The challenge of Burger Love

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

Another Burger Love has come and gone. The 2017 edition featured a whopping 84 burgers at restaurants across the Island. It was a behemoth.

How to be a farmer in your own dining room

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

There’s something very hopeful about a tray of fresh greens growing by the window. Especially if it’s the winter; most especially if you can eat the greens just a few days after you plant them. They are microgreens—little shoots that taste like the very essence of vegetables. This week it’s spicy cress, next week it might be kaiware

Local Food Heroes: Joe’s Mediterranean

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Fadi Malke carefully places a small glass of Arak on the table. “Drink it slowly,” he advices, “it’s very strong—50 per cent alcohol.” The drink tastes like licorice and is as strong as advertised. Fadi suggests having it with shanklish, a salad of cheese, tomatoes and spices. It seems an improbable combination—the tart salad with the sweet drink. But Fadi says it’s what

Early bread

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

At five in the morning, it’s tempting to go back to sleep and I do. But somewhere another woman is drowsily turning on lights and hauling out mixing bowls. I imagine her name is Sarah. In my mind’s eye, I see her in a big white apron, kneading shortening into flour, performing that strange alchemy we call baking. In a few hours, I’ll go to Kettle Black for a scone and

Local Food Heroes: Hopyard

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Mike Ross and Jane Crawford finish each other’s sentences like an old married couple. They’re both intense, opinionated and determined; it’s easy to see how, when they met, they decided to work together. She ran the kitchen at the Red Water Grill, he worked at the PEI Brewing Company. Both had left busy careers in restaurants in Canada and the US for what they hoped would
