Though Scandinavian cuisine has gotten a turn-of-the-century facelift through the Michelin-starred restaurant, Noma, there's really nothing better on a cold, snowy day than a cozy, hearty chowder loaded with potatoes and tender fish. In Nordic countries, where salmon, cod, crab, and potatoes are staples, hearty soups and creamy stews using local ingredients are just as common as meticulously-plated elk medallions and sliced truffles.  Continue Reading

Insalata Caprese

The cook's main responsibility is to shop wisely. This salad stands or falls on the quality of the ingredients.
The tomatoes should be small heirlooms if they are in season, or otherwise, B.C. cocktail tomatoes on the vine.
The preferred cheese is Burrata, and the olive oil should be the higher quality kind, intended for drizzling.

Steak Diane

An old time Shaw family favourite.
The earliest mention of Steak Diane by that name is in Australia in 1940, when it was mentioned in an article about the Sydney restaurant Romano's as their signature dish. Romano's maître d'hôtel Tony Clerici said he invented it at his Mayfair (London) restaurant Tony's Grill in 1938 and named it in honor of Lady Diana Cooper.

Creamy Cucumber Salad

You may also add a few very thin onion slices

Creamy Chicken Marsala with Prosciutto

A bit of prosciutto adds savory flavor to this sauce. Serve this quick-cooking dish with whole-wheat angel hair pasta.

Pizza - Italian Sausage and Arugula

Thin crust, Naples style pizza

Provencal Penne

The addition of orange zest and fennel brings this pasta out of the ordinary.

Caprese Crostininis

An Italian Flag Crostini, Red tomatoes, Green Pesto and White Bocconcini

Roasted Root Vegetables (chunky)

A delicious side dish. The veggies are topped with sage oil and leaves for earthy flavour.

Pan seared Salmon with Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Sauce

Melt-in-your-mouth pan-seared salmon is covered in a flavorful roasted red pepper sauce for a quick, flavor-packed dinner! Serve it over rice or noodles or by itself.

Salmon with Mango Salsa

Salmon is good for us. It is low in saturated fat, is one of the best sources of vitamin B12, contains healthy omega fatty acids and is a good source of protein, too. It's also loaded with potassium and other nutrients, like vitamin D and iron. In this particular recipe, the salsa is bursting with antioxidants for a wonderfully healthy combination.
