spent 30 minutes doing it one afternoon, I speak from experience. I also know I would be a very poor both literally and financially migrant worker. At any rate, do yourself a favour and visit B. With more wineries popping up every year, there is always something new to see, and new vintages to drink! REAP founder Stephanie Jackman left her career in marketing in after becoming disillusioned by promoting products and services that were not always local, environmentally friendly or socially responsible.
While the three founding members were not from the foodservice industry, more restaurants and other food-related businesses are joining the 80 plus members that are now a part of REAP. One of those businesses is LEAF, a nationwide foodservice sustainability certification program founded by local dietitian Janine Windsor. Working with a team of environmental consultants, Windsor created a list of 10 areas of sustainability in which restaurants are evaluated, including Food Purchasing and Menu Items, Energy Use, Water Use, Waste and Recycling, Chemicals, and Policy and Innovation.
Did you know that the foodservice industry is one of the largest consumers of electricity and water in the country? REAP, on the other hand, does not have such stringent criteria, but still requires that members be locally owned, manufacture or sell sustainable products or services and demonstrate a commitment to sustainability in their operations.
REAP goes one step further, organizing many events and introducing opportunities to connect restaurateurs and producers with their clients. See page 7 for more details. For a time, the traditional producers such as in the Rhone valley pretended not to notice that the Australians were on to something. Wine drinkers loved the thick, jammy fruit, the spice, and even a little sweetness that was completely at odds to the traditional peppery or perfumed examples coming out of France.
Despite the fact that the grape is planted from Chile to Greece, it really only comes in two types, warmer climate, fruit driven Australian styles or leaner, spicier traditional styles such as in France-these are the two sides of the same coin that we will focus on. From the approximately different cuttings brought by Busby, syrah was one of the most successful at handling the hotter and drier climate of Australia. When exactly it started going by the name shiraz is open to debate, but I like to think it comes from the plural of syrah-said in your worst Crocodile Dundee accent.
McLaren Vale and Barossa are considered warmer climates with wines showing higher alcohol, bigger tannins, full and rich flavours. The Barossa is home to Peter Lehmann, Penfolds, Yalumba and many more, and to some this area is the purest form of shiraz out there-wines are big, lush, and velvety. The cooler climates producers tend to be smaller and less well known to. Showing both lush fruit and a serious earthiness about it. Roasted coffee, spice, raisins, and chocolate complement berry fruits and earth. Ngambie Lakes is an up and coming area to keep an eye on from Australia. Ripe fruit with tobacco, spice, menthol, liquorice, and firm tannins drink with your best steaks or by the fire.
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, so does it really matter whether a wine says Syrah or Shiraz on the label? Some might find it too much, but with our fleeting barbecue season and great local meats, you know what to do with this bottle. A nose of chocolate and black fruits, with some of that South African smokiness and wet herb lead into lush fruits on the palate with easy tannins and drinkability. The novice or casual wine drinker loved the sweetness and the fruit of shiraz and the bargain seeker loved the price.
Coupled with excellent branding including the entire menagerie of Australian critters Koala Crossing anyone? Other countries and wine regions followed suit labelling their own wines with the Aussie spelling where before they labelled it as syrah. Most wine produced these days is released ready to drink and if you are buying for long term cellaring, syrah tends to mature better when cellaring past a decade.
This is slightly skewed by a greater number of very high end French bottles over very high end Australian, but examples of both are capable of cellaring years and beyond if desired. For shiraz, its success was starting to work against itself. The name had become synonymous with a simple fruit bomb, and many consumers were fatigued by shiraz. Australia, though still on top, was noticing the excitement for Australian wine was waning and the way forward was not in value wines, but in premium wines across the board. For shiraz, and Australian wine in general, this meant slightly cooler climates, better site selection of vineyards and focussing on the diversity of styles coming from the land down under.
These days, having syrah vs. Exceptions exist everywhere, but generally cooler climate producers will label as syrah and warmer as shiraz. So what do I prefer? There is a time and place for both, but sometimes, you just need a wine to enjoy rather than talk too much about-and a bottle of shiraz just begs to be enjoyed.
Find Part 2 of this special 2-part article on page Corn tortillas are very versatile and can be used in many Mexican dishes. They are readily available to buy in stores, but here the master of Mexican cuisine, Norma French of Los Sabores de Mexico, shows us the art of making them at home. Since they are made from corn, they are considered gluten-free.

Our recipe makes approximately eight tortillas of mm diameter and 3mm thick. It will take just five minutes to prepare and five minutes to cook each tortilla. Stir together with your hand to combine. The flour and water should come together to form a slightly sticky dough. Continue to knead for minutes. The dough should become smoother and less sticky, and you should lose the grittiness of the corn flour. It should transform into the texture of playdough.
Turn on a burner to medium heat and warm up a skillet. Tear off some dough and roll it into a ball about 50mm in diameter, then flatten on two sides. Roll out the dough to about 3mm thick, or if you are using a tortilla press, lightly flour one side of the paper that comes with it and place the dough ball in the centre. Close the press with the handle, then open and peel back one side of the paper.
Peel away the other side of the paper. Place the tortilla in the dry heated skillet to cook for about two minutes on each side. An excellent dough will have bubbles or air pockets that appear when the tortillas are cooked. Repeat with the rest of the dough. They can be kept in the freezer for 2 months layered between wax paper to prevent sticking together. Wrap the tortillas in foil and then in plastic wrap, or place in a freezer container. Thaw frozen tortillas in the fridge before reheating in a dry skillet for seconds per side.
Chef Norma also let us have some ideas for easy-to-make dishes with homemade tortillas, there are more recipes on her website at www. Fold the tortilla in half and lightly brush oil on the outside, then reheat in a dry skillet until the cheese melts. When you remove the tortilla from pan, pinch the edges all the way around to form a wall on the outside. Be careful, as the tortilla will be very hot. Spread refried beans over the base then add salsa to cover and crumble queso fresco on top queso fresco can be found at SpringBank Cheese and Janice Beaton Fine Cheese.
Corn Dough Chile - fun and spicy Better than store-bought jalapeno poppers, corn dough chilies are made from the dough plus queso fresco, a finely diced jalapeno and salt to taste. Mix all the ingredients together till completely combined, than make a 50mm ball of the new dough and form it into the shape of a chile pepper. Use the stem of a real chile and place it where the stem should go on your dough chile. Pan fry for minutes in a small amount of oil. Roll out, or press the ball with the tortilla press till it is 3 times as thick as a regular tortilla, about 1cm, and cook in a dry heated skillet for 6 - 8 minutes.
Remove from the heat and cut open like a pita leave a half to a third attached. The inside should be slightly fluffy and the steam will be very hot. Add toppings of salsa, queso fresco and a dollop of Mexican crema. If you decide to buy tortillas instead of making your own, then be sure to toast them in a dry skillet for about 10 to 15 seconds on each side to warm them.
This will make them pliable and more enjoyable to eat. There are sixteen year-round approved farmers markets in Alberta and Calgarians get to enjoy three of them within our city limits. Farmers markets are defined as places, typically outdoors in public spaces where farmers can sell produce to the public. Since our seasons, especially winter and spring, put a damper on outdoor sales, these three markets are indoors, providing buyers and sellers with services and amenities akin to a shopping centre.
Shoppers can browse for jewellery, collectables, cosmetics, pottery, carpets and art all under the same roof. Lets take a look at what our year-round big three markets contain and see what visitors have in store. The market took over the former auto dealership of Shaganappi Pontiac Buick GMC and now represents 23 farmers and producers, 22 eateries, 7 bakeries and 9 artisans. It is this kind of collaboration and cooperation where larger vendors help out smaller producers that makes the Kingsland Market.
Find the market online at kfmcalgary. Vendors to Keep an Eye Out For: Primal Soup Company - Stop by and visit Margaret for a taste of her amazing organic and gluten-free soups. Sylvan Star Cheese - Head over to this vendor for their selection of locally produced and imported cheeses. Be sure to try their Goudas, which have been cleaning up the Canadian Cheese Grandprix year after year. I recommend the Grizzly and Smoked Medium. The market consists of 42 indoor and outdoor farm vendors and 53 boutique vendors covering categories like antiques, art, fashion and jewellery.
In case you get hungry while shopping, there are 16 food vendors that offer meals to eat on site or to take away. There is good access for parking and it is a twelve minute bus ride from the City Hall C-Train station. Check them out online at crossroadsmarket. For those with looking for something sweet, their fruit turnovers are worth the trip on their own. With tens of thousands of comics in stock and in storage, and the ability to source unique and hard to find issues.
There is something for all tastes in store and we doubt you will leave empty handed. Tour De France - As most know, I have a bit of an obsession with French pastries and the selection made available from proprietors Oliver and Aline are second to none. Whether you fancy almond croissants or strawberry tarts, you can be sure to find something to tickle your taste buds. Featuring a fresh, bright feel with over 75 vendors, 2 outdoor patios and a food court area seating for , it hosts over a million visitors a year.

Follow them on twitter calgaryfarmersmarket or visit online at calgaryfarmersmarket. Lone Pine Colony provides an excellent selection of farm-grown vegetables all the way to the end of November. If you are looking for radishes, beets, peas, potatoes, corn or carrots, the quality and freshness is tough to beat. For choco-holics, check out Choklat for their selection of 22 different hand crafted truffle creations. Do you love mini donuts but hate waiting for Stampede or Callaway Park?
If so, then check out Calgary Mini Donuts for their traditional take with cinnamon or icing sugar glaze. If you are feeling saucy and in the mood to experiment, try them with pistachio icing topped with crushed peanuts. Greens and leaf vegetables such as lettuce and kale can be picked from the outside of the whorl, leaving the core from which the greens continue to grow. Try not to let them get too large, as they become tough and bitter. The flowers of some greens, such as arugula, are very tasty and visually complement any salad. Root vegetables such as beets, potatoes and carrots should be left in the ground and harvested in October before the ground starts to freeze.
At this time, most berries should be ripening well and ready for picking. Now is the time to start getting creative and using your produce in different ways. Eating fresh is my preference, but most often too much is ripe at once. So now begins the process of sharing with friends, freezing, bottling and making preserves, wines or liqueurs from the fruit. Fruits and berries can be frozen directly in bags or sealed containers, or frozen in water which tends to maintain the freshness longer. Freeze in convenient amounts, so that portions can be retrieved and used individually,without having to defrost wasteful larger amounts.
You can use ice cube trays to freeze herbs in water, and then just add a cube to your food preparations whenever called for. You can also add different herbs to oils and vinegars and seal in jars or bottles for a period of time before using.
This allows the flavour to slowly permeate the liquid. The incredible flavoured pops combine a wide array of fruits, herbs and spices. A creative and fun way to enjoy your garden produce is to make your own. Choose and add a flavouring such as cardamom pods, dried chilies, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, lemon thyme sprigs, coriander seeds, pink peppercorns, citrus zest, lemongrass, jasmine tea and juniper berries. Prepare one cup of optional stir-ins. These give flavouring and texture to the pops. Stir-ins include citrus segments, blackberries, unsweetened dried coconut, berries, fresh mint, cucumber, papaya, pineapple or other fruit.
Distribute stirrings among Popsicle moulds, and then add the fruit mixture, leaving about 5 cm of room at the top for freezing expansion. Partially freeze for about an hour, then insert sticks and freeze again for hours Each combination of ingredients will create a refreshing unique popsicle to enjoy anytime! They have the best guacamole in the city, as well as some really good salsas try the mango! Vero Bistro has one of my favourite salads. The Heirloom Tomato Salad is filled with Hotchkiss tomatoes, a local specialty herb and produce enterprise in Rockyview.
The tiny tomatoes are little bites of intense flavour that match well with cucumber, feta, olives, chives, shallots and basil. This hearty salad, a great combination of mixed greens, beets, grated veggies, cheese, and egg, is just the thing to enjoy with a pint of their in-house brewed beer after a hot day of hiking in the mountains. Rice paper crepes are stuffed with cucumbers and carrots then served cold with a soy-wasabi sauce and sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.
The Una salads are simple, big enough to share, and really flavourful without being over-dressed. The crisp, light breading dressed with the sweet citrus aioli gives way to soft, pillowy tofu. The spicy dish really succeeds at turning vegetables into a comfort food.
Two places come to mind for a tasty lunch. Co-op Market downtown for a thin crust veggie pizza and new in Victoria Park, Cafe Rosso for their roasted vegetable panini. Makes for a satisfying lunch without bogging you down for the afternoon. Potatoes are a vegetable, right? Then the perfect French fries at Clive Burger are my favourite vegetable dish. Perfectly cooked, no need for ketchup although I would not turn down their special Clive sauce! The tempura batter is cloud-light, the frying crispy, but not overdone, and the beans fresh and bright.
The side dipping sauce Fireweed Honey-Hot Mustard is a welcome burst of sweetness and spiciness that brings the whole thing together. A must-have dish for the table.
