Part drink. Part appetizer. All Canadian.
Shake up Canada’s most popular cocktail, the Caesar. Known for its multitude of garnishes, our version adds delicious grilled halloumi and pineapple. The drink itself gets a Mexican twist with potent tequila, fresh lime juice and jalapeño hot sauce. Serve at cocktail hour or at your weekend brunch for a drink that’s part sweet, part heat, and all spicy fun.

The flavours of summer, all wrapped up.
Fajita night is always popular. It combines the flavours of summer with the sensory experience of eating with your hands. Our Honey Chipotle Sheet Pan Fajitas feature sizzling veggies, tender flank steak, sour cream, and creamy chipotle cheese. And unlike other fajita recipes, it can all be prepared on only two pans. Weekend simplicity at its finest.

When small potatoes are kind of a big deal.
Our Creamy Herb Grilled Potato Salad is a must-have for picnics, patios, and garden dining. The satisfying taste and texture of grilled baby potatoes meets the crunch of celery and radish, while fresh parsley and Gold Sour Cream give this salad a bright, herbaceous flavour. Light and delicious, it’s a nice change from traditional mayonnaise-based salads.

Turns out you can please everyone.
Sour cream is the ultimate barbecue sidekick, and everyone should be able to enjoy it. That’s why we offer a lactose-free sour cream, plus Hewitt’s goat sour cream for those who are sensitive to cow’s milk. Both are rich and creamy and taste incredible on baked potatoes, in your favourite recipes, or as a cool dip for vegetables or chips.
