Upstreet launches Day Drift Craft Soda

The New Creative
by Cassandra Bernard

There is a new craft drink product on the market and no, it’s not a craft beer this time. The new Day Drift Craft Soda line made a splash all across the Island this summer with its unique artisanal herb, fruit and botanical flavoured sodas.

With no other product like it on the market in PEI, the line of sodas has been a

In praise of late summer vegetables

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

I just realized I had gathered all the ingredients for ratatouille without even thinking about it. It’s not difficult at this time of year. You need eggplant, onions, red pepper, zucchini and tomatoes and they’re all in season right now. I have made ratatouille with other than fresh local vegetables because I craved it so, out of season. But here’s the point of this really

Glace de Goat

Glace de Goat
Chow

by Ann Thurlow

As I have mentioned before, a summer drive can take a person to some very good eating. It can also yield some lovely surprises, as was the case with a little meander down Portage Rd (between Oyster Bed Bridge and Brackley Beach). There in front of the Great Canadian Soap Company was a new (to me) sign advertising a café and, most intriguingly, goat ice cream.

The cafe is tucked

Stout-hearted

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

I know stout is a kind of beer, but I would call this ale stout, too. As in stout-hearted, as in a robust flavour that reminds a person of the Yorkshire dales and of kindly people in rough hewn sweaters. You know, the sort you can always lean on. And the fact this ale is called Do Good-er just seals the deal. It’s made by Upstreet, a company that has gone out of its

How I learned to cook: Jane Crawford

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Jane Crawford is the chef at both the Hopyard and the Sugar Skull Cantina.

“I grew up in Sault St. Marie. I had two summer jobs when I was young, one at my father’s orthodontist office and one at a resort on St. Joseph’s Island. I worked for a chef called Eric Nowak. He wasn’t like other chefs—the kind who are always throwing tantrums. He was always very calm and very

Find of the month: Butter Coffee

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

This has become a world full of coffee snobs and coffee aficionados and, even for the average coffee lover, that’s a good thing. You are more likely than ever before to get a deep, richly satisfying cup of coffee just about any places you go. Here’s a pro tip, though: if you want the very best coffee you can possibly imagine, go the Riverview Country Market and get a
