Repost via @wckitchengarden - Apples from our little tree ๐ŸŽ I have one small espaliered apple tree and it has been loaded with apples every year. Apples grow so well on Vancouver Island and most are quite resistant to disease making them a very rewarding crop to grow. Many types of apples also store really well- simply sort out any bad, bruised or bug eaten ones and store the rest in a cool place like a garage. You can wrap or layer them with newspaper to help prevent any spoiling ones from spoiling the rest. (Youโ€™ve heard the saying, โ€œone bad apple spoils the bunchโ€? Well itโ€™s true) Off I go to pick and preserve!

Fabulous and interesting dinner @wildebeestyvr , low lighting affected my pictures but not the taste! Roasted bone marrow with mushrooms and leeks Smoked olives (AMAZING even better than expected) Foie grad Deviled eggs Scallops with apple and black pudding Ravioli with mushrooms and truffles Bison Flat Iron Wagyu rigatoni We also tried the togarashi chicken and the wagyu carpaccio. This place is delicious. So good, so creative with friendly helpful staff and an interesting well thought out wine list. Weโ€™ll be back!!! And you should try it too ๐Ÿ˜‹ . . . . . #yvreats #yvrfoodie #vancouvereats #wildebeest #favouritemeal #birthdaymonth #canadianfoodblogger #f52grams #thekitchn #thefeedfeed #creativefood #bonapetit #foodblogger #foodbloggersofcanada #fbc #youvegottaeathere #bcisbest #eatbc #eatdrinkbuybc #ediblevancouver #ediblecanada #restaurantreview #bestrestaurant #pnweats #westcoasteats

Iโ€™ve been washing A LOT of mushrooms from my weekend foraging and hereโ€™s how some of them met their fate-๐Ÿ„risotto Recipe will be up on the blog tomorrow PS. I donโ€™t always wash my mushrooms with water but with all the rain, these were pretty dirty. In drier weather they often can just be brushed off #mushroomrisotto #wildmushrooms #chanterelles . . . . . #wildfood #foragedfood #foraging #mushroomhunting #chanterelle #risotto #pnwfood #westcoastfood #westcoastwild #pnwlife #vanislelife #vanisle #vancouverislandlife #vancouverislandfood #ediblevanisle #fbcigers #canadianfood #canadianfoodblogger #mushroomlover #eatdrinkbuybc #buybc #bcisbest #ediblecanada
