Food Finds

As an enthusiastic foodie, I’m always on the hunt for unique imported or local ingredients. There used to be a time when it was difficult to find ingredients such as squid ink, cocktail bitters, grape leaves, harissa, sushi rice, local garlic, etc. Now, there are all sorts of markets in Calgary selling almost any ingredient you could ever want. Here are a few of my favourites:

Italian Centre Shop

Italian Store

Basha Foods International 

T & T Supermarket

A Mart 

The Silk Road Spice Merchant

Avenida Food Hall & Market

Calgary Farmer’s Market

Crossroads Farmer’s Market

Happy Shopping!

      Hello Sheena, the only canned fish recipe I have on the blog is the preparation I make prior to making my family’s fish pie. I don’t recommend using it to can fish for a great length of time unless you are using a pressure canner. This recipe is good if you want to preserve fish, then refrigerate it for a week or so.
