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!
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.
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.
Thanksgiving is often a time where friends and family get together to share good food and lively conversations, and to be thankful. Thanksgiving dinner does not need to be stressful (as far as the food is concerned). Choose simple recipes and add pizzazz to them by adding ingredients that enhance flavour.
Last year we visited Nova Scotia, and we brought back some treats for the shop. At the Dutchman’s Farm we thought of our Cheese Club Members and all the cheese lovers we knew back home.
