Gluten-free injera - where to buy

I called the various retailers I could find on the Internet, and this is what I have learned.

Mulu Bakery - injera has wheat in it

Twins Teff Injera - injera has wheat in it. Order gluten-free with a couple days' notice

Freta Enjera has gluten-free in stock

Gluten-free injera - where to buy

Zemen Injera at 2048 Danforth Avenue. It has gluten in it. So, to me the better question is where I can buy gluten-free injera.

Well, I have called Zemen Injera, and the injera they sell is not gluten-free. So clearly we cannot assume this without asking. If you live in Toronto, perhaps you can share with me your source for take-home gluten-free injera. Thanks!

Gluten-free injera - where to buy

Well three plus days of fermentation (according to an Ethiopian cookbook I have) in my small home seem arduous enough. I have a broken leg, a preschooler, and a fairly crazy schedule. But thanks. Oh, and I have teff flour, that is not the problem.

With respect to fun, a friend of mine recently tried and ended up throwing the whole batch out after several days and opening up all her windows to remove the stench from her home. No doubt something went wrong, but I am just looking for something easy that I can buy from the store.

Thanks, but I already stated most injera in Toronto also has wheat in it. Which is why some Ethiopian restaurants (e.g. Nazareth) offer a gluten-free option. If you ask. Not sure what was unclear about my post. I am asking for gluten-free injera to take home from a store. Not gluten-free teff flour, as it is by definition gluten-free.

There's Zemen Injera at 2048 Danforth. Hmm. I admit to not knowing much about the state of injera in Toronto right now.

That said, I have read that most injera (at least in Toronto) has teff and wheat flour. I was contemplating trying to make my own, but it is an arduous process. Planning on hosting friends who don't eat gluten, so hoping someone knows something.

Viking Bakery - Woodbine & Danforth: Anyone been?

Here's an article about it. I haven't had a chance to go yet.

Loblaws sells ugly fruit at a discount to curb food waste

Actually, having bought a bag of apples, I didn't see any difference between the "ugly" ones and the more expensive pretty ones.

I bought them. They were Fuji apples, and they looked to be in perfect condition.

Polish bakery in Scarborough/East End Toronto?

You can buy them at Vienna Fine Foods on Birchmount. http://viennafinefoods.com

Internet search suggests some restaurants have it, but I'm wondering if there's somewhere to buy it in packages. Thanks!

Looking for dried red beans, ideally Camellia brand

Great! Thanks! Picked up some small red beans at No Frills, and will give them a try.

Hi! Do you know if/where these can be found in Toronto? Or closest source? Thanks!

The Old Toronto Restaurants you make the wishes for the comeback

I am pretty sure I ate there in 1981. Possible?

Vegan bakeries in Toronto

That's too bad. I've been maybe 30 times and have never seen that.

Am I detecting a pattern here?? - Ridiculous rating by Toronto Life reviewers on great restaurants

I have known James since the late 80s, and two other Toronto Life restaurant reviewers who worked around 1995, one of whom I dated. Never heard of two meals being paid for, or any stipulation on day of the week. Perhaps things changed soon after you left.

Let's hear who has the best onion rings in Toronto!

Popcorn? Hmmm. Need photo!

Unfortunately, there will always be that group. But you are appreciated by many!!!

Perhaps the best two to try are Bunner's and Tori's Bakeshop.

Even when James did reviews for Toronto Life, he wasn't their only reviewer. They have always had multiple reviewers. Dont know if it's still the case, but reviews used to be written based on one meal for two people. At least that's what the magazine covered. So, it's easy to see why a review can seem wrong to those who have had multiple experiences at a restaurant, know how to order the best the reataurant has to offer, etc. In addition to that, there is the extra issue of just how knowledgable the reviewer really is about food.

Steelite plates - where to find

Hi!
It seems like you really need to buy by the case if you want to keep costs down. I am putting the dishes on my Christmas list. It is an investment, for sure.

Sher-e-Punjab on Danforth - anyone?

Maybe if you guys got a group together, they'd make it especially for you!

roasting red peppers

I bought a bushel of shepherd peppers at Real Canadian Superstore for $19.

Those are some good-looking rings! Thanks.

Source for Macadamia nuts

Adonis has them in the staffed bulk nut section. Customers don't have access to the bins.

Depends on which research and what you want to prevent. Fat is a major culprit, and the only diet shown in studies published in peer-reviewed journals to prevent and reverse heart disease is a very low fat diet that also excludes animal protein of any sort. http://www.heartattackproof.com/

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - April to June

You're welcome! Just wanted to also say, as a fan of the Bonne Maman jam, that the Kirkland organic strawberry spread may be worth trying! We love it.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - April to June

Yes.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - April to June

Yes, but they put it in the right aisle when you face the back of the store. It's just there in huge quantity in the aisle near the freezers. I found my espresso beans there too, and not on sale. So don't understand the logic in moving staple items away from where people expect them to be, as I almost left the store sans espresso, but luckily discovered it before heading out.

Question about Rowe Farms

I wasn't talking about Holt's. There are plenty of businesses in Toronto where employees can't afford to shop/eat. I wonder where Cumbrae's cleaners buy their meat... or how many times the dishwashers at Canoe have taken their family to eat at the restaurant, or how often the front desk staff at The Templar Hotel rent a room there. There are plenty of private school teachers who are in no position to enrol their children in their employer school.

I was talking about the Oakley store. I knew someone who worked there for minimum wage or slightly above - and a small discount on store product. And there are plenty of $200 plus sunglasses there.
