What Recession?

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

On my regular Saturday morning trip to the grocery store a few weeks back I ran into Gordon Bailey. Gordon is one of the Island’s most popular chefs, and his restaurant, Lot 30 in Charlottetown, has developed quite a name for itself in less than a year of operation. Gordon had two large bags of tomatoes in his cart and he was elbow deep in the yellow peppers

Lebanese Levee

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

This year marked my second trip to a Charlottetown New Years event unsurpassed for its class, its attendance and its food. The event sees the highest number of impeccably dressed people in one room, at one time, of any annual event in the province. Hundreds and hundreds of people, from all walks of life, make the trip every year. And the food, the marvelous and

Give Me the Real Thing

Is The Noodle House Prince Edward Island’s most authentic Chinese restaurant?

Islanders love Chinese food. Take a walk down Queen Street at 2:30 on a Saturday morning and you’ll know what I mean. As soon as the Charlottetown bars close, or the Summerside bars for that matter, hundreds of late-night food seeking, salt-craving drunkards hit the streets, and at

Dining In

I'm Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

In these times of economic uncertainty, it's sometimes difficult to justify spending your hard earned money on dramatically marked up food. Let's face it, restaurant food is, on average, triple the cost of the same food bought at the grocery store and cooked at home. And with all the bleak news of recession, and depression, and the coming rapture, people are

Aunt Maud's Recipes

Anne 2008

by Nina Linton

Christmas conjures up scenes of crammed kitchens and over stuffed tables. The enduring tradition of Christmas dinner has been continued through time by countless women who have prepared savoury meals for their loved ones, and Lucy Maud Montgomery was no exception.

Renowned for her literary skills, Lucy Maud Montgomery also had a keen interest in fine foods and took great

Roving Feast


I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Each nominee for the Award and several special guest chefs, each with one of their producers in tow, are invited to prepare a signature dish, from Island ingredients.

This fall, I had the distinct pleasure of sitting on the selection committee for the Taste Our Island Award. The award is presented each spring by the ADAPT Council to an Island restaurant owner

Pearls of Wisdom

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

Let’s face it, it was a crappy summer for just about anyone who counts on summer business. For one, the weather was the pits; there was more rain than sunshine, and there were more book days than beach days. Not only that, but the tourists just didn’t seem to be around in their usual numbers, even though the PEI marketing machine went into overdrive to sell

A Place Downtown

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

It wasn’t that long ago that Fouad Haddad was toiling away, fixing and selling used computers, and renting DVDs to a handful customers at his Grafton Street hub, Variety Video. He’d been doing just that for at least fifteen years. However, deep down, Fouad wanted a change. He was tired of the daily grind, and he wanted to explore new avenues. So, he turned his

Two Sundays in a Row

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

Don’t get me wrong, I love Mount Stewart. Love might too strong a word, actually. I like Mount Stewart…about as much as like canned corn, which is a surprising amount. It straddles the East Hillsborough River, which is good, but the Legion is shut down, which is not. The gas station is handy by times, but the infamous mosquitoes are a pain. It’s a town of
