Hey friends, I’ve decided to start a new series (or two 🙂 – hint hint) on Inspired by Nick, to cover some cool events that happen across the city so that I can pass along some of the inspiration that’s been passed along to me! This one comes from a company that I visit weekly, that has a place in my home, and in my belly 😉 – Loblaws & President’s Choice!
In covering some of the events that I get to attend in Toronto, I think it will be a great way for me to share some of the sneak peeks and previews that I’m fortunate enough to see! For example, at the President’s Choice Summer Soiree, I got to try a bunch of yummy new bites and recipes, all great for summer and all easy for all of you to whip up for yourselves and your families!
Have a look at some of the products and meals they were featuring in their summer bites throughout the night, including their spicy sriracha mayo, grilled jalapenos, slow smoked brisket beef burgers, kent mangos… and their delicious lemonade mojito popsicles! Later in the evening we got to hear from chef Rob Rossi (owner and chef at Bestellen, and featured on Top Chef Canada) who shared some summer food and recipe inspiration for us all to take home with us. I happen to enjoy preparing meals that are easy to make, like many of you I’m sure, and that was my big takeaway.
The featured plates were so simple, yet so good, which is perfect for summer!
I’ve mentioned before that S & I, are big fans of President’s Choice. Some of their products are hands down our favorite items to buy (and eat, obviously) when we do our groceries. Here are some of our favs, just to name a few:
- Sweet with Heat Mustard (goes great with a nice charcuterie or cheese board!)
- Chicken Wellington (which, come to think of it, seems impossible to find nowadays)
- PC Black Label Sour Cream & Roasted Garlic Mini Wafers
- The Air Chilled Organic Whole Chicken
I hope you enjoy browsing through some of the photos from the night (they’re courtesy of Loblaws and President’s Choice). Oh and that reminds me – Those cocktails! The one on the left is called “The Mango Hurricane” and it was to dieeeee for! It was in my opinion, the perfect backyard bbq cocktail for entertaining guests! I’ll get you the recipe soon – don’t you worry!
I’m happy to share with you that over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing EVERY recipe from the meals that were served at this PC Summer event on the Inspired by Nick Recipes section, under “Food Inspiration”.
That’s over 15 recipes for your summer meal planning! Courtesy of Loblaws & President’s Choice!
So get ready for some MAJOR food inspo coming your way! My Recipes section will feature a combination of my own recipes, my Vegetable of the Week Series and summer food inspo from President’s Choice & Loblaws!
