Food Notes for October 22, 2013

  • The third back alley “burger” (pioneered in Edmonton by Hundred, replicated in po’ boy form by Creole Envie) hits the streets on October 26, 2013 at Wild Tangerine. Pick up an O’my Bao, stuffed with Spring Creek Ranch beef cheek, Sylvan Star gouda and Asian slaw.
  • Mark your calendar: All is Bright, a new festival on 124 Street will be taking place on November 23, 2013. There will be light displays, sleigh rides and outdoor patios, among other things.
  • Get your xialongbao fix now: Shanghai 456 will be closing no later than November 12, 2013 (because of the airport lands appropriation). It sounds like they are looking for an alternate location though!
  • Woodwork posted an update this week – it is looking good!
  • The Edmonton Journal launched Gastropost today, a community that will be encouraging fun weekly food missions.
  • Cheryl reviewed the recent Sturgeon Valley Food and Wine Festival.
  • Eat North, a website dedicated to highlighting Canadian food, was launched recently by three Calgarians. They do want to shed the entire country though, and have reached out to writers accordingly.
  • How’s this for your Halloween frights? Salon posted an article titled, “7 horrifying truths about your chicken dinner”. I hadn’t heard about the Obama administration passing the law permitting chicken processed in China to be sold in the US without the appropriate labeling.
  • The City Market started its indoor edition last week. It was quite busy when we stopped in, likely benefiting from the additional traffic from the advanced polls located in City Hall.
