Dame Mireille Sauve – Dames Wines

Earlier this year Dame Mireille Sauve led a fundraising initiative for Les Dames d’Escoffier BC, by making some dame good wine, and we’ve been drinking our far share of it and have wrapped several bottles up for gifts. Each bottle of #dameswine supports food and beverage education for BC’s dynamic women. The Dames White is a beautiful BC blend of 80% Pinot Blanc from Sperling Vineyard in Kelowna, 10% Riesling from Sperling Vineyard in Kelowna, and 10% Gewurztraminer from Meyer Family Vineyards in Okanagan Falls. The Dames Red can be enjoyed on its own with friends or alongside assorted charcuterie and cheese plates, burgers or stew. A beautiful BC blend of 70% Merlot and 30% organic Syrah, both sourced from vineyards in the south Okanagan. Availalbe online and at select stores such as Marquis Wine Cellars. $25 a bottle.

Dame Jennifer Schell –The Butcher, the Baker, the Wine and Cheese Maker in the Okanagan 

I’m pleased to say I’ve got a signed copy of this book, and keep it handy as it’s not only full of great recipes, but is also an excellent read. Chefs, farmers, and winemakers unite in this exquisite Okanagan cookbook.Whether it’s a simple soup, a hearty main dish, or a special-occasion dessert, each recipe in this book is written by an Okanagan chef, and inspired by an ingredient that is locally and sustainably produced in the Okanagan. It might be free-run turkey raised on the Hamblett Highland Turkey farm, organic vegetables from the urban gardens of Green City Acres, or brie cheese from Upper Bench Cheese in the Naramata. Add a wine pairing from a local Okanagan winery, and you’ve got a collection of recipes that celebrate the heart and soul of culinary culture in the Okanagan.

Dame Rossan Ascencio – Original Mexican Gourmet Cajetas

Love these sauces on our homemade ice cream or atop waffles! Handcrafted traditional Cajetas are a caramel sauce/spread made with goat’s milk. What makes Cajeta unique is the fact that it is not caramelized sugar, but caramelized goat’s milk! It’s actually low sugar, low fat, low calorie content and a fantastic alternative for lactose intolerant diets, as it has no butter, or cream in it. OMG-Original Mexican Gourmet’s Cajetas are available in three, all natural flavours: vanilla, rum and espresso! OMG Cajetas are available at fine, specialty retailers, such as The Gourmet Warehouse,  and can be ordered with your groceries through SPUD. www.omgfoods.ca

Sandrine French Pastry & Chocolate – A spectacular pastry shop! www.sandrinepastry.com

Put together a little ‘French’ shopping list from this shop! Fois Gras – A French Christmas feast wouldn’t be the same without a portion (or four) of that typically festive fare – foie gras, often served up on slices of bread as a starter or apéritif.  Duck Confit – Although not just for the holiday season, it’s a decadent treat, especially the way the way Sandrine serves it – two duck legs with confit, all pre-packaged for your home cooking. Tourtière – Although tourtière originates in Quebec, it’s become a holiday favourite around the world.  Traditional style with beef and pork, or turkey with spices, a tourtière is perfect for any meal during the holiday season.  Another popular favourite from the freezer at the shop is quiche.  A bit of time in the oven and it’s ready to serve guests or the family, without a lot of time or effort. Yule Log – The French will spare a little room in their stomachs for the traditional Christmas chocolate log or “Bûche de Noël”. More Sweets – Hand-made chocolates, macarons, delicate, light, almond meringues with delectable fillings can provide the sweet part of the menu while handcrafted chocolate trees and pretty jars of jams and jellies make perfect gifts.

Gifts for Food and Drink Lovers – Global TV 2015

What do you get that person in your life who lives for the latest kitchen gadget, best bottle of wine or the ultimate cookbook? I spent some time in cook shops and snooped around many a kitchen to come up with the list for gifts for foodies this year. Here’s the details that I presented on Global TV for 2015. Give and you shall receive! There’s more suggestions on BC Living as I just couldn’t fit them all in.

Thanks to Elsa Corsi from Jeweliette Jewelry for the amaze bling that I wore and to Salon Haze and Revlon for my hair and Onyx and CND for the sparkly nails.

Jennifer Schell Puts the Okanagan on the Culinary World Map

an okanagan cookbook cover shot copy 3First there was one award, then another, another, and yet another, bringing the trophy count now to an impressive five for Okanagan-based writer Jennifer Schell.

Schell grew up in the sunny Okanagan, a farm girl at heart, who’s equally comfortable dressing to the nines to check out the latest hot spot in dining. She’s traveled the world but has come home to her roots to promote the Valley she grew up in.

The result? The Butcher, The Baker, The Wine & Cheese Maker – An Okanagan Cookbook a celebration of the Okanagan Valleys farmers, artisans and chefs. The book is full of not only recipes, but the intimate stories of those behind them.

While Schell is already working on her next book, a similar work but this time focusing on the characters of Vancouver, The Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island, this initial masterpiece continues to garner worldwide attention.

The awards?
• Gold Medal IPPY – Best Non-Fiction Western Canada Independent Publisher Award
• Winner – Gourmand World Cookbook Award – Best Local Cuisine Cookbook,
Canada and shortlisted for Best in the World at Gourmand World Cookbook Ceremony
on May 21, 2014 (fingers crossed).
• Winner – Best Cookbook – Paris Book Festival
• Winner – Best Cookbook – San Francisco Book Festival
• Honourable Mention – Green Book Festival

I am pleased to call Jennifer Schell not only just my editor (BC Food and Wine Trails Magazine) but also a friend. We are all looking forward to watching her unravel the culinary secrets on the next leg of her adventures. Congratulations pal!
