Food

  • Taking appropriation out of the recipe

    The cookbook is a fixture of the kitchen as much as any edible ingredient. A new exhibit at the PLATFORM Centre for Photographic and Digital Arts asks those who use the culinary tomes to engage with other cultures to consider their impact and authority.

  • Faspa brings slow food home

    If the Mennonite world had a particular scent, faspa would be its signature fragrance.

  • Aloha means goodbye, among other things

    Over the past year, downtown denizens encountered a microcosm of tropic island life – the more luxurious parts, anyway – while walking past the Royal Albert Arms Hotel.

    Nearly a decade after nine guys decided to open the Good Will Social Club, the beloved venue will take a final bow on Feb. 1.

  • Winnipeg gets a little greener

    Craft-beer production uses and creates a lot of carbon dioxide (CO2), but a new carbon-recapture system could help local breweries reduce their greenhouse-gas emissions.

  • Here comes a regular

    The atmosphere at Supercaffeinated and Primo’s Deli, located in the Good Will Social Club, stands in stark contrast to the ubiquitous look of typical third-wave coffee shops, characterized by minimalism and pastels. Supercaffeinated is darker, louder and, frankly, more fun.

  • On the darker, snarky side of life

    In a city awash with craft fairs and flea markets, someone new is trying something a little different.

  • Hunger is the mother of invention

    It may be a long time until a Manitoba-style restaurant opens abroad.

  • Arts editor’s guide to autumn

    I’ve always felt that autumn is far more indicative of a new year than Jan. 1.

    For the first time since 2003, I’m not returning to school in September. From preschool to the final semester of my undergraduate degree, the yellowing of the leaves marked the beginning of my studies. Though I’m no longer hitting the books, it remains a time of change and regrowth.

    I like to colour each season with art, music and recipes to measure time passing. Here are a few things colouring my autumn.

  • An alternative to security

    Winnipeg’s Community Safety Hosts program is an alternative to traditional police and security services that’s rooted in community support, empathy and training.

  • Arts briefs

    What le funk is up?// Indigenous artisans welcome spring// Hot soup, warm hearts// On the rock// Learn the Victorian way// ‘All the world is a very narrow bridge’

  • Dreamland is a wish your stomach makes

    The next time hunger strikes near west Portage Avenue, dream a little dream of meat.

  • We all pay a price

    Sayings like “the bigger the dream, the harder the grind” and “hustle, don’t sleep” echo the toxic productivity ingrained in Canada’s cultural consciousness.

  • ‘Wouldn’t it be funny if we’ started a restaurant?

    Despite its meme-laden aesthetic, South Osborne’s Hoagie Boyz restaurant creates unironically delicious classic Italian subs that are simultaneously approachable and extravagant.
