Seriously. Best shawarma imho is from a tiny little spot on Main Street in Vancouver, BC called Mitra Canteen. The friendly dude always greets you with a "Hey guys!" and whips up the yummiest shawarma with homemade hummous and extra hot sauce (if that's your thing), and those yummy crispy burny crunchy chickeny bits that can't be beat. We haven't found any other spots locally that compare, this guy knows his shawarma!
The origin of the name Cullen Skink is a bit obscure except that Cullen is the name of a village on the north east coast of Scotland. Purists would say that you shouldn’t use just any smoked haddock, but rather “finan haddie”, which is haddock smoked over green wood and peat.
I started making Kimchi 6 years ago. Over this time I've tried dozens of recipes and slowly created what makes, in my household, the best kimchi. Frankesteined from at least 50 kimchi recipes, and using pear in substitute of sugar, this recipe has just the right amount of spice and is packed with flavor! We use it in everything and always have a batch in our fridge!

I have not yet traveled to Austria so this is my vision of this beautiful country in my dreams. It is inspired by my son's sweetheart who is a native Austrian. He is going there to spend the Christmas Season with her and her family. In preparation for his visit, her family will be creating some traditional Austrian recipes. These crepes, desserts and beverages represent just a few!
Bell peppers are the main ingredients of Peperonata.
This Mediterranean recipe is originally from the South of Italy. There are many variants of this recipe.
You can eat the Peperonata at any time during the year. It is tasty on toasted bread (bruschetta) or as a side dish with meatballs.
We had this beautifully rich cake every Christmas morning at my grandma’s house on the Canadian prairies. While she and my grandpa made a cozy life here in Winnipeg, Manitoba, she always longed for her hometown of Truro, Nova Scotia. This pound cake brims with ruby red glacé cherries and (a whole lotta) butter, giving it a delightful sunny yellow colour. From my research, it seems than in many places on the east coast of Canada, this type of white cherry cake often replaces the spicier, darker traditional fruitcake around Christmas time. Funnily enough, even though the recipe was from my grandma’s side of the family, every year my grandpa dutifully rolled up his sleeves and made it for us. Not sure if that was his love of baking or his love of her and wanting her to feel at home, though she was so far away from Truro. Maybe a bit of both ;)
This is the kind of recipe that uses what's left in the pantry at the end of the week to create a tasty dish. Most Italian kitchens have all these ingredients always at hand: olive oil, olives, garlic, capers, anchovies and tomatoes... There are many theories on the origins of the name of the dish, but as I remember, it's just a frugal way to make do with what is available! Global Cuisine
On a recent sugar-craving marathon, I recalled my breakfast and holiday memories in Vietnam of this fellow heart-warming dish - sweet sticky rice assorted in the vivid red of gac fruit, bathed in the tang of full-cream coconut milk, and marinated in granulated white sugar. Eat this alone, or as a combo with some pork cake, mung bean paste, or coconut shreds, all work!
Mushroom picking in the forest is a favorite outdoor activity in Poland. My grandmother and her sisters loved picking mushrooms here, too. I enjoy hunting for mushrooms but would love it even more if only I could teach my dogs to sniff out the mushrooms, ala truffle pigs. My aunt started making this recipe 30 or 40 years ago. I don't know where the recipe originated. If anyone recognizes it, please share the source!
Grandma frequently made kluski, but not often enough, according to the family! They wanted it for every meal, including Christmas. I used to make it while I was going to college, but I substituted bacon for the pork shoulder. That was when I learned, from my great-aunt, that bacon is cheating! Unfortunately, there are those in the family who haven't fallen for kluski's charms. My husband refers to it as "fish bait". Oh, well, more for me!
One of my favorite culinary experiences is dim sum: a Chinese tradition where bite sized dumplings, buns and other small dishes are constantly served in moving carts and eaten alongside a steady stream of hot tea.
The dishes are countless - ranging from soft steamed buns to dumplings, deep fried rolls and many more delightful dishes. It has a long history and has since evolved into a staple as the classic weekend brunch spot for Chinese families.
I remember going to dim sum with my family as a child and loving the classic dishes such as ha gao (shrimp dumlings) and xiu mai (pork dumplings) along with rice cakes and egg tarts. It was always a scrumptious time - a magical place where we were allowed to take bites of dessert in between every bite of "real food."
