Oasis HydraFruit – Organic Juices with 60% less sugar!

OASIS HYDRA FRUIT ORGANIC JUICE NOMSS.COM MOMMY BLOG CANADA

For many parents, getting their toddlers to drink water and eat fruits and vegetables is a chore. There’s a lot of pressure in parenting to figure out how to get a toddler well hydrated. As much as I want to avoid being a “Bad Mom”, sometimes it is hard to avoid giving your baby sugar and snacks. Despite feeling exhausted battling my kid to drink water, I feared asking for help and being mom-shamed. Luckily for Canadians who are looking for healthy and delicious food and beverages to include in their diet and lucky for them, the Oasis brand from Lassonde has created a tasty solution with Oasis HydraFruit organic products.

Hanamori Sushi Coquitlam | “the best” aburi sushi

Hanamori Sushi Coquitlam | “the best” aburi sushi

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Hanamori Sushi is located in Coquitlam (North Road / Lougheed neighbourhood). It is awkwardly located below an apartment building in the backlane behind Insadong. The restaurant has gone under new management/ owners. The restaurant is tiny with two booths, two tables and a four seater bar area. Despite the friendly service, we were pretty disappointed with all the raving reviews (that led us to this Japanese restaurant).

To reiterate, we were pretty disappointed about this sushi joint in Coquitlam that people were raving about. Some driving 1.5 hours to get to this place for “the best” aburi sushi. Suffice to say we were not mind blown but felt completely underwhelmed.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Aburi Salmon 3 each: Reminds me of the Tiger Eye from Sushi K Kamizato. It has rice and scallops in the center wrapped in salmon then torched. The teriyaki and hot sauce was just unnecessary.

Aburi Jumbo Scallop 3.25 each:  Jumbo is such a loose term when it comes to their “jumbo” scallops. The scallops were lightly torched compared to the other aburi. But I liked that the sauce was lighter.

Aburi Salmon Belly 3.25 each: very standard and neutral in terms of taste and freshness.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Red Dragon Roll 14: 2 pieces of prawn katsu, imitation crabmeat, avocado, seared spicy tuna on top with house special sauce. We found this roll to be overly saucy which completely covers the flavours of the individual ingredient. You can see the Korean influence use of sauce for this sushi roll.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Salmon Oshi 13 (6 pieces): salmon pressed sushi heavily sauced with mayo (but without flavour). The jalapeno was sliced too thick thus making the sushi too spicy and was not torched together with the oshi. Nothing compared to Miku, Minami, Sushi K or even Kai Japanese.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Scallop Oshi 13 (6 pieces): The nigiri oshi had an artificial sweet taste from the mayo. The scallops were dissatisfyingly minced instead of chopped or whole pieced.

 

HANAMORI SUSHI COQUITLAM ABURI NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG

Tempera Udon 10: Perhaps the silver lining of this piece was the nicely battered tempura. Light and crispy without being too greasy.

As mentioned, we were not impressed with “the best aburi”. Suffice to say our standards are spoiled by Miku, Minami, Sushi K. But it’s hard to justify a re-visit or a visit for those who have never been when a restaurant misses the mark on so many levels.

Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry “When Poultry Meets Wine” Pop-up Dinner at Edible Canada

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.

Amuse Bouche

  • 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

 

 

Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry Edible Canada nomss.com food blog

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.
