Trinity Irish Pub's first annual Burns Dinner was a complete success!  Join us for a run down of the fair Scotches and Scottish fare that we enjoyed on January 24, 2012.

This week's episode is a day early for Halloween!  We discuss the delicious food at a reputedly haunted pub, Halloween's origins and different foods associated with it as well as other holidays that offer food to the dead.  More pictures to come!

    We like to think of ourselves as being culinary adventurous, but travel costs a lot of money, so until we get a radio or TV show we have to make due with the magic of books to transport us to exotic edibles and forbidden foods.  Tom's book (believe us, Mr. Bowles, it's better we refer to you informally in the show so we'll stop butchering your last name) is just the ticket to reading about dishes that you could only imagine yourself eating (or not eating).

    Long overdue, here is part one of many episodes about cheese. We give a basic primer on tasting, pairing and varieties of cheese.  So, don't be shy, grab some cheese!

    These are but a few websites about cheese making:

    The Good Fare and Cheer of Old England is a book we discovered at the Orillia Library.  We loved it so much we bought a copy, and felt it needed it's own ZFC show to spread the word about how great a book it is!  We are going to look into the copyright information (so far it looks like it has not been renewed and has fallen into Public Domain), so we are also going to work on creating an Audiobook version of it.

    Unfortunately, for the last few weeks, the Zwei Fat Chicks have had the flu and were unable to record.

    Fortunately, we have an unreleased snack to placate you with! We incorrectly refer to the show as "Clarissa and the King's Table" - it is actually "Clarissa and the King's Cookbook" and we found an educational site that you can watch the video on for free:

    Forgive the lateness of this episode, but moving really put us behind schedule.  We'll try to make it up with a ZFC Snack this week though.  Without further ado, art imitating life - food in games!

    Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food meet in the middle and produce some tasty dishes, as well as overlaps in culture.  You'll find many Greek/Lebanese/Turkish/Macedonian/Exotic restaurants in most major cities.  This episode is devoted to Mediterranean/Middle Eastern restaurants that are dear to our hearts - from the feta to falafels, grape leaves to gyros!
