Kolachy Takes Vancouver!

They showed it a second time on the late news.

Free Kolachys for life for nwyles !

You can't buy that kind of exposure. I think that with that kind of press, you could do Neil a favour and make a few Kolachys without green peppers.

I think my voice is much deeper in person - It sounded a little high a squeaky - perhaps they were running the tape extra fast. :biggrin:

Yes Neil (inserting Shill), why not ask Keith about the new Kolachy Cards that are going to be released in 2006! A cash card AND a rewards program...

Sometimes squeaky is good...

So I stayed up until midnight to watch you guys, then I couldn't sleep because it made me so friggin hungry! :blink:

I liked the cutaway shot of the kolachy and the pan of freshly roasted chicken breasts. When are you guys going to open up a shop on Mid Main so we don't have to trek downtown for them?

Also, you should open one up at the airport. They're so good to take on the airplane.

Just thought I'd give a heads up on the new feature kolachy for monday. Slow roasted new zealand leg of lamb in a traditional greek tomato sauce with cinnamon and whole pepper corns. I cooked the lamb for 8 hours so it's pretty tender.

Keith, if you're tooting your own horn, you forgot to mention how good this week's chicken curry special was... one of my new favourites! :smile:

If anyone is interested, there will be a short snipet on CTV Monday Jan. 9th on the 5:00 pm broadcast about the kolachy shop. Neil(aka nwyles) of Hamilton Street Grill fame was asked where he enjoys eating and the camera crew followed him to the kolachy shop (thanks Neil).  I don't know how it will come across as i wasn't as prepared as i would have liked but it should prove entertaining.

It was great!! Since I didn't have the opportunity to get on line until today, I thought there'd be a bit more about Neil on here. It was nice to see him interviewed, and I thought it was a great promo about the Vancouver food scene in general. The rest of the shows were great too, however, they seemed to be trying to be comparable to the Global shows quite a few weeks ago. Any comments about the other places commented on ?

I thought there would be a bit more on Neil as well !

They shot enough footage for a short film, but I ended up on the cutting room floor.

At least I get free Kolachy's for life now.

With the amount of footage they shot in the shop we could have been the news for monday. I however am glad that most of my stuff ended up on the cutting room floor. by the way Neil, did you notice that there are no green peppers in the new feature?

Whoa, OK, today I'm having a bacon dog kolachy and the fab pea soup (and wondering if pork and beans would work as a kolachy filling?) because they go together, but there is a Hawaiian Pizza feature kolachy this week that will cross my lips sometime very soon...

We had a breakfast feature that had pork and beans in it (english breakfast). Not one of my personal favorites but it sold like crazy and we had a lot of people asking for it to be brought back so watch for it soon.

Oh yeah, the tourtière will be part of my lunch tomorrow :biggrin:

Had two today -- a butter chicken AND a tartiere! Both were delicious... the butter chicken was milder spice-wise than I expected but still fabulous -- would definitely order it again. My fave of the two was the tartiere, tho.

I had wanted to get a sweet (cranberry & lemon) for dessert later tonight, but unfortunately hit the store when all sweets except one lone apricot were out.

Well, there's always this weekend!

Plus, I've already been in and gotten my fix (twice!).
