Where can i find Ginger Beer

Do not buy any of the crap from Super C, ALL of it is disgusting. Full of preservatives and sugar.

Where can i find Ginger Beer

Fever Tree is hardly what I would call ultra sweet. In fact it has about half the sugar of most ginger beer I've ever seen. And I have tried just about every type available on the island of Montreal as well as throughout the British Isles.

Black Cod Fish Cakes with Tartar Sauce

Black cod, aka sablefish is VERY expensive. I wouldn't waste it by turning it into burgers... This is almost as bad as making kobe beef burgers. Blasphemy!

I seriously doubt you would notice the difference if I made this with a medium to large size pumpkin...

Chole (Chana) Masala

Definitely with basmati rice only! Have had it with wild rice and it just isn't the same. This is really a prime example of eating like a "king" for very little $ :)

White Bean and Ham Soup

@tarantilla - you can easily skim fat off the surface of the broth between steps 2 and 3. There shouldn't be that much fat anyway if you trimmed and baked the ham properly.

The Night Marcher

Rum and ginger beer sounds interesting. Hot sauce and chartreuse NOT SO MUCH.

West Island Restaurants

OGGI is no longer good. Hasn't been for ages. Service and food quality took a nosedive over the last several years for some reason.
