ISO recs for dinner near Deerfoot Casino

Brewsters is always a safe choice. haven't heard anything good about San Remo (we live in Mckenzietowne)
Famosa Neapolitan Pizzaria is good as well.

4 carnivores and a vegetarian

thanks everyone. looks like I've made a list of places to try!

she doesn't each fish..vegetarian..but not vegan (oh.. and did I mention a fussy teenager) lol. She does want to go into culinary though so she needs to expand her horizons.

Most places are really good to us..but it does get tiresome if most of your options are always pasta!

"Live" sauerkraut in Calgary?

Best Italian food shop Calgary

I absolutely love the Italian Store/Scarpones! they have great food and fantastic service. the lasagne is additives.

smuckers goober yyc?

I was under the impression this was only avail in the USA. My friends son is obsessed with eating it and I know she stocks up when she goes to the states.

Where to find REAL pasilla chiles in YYC?

most grocery stores carry "chile ancho" as well as "chile Negro" which may be what you are looking for? the negro is a darker longer chile.
I often purchase fresh pasilla peppers at the Sobeys in Mckenzietowne.

Best market to buy produce for canning?

Don't forget Heritage Park - Fall Harvest Sale is September 10th and 11th !!!! Always great produce and deals. Proceeds go to the Childrens Hospital and Community Kitchen!

Gourmet & Organic Supermarkets in Calgary

Bite Groceteria in Inglewood is worth checking out for specialty items as well as i like Scarpones (great West Italian) 5130 Skyline Way Ne (they have prepared meals without additives, good deli selections)
if looking for reasonably priced organic produce...check out the calgary coops. they have organic specials on ever week :)

bhut jolokia peppers

some of the Sobeys stores carry dried bhut jolokia (ghost chile) which is product of India. I personally did not find the dried to be as hot as the fresh.
Fresh ghost chiles are difficult to get right now, only available out of Holland which have restrictions for importing into Canada.
There is a possibility of some California Hot House grown available mid to late August.

Frisee in Edmonton?

If you ask them at the Italian Centre (North or South) I am sure they can bring in Baby frisee bunches or a bulk chopped frisee. You could also try HW Central.
You could also ask Sobeys produce Managers at Jasper, Hollick Kenyon, Southbrook or St. Alberta and they can special order it as well.
(I work for a produce specialty company that ships to them once a week)

poblano peppers in calgary

most sobeys produce managers will stock them if you request it.

Swing top bottles?

a few years back i purchased a couple of boxes of the "grolsch " swing top beer bottles from the bottle depot. they only charge the deposit, so it was quite inexpensive.
I washed them and sanitized was fantastic.

where to find chiles

most Sobeys stores as well as Calgary Co-ops do carry the dried chiles....but yes some times are tucked away so you do need to ask.

bergamot are available only for a short time...jan- feb.
