Just half an hour away from us is a wonderful little restauranat called the Eco Cafe' which specializes in regional cuisine using locally grown products. We have several favourites on their menu! The owner is teaching cooking classes at a local school so Naomi and I are going to learn and try some new tastes.
Tim previously taught in the culinary arts program at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology and was a successful restauranteur in Edmonton. He has travelled extensively and it's really interesting to hear him talk about his adventures.
Wild Pacific Salmon with Roasted Red Pepper Pesto on Pasta and Autumn Salad with Mango Vinaigrette - it was just as delicious as it looks!!
And this week he prepared authentic Mexican dishes (after spending 2 weeks there on vacation last month) like Tortilla Soup (Sopa Azteca), Chicken in Green Mole, and Mexican Empanadas with Pork Picadillo. I forgot to take my camera but please take my word - it was scrumptious. And Bob came along this week too!! Maybe I can get him to be the sous-chef :))
