As I’m sure you all know, I’ve been working with Start From Scratch, a Calgary-based cooking initiative, for just over a year. We are dedicated to teaching university students get back to basics in the kitchen and learn how to cook. In just over a year and a half we’ve educated over 70 students with our free 10-week program. We’re able to do so with the generous support of many local suppliers and restaurants, including some of the talent that will be cooking for you on the evening of June 21, 2012.
My SFS partner-in-crime, Dan Clapson, and I have been planning this event for months and are super stoked to now be able to share details with you of what is sure to be an amazing evening of great friends, delicious food, and superb wine pairings.
When: Thursday, June 21, 2012 – 8pm
Where: Casel Marche, J. Webb Wine Merchant, Market 17
What: Five local chefs and five local food bloggers teaming up to create five delectable, easy-to-recreate dishes for your enjoyment, along with wine pairings. As well there will be lots of awesome silent auction items to bid on.
Full details can be found here.
The Food Bloggers of Calgary are coming together to put on a bake sale this weekend, February 10 & 11, 2012. All proceeds will go towards Brown Bagging for Calgary’s Kids. If you’re in the area, stop by and check it out! I’ll be there with Savoury Cheese & Caraway Biscotti, recipe for which I’ll post after.
This egg dish is so simple to make and would be great for a big brunch where you didn’t want to spend a lot of time slaving over the oven. After posting this picture to Twitter/Instagram, I was informed that it’s called Shakshuka. I did a little research, and though this recipe isn’t the traditional form of the dish, it’s definitely along the same lines.
You can add whatever herbs and spices catch your fancy. Also, add any type of sausage, bacon or ham you like. I made a vegetarian version just by omitting the sausage and adding a few more whole tomatoes.
This was on the menu for the Interactive Monday Night dinner at Market 17 I hosted last week. Read about the Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cheese Biscuits I made for it too. So. Yummy.
I made these a few days ago for the Interactive Monday Dinner hosted by Casel Marche. It’s a dinner to introduce new people to Market 17 and J. Webb Wine Merchant using Cassis Bistro’s space. Not only do I love introducing people to good food, I love any opportunity to have free reign at a grocery store!
My theme was Breakfast (my favourite meal) for Dinner. I knew I wouldn’t have a ton of time to cook, so I chose simple items that still packed the wow-factor.
These biscuits from Canadian Living were so melt-in-your-mouth, even I was surprised! Whenever I’m making a cheesy pastry, I like to double the amount of cheese, so add as much or more of what’s called for in this recipe.
