Fire roasted tomatoes at a reasonable price?

I buy them at SaveOn, Semihamoo Mall South Surrey. They are in the Mexican section....called Pastene Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes...398ml.
Can't remember the price but they must have been reasonable or woudn't have purchased them.

McCormick Mapleine Crescent Brand

I have used this product for many years to make syrup for pancakes and waffles. It has literally disappeared from all the grocers shelves.
It is available online from Amazon.com but not Amazon.ca.
Has anyone ever used it and is still purchasing it on the lower mainland?
Thanks

Real Scottish smoked kippers?

I don't think you will ever find the kippers you are talking about in B.C. I know exactly and have enjoyed the big fat ones while in Scotlland. The frozen whole kippers that Aberdeen Neptune produce are head on..split to lay flat..bone in and are in a 335gr green box with a picture of kippers on the front of it. They are the closest thing that I can find to the real ones and we have enjoyed them for a few years.

Real Scottish smoked kippers?

Just curious did you purchase the large smoked kippers at the Celtic Treasure Chest and were they Neptune whole kippers in a green box?

Excelentes tortillas ..... from Manitoba ?!?

Found La Cocina today at Buy Low Foods on Johnston Rd
in South Surrey. I agree they are the best! Super thin and not too salty.

Fish sauce

Our favourite is Viet Hu'o'ng Three Crab Fish Sauce. It has a picture of three crabs on the label...a little more expensive but just the right amount of fish/salty flavour.

Knife for cutting raw chicken?

An excellent knife for using with raw chicken is Victorinox Fibrox Flexible Blade Boning Knife 6". I have one and it is great to cut through the leg and thigh of chicken and also trimming the breast meat from the bone. I highly recommend it.

Looking for dried Limes on Vancouver Island

There is a Mediterranean Deli on Douglas Street just north of Bay Street in Victoria that used to carry a big glass container full of dried limes.

Vij's New Restaurant

This is an article in the local Peace Arch News this week:

"The night also served as an introduction to Vij for those who had not attended one of his cooking classes locally at Choices Market. The world-renowned chef plans to open his third restaurant, My Shanti, in Morgan Crossing, on the heels of relocating his production facility for his take-home food products to Surrey in 2011."

Frozen King Crab Legs

I normally purchase the frozen Alaskan King Crab Legs to make my yearly Crab Bisque for New Years Eve.
A few of the supermarkets are now selling only the Legs that are a product of Russia.
Has anyone tried them and what is the quality of them compared to the Alaskan Legs?
Thanks

Winnipeg Town & Country Cheesecake

Does anyone have a recipe for the Town & Country Cheesecake circa 1958/60 that was so
popular at that time?
My husband is celebrating his 80th birthday soon and I want to make him one for the big day...
he used to devour numerous pieces when we were having dinner at our favourite spot
The Town & Country.

Thanks in advance,

Looking for whole smoked kippers on Van. Is.

Thrifty's used to carry them in their freezer and also Quality Foods in Nanaimo. I would
suggest calling both to see if they still have them in stock.
Good luck

Best BC cookbooks

I thoroughly agree with you yaneidi regarding Karen Barnaby's "Pacific Passions Cookbook" and also her "Screemingly Good Food" that I use regularly. Her recipe for "Chicken Steamed with Ginger and Sherry" is super! I have made this healthy and tasty chicken recipe at least two
a dozen times....there is nothing more satisfying than "steamed chicken and rice".

Breville BOV650XL Toaster Oven

I am in the market for a a new toaster oven and have been reading positive reports
on the Breville BOV650XL because it is a smaller version of the 800 series and will
fit under the kitchen cupboards. A supplier is electronicsforless.ca and being from
the west coast am unfamiliar with this supplier. Can anyone confirm they are
a reliable supplier...thanks in advance.
