We’re big fans of ShanDaph oysters and love to share them with our friends. We’ve gone through a number of boxes by now, so Tom is getting rather good at shucking and showing off his skills.
So we’re on our second year of participating in a CSA. We tried a smaller shop this time, Local Motive Farms in Coldstream, NS. They’ve repeatedly supplied us nice hauls. Lots of greens, turnips, garlic scapes and even horseradish!
How do you pair a seafood dish with the right wine? We got the scoop from sommelier Mark DeWolf.
Local chicken is getting expensive. Once an affordable staple, I fear our ubiquitous bird friend is becoming a delicacy when you go the eco-friendly route. In a year or two I’ll have to reserve dear old poulet for special occasions I do with lobsters, black truffles and caviar.
