Cocktails with Wolf & Grouse

For the second year in a row, I didn’t really go anywhere this summer. It was one of those things… because of COVID, it was a challenge to go anywhere on a plane. We were being encouraged to stay home. As a result, anything “local”

It was all going so well… vaccines are being rolled out, progress is being made… And then infection rates soared to the highest they’ve been ever. Ever. Here in BC, that’s lead to a partial lockdown. In addition to all the restrictions we had before,

Yep, it’s fall. Like, aggressively fall. The leaves are gone off the trees, and the golden days of October are behind us, with nothing but rain and cold and dark ahead of us for the next few months. This is the part of the year

Christmas Eve Fondue

I’m sure all of you have your own family-centric holiday traditions. Well, one of mine is a Christmas Eve fondue. I do love to fondue… I mean, c’mon, what’s not to like? Lovely, soft pieces of bread, dipped into warm, gooey cheese. You really can’t
