ISO Fanny Bay oysters in Courtenay Comox

Passing through on the way to a kayaking trip. I know that the Fanny Bay shop isn't far away, but does anyone know where I can get them in town either shucked at a store or at a resto? Thanks!

ISO Nayonnaise

I love this lower calorie soy mayonnaise-like product. Fiesta Farms used to carry it, and it no longer does. Whole Foods doesn't have it. Has anyone seen it around lately? Would love to hear. Thanks!

Where to buy Ghirardelli product

I think I've seen it in the basement place (with all the bulk food at the back of St Lawrence Market, against the back wall on top of the bins

ISO inexpensive best good food for first trip to Vegas

Thanks a lot, all, but I won't know where I'm staying until about a week before leaving. We're not into big fancy meals. I'll check back in with this board when I know where I'm staying in about a month! Thanks a million!

Nice bistro or Italian resto in Vaughan, elder friendly!

An elderly friend of mine is coming in from NYC for a family event, and I'm going to take her to dinner near her hotel in Vaughn the night before. She uses a walker so a resto with few or no stairs and a bathroom on the main floor would be best. Good food and pleasant ambiance of course! Many thanks!

Pet-friendly Key West?

I am going to Key West in early April and bringing my puppy. I'd like to find take-out so I can sit with her on a bench somewhere and watch the world go by. Any suggestions? Are there dog-friendly outdoor patios? My dog is well behaved.

Casual client dinner - Monday night Toronto

Tutti Matti

Bent at 777 Dundas West ready to open?

This is Susur Lee's son's place. Does anyone know when it's going to open? I went by this afternoon, and the tables were set, and guys were folding napkins. I also spotted a sake menu! Love to hear more if chowies have some inside info!

ISO Thomy, Swiss tomato paste in a tube

Does anyone know where to find this amazing product? I'm looking for the large-size tube of pure tomato paste. The packaging is distinctive: the cap is red with daisy petals. Not interested in the many Italian varieties. It's THOMY or bust! Anyone know where to find it in Toronto?

Will rugelach be okay if i make them the day before the party? Any thoughts? Thanks!

ISO organic goat meat

I'm hosting an Indian feast, and would like to cook a goat curry. The recipe from Vij's first cookbook calls for a leg. I can ask at the Wealthy Butcher, but does anyone have any other ideas?

What kind of potato for latkes? What kind of oil?

I heard it said that if you use Yukon Golds, you don't have to peel the potatoes. Does anyone have experience making latkes with unpeeled Yukon Golds? If not, what kind of potatoe do you use? Epicurious says peeled russets. Any other suggestions? And for frying, is sunflower the best kind of vegetable oil to use? Would love to hear your thoughts. And Chappy Chanukah!
