Food Notes for March 23, 2015

  • I’m looking forward to attending Northern Land’s Meet Your Maker event this weekend. Learn more about the biggest all-Canadian wine and culinary festival in Vue Weekly.
  • Dream Tea House opened up their fourth location in Oliver Square (11242 104 Avenue). Stephanie wrote an overview of their menu items.
  • Sherwood Park now has its own location of Memphis Blues Barbecue House (150 – 222 Baseline Road).
  • Sandwich and Sons continue to get good food press, this week from both Liv and Twyla.
  • The seventh Pizza Odyssey took Phil to D’Amore’s Mercato and the Italian Centre, for a throwdown of grocery stores that double as pizzerias.
  • Not surprisingly, the third Prairie Noodle Shop pop-up was a resounding success, serving up vegetarian ramen. Andrea and Cindy recapped the evening.
  • Andrea also captured her experience at the first underground dinner at The Salt Room.
  • Cindy attended a variety of events during Edmonton’s first YEG Coffee Week – great to hear that it will be back next year, too!
  • Century Grill (and Hundred Bar and Kitchen) have been sold by Century Hospitality Group, in order to allow the business to focus on their other brands. Century Grill is hosting a final farewell party on March 28.
  • Chic Hog O’s Social Roast House closed recently due to a dispute with their new landlord. The couple behind the restaurant are currently scouting new locations and considering a food truck.
  • Did you know that March 20 was “macaron day”? Lillian (macaron baker extraordinaire) marked the occasion by reflecting on the origins and current direction of her blog.
  • F.E.D. U.P. (Feminist Eatery Database Undercover Project) is a site led by four Women’s Studies students at the University of Alberta, seeking to “highlight prominent issues regarding sex, gender and race in the service industry”.
  • The tickets for the 2015 edition of Eat Alberta go live on March 31, 2015.
  • Twyla is leading her own food tour to New York City April 12-16, 2015.
  • Mack and I hosted a family supper on Sunday, as Mack’s Mom is in town for the week. We successfully made citrus-braised pork shoulder tacos with all the fixings from Pucker. We’ll definitely make it again!

Tacos for the Family!
