Calgary, Fall 2007
Recognizing that
not all comfort
foods are the same
to all customers,
this issue features
Comfort Foods.
Comfort Foods Go Global
or many Canadians, a basic comfort food menu would
consist of meatloaf and apple pie. It could also be defined
as fried chicken with biscuits and gravy. Others may list favourites
like lasagna, salad rolls, perogies or even fish and chips. Whatever
your roots, comfort food is familiar food that makes you happy.
To give a cozy fall favorite a whole new flavour, try adding
one or two new fresh ingredients into the mix. Here are a few
suggestions from our markets:
Enjoy Breakfast Morning, Noon or Night
• Turn a cheese omelet into a spicy Asian seafood experience
simply with a dash of Chinese 5 spice, or give it a Mexican flare
with fajita seasoned chicken, topped with guacamole and
salsa picante
• Add pesto to your eggs for instant Green Eggs & Ham
• Bacon, cheese and chives added to a basic cornbread recipe
creates a complete breakfast on the go
Make Back to School More Appealing with a New
Generation of Lunch Comfort Foods
• Add spice and flavour to a ham and cheese sandwich with
monterey jack or horseradish cheddar and grainy mustard
Read on to
rediscover your
favourite childhood
foods, each with a
slight Sunterra twist
on an original

busy people enjoy
wholesome meals.
• Add Thai spices to traditional Chinese fried rice for new taste
• Slice apples and chop walnuts to add to your grilled cheese
• Try some honey mustard or cranberry relish on a smoked
turkey sandwich for a distinctly epicurean taste
• Experience grilled PB&J with sliced banana! Prepare just like
an ordinary grilled cheese, add weight to the sandwich while
frying to keep the sandwich from shifting
Variety is the Spice of Life… and of Dinner
• Penne baked with smoked bacon and gruyere is so much more
tantalizing than plain old mac & cheese
• Simply add curry to your mom’s potpie for a new burst of
• Modernize an ordinary pot roast with a forest mushroom
sauce and port demi-glace
• Before cooking a beef roast, smother it with a freshly ground
coffee/herb rub
• Substitute beef in your classic meatloaf recipe with bison.
Side with mushroom gravy, grilled asparagus, and any jazzed
up potato of your choice

Al Dente all Natural, Hand-Crafted
Al Dente pastas come in 10 flavours including
non-traditional choices such as wild mushroom
and spicy sesame. Favourites include their
original egg recipe and fettuccini made with
fresh spinach. The noodles are exceptionally
light and delicate, cooking in a mere two to
three minutes. Al Dente’s dough is made using
a blend of semolina and extra-fancy durum
flour with fresh eggs. By sheeting the dough
(similar to creating pasta with a rolling pin) Al
Dente ensures that the finished product is as
close to homemade as possible.
Shown: Spinach, Spicy Seasame and Lemon Chive Fettucini
