A little late getting this to you… but I’ve got a good excuse! Tomorrow you can stop by the Ottawa Localvore Fair and see me! I will be there with all kinds of herb and spice goodness. Check out the poster below. But first – our culinary words this week!

Bonbon – a candy with chocolate or fondant coating and a fondant center that sometimes contains fruit or nuts.

Chervil – an aromatic Old World herb of the parsley family used for garnish and flavour.

Devil’s Food Cake – a rich but lightly textured dark chocolate cake named for its colour contrast with an angel’s food cake.

Foam – a mass of small bubbles formed in or on a liquid. In cooking this can be created by agitation, fermentation or heating.

Huevos Rancheros – a Mexican/Latin American dish of fried, poached or scrambled eggs served with tomato salsa, chili, tortillas, cheese, refried beans and sour cream.

Kipper – a salted, dried and smoked herring or salmon.

Romanoff – describes fruit, often strawberries, macerated in liqueur and topped with whipped cream.




Hope you can make it out tomorrow!!
