Host like a star with these new deliciously addicting dips from SPUD.ca and Be Fresh! As Chef Paul McGreevy joins their team as the new Director of Food, he has also recently come out with two dips – the Mayan Pumpkin Seed Dip and the Envious Ed Dip that we are crazy about! These dips go virtually with everything. They are great with some pita chips (we recommend these for crunch and rigidity); spread them over toast, or add a scoop to top your salad!
The Envious Ed Dip: A delicious alternative to guacamole and avocado! Made with edamame beans and has a bright zesty flavour profile. We like it alone with chips or spread on top of toast with a fried egg!
- Ingredients: edamame beans, olive oil, kale, lime juice, water, jalapeno, garlic, salt, black pepper
- This product travelled 5 km to reach the warehouse.
- Features: Canadian, Gluten Free, Vegan/Dairy Free, Wheat Free
Mayan Pumpkin Seed Dip: This is my favourite dip of 2019 so far! I could eat the whole package myself! This dip also has a zesty profile with a subtle earthiness from the pumpkin seeds. I love all the different textures and added herbs!
- Ingredients: pumpkin seeds, sunflower oil, red onions, lime juice, jalapeno, parsley, cilantro, salt, garlic, orange flavour (alcohol)
- This product travelled 5 km to reach the warehouse.
- Features: Canadian, Gluten Free, Vegan/Dairy Free, Wheat Free

Harvest Community Foods (or as I like to refer to Harvest Union) is a local grocer servicing the Chinatown-Strathcona neighbourhood at 243 Union St. The grocery and food shop began is a community project (This Space), in which a public vote determined the use of the site. Harvest also offers an innovative chef-crafted CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares of bi-weekly seasonal farm produce (available year round, multiple weeks or an entire season).
Chef and Partner Gabriella Meyer and Owner Andrea Carlson from Burdock & Co. creates a neighbourly environment that is casual, warm and captures the essence of farm to table dining in a cafe setting.
Harvest carries local foods and products and offers a delicious, healthy noodle menu filled with a variety of fresh vegetables and meats. The broth is rich and not greasy. You leave filling full but not stuffed. I love the variety of hearty ingredients and the pork shoulder is SO tender!
#29: Ramen with squash, miso broth, nori, scallion, radish, and sesame. It is a vegetarian noodle bowl. But for me, I added some pork shoulder and am ajitama egg to my ramen. Let’s be real here!
#17: Udon with sake kazu chicken, watercress and shitake mushrooms.
Next time, I really need to try their dry noodle #31 with rice noodle and hazelnut, smoked chilli and greens.

REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread is addictive! It is like Nutella with a peanut butter kick! We recently received a couple bottles of this heavenly spread. OMG! Seriously, the first thing I did was dig my spoon into it and ate it straight up. Please don’t judge! I’m sure it is just like eating raw cookie dough. Anyways, Vancouver recent Indian Summer had me craving ice cream! So, I thought I would whip up an easy REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread ice cream recipe with my ice cream maker bowl attachment for my Kitchen Aid that my husband gave me many, many Christmas ago.
This simple vanilla ice cream recipe is so easy and simple. It only requires four ingredients! And there are so many options to improvise! Just like adding a few spoonful of REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread! Quick and delicious! No cooking or any custard base required!
The only thing that requires pre-planning is freezing my Kitchenaid ice cream maker bowl attachment a day earlier.
Easy Ice Cream Recipe with REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 1/2 can condensed milk
- 2 tablespoons REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread
- pinch of sea salt
- Add REESE Peanut Butter Chocolate Spread to the condensed milk.
- Add whipping cream and above ingredients to a blender and blitz. I like to use my Magic Bullet for small projects.
- Pour into KitchenAid ice cream bowl and blend at speed 6 until it starts to freeze.
- Add in bits of REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup if desired
- Freeze overnight.
Once the ice cream starts to freeze over you can already enjoy this. It is soft and tastes almost like a malt. If you prefer harder consistencies, then freeze overnight.
Hope you like this simple easy ice cream recipe. Let us know in the comments below!

The folks at Pure Infused Maple Syrup like it so much, they decided they wanted to be able to use it with every meal – savory or sweet. Pure Infused Maple Syrup created five unique and creative twists on Canadian maple syrup.
Five Pure Infused Maple Syrup Flavors
- Vanilla, Cinnamon, Star Anise – deepen silky sweetness of maple syrup with pure vanilla, cinnamon bark and just a touch of star anise. This infusion creates a familiar yet unique taste that will transport you to the spice markets of the Orient. Use it to give a distinct twist to bread puddings, ice cream or your morning oatmeal. Better yet, transform your everyday pancakes, waffles or French toast into something extraordinary.
- Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Cloves – something special about baking spices: they’re evocative, they’re sensory, and of course, they’re delicious in just about everything Grandma makes. These warm spices heighten the magic of maple syrup and are well suited to any number of culinary pursuits – traditional baking, ciders and teas, and even some exotic North African and Middle Eastern dishes, where the interplay of sweet and savoury are essential.
- Lavender & Chai – The sweet smell of lavender was prized for its relaxing and calming influences with unique floral qualities. Lavender’s fragrant and slightly spicy notes are perfectly balanced by deep and dusky Indian masala. It’s the ideal complement to sweet treats like panna cotta, crème brulee, tea cakes or scones. The lavender really pops when we drizzle it over strong, aged cheeses such as cheddar or gouda. For something more subtle, sweeten a café latte with it – delicious!
- Ginger, & Apple Cider Vinegar (Maple Gastrique) – A perfect way to leave your dinner guests wondering how you transformed those simple sautéed greens. PURE’s Maple Gastrique makes it super easy because we did all the hard work balancing the sweetness of maple syrup, with the tartness of pure apple cider vinegar. The result is that you get all the kudos. In addition to sautéed vegetables, we love it as a way to transform stir frys (a light drizzle does wonders!), use it in sauces to add depth and complexity to flavours, and as the base for Asian dipping sauces for dumplings and gyoza.
- Chipotle & Lemongrass – straight from the BBQ. The smokiness imparted by the chipotle peppers is a lovely counterpoint to the natural sweetness of maple syrup. The lemongrass helps brighten up the finish, as the long, lingering, subtle heat of the chipotle dances on the palate. We love using this to make homemade barbecue sauces, marinades (Korean short ribs!), brushed it over salmon steaks before grilling, and turned it into a dynamite dipping sauce for wings.
These five different flavors covers something for every occasion. Be it drinks, entrees, desserts… Possibilities are endless. If you missed them from EAT! Vancouver, you can purchase directly from their website!
