Stone soup

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

Here then a little ode to a meal I have not eaten but whose very idea fills me with delight. A church in Murray Harbour is offering a free supper to their neighbours once a month—not because people need the food but because they need each other. It is perfect. All the words: community, communion, communing. All are defined by the simple cheer of a church hall and a

Finding seasonal inspiration at the Kent Street Market

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

For me, there is nothing more Christmassy than food. You can take your fir trees, your candles in the window, your crowded shopping malls. Just give me something good to eat—a turkey dinner or a nibble of something savoury and I will feel as if the season is upon me. Eating good food and giving good food seem the very

The Summer Kitchen

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Over the past few years Charlottetown has been absolutely blessed with the type and variety of Asian foods that are available. Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, sushi…now you can add food from the Philippines to that mix.

The original owners of the Noodle House on Summer Street have taken over the kitchen again and, along with their signature fried noodles, they also

Kettle Black has a new morning menu

Chow
by Ann Thurlow 

I am a big fan of the Brighton Clover Farm, otherwise known as Norman’s. Norman is, of course, the longtime owner of the store and a man intensely interested in food, especially the cuisine of his beloved Lebanon.

A few years ago, I stopped in early one morning and found Norman about to have his breakfast. Here’s what was on the plate:

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague 

Foodies are often the first to benefit from an influx of immigrants in a given jurisdiction. As the number of immigrants in a given area increases so does the number of restaurants, and the variety of food choices available. It’s happening right now in downtown Charlottetown. Off the top of my head I can think of seven new restaurants that have opened in

How I learned to cook: Maxine Delaney

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Chef, restaurant owner, caterer, creative culinary spirit, Maxine Delaney’s name is associated on PEI with wonderful food.

“I grew up on a farm in Alberta. My dad had a lot of heavy equipment and he got a contract to clear some bush up north. He took a crew up and I decided to go along. When we first got there, the camp cook went into town for supplies and just never came

Find of the month: Papia Papa

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

This one is strictly for meat lovers—the sort who are not averse to a bit of fat running down their chin. Papia Papa make a chorizo sausage that pushes its way to the front of the line. It is rich, meaty and dense and full of enticing, flavor carrying fat.

I first had them barbequed but they are also good just cooked on the stove. You can buy them in the frozen food

For grown-ups

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

When your name sounds like a mean old lady, you’ve already got one strike against you. Parsnip. The perfect word for something with warts and pasty yellow skin.

But ignore all that. A roasted parsnip is a smooth and delicate thing. Sweet, but with an enticing bitterness behind. Like coffee and dark chocolate, this is food for grown-ups. You can mix them with carrots if
