It's that time again

The President’s Choice Insider’s Report is back with its summertime edition, which includes a roundup of new products. I have to say, even though I don’t usually shop at Loblaw’s seeing as I walk to the Metro in my area (when not grabbing provisions from my local farmers markets, cheese shop, butcher, baker and candlestick maker), I do have a soft spot for the Insider’s Report because it reminds me of the 1980s, when I was coming of age as a person, and Toronto was coming of age in a culinary sense. (Remember Memories of Szechwan? That was only the beginning.)

Some of the more intriguing new products in the flyer include their New World extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) from Chile, Blue Menu’s frozen sustainable wild Pacific cod filets, PC Smoked Paprika marinade, and here’s a no-brainer for summer entertaining; a balsamic reduction glaze, using the real stuff from Modena.

I know they show it accenting meat on the label, but for me this screams out for fresh tomatoes, bocconcini and basil.

And you know what this photo screams out for? A manicure! Look at how dry my thumb looks!

I have been looking for Haloomi cheese and was surprised to find it in the Insider's Report. I cut it into half inch slices drizzled with EVOO and PC ground grilling spices.I then grilled it for 1 - 1.5min per side over med-high grill.Delicious with a great texture(squeaky!!)

Great idea! Pair it with a grilled portobello, smack them between a sesame seed bun and the veggies in the crowd can eat alongside the cheeseburger lovers.
