VACATION Update May 21, 2013
I am flying off to Toronto for a visit with my family and to attend the opening of Kathy Venter's solo exhibition
of her life-size ceramic sculpture at the Gardiner Museum. I modeled for Kathy for her figure
entitled "Woman Drawing". The show runs from May 30 to September 15, 2013. If you are in
Toronto this summer, take some time to see the exhibition. You can read my blog about the sculpture at my
Life Model Blog.
I will be back at the Saturday Market on June 1st!
The Saturday Market is on and we hope you are planning a trip to Salt Spring this
year! If you are here on a Saturday do stop by the Market. You will find us in our usual spot
with some samples and our full selection of Monsoon Coast jars and gift boxes. Other days of the week
you can find us on-island at NatureWorks, Country Grocer (Deli Section), Waterfront Gallery, Love My Kitchen and
SaltSpring Mercantile. I will be out of town on May 25th, but you will be able to find what you need at one of the stores listed here.
Thanks to Oliver Burke who sent his recipe for
Oliver's Thursday Night Curry with Prawns.
He used Moghul Curry, Punjabi Garam Masala and Tunisian Harissa. Full marks for Oliver!
From his recipe obviously he likes his curry HOT! Give it a whirl any night of the week.
This summer is a great time to break out the BBQ and our BBQ Rub. Try our excellent recipe for
BBQ Pulled Pork. It is AMAZING!
It takes some time but definitely worth it.
Even long-time customers forget to check our recipe page for inspiration. The most recent additions include:
Spicy Zesty Shrimp using our BBQ Rub and GM or Mahaviras Feast,
Chilaquiles using our BBQ Rub,
Moghul Curry Hot Pepper Jelly Dip and
Kale Chips which work well with BBQ Rub, Durban Curry or Tandoori & Tobago Habanero.
I am still working at expanding the number of stores that carry Monsoon Coast
spice mixtures. We are at nearly 50 locations across Canada. Let me know if you have a favourite gourmet food or grocery store
near you that should carry our products.
