[Editor’s Note: Don’t miss the meaty giveaway!]

Speaking of Two Rivers in my last post, they just opened their first public-facing shop and eatery last month, which includes a traditional butchery, a deli counter and an eat-in grill.

With the butchery, customers can find house-made sausages, dry-aged beef, and hand-tooled cuts, etc. At the take-out deli counter, there’s artisanal salumi and charcuterie. (more…)

The Butcher & Bullock is very close to my office. One time when I was hanging out with friends at the Butcher & Bullock, I discovered the “Build Your Sausage Plate“. You get to choose two sausages crafted in collaboration with Two Rivers Meats + two types of mustard + fries & kimchi. I paid extra for a piece of pretzel on the side because I didn’t think there would be enough food. (Excuse the grainy photo – like the mustard haha – it was an impromptu meetup so I didn’t have my camera with me!)

I chose a bratwurst and a chorizo. The sausages were juicy, flavourful. (more…)

On August 10, the popular Pirate Pak Day returns to White Spot! This is the only day of the year when the adults get to order their own Pirate Pak. For each Pirate Pak sold on that day, White Spot will donate $2.00 to Zajac Ranch for Children.

White Spot will be serving a limited menu on August 10. The Adult Pirate Pak menu has changed slightly this year; you’ll have 5 options: the Legendary Burger, Bacon Cheddar Burger, Mediterranean Chicken Burger, Sriracha Portobello Veggie Burger or Sriracha Goat Cheese Turkey Burger. They are served in a pirate boat, and come with bottomless fries, coleslaw, a soft drink, a scoop of ice cream and a chocolate “gold coin”. Not a burger fan? There will also be a selection of other sandwiches, entrees and salads for you to choose from – just order the boat on the side!

Arnold Bread recently launched four varieties of premium bread in British Columbia and Alberta. We were sent a couple loaves to try, and the possibilities with this product are endless!

With the No Small Potatoes Country Potato Bread, we made Toast with a delicious pistachio spread. We also made some PB& J and Grilled Cheese with it. There’s a hint of sweetness in the potato bread. While it’s good on its own, it also makes a good canvas for rich and bold flavours. I actually thought the bread reminded me of potato chips but Mr. said I was crazy!

As for the When It Grains, It Pours 12 Grain Bread, the texture of the bread is perfect for sandwiches. Not only did we make HLT Sandwiches (ham, lettuce, tomatoes) for picnic…

…we also made our own Oyster Po’ Boy Sandwich at home! The nutty flavours in the grain worked so well with meat and veggies.

Are you tempted to make your own creations with these delicious bread? We have partnered up with Arnold Bread to give away an awesome #Breadie Prize Pack valued at $100.
