приятного аппетита (Priyatnogo Appetita!)
Have you ever experienced a craving for your Baba’s home-cooked dinner? With a piping hot bowl of borscht served with a generous slice of rye bread and hearty helpings of perogies and cabbage rolls?
I had just such a yearning last week and it made me think of my sweet grandmother and her love of feeding people great quantities of made-from-scratch feasts. That memory of her standing in her kitchen surrounded by steaming pots and wafts of delicious aromas, sent me on a quest to find a traditional meal just like she would whip up.
Nestled in a small strip of shops on the corner of City Parkway and 102nd Avenue, I discovered Galina’s Euro Food store. As soon as I walked inside, I knew that I had found the place that would satisfy my hunger for some traditional Ukrainian fare.
The store is adorned with beautiful Russian tchotchkes and the shelves are lined with jars, bags and boxes of Eastern European food — from pickles and preserves to pastas and grains. Who would not be tempted to take home some exotic treats — Russian candy, chocolates, cakes, or some homemade poppy seed buns?
There are cold cases filled with fish, sausages and cheese. The freezer section offers a mouth-watering selection of cabbage rolls, borscht and other traditional favourites. The store carries food, deli items, snacks and beverages from many countries in Eastern Europe, including Piroshki (pocket pies) from Russia, Pelmeni (meat filled pasta) from Serbia and Manty (dumplings) from Uzbekistan. But the best thing? Fifteen different kinds of perogies — handmade from scratch in small batches!
Galina’s Euro Food store is family owned and has been operating in the Surrey Central area for nine years. The family is committed to providing their customers with classic homemade dishes that are delicious and ethnically authentic, following tried and true recipes. As well as serving the local Surrey community, Galina food products are sold in retailers throughout the Lower Mainland and their perogies are served in many Greater Vancouver eateries.

There’s a New Pizzeria in The Neighbourhood…and It’s Inside 7-Eleven Stores Across Canada
7-Eleven launches new lighter, crispier hand panned pizzas – made in
Canada with quality Canadian ingredients.
7-Eleven Canada invites Canadians to visit the new pizzeria in their neighbourhood – featuring hand panned pizzas made with quality Canadian ingredients.
The brand’s newest offering strikes the perfect balance between authentic Italian heritage and Canadian traditions. Knowing that the dough is the most important element to customers, 7-Eleven developed a light and crispy crust made from 100% Canadian wheat using authentic natural sourdough from Puglia, Italy. The dough is then hand-stretched and panned in B.C. to provide the lightness and crispiness reminiscent of an Italian pizzeria.
Quality Canadian ingredients top these flavour-packed pizzas including traditionally slow-dry cured pepperoni from Montreal. Three types of 100% Canadian milk cheeses bring the flavours together, including provolone and parmesan from Ontario and mozzarella from British Columbia.
“Our goal for our new pizza recipes was to provide a quality, delicious pizza hot from our store ovens in minutes 24/7 – or delivered to your home,” explains Norman Hower, VP and GM of 7-Eleven Canada. “The crust is arguably the most important piece of the pie, so we took our time to develop an authentic tasting dough that we knew people would love.”
For the month of December, Canadians are able to sample the new pizzas for free every Friday from 2-4pm! Whether you’re in a crunch for a kid’s party, tomorrow’s breakfast, or craving some late-night munchies, 7-Eleven Canada has you covered with late-night deliveries in over 350 stores and over 410 on December 16. To see if your local store delivers, visit www.7-eleven.ca/delivery.

Province Brands of Canada, a leading researcher in cannabinoid science and the developer of first-of-its-kind luxury beverages powered by cannabis, is excited to announce today the selection of its exclusive distribution partner to bring the first nationally available nonalcoholic CBD beer to the Irish consumer.
Following an extensive search and competition, Province Brands of Canada announced that Barry & Fitzwilliam has been selected as exclusive distributor across the Republic of Ireland for Province Brands of Canada’s superior line of CBD beer in a multi-year relationship between the two firms. Barry & Fitzwilliam is Ireland’s largest independent premium drinks distributor, with a portfolio of more than 120 top-brand beers, wines, and spirits, a commitment to nationwide distribution, and an emphasis on high-level customer care.
“Province Brands of Canada is very excited to be working with the fine team at Barry & Fitzwilliam to bring the first nationally available CBD beer to the Irish consumer,” said Dooma Wendschuh, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder. “Three years ago, we began our journey. To be preparing to bring our first beers to Ireland and to be entering the European market is a breakthrough step for Province Brands of Canada and our approach to research, development, and innovation.”
“Barry & Fitzwilliam is delighted with our new association with Province Brands of Canada,” said Michael Barry, Managing Director of Barry & Fitzwilliam. “Province Brands is at the leading edge of CBD-infused and other cannabis powered beverages internationally and we are excited to be at the forefront with them in Ireland.”
Ireland ranks 6th in the world for beer consumption per capita and the new venture between Province Brands and Barry & Fitzwilliam is expected to begin offering CBD-infused, barley-based, non-alcoholic beverages across Ireland in February 2020.
Holiday Plant-Based Recipes | Celebrity Chef Craig Harding shares untraditional plant-based Thanksgiving Menu
The President’s Choice® Brand Puts a Plant-Based Twist on Beloved Thanksgiving Classics
PC® Test Kitchen teams up with Celebrity Chef Craig Harding to create an untraditional holiday menu, incorporating an exciting new line-up of PC® Plant-Based products
The team at President’s Choice® (PC®) is helping overwhelmed hosts tackle Thanksgiving menu planning with recipe ideas and new plant-based products that will suit any palate, revealing that plant-based meal options may be easier than you think. A recent survey* found that 38 per cent of Canadians are looking to integrate more plant-based foods into their diet, but many Canadians aren’t too sure where to start.
“This weekend, millions of families across the country will be sitting down to a Thanksgiving feast – full of turkey, gravy and stuffing,” says Kathlyne Ross, VP of product development and innovation at Loblaw Companies Limited. “And, at many of those tables, someone will be looking for a non-meat option for dinner. Our expanded line-up of President’s Choice products that are meat and dairy-free will help make plant-based eating easier and more delicious than ever, particularly this holiday weekend.”
To provide much needed support to the almost one-third of Canadians who find it challenging to accommodate guest and family member food preferences during the holidays*, the team at President’s Choice® has collaborated with celebrity Chef Craig Harding to re-imagine festive classics, incorporating an expanded line-up of PC® Plant-Based products. These delicious recipes showcase that creamy soups and dressings, hearty mains and decadent desserts are a possibility for all food lovers around the table:
- Kale, Delicata Squash and Kohlrabi Salad featuring PC® Cucumber and Dill Cashew Dip
- Roasted Celery Root and Pear Soup with Red Pepper and Cashew Crostini featuring PC® Plant-Based Roasted Red Pepper Cashew Dip and PC® Dairy-free Kefir Probiotic Fermented Coconut Milk
- Mushroom and Chickenless Chicken Wellington featuring PC® Plant-Based Chickenless Breasts with Vegan Charred Gravy
- Citrus Roasted Heirloom Carrots and Avocado with Toasted Togarashi Seed and Nut Blend on a bed of PC® Organics Roasted Garlic Hummus
- Vegan Tiramisu featuring PC® Dairy-Free Plain Cultured Coconut Milk Probiotic Yogurt Alternative and PC® Dairy-Free Kefir Probiotic Fermented Coconut Milk
“Plant-based cooking doesn’t need to be overwhelming, especially with all of the newest options available right at the grocery store that will help food lovers reinvent their holiday favourites,” says Chef Craig Harding, executive chef and owner at La Palma and Constantine in Toronto. “Taking some of my favourite recipes and putting a plant-based twist on them was incredibly easy, especially with the broad range of PC® Plant-Based products.”
As Canadians plan their menus for a busy season of holiday entertaining, the PC® brand is stocking shelves with new additions to the quickly growing PC® Plant-Based line-up of products. To make the PC® Plant-Based products easily identifiable, the line’s unique branding includes a clearly marked Plant-Based logo. Plant-based products will be dispersed throughout the store, alongside traditional products reinforcing the PC® brand’s commitment to offering Canadians variety when it comes to grocery shopping for items that suit their lifestyle and dietary preferences.
PC® Plant-Based products are now available at Loblaw stores across Canada, including Loblaws®, No Frills®, and Real Canadian Superstore®.
