THE NEWS Calgary, Fall 2007 Recognizing that not all comfort foods are the same to all customers, this issue features International Comfort Foods. Comfort Foods Go Global F 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 recipe. Sunterra — Helping 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 sandwich • 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 flavour • 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 Get out your skis!
