    Holiday stuffing hot takes and endless inspiration from 16 Canadian chefs


    Christine Tizzard, Chef, food stylist, and recipe pioneer from Newfoundland, says:

    I have done a lot of different stuffings over the years but my family always demands the traditional ‘East Coast’ version that includes these must haves: Lots of onion and celery sautéed in lots of butter. For herbs, savory is a must, specifically Mt. Scio Savory Farm in Newfoundland. And it must be cooked in the turkey.

    I personally like the addition of a cup of cranberries or wild blueberries scattered about. Both I have on my freezer, and I just toss them in before stuffing the stuffing in the turkey. I crisp up chopped chorizo or an extra layer of flavour. So good! And don’t be afraid to use gluten-free bread — it works just as well. And there are always a few gluten sensitivities when having a big feast.

    A case of the boos: Spooky Halloween treats

    Toronto Sun

    Ahh…Halloween! Who doesn’t like a haunting good time? Although in the middle of the week – there are parties being planned well into the weekend. And – let’s not forget The Day of the Dead coming up this week as well. According to Hallmark, Halloween’s history dates back to 700 BC, based on ancient Druid customs. The Druids, a Celtic religious order in ancient Britain, Ireland and France, believed that the souls of the dead returned to mingle with the living on “hallowed eve” – people dressed in costumes to disguise themselves from these spirits.

    It wouldn’t be Halloween with getting dressed up – be it wee ones getting ready to trick or treat tonight, or adults glamming it all out for upcoming parties. Whatever you’re planning, here are a few recipes that are bound to make your soiree a spooktacular affair!
