The Angry Urchin: Greater St. John’s Greatest New Restaurant?


A brain tumour, a weekend with a celebrity chef, and 2 well-decorated chef brothers reuniting in, of all places, Portugal Cove, Newfoundland. These seemingly unrelated events have blended together to cook up what might become greater St. John’s greatest new restaurant. You can go be the judge of that yourself when they open June 2nd.

Nan’s Kitchen: Steamed Blueberry Pudding w/ Brown Sauce


Nothing says Sunday dinner at my Nan’s like Blueberry Pudding. It was there without fail every time. And it was gobbled by the whole lot of us at the end of every gathering. Drizzled in the sweetest, warmest “brown sauce” and occasionally topped with some Fussel’s canned cream (for those who are so inclined). To me, the pudding was home, and more “Newfoundland” than a feed of scrunchions or fish and chips I ever came across.
