The other night I attended a “When Poultry Meets Wine” popup dinner at Edible Canada with Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry. The action-packed evening was filled with delicious eats featuring different poultry products, wine pairings from Ripples Estate Winery and a culinary demonstration by Chef Tobias on how to cook the perfect tender juicy chicken!

To begin the evening, Sommelier Ashley West introduced us on new wine pairings and how to pair wines with poultry. For example, always match your food intensity with wine intensity. And choose a wine that has stronger acidity than your dish.

 

Pro Tip: Regional Pairing – featuring wine and food that complements each other geographically. For example: Loire Valley, France goat cheese and Sauvignon blanc with high acidity.

  • Crispy Duck Hearts: garam masala honey and ginger aioli.
  • Duck Liver Pate: truffle, stone fruit compote with sourdough.

Wine Pairing: Radiance – Sparkling Blueberry Wine: sweet & refreshing flavour

Chef Tobias demonstrated how he prepares a butter poached free range chicken breast with a golden beets salad.

 

Pro Tip: Always cook chicken in low heat – 250F for 25 to 30 mins. The result will be buttery, tender and juicy! Never ever cook with high heat where you char the skin. The result will be dry, burnt chicken.

Fraser Valley Smoked Duck Salad: A perfect half boiled ajitama duck egg with endive, apple, pistachio, chervil and julienne Pekin smoked duck.

 

Wine Pairing: Cheam – a lovely blend of Gewürztraminer, Ehrenfelser, Chardonnay and Muscat sourced from the Okanagan. It is loaded with fragrant fresh flowers and ripe stone fruit, this medium bodied wine is a perfect table wine for any occasion.

Grilled Squab: Chermoula, buckwheat honey, white bean croquette and parsley. The meat is widely described as “tasting like dark chicken meat”. It is tender, juicy and hard to resist when cooked perfectly.

 

Wine Pairing: In·tem·per·ance– This rich deep dark colour fruit table wine bursts with intense flavours of blueberries. It has a high quantity of antioxidant and rich content of tannins.

 

Pro Tip: The “peanut butter” mouthfeel of rich tannins helps to cut fat from the food.

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon Introduces “Home for Dinner” Community Fundraising Initiative

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon Introduces “Home for Dinner” Community Fundraising Initiative

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
“HOME FOR DINNER” FUNDRAISING INITIATIVE SUPPORTS CHILDREN AND FAMILIES OF RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE BC & YUKON
Host a dinner for your loved ones and give back to families whose children require life-saving medical attention

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Nothing brings families together like a nourishing, home-cooked meal – and that’s why Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon is launching “Home for Dinner” in support of families whose time, energy and funds are being channeled towards life-saving medical treatment for their children. Every donation supports families who must relocate to Vancouver for their child’s medical treatment, giving them a home away from home and the chance to enjoy precious everyday moments like sharing a family meal.

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Home for Dinner is a community fundraising initiative, which encourages locals to embrace the tradition of connecting with family around the dinner table by hosting a dining event in their home, or at their favourite restaurant. Hosts who cook a meal can suggest guests forego bringing wine or hostess gifts, and instead contribute a donation. Those who choose to implement “Home for Dinner” at a restaurant can treat their nearest and dearest to a decadent meal and request guests donate funds as a thank-you for their generosity. All funds raised will go towards families staying at Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver, ensuring they benefit from a supportive and healing environment while their child or children undergo life-saving medical treatments.  

 

 

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog
Hosting a dining event is not only an accessible way to give back to the community, but also offers the perfect opportunity for family and friends to make time for togetherness in support of a good cause. Those interested in taking part can simply sign up as hosts on the Home for Dinner website; invite their favourite people to participate as guests or co-hosts; and host the meal either at home or at a restaurant, collecting donations from their guests. 

 

 

 

“There is such comfort in sharing a meal with loved ones at the end of the day,” says Richard Pass, CEO of Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon. “Families staying at the House are focused on ensuring their children receive crucial medical treatment, and often do not have the resources to engage in this powerful tradition. By hosting a Home for Dinner event, the community can come together to give back and make a difference in a way that is both simple and meaningful. Next time you’re planning a meal, sign up to be a Home for Dinner host – it’s an extra step that can make a world of difference in a family’s life.”

 

Ronald McDonald House HOME FOR DINNER Nomss.come Food Blog

Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon is owned and operated by the Children’s Family House Society of BC. The organization runs a 73-bedroom property on the grounds of BC Children’s Hospital that provides accommodation, compassion and a sense of community for 2,000 families each year who must travel to Vancouver for their children’s medical treatments. The house offers spacious suites and services for kids of all ages that include a fitness area, arts and crafts studio, LEGO lounge, magic room and several indoor and outdoor gathering spaces.

Kai Japanese sushi Port Coquitlam NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

Kai Japanese Restaurant is located in Port Coquitlam by Fremont Village (beside A&W, near Wal-mart). This new sushi bar / izakaya has only been opened for approximately four months. This new sushi restaurants offers oshi sushi (pressed sushi similar to Miku and Kishimoto). So you can imagine how excited I was to try this!

 

The interior is roomy and clean. Lots of booth seats, four tops and bar seats. It is baby friendly and opens seven days a week! Prices are reasonable and service is friendly. I also liked that the menu offers a variety of tapas, tempura, pan fried noodles, rolls, sashimi and oshi sushi (pressed sushi).

To start things right we ordered two Sapporo on tap.
