A Good Fit

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I called bingo for five years at the Royal Canadian Legion in Charlottetown. Under the tutelage of “Johnny Boy” Dunn I honed my skills and mastered the craft. But like many a talent, calling bingo lost its usefulness, and for many years it sat on the back burner waiting for a chance to shine again. Not too long ago the back burner got turned on, and I found

Ten Pounds of Tasty

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

Sometimes I can’t control my cravings. I ran into a fine example of this powerlessness not too long ago. After work on Friday I made my way over to Assumption Parish for their annual St. Patrick’s Day play. It was a great time, and as a bonus I got to see a friend who was home from Fredericton to see his mother perform. After the obligatory handshakes and

Consistent Winner

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I remember the day I met Peter Hyndman, the owner of The Merchantman Pub in Charlottetown. He had recently acquired a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label Blended Scotch Whiskey and I had recently acquired a seat at the bar in his pub.

The bottle wasn’t open yet so I asked if I could have a look. After a quick glance-over I handed the bottle back and asked how

Breakfast Salvation

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

It’s very fitting that hungover and hungry start with the same four letters. For many people the two go hand in hand. That’s not to say every time someone’s hungry they’re hungover. But the opposite can be true. Where there’s a headache, dehydration, general malaise and slightly faded memories of last night, there is often hunger. Not your typical hunger

Slugging It Out West

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

It takes a long time to get to Tyne Valley from Charlottetown at three pm on a Saturday afternoon. Especially when your Aunt’s cousins are celebrating their 25th anniversary, and the party hasn’t stopped since Friday night. I find my father at the farmhouse of Joe and Marion Gillis in Bayside, a scant ten minutes from our destination. I never knew oysters

A Tasty Beginning

I'm Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

Friday, November 14 my friend and I go to Off Broadway, where we are quickly greeted by the host. He shows us to our table, in Debbie's section, away from the kitchen. Richard MacEachern, makes his way past to fill our water and say hello. Great guy, great server as well. Then along comes Debbie. She greets us with a big smile. She looks radiant. I don't even

What's Cooking?

What's Cooking?

Why Not?

by Treva McNally

Is it just my imagination or have cooking lessons become the latest form of entertainment? Classes seem to be popping up everywhere, including the community rooms at SuperStore and Sobeys, at Community Schools and at the Uncommon Grocer, and there are probably more because I didn't look very hard to find those ones. Many classes are free, although several cost $5 and a

No Weird Ingredients

No Weird Ingredients
Nan Ferrier publishes a limited edition cook book with a difference

by Sue Gallant

Ever longed for a no-nonsense Canadian cookbook containing recipes void of those weird ingredients you can never find in stores? Just such a cookbook has recently been written and published on PEI. Supplies, however, are limited. The author wrote the book as a family heirloom and less than 50 copies remain. The

Flavour of the Month: Hot Peppers

It might still be cold outside, but the heat's turning up in the kitchen

by Bonnie Caldwell

Have you noticed those unusual-looking peppers in the produce section? Have you stared at them and wondered what should I do with them? They range in colour and size from green to red, small to large, pointed to round. But that's not all-look down the aisle and you see bags of dried chilies. Help, what's a
