Winter’s nearly over (we hope!) and it’s almost time for planting. So to help with the planning and to get the most out of your edible garden from seed to supper, ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen has released a brand new digital cookbook, “Grow Gather Graze” – and it’s available for free!

The new digital book includes gardening guides for all Albertans, with gardening tips and resources from the Calgary Horticultural Society to help your garden flourish. There are step-by-step guides on how to plan and maintain your edible garden, how to start an indoor or outdoor herb garden, How to dry or freeze excess herbs, and how to store your garden harvest. And there are 14 recipes for soups, salads, mains and desserts, such as Zucchini, Barley and Sausage Soup, Herb & Lemon Pork Chops with Basil and Pumpkin Seed Pesto, and Rhubarb and Raspberry Crumble.

Congratulations to family-owned food business, Great West Italian Importers, on their 60th anniversary on April 1st! Founded by Alberto and Christina Iamartino in 1958, we know the two divisions as The Italian Store (the retail end), and Scarpone’s Quality Italian Foods, who import products from all over the world, and as you’ve seen in supermarkets across the country, have their own brand too. Today the companies are still owned and operated by Iamartino’s daughters and their families. What a great success story!
