Newsletter - August 2012 -
"Go Canada Go @ London 2012" 

Hi Everyone,

As our Olympians are hard at work in London, we´ve been enjoying a great summer in Vancouver. Vancouver's hard to beat when the sun is shining!!!

Since the Olympics are in London, we thought that it would be nice to share a traditional English dessert recipe from Rouxbe Cooking School with you, 'Warm Apple Cobbler' topped with vanilla ice cream. Click on the video recipe link at the bottom of the newsletter for your free Rouxbe trial.

Our Roldan Olives have made their room at Whole Foods Cambie location and people are loving them!!

We have 3 new locations where you can find our products in Pitt Meadows, Langley and Victoria. Check out where:

Hopcott Premium Meats located at 18385 Dewdney trunk rd., Pitt Meadows, B.C.

Hopcott Premium Meats is a 3rd generation family owned and run business, committed is to bringing hight quality, wholesale meats & products right from the farm to your table. Their goal is to offer you superior healthy meat while at the same time, allowing you to learn where your meat is coming from. In location you can find some of our great Casanovas Barcelona's salt with mushrooms, olives or sundried tomatoes along with our family Cazorliva EVOO, to use with their great selection of meats.

Tin Rood Market and Deli located at 101-1075 Pendergast St., Victoria, B.C.

The Tin Roof sources local produce and dry products whenever Bath can offer a good price for customers. She points out that though most people would prefer to shop locally and organic, for some families it’s simply not affordable 100% of the time. The Tin Roof’s stock represents a well-balanced variety favouring local and healthful products alongside more conventional items at a cost comparable to most grocery stores. The market also sells housemade sausages and frozen entrĂ©es, rotisserie chicken from Cowichan Bay, thin crust pizza by the slice (including a gluten-free option), and custom paninis. They are licensed, offering a small selection of beer and wine for customers stopping by for a quick bite. A small self-serve cheese and olive section was created for picnickers looking to assemble a takeout lunch en route to Beacon Hill or Dallas Road beaches

Heritage Meats Gourmet located at 19689 Willowbrook dr., Langley, B.C.

Heritage Meat gourmet is proud to be the Fraser Valley's source for meat and gourmet specialty foods. All their meat and poultry is non-medicated. They specialize in naturally-raised meat and poultry, from beef and chicket to veal and geese. But they do have a lot more: Our Antonio sotos saffron with D.O.P. in glass jar- 1g, along with a big selection of aged balsamic vinegars, soup stocks, sea salts from around the world and a lot more.
