Summer lunch

The Cove Journal
by JoDee Samuelson

The crows wake me before the sun comes up. Are there more crows this year or are they just noisier? Might as well accept the fact that I won’t go back to sleep; and that’s a good thing, for today our friend Marjorie is coming to lunch.

I told Marjorie that I would make a quiche: so simple, no trouble. Actually quiche is a fair bit of trouble, but it doesn’t

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

Jordan Liantzakis just did something no one in PEI has done for forty years. He got a license to operate a slaughterhouse. It’s telling that it’s been that long—food production has grown from something done on family farms to something done by large companies. Jordan wants to change that, at least in his neck of the woods.

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

Happy motoring

Local Food Heroes
by Ann Thurlow

One of the great things about an Island summer is the chance to get out on the roads and visit some of the many great eating places (as my grandfather used to call them). Some are year ’round, others are summer friends. Here’s some that I love, each for its own reason—all for good food.

The Yellow House—This is the second year for this fun and delicious place in

How I learned to cook: Jaime Zehr

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Jaime Zehr is the co-owner and chef at the Island Stone Pub in Kensington.

“I grew up on a mixed farm in southwestern Ontario. What we grew we ate and what we ate we grew. Our whole lives revolved around food; it was not unusual to be eating one meal and talking about the nest one. We were almost self-sufficient and I was taught to treat all the food we grew with respect.
