Full of butter

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

She appeared from behind a wall in the little bakery. Her face was partially obscured by a bonnet but when she peeked out, she smiled. Her voice was soft – was that accent German? In front of her was an array of baking — bread, cookies, luscious pies displayed demurely in white boxes. She told us, when pressed, that her favourite was the chocolate squares. Did she

Indian buttered chicken rates high with foodies

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

Twenty years ago you’d be hard pressed to find curry of any kind on a PEI restaurant menu, let alone a restaurant with a variety of curries to choose from. For a very long time PEI’s cultural cuisine consisted of a few Chinese and Lebanese restaurants and little else. Cultural selections on local menus were present

A Tasting Menu

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

But it’s a good example of the

Just one

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

Say these words after me: salted, licorice, caramel. Say them long and slow, as if you were using them to seduce a lover. And that’s exactly what it’s like to eat a candy of the same name.

I began wandering around the city, tasting all the amazing food—or at least what my pocketbook would allow. I tried to follow chefs, emulating what they did. I tasted things I had never

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

Some folks like to say that one of the most appealing aspects of living in a northern climate is the change in seasons. I’ve probably said it myself, maybe as recently as yesterday. And when people say it, most imagine the majesty of the fall, the beautiful change in colours, the relief from the summer’s heat, and sweaters. Some
