Keeping the Ferial

I wrote this post on keeping the ferial six and a half years ago. I’m reposting it with some change in my thoughts. Not that I necessarily disagree with what I wrote, but that I find my approach to some matters a little changed in the interim. One more thing I have noticed since the start of the pandemic.

Staub La Cocotte – My Favourite Pot

Let me start by saying that this post about a Staub pot, is in no way sponsored by the company or any of it’s retailers. I did receive it as a gift, but this is simply my take on the pot. Despite having owned this pot for the best part of two years, it was only at the beginning of spring that I started making use of it. Then of course, the pandemic hit, and I found myself cooking more…Continue readingStaub La Cocotte – My Favourite Pot

Kay’s Delicatessen-William Avenue

Kay’s Delicatessen is a breakfast and lunch establishment situated on William Avenue just west of Winnipeg’s City Hall.Every so often, as priest, I find myself needing to pick up supplies for church.

Kitchen Counter Cooking School

The Kitchen Counter Cooking School, by Kathleen Flinn, is one of those books that I picked up from the discount bin, read the first few pages and then promptly forgot about. Then, about a week or so ago, I was looking for something to read while I ate my supper and decided to pick it up again. I’m glad I did. The Kitchen Counter Cooking School: How a Few Simple Lessons Transformed Nine Culinary Novices Into Fearless Home Cooks, begins…Continue readingKitchen Counter Cooking School
