DON’T Even Get Me Started!


Okay so it’s here, the Georgia Straight “Golden Plates” awards…how exciting…NOT!!!

I can’t believe that year after year they are exactly the same. I was literally shocked to see that for “best sandwich” in Vancouver, they picked Subway! Come on, can’t we do better than that? Is that all we want or demand for ourselves? If a European came here on vacation and asked you, “Ver do I go, for best sand-wich?”, would you really (honestly) send them to Subway?

Personally, I would say the best sandwich that I have had lately was at Scuié. It’s an Italian caffé. They make really nice sandwiches (and much more). There are two locations here in Vancouver (the downtown one has better service and is more livelier than the Yaletown location). There is also La Grotta Del Formaggio, they make fantastic sandwiches. You can pick from fancy ingredients like marinated artichokes, roasted peppers, yummy green olives etc. Not to mention that the meat is sliced right there, as is the cheese. Plus it’s family owned, which is a bonus.

I guess what I am saying is…is this it? Is this as good as it gets? If we don’t expect better than “Subway” then we will not likely get any better. Not that I am really slagging Subway – I am sure there are very nice people (and smart people) behind it and the sandwiches are good value and not bad tasting. I just want more than this when it comes to “the best sandwich”…am I wrong? Is that too much to ask?

Well that’s my Saturday Rant!

So what do you think? Do you just love Subway, and if so “would you rate it as, “the best sandwich?” Where is your favorite sandwich? I Would love to know for the next time I go on vacation. Just in case, the locals tell me “Subway” :-)

Ciao for now, dawn


For those of you who don’t know “The Georgia Straight” is a local free paper here in Vancouver. They do a pretty good job at letting us Vancouver folk what is happening here in the city.

Technique Tuesday: November 4, 2008


Hey there Ya’ll,

We just wanted to send everyone a note to say that there is not going to be a release this week. We are working on some good ones though, which will be coming out in the weeks to follow. You might even say some of the lessons are “Egg-cellent”.

Besides, we know that today is a big day in the United States and many people will be standing in line to vote and focusing on the election. Don’t worry though – we aren’t going to leave all of you high and dry. Here is a yummy video recipe for Chicken Parmigiana.

Golden pieces of lightly breaded chicken breast are baked in a delicious homemade tomato sauce and topped with mozzarella cheese. Oh so good, especially when served with Spaghetti Aglio e Olio.

Chicken Parmigiana

P.S. – We have reviewed the homework from last week and it has come down to two finalists. They were picked based on the following: the amount of techniques used, whether or not those techniques were used properly and their recipes (photos, steps, and method description).

But we want you – the community – to have a look and tell us what you think. Rate and comment on each recipe. Check out our finalists:

Linda C. made Yang Chow Fried Rice
Carol P. made Juniper Gin Chicken Pasta

The winner of a 7″ Global Knife will be announced next Tuesday. Good luck Linda and Carol!

Pan Tossing Winner


Congratulations to scullen from New Zealand! He is the official winner of Rouxbe’s “So You Think You Can Toss?” pan-tossing competition.

He will receive an 11″-inch Viking Fry Pan (valued at $184.95 USD) plus a lifetime membership to Rouxbe (valued at $199.00 USD).

Here’s an example of why your kids are never too young to start cooking – 6-year old Kate did a fabulous job on her video but since her daddy works at Rouxbe, she’s not eligible to take first place.
