Pioineer Beef BBq on a Bun

Beef BBQ on a Bun Back when my dad worked at the Iroquois Hotel during the 50’s, it was a very busy hotel and known for its good food. A lot of kitchen help was needed and a lot of the area mom’s filled the many positions as cooks and restaurant help. As the decades changed a lot of the ladies were trained to be good cooks and carried on cooking in other Galt/Preston/Hespeler restaurant kitchens. They were the one’s responsible for cooking up good fare in places like The Knotty Pine, Preston Pioneer BBQ, Moffat’s, Breslau and numerous other dinning establishments...

Crab and Artichoke Dijonnaise.

Crab and Artichoke Dijonnaise.

A most scrumptious salad when you want to impress. I took the time to prepare the artichoke hearts and found that the labor and time needed was made simple this time by using a whole preserved heart. They taste pretty close to fresh especially if you choose a well-known brand or pick the needed amount from your deli. Everything in this recipe should be …a fresh and tasty.

Shanghai Dining Wok.

Shanghai Dining Wok.

                  When thekitchenman has had a long day, I like takeout Chinese stir fry dishes. We have many choices of Asian restaurants here in South Surrey and surrounding Vancouver and it’s growing daily. I like the simple sweet and sour pork, or the pot stickers. The soups are very well made. The wonton and seafood are yummy. The Shanghai Noodle with spicy pork is my fav. For the last several years, I have found this neighborhood jewel of a restaurant call the Shanghai Dining Wok. The owners take good care of...
