In Search Of Turkey

Just because Thanksgiving has come and gone – at least for us Canadians – doesn’t mean you need to forget about turkey. Turkey is no longer considered a special occasion meat reserved for one or two times a year. In fact, turkey is one of the healthiest meats you can buy, with ground turkey being 2% leaner than skinless chicken breasts. The secret to replacing turkey in your recipe repertoire for dishes like tacos, chili and meatloaf? Add spices to the raw meat instead of during the cooking process. This will ensure the meat takes on the flavour of the spices rather than just taste like turkey.

In Search Of Quintessential Fall Flavours

Read about my recent dining experience at Tap Restaurant, where I savoured every bite of their Duo of Moulard Duck. The duck is served two ways, with the leg confit and breast seared. Served with a fresh English pea ragu, the dish was full of rich flavours and a level of earthiness that for me defines the approaching fall season.

In Search Of Blueberry Lavender Jam

Here’s the thing I love the most about Missing Goat jams: they actually taste like fruit! I stopped buying commercially produced jam a long time ago, finding the product overly sweet. This summer we tried making our own jam, but our pectin aided efforts only resulted in an inedible sugary mess that held very little flavour from the initial inspiration – the fruit. Needless to say, Heather Cameron has the magic touch.
