  1. Hi Deryn, I'm here. I think this might be my first eG post since Steven passed. Guysborough County is the one corner of Nova Scotia I haven't explored. Each summer I almost go to the Stan Rogers Festival and that great gastropub. Buying seafood at the docks directly from the boats is common and legal - and Canso is one of the oldest fishing ports in North America.

    Moose (Merged topic)

    Ten pounds of ground moose I got last night from my hunter buddy. Tourtière tomorrow. The meat is lean and tough - lots of pork fat and spices will help.
  4. Swedish lumpfish caviar We buy lumpfish eggs and find them exquisite. Don't like the phony red colour.
  5. Thanks Kerry. When you have the ingredients, the people, a little time and a place like that. Perfect storm.

    Cook-Off 62: Squid, Calamari and Octopus

    Great idea for a Cook-Off, David. I live on a North Atlantic bay where squid are showing up in big numbers for the first time in a long time. Kids jig and catch them easily with barbless hooks. Count me in.

    Foods you just don't like

    I'm not fond of the anise/sambuca/kümmel/caraway/licourice family of flavours. I hope it's not genetic.

    Dinner! 2013 (Part 1)

    Percyn, lobster thermidor and marrow parsley salad will be my next surf'n'turf project.
  10. Local shrimp doesn't make the news in Halifax. Sad but true.
  11. Amazing food, thanks Beth. Cooking under the Southern Cross is on my list. "Planes, trains and automobiles'' is a beauty adverb.
  12. Two happy guys and a fish? Large water body, perciform cought with a hand line, volcanic-looking rocks. I have no idea.
  13. Great stuff you two. Will there be any wild game on the menu given the time of year? I didn't know Barrie had a Fran's Diner. I get the (original) banquet burger when we're downtown Toronto.

    The Wonders of Fresh Lamb

    That's the best way to buy lamb. $13/kg is the price here in Nova Scotia.

    Inspiring, thanks. Where did the offal go?
