Mancianti AffioratoOlive Oil

Tried that. They seemed to be semi tied to an olive oil supplier in California.

Mancianti AffioratoOlive Oil

I've been looking for this for ages and can't seem to locate it. It's from Umbria and fabulous

I've been to the usual suspects, Parthenon, Whole Foods, etc.

Any suggestions or even a mail order place in Canada. It's available in the States but nowhere I go and by the time you pay postage, not viable.

Any ideas?

Smoked Olives On Sale?

Bought some huge ones at Mediterranean Specialties on Commercial.

Before I saw them, though, I smoked my own with a wok and a rack bought at a thrift store and Gourmet Warehouse's wood chips.

Places around Dunsmuir and Hamilton

Any places around there that are reasonable? One of the members of our party is suggesting Moxies. All reviews make it sound horrib.e Same price point though

Finally got around to acting on this, Sam. Thank you! It's available under the name 'Happy Wine' in several gov't. stores in Richmond and I'm a happy girl for having found it!

Picarones in Vancouver

Went last week. Very pretty food. Couldn't taste the pumpkin in the doughnuts.

Better value than the much touted Burdock and Co.

Best breads in the Lower Mainland, 2013 version

Gesundheit Bakery does the Farmer's Market at Lonsdale Quay as well as lots of others. Good for all types of rye and does a nice soft pretzel.

ISO Chinese wine, particularly Osmanthus

I used to have something called Kinmokusei chu in Japan. It's a sweet floral osmanthus taste, flavour, what have you.

Has anyone seen it's ilk in Vancouver?

Slider buns - where ?

I posted a request for these back in June, 2010. Other than the usual suspects, I got suggestions of Stuart's Bakery in Grnville Island and Moore's in Kerrisdale. I ended up getting them at Stuart's.

A bunch of us are planning to go to go here.

Reading reviews I'm beginning to get cold feet. Anybody have any experience?

epazote in Vancouver?

Lowland Herb Farms at Trout Lake had it.

You're right about it being useless when dried.

ISO store selling pandan, tumeric and banana leaves

I don't know about fresh turmeric but I've had good luck with pandan there and I've seen banana leaves at Dong Thanh on Kingsway.

Using Gari (pink pickled sushi ginger)

Thanks very much for this.

Yes, of course, why not just stir fry with it? I must go boldly!

I like the draping over devilled egg too.

Wow, what a board!

I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to use up Gari in dishes other than sushi.

Pear Tree -anyone been lately?

Funny you should mention that.

I was just talking to a chef friend of mine and he says he sends everybody he knows there.

Not having been mysellf, couldn't say but it' sounds intriguing.

Taiwanese hot dogs with a rice 'bun'

To anyone who is interested

I e mailed this Formosa Reality Club. They said that to their knowledge they didn't know anyone else that was making them and that's why THEY made them.

They will keep me posted as to the next event.

God, the lengths we go to get food we like!

Thanks grayelf.

I was looking at that. I wonder if they'd make me one without the attendant yakiniku.

Thanks kinnickinnik.

I saw that too but it turns out they are an organization that does various events and maybe serves food at them.

I was looking more for a stall or restaurant.

Taiwanese hot dogs with a rice 'bun'

were had at the Telus Taiwan Fest we had on Granville at the beginning of September.

I loved them and wonder if anybody knows where else I can get them.

Apparently they were at the Richmond Night Market also, so they must be available somewhere.
