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

Lifeblood

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

Some say it’s lobster they crave after a long winter. Others want only tart, pink rhubarb or something fresh and green. But, for me, the true taste of spring is maple syrup. It’s our very first clue that things are waking up; even before we’ve shaken off our winter doldrums, maple trees start producing sap. Bright days, cold nights, the warmth of a little fire—these are the ver

Sara and Sadat’s restaurant features Afghani specialties

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

It’s hard to find a minute to talk with Sara Sadat. Her new restaurant won’t open for a couple of hours and already she’s hard at work making gulab jamun—those delectable bits of deep fried custard so loved in India and Pakistan (and by me). The baklava, that lovely Middle Eastern treat, has already been made and its

Extra Measure

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

From the first roll of the timpani, something is up. The PEI Symphony is playing a concert in Zion Church, though really, what it feels like is the other way around. What it feels like is that the magnificent space is an instrument itself. The vaulted ceilings resonate as if the concert master has tuned them, too—as if the conductor has found some magical extra measure i

Your Very Best Friend

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

I am not ashamed to admit that I am the sort of girl who screams when she finds a locally grown eggplant in April. I am also willing to recognize that not everyone shares my joy. But to me, if you have an eggplant, you have a meal. Stew it, fry it, make yourself a fritter, the eggplant is always your very best friend. August used to be their season, now some greenhouse

Carl Lloyd’s new butcher shop is at your service

In Her Own Write
by Ann Thurlow

I’m at Lloyd Specialty Meats and there is a heated discussion going on about kielbassa. Is the sausage in the case Ukrainian or Polish, the customer wants to know. Is it smoked? What’s in it?

The customer is clearly knowledgeable, but he’s met his match in Carl Lloyd. Because if you called central casting and asked them t

Gash Darned

One Great Thing
by Ann Thurlow

My mittens are such a part of me that once, when I lost them, a stranger returned them. They’re handmade; they look like work socks. And when they grew a hole after years of wear, I was broken hearted. I took them to Northern Watters, where I bought them, looking for a replacement. Instead, they fixed them. As it turns out, you don’t have to throw things away just because the

Recipes for Every Body

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

When Karen Antolick ran a homemade lunch delivery service, she sent out a menu every week. Her food was delicious (or yummy, as she’d say). But that menu was the best part. There was always something for everyone—the carnivore, the vegan, the dieter. And when she got sick and had to sell her business, she sat down and wrote a cookbook. It’s called Recipes for Every Body; that
