Chicken recipe for cold nights in the Valley

Thai Green Curry Paste Chicken

It is cold out there in Almonte! What better way to warm up then to cook a hot spicyish meal. That is exactly what we did last night!

We had chicken, we had deSiam’s Thai Green Curry Paste, we had coconut milk and we had vegetables. We were all set to cook a delicious and easy to make meal!

Crazy 4 Chocolate Truffles

Pêches & Poivre is very pleased to welcome the wonderful chocolate truffles from Crazy 4 Chocolate.

Sue uses only high quality ingredients and makes her chocolate in small batches so the truffles are fresh when you buy them.

Not only is she creating her artisan Belgian chocolate truffles right here in Almonte, but she has also created a trio of truffles reflecting the region. The ‘Almonte Trio’ includes one ‘Mississippi Mills Martini’, one ‘Pêches & Poivre’ and one ‘Naismitih’. How cool (and delicious) is this?

We are pleased, but not surprised, to find two of the cheese artisans, whose cheeses we have in our shop, in the finalists of the Canadian Cheese Awards for the best artisan cheeses made in Canada.  This is the biggest cheese competition in Canada with 76 producers from Newfoundland to British Columbia submitting 291 cheeses for judging.  The winners will be revealed during the awards ceremony, taking place in Toronto on April 7, 2014.

We want to wish the best to Maple Dale Cheese, finalist in the Mild/Medium Cheddar category (aged up to 9 months), for their Medium White Cheddar, and, for their 5 Year Old White Cheddar in the Aged Cheddar category (aged 4 years and more).  Good luck also to Glengarry Fine Cheese, finalist in the Washed Rind category for their most recent creation, ‘Nevis’.
