Denman Island Christmas Craft Faire 2009

Come to the Denman Island Christmas Craft Faire
December 5th & 6th 2009

I have been busy assembling my 'Rainbow Lentil Soup Mix', 'Curried Rice Mix', 'Garlic Seasoned Pepper', 'BBQ Dry Rub' and my ever so popular 'Rainforest Nut Bark' made with whole almonds, cashews, pecans and Brazil nuts in Dark Belgian Chocolate.
I will personally sign your copy of 'For the Love of Food', my new seasonal cookbook.
Walk on the ferry and take the shuttle or walk up the hill and visit over 70 local artisans in both halls on the island.

Lunch and desserts are also available.
See you there!!

Tomato Harvest

San Marzano Tomatoes
I could not resist snapping a photo before picking the ripe tomatoes from this incredible San Marzano plant, (they are long plum-type tomatoes).
I have always had success with this variety but cannot recall ever having such a heavy yield on one plant!

I am off to make 'Roasted Tomato Sauce' for the freezer... for my recipe see page 198 of my new cookbook "For the Love of Food".
Bon Appetit!
