BLT sandwich (brinjal, lettuce, tomato)

This isn’t your typical BLT sandwich as it uses eggplant bacon. Say what?  Eggplant bacon has been circulating the web for quite some time but yours truly only recently heard about it when I saw it pop up on Instagram.  Eggplant (aka aubergine or brinjal) is known for its deep purple and glossy skin.  Some…

The Cuban sandwich makes use of leftover Cuban roast pork – for the uninitiated, it’s basically a delicious pork and cheese sandwich.  Having recently returned from a trip to Havana, the Cuban sandwich was high on our radar.  However, Mr. S and I only saw it once on a menu but never tried as it…

Fried Green Tomato Sandwich

Although fried green tomatoes (no, I’m not referring to the movie) might be a dish hailing from the southern United States, in the Maritimes we enjoy them, too.  My father loved the sight of green tomatoes in our vegetable patch.  His favorite way to eat them?  Fried with bacon and eggs, of course!

Scanway Catering & Pastry (a review)

For such a small city (slightly under 400,000), we are blessed to have attracted a slew of quality restauranteurs where the owners and chefs happily promote locally grown produce. Many highlight Nova Scotian wineries which have garnered international acclaim.  There seems to be a mini explosion of late with new restaurants popping up all over…
