It makes me cringe hearing a chef advise young cooks to take to the stove for love, not money. I get it. Passion is the pilot light that sparks a career. It’s a key ingredient in great cooking....

Now you have me thinking, poutine tacos.  Hmm, maybe with a hot soft flour tortilla and the gravy poured over the whole thing.  
Sorry, I just miss poutine.

Your tacos sound quite good.  Do you make your own preserved lime?  I've made salted lemons but never tried limes.

Hangar Steak

Sauteed Asparagus, Brown Butter Bearnaise

Simple and a chance to practice a little sauce making. Brown butter Bearnaise is completely decadent...

Growing, taking back...

“It’s still incredibly exciting and attractive as a prospect for farmers to sell directly to supermarkets. Everything gets purchased, they’ll buy in bulk,” he suggests. “But you’re at their mercy. It’s a self-inflicted problem, farmers aren’t just stuck, they decide to go into business and become reliant on the supermarkets. If you become reliant on just one buyer and suddenly they can get what they want cheaper, then you’re fucked.”

“The Food Assembly is a French concept created by French entrepreneurs Guilhem Chéron and Marc-David Choukroun,” explains Katie Roche, who moved from Dublin to London to join The Food Assembly team. “They saw the need for a healthier food system, one that isn’t driven by global prices, big industry, and dictated by supermarkets.”

There are currently 26 “Assemblies” in the UK, with over 700 across in France. Customers order the products they want online based on what the producer has available that week. The produce can’t come from further than 150 miles but most of what I see is much more local.

UK farmers are ditching the supermarkets and selling directly to customers. Aesthetic specifications are non-existent and you’re free to sell whatever you want.

Ducks and Hockey Sticks

Must be Canadian!

Watch the video.

Four ducklings trapped inside the storm sewer system in Regina were rescued by a quick thinking family who used a butterfly net attached to a hockey stick to retrieve the birds through the sewer grate.

Curried Pickerel Soup

A little immune system boost, there seems to be a flu of sorts making the rounds here. Thought a chicken stock based, spicy soup would be a good idea.

Homemade chicken stock, tumeric, roasted cumin, fresh ginger, garlic, onions, carrots, pickerel. Simple though delicious!

Gorgeous

The local grocery store has sealed bid auctions for various charities. I was there yesterday (they don't sell toilet paper at the farmers market....yet) and this was the one that is up for bids. I just need to win the lotto....

It says they're first editions. One would hope they weren't reproductions.

Spicy Meatball Sub

Asian Spiced Pork Meatballs, La Bianca Cheese, Shaved Asparagus, Sauteed Shiitake Mushrooms, Wholewheat Bun

Berkshire pork meatballs, I used fish sauce, garlic, fresh chili pepper, finely diced bacon and parsley to spicy up the meatballs. Baked in a 350F oven for about 40 minutes, turned over at 20 minutes.

1 lb ground pork
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 whole chili, diced (leave in the seeds and membrane if you like hot)
2 tbsp finely diced bacon
1 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp chopped Italian parsley
1 egg

Mix everything together, shape into meatballs (about 1 1/2 to 2 ") and bake at 350F for 20 minutes. Turn and bake for another 20 minutes until done. Adjust baking times depending on the size of your meatballs.

They are spicy and go best in the submarine sandwich.

Trying a new cheese from The Cheesiry (farmers market) called La Bianca. Seasonal, available from late May through November. From their website: A soft, creamy, surface ripened cheese with delicate flavour of mushroom undertones. Delicious and I'll be buying more, went wonderfully well in the sub.

Shaved fresh asparagus. Just use a vegetable peeler to shave your asparagus, nibble on the leftover bits as you cook.

Sauteed shiitakes, simple.

Food coma may have happened after dinner.

Story

Local - Organic - Loving Food
Introduction

Food is my first passion.

If you really want to make a friend, go to someone's house and eat with them...the people who give you their food give you their heart - Cesar Chavez

Food is a basic hedonistic pleasure, a sensual instinct we all share and revel in. - Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi, Jerusalem

He who controls the spice controls the universe.- Frank Herbert, Dune

It's not fair!! - Sarah, Labyrinth.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living. It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.  - Dr. Seuss 

Numerical Palindromes - it's a thing!!!
