Purple Passion
Purple Passion

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

I cannot for the life of me understand why more people don’t love eggplant. I think maybe eggplants are like a good friend you haven’t met yet; as soon as someone makes the proper introduction, you’ll be together for life.

Or not. In that case, more for me.

I have loved eggplant since my days of growing up in New England, where an eggplant sub was a staple at any good

Hazel's Show

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

The farmer’s whistle is made from a bent tin can and when she blows it, Hazel the border collie comes running. The other dog, Penny, whines from the house; she wants to work, too! But today it’s Hazel’s show. And the delighted crowd at Pembroke Farm laughs and applauds as she rounds up the ducks and gets them into a little wading pool. It’s the sheep she really wants, though.

Homemade

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

I scan the crowd at the Afton Community Centre anxiously. Over a hundred people have already poured in and, while I’m glad they’re at this ceilidh for the great music, I’m afraid there won’t be enough biscuits. Because, as fiddler Courtney Hogan tells us, her mother and nana made them.

At intermission, I make a break for them and greedily grab the biggest one. I slather

The Magic of Theatre
The Magic of Theatre

The Rainmaker

Review by Ann Thurlow

The Watermark Theatre is the very most comfortable place that I’ve ever been.to see a play. The wide, breezy verandah, the elegant lobby, the inspired choice of wicker chairs, the ample leg room immediately put the theatre goer in an expansive mood.

So, also, does the pre-production announcement that the Watermark is offering ten dollar seats all summer long to

How to Eat Like a Local
How to Eat Like a Local
A highly subjective guide for visitors to PEI

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

A few years ago, a tourist asked me where Islanders go to eat lobster. I explained that, generally, Islanders eat lobster at home on their own picnic tables.

“Oh, so Islanders don’t go to the lobster suppers?” he said.

“Oh no,” I said. “They go in droves. But they don’t go for the lobster—they go for the rolls and the pie.”

Chowing Down

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

What I would like, please, is that recipe for a chowder that feeds a thousand people. Because everyone at Village Feast in Souris agrees, it’s the best chowder they’ve ever had. And those mashed potatoes! So light, so redolent of sweet Island butter. In the middle of a hurricane, people came together to make this great food—the beef and the lobster and the shortcake—and they

As Old as PEI

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

The young man’s clear gaze focuses just behind us. His voice is clear, too, as he sings about a farm lost to…what? The vagaries of weather, the banks? In the end, it’s all the same. Behind him, photos—not of a graceful, dilapidated farmhouse, but inside, where the torn sofa and unshuttered windows speak only of disappointment. It is a story as old as PEI. And here, at a play

Coffee News

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

Minh Hoang Truong pours hot water into a small metal cylinder that sits on a drinking glass. Inside the cylinder is finely ground coffee. I lift the lid of the cylinder, stick my nose in and smell strong coffee and, although there’s none in it, chocolate. The coffee drips slowly onto a layer of sweetened condensed milk.

When the coffee has dripped through, I remove the

Road Food

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

I am eating lunch in a parking lot and I don’t mind a bit. Hush puppy? Po’boy? Food truck? It sounds like road food. So if I’m sitting by the road, so much the better. A po’boy? It’s a sandwich. And this one has beef and lettuce and pickles and some kind of sauce that I am not ashamed to lick right off the plate. I take a swig of iced tea. Sure, that’s Ellen’s Creek right there. But it

Sunday Morning

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

The Emeralds are belting out a tune at the Trailside’s gospel brunch. They are finding things in this song even the writer didn’t imagine. The audience is rapt; we shiver a little. A pretty waitress offers eggs, the cook steps out of the kitchen for a minute to savour the music.

Whatever you seek on Sunday morning, be it respite, be it redemption, you’ll find it here. I

Yummy Naan Bakery does wonders with saffron

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

The first thing you notice when you enter the Yummy Naan Bakery is the bright yellow. It’s everywhere, as befits a bakery that knows a thing or two about saffron. You’ll be offered a cup of saffron juice, a bright yellow drink that is sweet and tastes exactly like a morning in June.

If you’re there on a Monday, Wednesday or F

If Not for an Artist

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

This crazy art show is just an illusion. The wings of the Sternocera Aequisignata beetle seem to be green or, in a certain light, blue. And yet—they’re actually just tiny cells that reflect the light, a trick of the eye. They aren’t really art, either. And yet Matt Bowness has made them into art—clothing, sculpture, jewelry—into things we don’t suppose an insect’s wing should be. No
