Presenting Jambel Cuisine

almonte-holiday-night-market-2018-wideIn preparation for our Holiday Night Market this Thursday, November 15, we asked the folks of Jambel Cuisine to be part of the party.  They will be giving out samples of jerk chicken made with their sauce and, you can even dip it in their aioli.  Here’s how we got to know them.

Join us Thursday, Nov 15th for the Night Market

We’ll have another late evening on Mill Street next Thursday, when everyone is invited to come out and enjoy a festive atmosphere and start preparing for the holidays.

Almonte will be bursting with holiday spirit and sparkle. Carollers, food offerings, wrapping stations, and shops chock full of inspiration to kick start your holiday gift giving.

The Holiday Night Market will run from 5pm to 9pm.

We’re delighted to have Jambel Cuisine in the store; they will serve delicious Jerk Chicken made with their own sauce, and offer tastings of their Jerk Aîoli. Familiar to regulars at the Carp Farmers’ Market, Jambel Cuisine can be followed on Facebook.

It will be a great evening to stock up on popular products at Pêches et Poivre, including these cocktail favourites:

These are fantastically delicious options for cocktails as well as for non-drinkers in the holiday season (and all year round).

We look forward to seeing you!

Raclette Season

Fall is upon us with bright leaves and cooler days that call for warm meals filled with scrumptious flavours.  It is when we start planning meals with family and friends in the warmth of our home.  We are all busy and an easy option, a raclette, is a fun stress-free meal to share that can create memorable gatherings.  There is no cooking in advance – except to boil some potatoes – and the preparation is limited to chopping up a few vegetables and plating up the cheese.  What could be easier!

October 2018 Cheese Club

 This month we are featuring 2 cheeses from la Fromagerie Montebello.  I had a family gathering in the Montebello area, and Sandra and I thought we had to get these two wonderful and flavourful cheeses back to you again.  We hope you, like us, will enjoy these beauties.  To compliment, we chose a hard cheese from Kaiser, the Miranda.

This Is One Great Garlic Crusher

The Garlic Rocker.  That is what this revolutionary new garlic tool made by Joseph Joseph is called.  I like cooking with garlic, and now, I like cooking with garlic even more!  It was love at first sight when Tim, our Danesco and Joseph Joseph rep. was showing us around his booth at last winter’s trade show.
