Hunting and Gathering

I am so lucky to have married someone who has a passion for food like I do! It’s our way of nurturing each other. My husband likes the challenge of finding good, affordable wines to accompany our meals and on  the weekends he always asks what’s on the menu so he can choose the appropriate wines. The two of us have become even more passionate about food and wine since our travels to Italy!

We have a list of local haunts that we have developed over the years and visit them regularly to find our goodies.

As well, we are always on the lookout for news of new happenings in the food world.

We seem to spend a huge amount of time looking for new and different ingredients to try and to cook with. And…guess what? We actually love doing this bit. I know…weird or what?

It is so exciting to discover something you have read about in a magazine or new cookbook;  and bring home to try.

We seem to do this hunting and gathering no matter where we are, even on vacations and often get asked where to find certain items. We had a friend over who asked where one could find “mosto cotto”. As we just happened to have some in the kitchen purchased on our last trip to Italy, I jokingly said Panzano in Chianti!  So, you see…it is such fun to be able to unearth something and then let the person know where to find what they are looking for.
