Craft Beer Review: Schneider Weisse Mein Nelson Sauvin

by Joe Wiebe 08.17.2013

Schneider Weisse is Germany’s oldest wheat beer brewery, dating back to 1872. Prior to that, the Bavarian royal family held the exclusive rights to brew wheat beer, but when King Ludwig II decided to get out of the business, Georg Schneider bought the royal brewery. The company has stayed in the Schneider family ever since […]

Farmers Apprentice – I’ve Got a Peaceful Easy Feeling

by Canucklehead 08.02.2013

Vancouver always gets put down for being too pretty, for resting on our laurels, and not having any ambition. I think the rest of Canada sees this city as the Millenial of the family, young and full of promise – but more concerned about bike lanes and trees than getting a desk job. But this […]

Ice cream maven Autumn Maxwell of Cold Comfort creates some fine, and astonishing, flavours served up in pints […]

Top Chef Edward Lee – Smoke and Pickles (Not Mirrors) *Prize at the bottom of the box

by Canucklehead 07.25.2013

Okay – let’s admit it – we all watch Top Chef. Even if we can’t make our way through every episode, we keep up with who got cut and who made it through. It’s always intriguing to me – why would anyone put themselves through the craziness of the challenges? I suppose some do it […]

Maenam – James Beard Dinner Redux

by Canucklehead 07.11.2013

I needed a breather. Even though I exist on the outer periphery of the whole food media thing – it amazes me how short the news cycles have become. Instant Yelp reviews, gossip at the speed of light, everyone aiming for insider information. And with Eater now hiring for Vancouver correspondents, things are only going […]

Time Estate Winery Unveiled by BC Wine Pioneer Harry McWatters

by Tim Pawsey 06.24.2013

I never thought I’d use Harry McWatters’ name in the same sentence as Jim Croce’s.  But there I was, walking home from the official launch of the BC pioneer’s new winery, Time Estate Winery, quietly humming to myself Time in a Bottle! Harry and I have shared more than a few meals over the years. And […]

Bestie – People Let Me Tell ‘Bout My Best Friend

by Canucklehead 06.17.2013

When I was a kid, I LOVED the show, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father. Not only was I intrigued with the idea that your father could be your friend, but that there was such a thing as a ‘Best’ friend. Asian families tend to be quite clannish and closed to the outside world, so my […]

The Weekend Cook – The Way of Sui Yuk

by Canucklehead 06.10.2013

Chinese people love pork. I mean, REALLY love it. Pork shows up in so many dishes, I genuinely cannot imagine what Kosher Chinese food would be like. Perhaps only the Italians come close to exalting the pig as much. In fact, my grandmother would substitute Italian proscuitto for more difficult to find Yunan ham in […]

The Latest News from the Capital

by Shelora Sheldan 06.03.2013

Let’s dig right in, shall we? Two new food trucks have hit the streets of Victoria. First, fans of chef Naotatsu Ito’s Japanese cooking are thrilled that he is back at the stove, this time cooking out of a shiny new kitchen on wheels. Daidoco appears at the Saturday-only Moss St. Market, with a menu […]
