Revisiting Ireland

Ahh, are we starting to see green yet? I mean, there’s no grass growing in snowy Ottawa, but St. Patrick’s Day is everywhere on cookie icing to shamrocks for sale in grocery stores. Do you celebrate?

I’ve been going through some life changes which slowed down my blogging but I’m back. Happy new year! I also decided to answer some questions I get from people who want to eat more locally. If you’re in Ottawa, check out my resource list here.

This year included a lot more gluten free options! Every year I want to find out how many people are offering GF options (not pizza, unfortunately..) so I always ask each vendor. THIS YEAR Fadi's (Main Stage) started offering gluten free wraps and buns! Hooray! I guess it helps to keep asking ;)

Babotie - South African Ground Lamb Casserole

I fell in love with this dish when I was at cooking school and make it for a lot of my clients. I'm happy to be sharing my version of it with you! I make this a lot at home of myself too since it's an easy grab and go lunch that can be reheated really easily in a microwave or toaster oven.
