To Portugal With Sardines
Posted
Sardines are one of those dishes I think about every couple of months. Lets be clear, I’m not talking about canned sardines (which can actually be pretty good), I’m talking about those big beautiful sardines you see being roasted atop hot charcoal. I blame the endless supply of travel...

Farmhouse Culture Gut Shot

Anyone out there digging the world of gut health and probiotics? In the last few years I’ve started to really get on the train and I blame Dr. Rhonda Patrick for this. The research and knowledge she has produced or shared is astounding. I’m telling you, there are  serious benefits to ...

Stinky Cheese & Pear Salad
Posted
Seriously, this salad. You should make it. It’s a beautiful combination of textures and flavours, with a touch of luxury. Stopped by the Strathcona Market on Saturday to grab some ingredients for a dinner party salad that I was bringing. Was initially thinking about some kind of corn salad,...
