GOODLY FOODS CENTRE STAGE AT THE VANCOUVER FALL HOME SHOW
This past weekend we were thrilled to be featured on the Fulgor Milano Cooking Stage at the Vancouver Fall Home Show where Chef Karen Barnaby and our very own Alexa Pitoulis, GM for Goodly Foods, took centre stage on October 20th at 2pm. Ahead of their presentation was Chef Bruno Feldeisen, well known Pastry Chef and a judge on CBC’s much loved “Great Canadian Baking Show”.
We are grateful to Nicole-Ann Poitras, the Cooking Stage Manager, who arranged for us to have this amazing opportunity to talk about Goodly Foods while also spreading the word around reducing food waste. We had an impressive turnout with the best and most engaged audience!
Chef Barnaby wowed everyone with her “kitchen sink salad” using left overs from her fridge, Moroccan-Style Carrot Slaw using less than perfect carrots, and her delicious Carrot, Apple and Miso Dressing. She made it all look so easy, even using roasted grapes…which provided a lovely unexpected texture and flavour to the salad. The final result was a beautifully composed salad which four lucky audience members were able to enjoy after the presentation.
The recipes for the salad dressing and the carrot salad have been generously shared by Chef Barnaby. What you use for the “kitchen sink salad” will depend on what is in your fridge (don’t know about you but I plan to start having roasted grapes in mine). Keep in mind that Chef Barnaby’s dressing is one that works better with what she calls “robust” vegetables (a little heavier than typical spring salad mix).
