Greetings from Calgary where I am holed up this week in weather that is, well, cold as a witch’s …
However, we drank down a first dose of your friendly neighbourhood dukoral last week which certainly means warmer weather and a trip are on the horizon.
a) mix and drink for stomachs of steel no matter where you head
We were up at the top of Grouse Mountain on Saturday night for Dine Out Vancouver at The Observatory restaurant (very good) and opted to do homemade sushi on Sunday night. Many, many moons ago when we both had far more time than we do now, we actually taught sushi-making but it’s been years. The mother-of-all-maki rolls aside, all in all, we still have some competency when it comes to this. We even stopped by Granville Island on Sunday morning to pickup fresh wasabi. It makes such a difference to sushi and is a billion times better than any powdered versions. If you get the chance, always splurge and opt for it.
