Niagara Food Festival – please roll me home…

What a great festival this was again this year! There were some new vendors this year that I was not expecting to see, and others that I was sad to not see there.

Sadly I was a bit too busy eating to take photos this year but I did get enough to warrant a post lol 🙂

Dain City French Toast

There is a small town in Ontario that I frequent from time to time.  Dain City.  Had some French Toast there once.  This is the story of that French Toast.

Here is what you need to make these sick French  Toasts.

  • 2 cups of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • a few tablespoons of cinnamon
  • an awesome stick of bread that is about 2 days old (mine was courtesy of Lucas at Spinosa’s for the Spinosa Stick)
  • tiny whisk
  • bowl
  • frying pan
  • maybe some things i forgot but will remember as we go on….

Lay it out all nice on a cutting board and admire it. Maybe take a selfie with the ingredients and post them in the comments.

Niagara Craft Beer Festival

Had no real plans to stop by this event but hunger drew us in.  Having just went to a Motorcycle Show & Shine, then a Custom Car show we sort of worked up an appetite.

Geographically there was not much around but I remembered about the Craft Beer Festival that a few of my friends had talked about.

  • It was downtown.
  • It had beer.
  • It had food.
  • It had an admission.

At the gate I mentioned I was writing for a Lifestyle blog.   The doors swung open for us.  Excellent.

Every Saturday my town has a food market. Local farmers and vendors.

You cannot beat the quality, freshness and awesomeness of buying from a local market.

Canadian Coke Churros

Holy crap.

These were amazing. My first thought when i saw what these were called I was, “what the crap is that?”

The slight difference is that the recipe i hijacked and modified this from used Mexican Coke. Can’t get that in Canada.

Let’s get to it.

What do you need?

  • 3 cups of Coca-Cola from Canada
  • 6 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of Vanilla
  • 3.25 cups of Bisquick

I think that is it.

So first thing you want to do is boil 3 cups of Coke.

Lipstick on a pig

Or as I sometimes call it Mac-a-laya.  Low budget fanciness.

When you have a few nice ingredients and a few crappy ones you have to make the best of it.

I came up with this recipe in College.  My friend Tony and I would eat this steady.

What do you need?

  • A box of White Macaroni & Cheese
  • Some sausage links
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Oregano
  • Garlic
  • A sweet onion
  • A bit of Olive Oil
  • Little bit of Milk
  • Scoop of butter

Start off by squeezing your garlic through a press. Or chop it. Whatever you prefer.

Grilled Cheese w/Chicken Tenders & Bacon and a side of Heston Blumenthal Chips

I came across 2 dishes this past week that really caught my fancy; I knew I had to make them and make them fast.

Had the  perfect opportunity yesterday. I.E. a few hours to kill.

These fries looked amazing.  But when you think of fries you think of opening a bag, tossing them on a tray and into the oven, or you think of deep frying potatoes.  You don’t think that fries will have a prep time of 3 hours. This intrigued me and made me want to give them a try.

The fries were going to take the majority of the time so I started on them first.

Peeled, cut and rinsed the potatoes. I used Russett potatoes. I like them.  Don’t cut them too big and try to cut  them the same size so they cook evenly.

Rinse them off until the water is clear.
