Don't get me started! Montreal truly is an amazing place for food. Even Steve Shaw, one of the NY Times food editor's agrees! He raved about Montreal's food in a NY Times article a few years ago, and on his website. Sadly his site no longer exists, but I did save page captures.
Never mind. What with a Romanian-Jewish culinary tradition, mixed in with Greek restaurant ownership for the last 40 years (the Greeks have an excellent culinary history BTW), plus good ol' Gallic love of food - what's not to love?
But never mind the high-end restaurants (of which Montreal has legion), I'm really raving about the "casse-croutes", snack-bars, steamed hot-dog joints, Greek souvlaki joints, (both of which are ubiquitous), Montreal style steak subs (to die for), and Montreal pizzas - you have a plethora of cheap, but good eats all over town.
I'm getting hungry for a Dilallo's Hamburger, right now! ;-)
mmmm...depends on the situation..right now....toast with marmite yum!
OMG Ed that looks amazing. I always loved eating in Montreal when I used to visit my ex's sister & family there in the 80's...
He forgot to add pectin. Pectin makes it gel up.
One summer when I was a kid my father tried to make blackberry jam with berries we had picked. He boiled them up but they never jelled, so we made vanilla yogurt, mixed in the blackberry soup, and froze it. It was delicious.
TigerLilly, Thanks for the pizza sauce recipe. I love a good home-made pizza! I also love Pendeli's Pizzas, so that recipe is particularly interesting to me!
Pendeli's Pizza, in Montreal, has been using anise in their sauce for years! They are the most popular pizza joint in Montreal, BTW. Their pizza's are to die for!
"Pendeli’s was next – my choice. A friend had raved about it and others had confirmed his opinion. This one, another delivery, was an awesome beast: the “Pendeli’s Special”, all dressed plus onions, olives, anchovies and bacon. My countertop positively groaned. “This is more like it,” Adrian said finally, having “taste-tested” two eighth-sized slices." -
You can get most things English in Ireland, Coleman's is a famous Brand, as is Lea and Perrin's Worcestershire sauce-
