What a good idea

Prince Edward Island Sea Salt Company

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

What are the chances that two guys would come up with the idea for a salt business at roughly the same time? Or let’s put it another way—why has it taken so long for anyone to refine the idea of harvesting some of the salt in all the water that surrounds us?

A couple of years ago, Darren Blanchard started a company called Black Whale, where

At the heart

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

If life had an official vegetable, I believe it should be the kohlrabi. When it is young, it is green and tender and vulnerable. Its skin has not hardened; it doesn’t take much to pierce its defenseless heart. But meet up with a kohlrabi in winter and you meet something else. The skin is tougher, the flesh gives a little more resistance. But you know what? It’s still delicious. It still has the same sweet heart.

Find of the month: Poutine at Papa Joe’s

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

For my money, good old reliable Papa Joe’s has one of the most interesting menus in town. Sure, you can get something expected and comforting. But you can also be surprised and delighted by my new favourite thing: bar clams and chips.

This is PEI’s answer to poutine. Do not mistake this for fried clams; it’s entirely different. The clams are like they would be for chowder

Route 145 Bar and Grill in Bloomfield

Way Up West
by Jan Cox

Recognizing a need in West Prince for a bar, family restaurant and some “hanging out” space, Dwayne and Crystal Costain took over an existing bar and have put their own distinct stamp on it. Route 145 Bar and Grill opened March 3, 2016. The determined couple knew folks needed a spot to sit down, have a good meal, have a drink, watch some

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

Something seems to be percolating in the east end of downtown Charlottetown. Formerly seen as a mecca for cruise shippers and other tourists, the place is starting to become an interesting place for residents as well.

To wit: the venerable Water Prince Corner Shop is staying open until December 15 this year—the theory

A good ribbing

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

One thing though. Sometimes they run out of ribs later in the evening so if anyone wants ribs it could be a gamble at that time.”

That was the text I received from my buddy Justin on a Wednesday afternoon early in November. Six of us were in Halifax for what was likely the biggest pool tournament in the history of Eastern Canada. There were 240 players and
