Bangers and mash

A filling Island favourite at The Churchill Arms

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

To say it’s been a corker of a summer would be a massive understatement. From the beginning of July until the middle of August we had rain three times during daylight hours. Twice it came down in sheets for an hour or two, and only once did it rain steadily all day. The rest was beautiful sunshine. On that solitary

Upstreet launches Day Drift Craft Soda

The New Creative
by Cassandra Bernard

There is a new craft drink product on the market and no, it’s not a craft beer this time. The new Day Drift Craft Soda line made a splash all across the Island this summer with its unique artisanal herb, fruit and botanical flavoured sodas.

With no other product like it on the market in PEI, the line of sodas has been a

In praise of late summer vegetables

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

I just realized I had gathered all the ingredients for ratatouille without even thinking about it. It’s not difficult at this time of year. You need eggplant, onions, red pepper, zucchini and tomatoes and they’re all in season right now. I have made ratatouille with other than fresh local vegetables because I craved it so, out of season. But here’s the point of this really

Glace de Goat

Glace de Goat
Chow

by Ann Thurlow

As I have mentioned before, a summer drive can take a person to some very good eating. It can also yield some lovely surprises, as was the case with a little meander down Portage Rd (between Oyster Bed Bridge and Brackley Beach). There in front of the Great Canadian Soap Company was a new (to me) sign advertising a café and, most intriguingly, goat ice cream.

The cafe is tucked

Stout-hearted

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

I know stout is a kind of beer, but I would call this ale stout, too. As in stout-hearted, as in a robust flavour that reminds a person of the Yorkshire dales and of kindly people in rough hewn sweaters. You know, the sort you can always lean on. And the fact this ale is called Do Good-er just seals the deal. It’s made by Upstreet, a company that has gone out of its
