The Summer Kitchen

Submitted by Ann Thurlow

Over the past few years Charlottetown has been absolutely blessed with the type and variety of Asian foods that are available. Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Chinese, sushi…now you can add food from the Philippines to that mix.

Chow
by Ann Thurlow 

I am a big fan of the Brighton Clover Farm, otherwise known as Norman’s. Norman is, of course, the longtime owner of the store and a man intensely interested in food, especially the cuisine of his beloved Lebanon.

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

When your name sounds like a mean old lady, you’ve already got one strike against you. Parsnip. The perfect word for something with warts and pasty yellow skin.

But ignore all that. A roasted parsnip is a smooth and delicate thing. Sweet, but with an enticing bitterness behind. Like coffee and dark chocolate, this is food for grown-ups. You can mix them with carrots if
