To re-iterate, Jenn and I had great fun and enjoyed our dishes. We shared the cod tongues and pickerel cheeks appetizers. I had the Jigg’s dinner for my main and figgy Duff, lassy mogs, and jam jams for dessert. Jenn, the rabbit stew and the Newfie pound cake for dessert.

Also, after we posted the entry, Melissa Dimock of Refashionista (@refashionista) exclaimed on Twitter how familiar she was with the dishes served. She even forwarded me a link to her Great Grandmother’s recipe for Molasses Cookies. She, a maritimer hailing from Nova Scotia, says they make great jam jams.

I think jam jams using Melissa’s Great Grandmother’s cookies will be this year’s Christmas cookie. Stay tuned for my attempt :)

Mild-mannered IT professional by day and food blogger by night, I founded foodiePrints with a single intention, to share my love of all things food. My first post shared a recipe. Many followed. Eventually, I learned Ottawa prepares and serves great food. Thereafter, I started meeting restaurateurs, chefs, cooks, farmers, and other local producers, all good people. Ideas for food-related content swirled in my head. foodiePrints grew into a place to put them. From exploring foreign and domestic cuisines to shopping for exotic ingredients and cobbling together my takes on dishes in my meager kitchen, there are stories to tell. Welcome to foodiePrints. Here, you will find stories about food and drink, cooking, and eating in Canada’s capital. Be it food-related or just food-for-thought, I hope you find something tasty here.
