Jean talon market greehouse

I don't think JT has a greenhouse, it is probably Lufa as ios94 says. If you want a wonderful place for local fruits and veg it's Birri Brothers. They sell out of their elevator in the winter :).

Happy eating, Oana

Your favorite tea shops?

There is a new place that opened up in Mile End. It's called Spice Station. They are out of California and seem to be a massive hit there. I went in just to take a look but was in a rush and did not buy anything. They have an extensive selection of loose tea. They claim over 100. Here is their website: http://spicestationsilverlake.com/

Where to eat in Quebec close to Quebec city

In the Quebec city region and looking for a good place to eat that's fresh local homey and preferably seafood.

Any recommendations?

Ice House

I saw a chicken fried pizza there the other day. It was nuts.

Ice House

I love this place. The food is done well and consistent, the lemonade out of this world (especially when Adam makes it). I mean, everything is good. We've been going about once a week and are so happy we finally have a neighborhood joint like this. Long live.

Help! My tzatziki sucks!!

Add grey sea salt and white pepper. If you are using low fat yogurt, consider leaving the cucumber out so that it does not add more liquid. For essence and color you can just grate in some peel. You can also try making it with labneh. To die for darling. To die for. :)

Duck eggs what to do?

This sounds really unusual and quite awesome. I think I will make it. Meat or no meat in the sauce? Also is cream cheese the only one you can use? Thanks JB.

Are Olives dyed to look more appealing to the "Olive Bar" Consumer

Oh God, another thing that just can't be left alone. Why do we need unnatural red olives anyway? I had no idea olives were dyed.

Guillaume or Mamie Clafoutis

Good to know. I like Mamie Clafoutis but their attitude is awful. Guillaume, here I come.

Silly question about stock

Gelatinous is good. Very good. The flavour is enhanced as are the nutrients.

What do do with a bunch of fresh duck eggs?

Hi guys,

I just picked up 13 fresh duck eggs from the market and want to make something for mothers day with them. I don't have a big sweet tooth and would love do do something savoury. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

where to draw the line on "authentic"?

Very well said. Especially the last point.

Can we talk about canned salmon?

Hi Ngal, You don't need to remove any of those things. Just chop everything together and use it the same as you always would. The canning process makes the tasty and bones edible and they are full of the best nutrients. It's really good, just give it a shot.

where to draw the line on "authentic"?

Authenticity to me applies in educational format as far as standards are concerned. I want to know the "original" and I would like it to be preserved because to me it is a part of history and culture. It's beautiful. I would like to know the significance, the climate, the technique, the how's and why's. On my plate I am happy with whatever is decicious.

How to eat carpaccio

I might like it :) Especially if it was followed by some ancient see-through sliver of cheddar which of course would have slight dropplets of the peppery olive oil :). lol. Eat what you like and how you like it.

I need a new salad dressing option!

Another make ahead breakfast plea...with more contraints

I would make a big creamy feta, dill, potato and lemon zest frittata. Wrap it in those crystal or gel cooler sheets. It will keep beautifully for a long time and you can reheat it in the toaster oven, cut into squares and wedges and enjoy. It will be great.

Soaking Nuts?

Soaking and removes toxins from skins. Because you use alot of nuts in butters amd milks the toxins can concentrate causing discomfirt in those who have sensitive digestive tracts. You obviousley don't :) so don't worry about it. I sometimes soak almonds and walnuts just because I like the consistency.
