  • The Mate's Tomato Tart

    A luncheon treat. Easy to prepare. Even the river barge's mate can do it.

  • 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.

  • Baked Prawns with Feta (Garides Saganaki)

    This traditional Greek recipe (Garides Saganaki) shows that Prawns, Feta and tomatoes are a great combination. It works beautifully, resulting in a harmonious balance of flavors. Though it can be made year round with canned tomatoes, it is sensational with fresh sweet ripe ones, so is best prepared in summer. Serve it as a main course with rice. white beans or potatoes, or in small portions as an appetizer, taverna-style.

  • Chicken Breasts Provencal

    Sweet onion and salty olives balance tart lemon in this practical, make-ahead chicken dish.
    For side dishes, caramelized fennel is de rigueur, as are potatoes or long-grained brown rice.

  • Italian White Bean Salad

    The dressing plays off against the beans very nicely in this salad. You can turn it into a whole meal by adding some tuna, prosciutto, or chicken tenders, and/or Romano cheese flakes. Variation: add some 1/4 inch zucchini cubes and small torn pieces of radicchio

  • Four Bean Salad

    A summer standard. Bean salad is one of those quintessential Canadian / American summer picnic foods

  • Burgers -Italian Style

    Gourmet burgers fer sure.

  • Summer Borscht

    A large recipe, for feeding the farm workers in summer.

  • Greek Lamb Kefta

    Go Greek on burger night! These Keftas are juicy, flavourful and fairly easy to make. Keftas are a meat mixture that includes herbs such as parsley and mint, and spices such as cumin and paprika.

  • Classic ratatouille

    This moreish Mediterranean-style vegetable stew is perfect for a super-healthy midweek supper.

  • Peperonata

    Peperonata is a very tasty dish, ideal as an accompaniment to meats. It is shown here as an accompaniment to Pork Spiedini. The ingredients can be found throughout the year so that one can enjoy it at room temperature on a hot summer day and piping hot in the winter.

  • Smorrebrod

    Rules for Eating Smørrebrød
    Here are some of the rules of eating smørrebrod. First, smørrebrod are not finger food. These are sandwiches that you eat with a knife and fork, thank you very much! (As strange as this sounds, it probably makes sense. If you tried to pick up one of these carefully constructed open-faced sandwiches, the toppings would likely spill down your shirt.) And, if you are sampling multiple smørrebrod, begin with fish, move on to meat and end with cheese.

    Just like hygge, smørrebrød is a Danish tradition that we Canadians might think about adopting. A simple smørrebrød or two is a delightful, out-of-the-ordinary lunch. And a lavish smørrebrød buffet is an easy and fun way to entertain at home. Lay out a selection of toppings and garnishes, gather your friends around the table and pass the bread!

  • Hollandaise Sauce

    Served with Eggs Benedict on family birthdays

  • Chicken with white wine and herb gravy

    This chicken with white wine and herb sauce is a delicious dish sure to please the whole family.

  • Pork Loin Spiedini with Pine Nut Soffritto

    A splendid Italian Secondo, served with Peperonata contorno. This is Grilled pork chunks, on a bed of arugula, garnished with a pine nut, raisin and olive oil soffritto. The Peperonata recipe can be found here
