Bookers BBQ Grill and Crab Shack Calgary, AB - delicious smoked ribs, chicken, brisket and snow crab!

Inside this century-old brick warehouse, Bookers BBQ and Crab Shack is a hidden gem - literally and figuratively... driven by this place countless times over the years and we tried them a while back to celebrate my boyfriend's brother's birthday with Southern cooking. There's live music every Friday and Saturday night and the place was packed and hopping when we arrived.. its a darn good thing we had reservations!

Denmark in a day (or 3!) - Copenhagen - Food lovers dream come true - Torvehallerne KBH Farmer's market and Israels Plads outdoor produce stalls Part 3!

In our 5 part series that covered the few days we had eating and exploring Copenhagen, Denmark.. we covered in Part 1 - hotdogs, icecream and snacks, Part 2 - Smørrebrøds of Copenhagen - Aamann's and Restaurant Schønnemanns! and now.. its a foodie's dream come true.. the Torvehallerne KBH Farmer's market and Israels Plads outdoor produce stalls!! Near and dear to the hearts of all local food lovers is their farmer's market. We loved it and it was easy to find just as you get off the Nørreport Station.  Its called Torvehallerne KBH (Address Frederiksborggade 21, 1360 København K) and it has the Israels Plads outdoor produce stalls right beside!

Tzin Wine and Tapas Edmonton, AB - amazing food, drinks and dessert - the bacon made me forget my name lol!

Lots of my friends have raved about Tzin since it opened and finally had a chance to try it out a few months ago (yes, I know - really need to work on putting up posts sooner!).  But lets get onto the food!

Denmark in a day (or 3!) - Copenhagen - Smørrebrøds! Aamann's and Restaurant Schønnemann Part 2!

In our 5 part series that covered the few days we had eating and exploring Copenhagen, Denmark.. we covered in Part 1 - hotdogs, icecream and snacks, and now its on to the Smørrebrøds! Smørrebrøds are delicious open faced sandwiches with local, traditional ingredients on a slice of (usually) rye bread and served with subtle and knock your socks off homemade schnapps!  While there's probably hundreds of places to have Smørrebrøds in Copenhagen, with limited travel time and tummy space, we focused on the two best places to eat it... Michelin Guide-recommended Aaman's which has a more modern spin thanks to Chef Adam Aamann and his team (Address: Øster Farimagsgade 10, 2100 København Ø ), and Restaurant Schønnemann, serving traditional fare since 1877 (Address: Hauser Plads 16, 1127 København K).  Since "best" is very subjective, we had to try them both.. for comparison's sake :)
