A weekly roundup of tasty tidbits for your entertainment!
CBC featured this bit on Newfoundland’s Tiniest Pub–and nope, it’s not on George Street.
If you want to tickle your brain cells instead of your taste buds, there are great food-related quizzes over at Sporcle. Everything from Shakespeare’s Kitchen Quiz to Food in Song Lyrics to Foods That Are Red. Go have a look, but take a snack, you might be there awhile.
And the drink of the day, compliments of Marylou Hoffman Zimmerman. Marylou is a Facebook friend of mine who adores all things food, and has Newfoundland dogs that sniff out truffles for her in the spring, which I think is pretty amazing.
Elderflower Sipper: St. Germaine, homemade rose water, vodka, hibiscus lavender syrup and club soda make up her version of this summer sparkly cocktail.
Speaking of drinks, looks like disaster will be averted, as HuffPo reports there may not be a shortage of Prosecco after all!
This sparkling Italian wine is my go-to for special occasion toasting and by happy accident, we were served Kir Royales made with prosecco on Saturday night (how’s that for a segue?)
After our drinks, we sat down this wonderful supper made by a hostess claiming to have simple tastes.
Every bite was perfect, and I can’t recall enjoying a dinner so much in a very long time. Of course, that may also have had a lot to do with the company. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again–it doesn’t matter so much what’s on the table as who’s around it. In this case, it was the best of both!
