Eat! Vancouver’s Roundup. New foods to watch out for in the next few months in your local groceries and specialty food stores.
It was busy as usual this weekend. This year’s Eat Vancouver didn’t leave any hungry attendee unfed. From cheese, soups, noodles, maple candy salmon, spices, to chocolates.
I was lucky enough to participate in a culinary popup class by Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts. For around $20 you get a hands-on cooking class that was entertaining, educational and filling. We made marsala spice from scratch and for brunch, stuffed brioche and, hollandaise sauce.
Hello Macarons! Gluten free macarons by Kitchening Co. Carly Wintschel, owner was on hand to answer any questions and pose for pictures.
Everything is made from scratch including the caramel in the salted caramel macarons. You can pick them up at your local Urban Fare.
L.B. EMPORIUM, specializes in creative infused salts. The aromas were just amazing. My favorite was the Hibiscus, a purple tart flower salt infusion. You will be able to buy them online next month.
Cheese from Switzerland – Tête de Moine, Bellelay cheese is a semi-hard, cheese with a silky body which easily melts in your mouth. It was almost too pretty to eat, alas my stomach won.
It was definitely one of my favorites at Eat Vancouver. You can buy it at A. Bosa & Co. and Les amis du Fromage.
Giant, ooeey-goooey marshmallows from Magpie’s Marshmallows were sweet. Magpie’s Marshmallows is based in Agassiz, BC and they are working on getting their products in local groceries in Vancouver.
Boring Porridge, a natural, Gluten Free instantly-ready porridge. The coconut breeze was my favorite. Jesse was a whiz.
Finally we finished up with David Rocco, celebrity Italian chef.
