I went with my friend Cheryl to see the movie "Julie and Julia" last night, and has it ever put me in the mood to cook something! I think next week I'll make Boeuf Bourguignon (proof of the power of this cooking urge: I'm a vegetarian after all), but for now it's off to the market to pick up the ingredients for broccoli cheese soup and peach tart. I rave weekly about our trips to the market so I'll try not to repeat my general "local produce is so good! The growers and sellers are so great!" and instead focus on one shop within the market I visit weekly - Jantzi's Cheese. There's often a lineup at the counter, but you're rewarded for your patience when you reach the front and get to their selection of delicious local cheeses (and a few imported favourites). Jantzi's specializes in extra old cheddar, so if you're a fan of deeply flavourful aged cheeses this is definitely the place for you. This week Rick packed me up a grated six-cheese blend (which included some of that extra-old cheddar and will be excellent for that cheese soup), our favourite hot pepper brick, and a block of Greek-style feta. I can't wait to start enjoying them in some of the recipes we've got planned for this week!
