Newsmaker of the Year

These continue to be challenging times for fruit growers in the Okanagan. And what is for many the signature brand of our region, the tree fruit industry, which brings thousands of tourists to the Okanagan every year to buy fresh fruit to take home, it has been a controversial year. Whether that controversy—which included the resignation of B.C. Tree Fruit Growers Associatio president Kirpal Boparai, the dismissal of the top executive of the B.C. Tree Fruits Cooperative along with much backroom and public fingerpointing and heated debate—is a bumpy segment towards positive change of a struggling agriculture industry remains to be seen. For what has happened these past 12 months and the potential it creates for future change, the Capital News has chosen the tree fruit industry as the Newsmaker of the Year for 2012. See story on A3

Newsmaker of the Year

“The bottom line is I’m always interested in growers. I’m the first president (of the B.C. Tree Fruit Growers Association ) who stood up to the co-op. The old ways don’t work anymore.”

—Kirpal Boparai

It has been a turbulent year of change in the Okanagan fruit growing industry, which has seen the B.C.Tree Fruit Growers Association president resign and the top executive with the OkanaganTree Fruit Cooperative dismissed from his post . Judie Steeves STAFF REPORTER

The past year was a turbulent one for the orchard industry in the Okanagan. It began with members of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association electing their first East Indian president, despite the fact that an estimated half of the growers have their ethnic roots in that culture. The 123-year-old organization elected Kelowna’s Kirpal Boparai at its January convention over Kelowna orchardist Fred Steele, who was the incumbent vice-president. Incumbent president Joe Sardinha did not run for election, opting to retire from the executive after 11 years, seven of them in the top post. Elected vice-president was Vernon grower Jeet Dukhia, a newcomer to the long-time lobby group’s executive. In their speeches to members leading up to the election, both men called on government to help growers out more. However, in tight fiscal times such as these, when the B.C. government’s repeated mantra is restraint so the province can balance its budget, it was obvious that would be swimming against the current. Despite that, in the spring, the province did announce a long-awaited extension to the replant program for growers, an assistance program for those interested in investing in modernizing their orchards to increase returns. But, it was an announcement that had been expected since before the BCFGA election. Then, in late summer, the main co-op packinghouse, the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative, expelled Boparai for failing to live up to the terms of his contract, and shipping his apples to an independent packer instead of the co-op he was a member of. In October, at the annual general

meeting of that co-op, one of the 300 or so growers attending proposed a resolution calling on the co-op to stop checking off BCFGA dues from members until the BCFGA removed Boparai from the top post and it was approved. However, the co-op executive declined to deal with that resolution, and neither organization is required to deal with it. Boparai only attended two of the four regional grower meetings held throughout the valley in November, but when nominated for re-election to the BCFGA board, he declined, and in December he announced his intent to resign from the top post. Vice-president Dukhia took over until January’s convention. He has also been nominated by growers for president, as has Steele. Change has been in the wind for the co-op as well, with two long-time board members rejected in their bids for re-election in favour of newcomers. It’s the second year in a row that’s happened, so there are a majority of relatively-new faces around the board table. Then, at the first meeting of the new board, chief executive officer Gary Schieck was replaced by Alan Tyabji. Several other top executives were also let go, as Tyabji promised a new direction for the co-op, which is an amalgamation of the valley’s four major co-operative packinghouses. That occurred four years ago. Both Schieck and Tyabji had headed up operations at one of those packinghouses before the amalgamation. The bright spot in the past year for apple growers was increased prices this year due to a disastrous frost in eastern North America last spring that decimated their crops this fall.

ding Cake Design. “Placing second as Best Wedding Cake Design in all of British Columbia is a huge accomplishment and it is great that the Okanagan was recognized in the Professional B.C. Wedding Awards,” Garratt said. “There are so many great pastry chefs in British Columbia and to be (considered) among the best in British Columbia in Wedding Cake design is really exciting, it was a great way to end the very busy 2012 wedding season.” Also before Christmas, Garratt competed in the 2012 Gingerbread Competition held at the Parkinson Recreation Centre. The event is a fundraiser for the Central Okanagan Boys and Girls Club. “We entered in the chef category. Going up against some of the large pastry kitchens here in the valley was daunting and I knew that if I was going to do this I was going to go all in and spare no expense or time.” After three weeks of continuous work and more than 75 lbs of gingerbread the re-created “North Pole” was complete. Garratt’s gingerbread creation ended up chosen as the best entry in her category. “There were a lot of amazing displays at the competition and is honored to be chosen as the winner for 2012,” Garratt said. Garratt’s North Pole entry is now on display at the Okanagan Hospice House.

Minority government possible?

T

he provincial election on May 14 will be the seminal event of 2013, affecting almost everything political between now and election day. After the election, which all polls over the past two years indicate the NDP will win, there will be further turmoil instigated by opposing special interest groups. While many are unhappy with the B.C. Liberals right now, the reality is many of those voters won’t cast a ballot for

the NDP. Some may back the troubled B.C. Conservatives, some may stick with the Liberals to avoid electing an NDP government, and some may decide to not vote. But there also could be another outcome—a minority government, likely headed by NDP leader Adrian Dix if the polls right now don’t change much. How is a minority government possible? It’s most likely if the three sitting independent MLAs are returned to Victoria.

If all three—Vicki Huntington, John van Dongen and Bob Simpson—are re-elected, and there are three seats or less separating the NDP and Liberals, the independents will hold the balance of power. Parties need 43 seats for a majority. The BC Conservatives and Greens could also elect an MLA or two, although at this stage, neither party appears to have enough momentum to actually win a seat. The gap between the NDP and Liberals will likely tighten

as the election campaign nears and then unfolds. If that trend continues, and the Liberals manage to convince some of their former supporters to come back on election day, the results could be much closer than current polls indicate. The three independents have positive public profiles and are doing credible work, so they along with perhaps a few Green or Conservative MLAs could be elected. A minority government can’t be ruled out.

FUTURE SHOP – Correction Notice

Focus shift needed to stop shootings To the editor: With everyone weighing in on the recent gut-wrenching massacre of school children, many well meaning solutions are being offered. The loudest and most vocal seem to be the proponents of gun control/ banning of guns entirely, etc. as the way forward. Although access to firearms by untrained and irresponsible users is definitely part of the problem, the psyche of the person with their finger on the trigger needs scrutiny. With the two most recent examples, the Portland mall and the Newtown school, and even Columbine and further back the Dunblane, Scotland and Montreal school shootings, the perpetrators had much in common.  They were troubled loners, spending too much time alone with  access to

violent  video games and had evident trouble interacting with peers in normal life situations. Although we cannot delve into the lives of individual households, the warning signs do manifest themselves and the most recent situation where the killer convinced himself to act out his Tour of Duty (a violent and bloody fantasy video) is a prime example. The blame for this tragedy is layered and starts with the manufacturers of the video and others like it.  The retailers who stock their shelves with this trash are also implicated as is the mother who indulged her son and failed to monitor his activities, perhaps using the video games as an erstwhile babysitter,… is also in the frame.  She was also the per-

son who failed to keep her firearms properly secured in a home gun safe and allowed the killer access to fulfilling his warped perception of reality. With our present lax legislation regulating this type of “entertainment,” it is inevitable that the levels of violence will escalate.  Our children are now being subjected to violence as a norm—cage fighting, violent onscreen fantasy combat scenarios etc.  Many sit at the dinner table tapping away on their iPhones, Blackberrys etc. with the parents not aware of what they are engaged in…. the give and take of dinner conversation (which allows for airing of daily experiences, problems they are having. etc) being missed or overlooked. To pillory firearms as the problem is tantamount to blaming (and banning)

the puck for concussions and other injuries.  The greatest majority of firearms owners are in fact responsible, hard working contributors to society who have earned the right to own and use a firearm. After the Dunblane shooting in Scotland almost 20 years ago, legislation was drafted which  denied public ownership of firearms. This left the police the military, street gangs and triads only with access to them. The level of gun violence has escalated ever since and the British “Bobby” now carries an armalite machine gun, not a whistle and nightstick. So much for gun control. We in Canada have recently undergone a similar program where we recently scrapped the longgun registry.

Those who howled in alarm about the pending maelstrom of shootings, where deflated, when it did not occur. As mentioned those who use firearms responsibly for hunting, Olympic events, etc. are not the problem. Of note, Canada presently has 13 gun control laws on the books, handgun legislation was introduced in 1938 and is still enforced. Until the microscope of scrutiny is focused on the pied piper designers of what our children crave, what our children are doing in their spare time, what they are watching and allowed to access from their electronic leashes, sadly, we can expect more of the same.

▼ LAKE COUNTRY

Food bank campaign progressing Gathering of friends and Thanks to the generosity of Lake Country residents, corporate and other donations, the fundraising goal for a new food bank building in Lake Country are progressing extremely well. The Rotary Club of Lake Country is spearheading the community effort to build a new, permanent home for the Lake Country Food Bank. The Central Okanagan Foundation recently announced its contribution of $12,000 towards the Food Bank Building Fund while contributions from the public are over $20,000.

Rotarian and MLA for Kelowna-Lake Country, Norm Letnick personally contributed $10,000 to help kick off the project. The District of Lake Country has dedicated land at the Recreational Complex on Bottom Wood Lake Road as the new site. “The land value and in-kind commitment of donated materials and labour mean that we are half way to reaching our goal,” said Monika Jatel, with the Lake Country Rotary Club. “With a little more help from the community, the Rotary Club of Lake Country is looking forward to building a permanent

home for the food bank.” Currently the food bank is staffed by volunteers and services more than 500 clients each month. The current temporary location is a 100 year old school, formerly Winfield Elementary and the it is too small for the current operation. The community is now being encouraged to dig deep and help with the rest of the fundraising. Coin donation boxes can be found at businesses throughout the community with Interior Savings Credit Union in Lake Country being the main collection point for this effort..

Tuition Free Bar, Wine and Service Industry Training The Bar and Wine Program is designed to provide unemployed individuals looking to work in the service and hospitality industry with the necessary training and certification to provide excellence in service to their customers. to be eligible for this tuitioN FRee training, applicants must be: • Unemployed • Not attached to Employment Insurance • Legally entitled to work in Canada • A resident of British Columbia • Not be a student (ie. enrolled in high school or other post-secondary training) • Not participating in another LMA funded program Starting January 7, 2013 in Kelowna.

HODGE PODGE

Charlie Hodge hail from different cultural and social backgrounds and left their teenage and young adult sphere a while back. Like most of us, all three have had their share of joy and heartbreak in their lives, and had to work hard and/or struggle through multiple challenges and changes. For TJ the past year has been particularly testing. The spirit of Christmas had the entire household in a joyful and ruckus uproar of laughter and fellowship almost immediately after the guests arrived, assisted somewhat I suppose by the hot apple-cider brandy concoction Tez had created. Just when I was thinking things could not get a whole heck of a lot better the phone rang. On the other end of the phone was my nephew Andrew, a special young man whom my wife suggests is actually my long lost son I never had. As luck would have it, Andrew had wound up unexpectedly in Kelowna for two days—and was more than pleased to tuck into a turkey dinner at our house. So, not only was the Hodge House blessed with close family and friends, but also a family member from out of town. Seeing Andrew merrily engaged in conversation with my step-daughter, granddaughter and friends sent a warm and emotional ripple through my already delighted bones. Truly the spirit of Christmas had visited our house. While each Christmas that comes and goes

ot sure how the jolly, rotund one managed to slip down our decrepit chimney flume without making a huge mess, nor how he managed to leap over the Christmas display on the immediate hearth just outside the decrepit chimney. Regardless, clearly good ole St. Nick did it— and he left a plethora of goodies behind to boot. All of which only defies all the threats and rumours I’ve heard over the years about Santa not acknowledging bad little boys and girls. I admit I have not exactly been the stellar husband: Top end money maker, cleanest kitchen gnome, handiest handy man, most dedicated laundry assistant, consistent and/or creative cook, dynamic dish washer, or highest energy yard jock. So I am a tad surprised how I somehow managed to get back on Santa’s ‘not so naughty list.’ Perplexing, to say the least. On the other hand, analytically, I suppose I rightfully should have climbed up the ‘scumbag scale’ somewhat from previous years when my biography report on Santa’s computer use to have me listed as a ‘politician.’ Without that bad baggage attribution, I clearly rose up the quality meter. My Christmas rewards, however, were not in the plethora of goodies under the tree as much as the wonderful gathering of folks at our Christmas dinner table. Aside from our daughter and three-year old granddaughter, we were joined by three friends for our traditional turkey chow-down. Ironically and unplanned, our three guests were total strangers to one another and in many ways, completely different characters. Yves, TJ and Karen

has its own special memories, this year’s version will comfortably ferment in my memory bank for a long, long time. *** As always, there’s an angel or two that somehow miss my annual Charlie’s Angel’s list. Former mayor and very dear friend Sharon Shepherd somehow disappeared off my list while my talented wildlife artist pal Cindy Weitzel says her personal angel is her mom, Anne Zoobkoff, of Kelowna. *** Final reminder to dance fans that fun is waiting for you this New Year’s Eve. Rann Berry will perform his popular One Hit Wonders performance on New Year’s night at the Coast Capri Hotel, while other acts at the same venue will include Diamond Jones and his Las Vegas Revue, and the nine- piece R&B All Star Band performing a tribute to the Music of Motown. Dubbed the ‘Very Vegas New Year’s Eve Gala,’ the Capri ballroom will be transformed into a Las Vegas Showroom style facility designed to dazzle patrons. Tez and I are planning on hitting one of our favourite musical places, the Blue Gator, to take in the Deb Stone Band. One of the Okanagan’s  top singers and show bands, Stone and crew promise to rock the nightclub with one danceable tune after another and hopefully a bunch of her own original songs as well. Of course, there is always a very good chance that Tez and I may just get a case of Late Night Laziness and never leave the couch— in which case I hope you get out and enjoy the show. No matter where you go, or what you do, this New Year’s stay smart and safe please. Bless you all and see you next year.

COLD! Bring your dog inside. Dogs who do not have adequate shelter can succumb to frostbite and hypothermia, and even die. Dogs who are kept outside all the time - no matter what the weather - can suffer physical and psychological harm.

FACTS Cats, when they are suffering from frostbite, will sit hunched up & they won’t lie down. also, when cats are very cold, they can’t eat. What you need to do is slowly warm the cat back up. Wrap it in a blanket or put it on a heating vent. Do not force it to eat or drink anything until it is warmed up, because that can make things much worse. WINtER CaN KILL YOUR PEts! Being outside can be deadly to your pet this time of year. the Kelowna sPCa cautions pet owners about letting their animals outside unsupervised when the temperature starts dropping. Even pets who are usually outdoor animals should be brought in when it gets well past the freezing mark.

ple, effective routine and build efficiently so before you know it, you have the confidence and knowledge to decide what is right for you.

BREAKTHROUGH PLATEAUS

If you are stuck in the same routine and want to break out of a rut, a personal trainer is the perfect solution. A trainer will jump start, not only your motivation, but your routine as well. Workout Safely A personal trainer watches your form, monitors your vitals and can provide objective feedback about your limits and strengths. Most of us tend to ignore some of the subtle signals our body provides. We either push through pain or give up too soon. Because a personal trainer can watch what you are doing while you are doing it, they can help push you or slow you

down as necessary.

WORKOUT AT HOME

Many personal trainers make house calls. If you don’t have the type or interest in going to a gym, but have a hard time knowing what to do on your own at home, a personal trainer can bring fitness into your living room.

LOSE WEIGHT

There is a good reason that the number one reason people hire personal trainers is to lose weight and get into shape—it works. If you made a resolution to lose the fat and build the muscle, a trainer can keep you on track and help you realize that goal. Before you hire a personal trainer, consider asking some of the following questions. What are their qualifications and certification? A qualified personal trainer has an education

in physiology, health promotion, athletic training, kinesiology or a similar field. They should have first aide and CPR certification as well. Do they have liability insurance? The answer should be yes. What are their policies and procedures? A personal trainer should have a documented policy explaining their services, costs, cancellations, length of contract, and emergency procedures. They should also require a medical clearance form to be completed before they work with you. Finally, you should feel comfortable with the trainer, his/her style of communication and the expectations of your time together.

Pension and Old Age Security benefit rates will see increase The benefit rates for the Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security will increase as of Jan. 1, 2013. CPP benefits will increase by 1.8 percent for those already receiving CPP benefits. CPP benefits are revised once a year, in January, based on changes over a 12-month period (November 2011 to October 2012) in the Consumer Price Index, which is the cost-of-living measure used by Statistics Canada. The maximum CPP retirement benefit for new recipients will increase from $986.67 to $1,012.50 per month. This increase is calculated on the average yearly maximum pensionable earnings for the last five years. The new CPP rates will be in effect until Dec. 31, 2013. OAS benefits, which consist of the basic OAS pension, the Guaranteed In-

come Supplement (GIS) and the Allowances, will increase by 0.2 per cent. These payments are also based on the CPI, but are reviewed quarterly (in January, April, July and October) and revised as required to reflect increases in the cost of living as measured by the CPI. The maximum basic OAS pension will increase from $544.98 to $546.07 per month. The GIS and the allowances provide additional income to low-income pensioners, their spouses or common-law partners, and eligible survivors. Although OAS and CPP benefits are not indexed at the same time, they are both adjusted in accordance with increases in the cost of living over a given year.

Okanagan Athletics are crowned 2012 PBL champs Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

In 2012, the pieces all came together for the Okanagan Athletics. After posting the best regular season record (3216) in the program’s history, the Kelowna-based team capped off a campaign to remember by winning the B.C. Premier Baseball League championship. The A’s, with eight players battling sickness throughout the provincial

tournament, took down the North Shore Twins 9-7 in the championship game in mid-August in Nanaimo. “I’m so happy for the guys,” said A’s head coach Evan Bailey. “I knew we had the team and we had a chance from the start of the season, and to see it actually happen is an amazing feeling. “Things came together at the right time. With so many guys sick, it was a gutsy effort. This is such

a tight-knit group. I’m so proud of them.” Among the many notable offensive performances at provincials was James Ward’s gigantic .700 batting average— despite suffering from the flu—and a pair of home runs from Josh Croft. Individual accomplishments aside, Bailey said it was a genuine team effort by the A’s. “Literally everyone that played did their part,” said Bailey, whose team batted .339 at provincials.

THE OKANAGAN Athletics overcame adversity and pulled together to win the PBL championship. “From one through nine in our lineup, it was unbelievable job by every guy. I’ve never seen a

team this strong offensively.” In addition to the players, Bailey credited much

of the A’s success to the work done behind the scenes over the last several seasons by current

New head coaches, new executive for football squad in 2012 It was another eventful season for the B.C. Football Conference’s Okanagan Sun as the club named not one, but two new head coaches, as well as a new president and a new general manager. In February, Paul Carson moved from the coaching staff to the president’s chair, while former coach and player Jay

Christensen assumed the GM’s role.

“With Jay looking after the football side, it allows us to focus on other issues that boards should be focusing on,” Carson said. “We have the confidence in Jay to run it, we’re going to rely on his expertise, and we won’t be discussing football issues with him. It’s his team in that regard.” In the spring, after

Jason Casey announced a move to Ontario, the Sun hired Gavin Lake as the new field boss. But despite bringing CFL, CIS and European coaching experience with him, the Sun struggled under Lake going a disappointing 3-7. Prior to the playoffs, the club dismissed Lake from his coaching duties.

“I think Gavin did everything he could to try to motivate the guys and make the team successful but really it seemed like he just wasn’t being heard any more,” said Carson. In December, the club officially replaced Lake naming former player Shane Beatty the 15th head coach in Sun history. Beatty, who played

with the Sun in 1990, has coaching experience at the U.S. college level. “I’m elated,” Beatty said upon his appointment. “I think it’s a great opportunity to come back home, be close to family and friends and bring the Okanagan Sun back to

Ski cross racer’s year ends in gold

Sun receiver inks deal with Lions Review from A13

Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

Between a season-ending knee injury in January, and the loss of a friend and teammate two months later, 2012 didn’t begin at all like Kelsey Serwa had envisioned. But by the end of the year, the planets had realigned for the 23-year-old Kelowna native who was back on top of the international ski cross world. On the same hill where she won two races a year earlier, Serwa threw caution and fear to the wind to capture a World Cup event at San Candido, Italy. In many ways, it was the most satisfying of Serwa’s 13 career World Cup podium-finishes. The gold medal came 11 months after the reigning world champ had suffered a torn ACL during a crash in France. “I was talking to (ski tech) Rod Honey and I told him, ‘I’m sick of losing. I’m going to win,’ ” said Serwa, who has been trying to build her confidence from race to race after returning from surgery last January 30. “I’m hungry for it now. Before, I didn’t put that expectation on

Now, I’m ready to race.” Following the injury, Serwa and the rest of the Canadian ski cross team had to deal with the loss of teammate Nik Zoricic, who was killed March 10 during a race in Switzerland. “Nik wasn’t just a teammate, he was someone I looked up to,” Serwa said. “He was a friend, family, a brother.” Serwa continued rehab on her left knee throughout the summer and made her return to the World Cup circuit in November at Nakiska with a promising sixth-place showing. After placing a solid fourth at Telluride, Colo., and 15th in France on Dec. 19, Serwa struck gold four days later in Italy.

Knights prevail with gold medals Warren Henderson STAFF REPORTER

On the volleyball court, 2012 was truly a golden year at Kelowna Christian School. For the first time in the school’s history, the Knights boys and girls’ teams captured the B.C. A titles in the same season. KCS celebrated the school’s first gold medal in boys competition in 12 years in Decemver in Kelowna, knocking off Langley’s Credo Christian in a five-set thriller at KSS. “The guys just didn’t quit,” said Knights’ coach Dave Bingham. “We had a couple of starters with injuries who were tiring out, but the guys all battled hard. It’s a tough-minded group we have. “It was incredibly satisfying,” he added. “That’s a very tough team we beat.” The Knights’ Ryan Linttell was named the tournament’s outstanding player. In South Slocan, the KCS girls made it back-to-back gold medals at the provincial A level, defeating their local rivals, the Immaculata Mustangs, in straight sets in the final.

Kelowna Christian Knights won the B.C. boys A volleyball championship in December. “The girls really came to play and it was nice to watch,” said Knights coach Rob Smith, whose wife Irene assists him. “We have a strong team with no real weaknesses, and none of the other teams could really match that. The girls played great.” Knights’ power hitter Micaylee Pucilowksi, who nearly missed the gold medal match due to illness, was named the tournament’s outstanding player.

OKM Huskies have bite in B.C. soccer An unbeaten season had a golden conclusion for the Okanagan Mission Huskies boys soccer program in 2012. OKM captured the B.C. AA boys championship in November with a 2-1 win in a shootout over Port Coquitlam’s Archbishop Carney Stars. It was the school’s first provincial banner in any sport in 21 years. “The boys have had a fantastic, phenomenal season,” said Huskies head coach Tony Overton. “It was a special team effort, not just by the 11 starters on

the field but by all 20 players.” OKM finished the season with a 28-0 record, allowing just 14 goals in the process. “This was a fantastic group of guys to work with,” added Overton. Huskies’ midfielder MacKenzie Rigg was named the provincial tournament’s MVP. Dylan Wagner earned a Golden Boot, while Andrew Stevenson was named to the Commissioner’s 11 all-star team.

CAPITAL NEWS

CUISINE from Jude’s kitchen cooking with beer We all know about cooking with wine, but cooking with beer is less common. However, it’s just as interesting, and the resulting flavours are just as reflective of the flavours you taste when you drink it. So, the stronger-flavoured beers are best to use in cooking. Not necessarily stout, but certainly ales rather than light lagers. Now that winter’s officially here, comfort food like stews and meatloaf and casseroles are mainstream. It’s the one good thing about bad weather. Good food is in. I’m not a big beer drinker, but I do enjoy a light lager when it’s hot in the summer, and in winter I enjoy the occasional pale ale, as long as it isn’t too hoppy-flavoured. And, one of my very favourite stew recipes involves beer and beef, as you'll see below. Hopefully, you’ve resolved to try at least one new food thing a week this coming year, so you might want to begin by cooking with beer if you’ve never tried it before. Now that we've suffered through the shortest day of the year, things can only get better, as the days begin to be longer, despite the fact winter has only just begun. If you didn’t get it for Christmas, you might also want to pick up a copy of my book, Jude’s Kitchen, which is full of great recipes such as the beef in beer one here, organized seasonally, focussing on local ingredients, including beer. It’s available wherever books are sold, as well as local VQA stores like the B.C. Wine Museum in the historic Laurel Packinghouse and many wineries, including Calona Vineyards and Quails’ Gate Estate Winery in West Kelowna.

Beef in Beer Stew This is one of our favourite recipes, and I’ve heard the same comment from many others. This appeared in one of my first food columns. It’s great done either on the stove top or in the slow cooker. 2 lb. (1 kg) beef strips or cubes flour, salt and pepper skim of oil 1-2 large onion(s), sliced 1-4 cloves of garlic, crushed 4-6 carrots 2 ribs celery 12 mushrooms, whole 1 1/2 c. (355 ml) beer 1 tsp. (5 ml) brown sugar Dredge beef chuck, round or other stewing meat in flour seasoned with salt and pepper to taste. Slice onions, crush gar-

lic, chop up carrots, celery and mushrooms, if large. Heat enough oil over medium heat, to coat the bottom of a dutch oven or heavy pot, and saute onions until limp, but not brown. Remove onions and add enough oil to thinly cover the bottom of the pot, and brown the beef. Return onions to the pot, along with minced or crushed garlic and vegetables. Stir in beer and sugar. Bring it back to bubbling, then lower heat, cover and simmer for two hours or so, or put it into a 325 F oven for the same time. Or, you can cook it in the slow cooker for about eight hours. Serves 6.

Rickard's Bacon-wrapped Meatloaf

JUDIE STEEVES / CAPITAL NEWS

This looks very elegant and it tastes good too. Although chef Michael P. Clive, who created this recipe for Rickard’s, figures it will serve four people, I made half the recipe and it would have served three or four people, so this whole recipe would probably serve six to eight. I’ve never made meatloaf with beer in it, but the Rickard's Oakhouse winter lager is a really tasty, mellow beer, and I’d recommend it, both for cooking with and to drink. 2 tbsp. (30 ml) olive oil 1 large onion 1/2 lb. (227 g) mushrooms 2 large garlic cloves 1/2 c. (125 ml) Rickard’s Oakhouse winter lager 1/2 c. (125 ml) heavy cream 1 1/2 tsp. (7 ml) fresh oregano 1 1/2 tsp. (7 ml) fresh thyme 1 1/2 tsp. (7 ml) salt 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) fresh-ground black pepper 1 lb. (454 g) lean ground pork 1 lb. (454 g) lean ground beef 1 lb. (454 g) lean ground veal 1 egg, beaten lightly 3/4 lb. (340 g) smoked bacon slices Pre-heat the oven to 400 F. Dice the onion, finely chop the mushrooms and mince

the garlic and herbs. Heat olive oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Saute the onion until translucent, about eight minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic and cook until they just begin to colour, three to five minutes. Stir in the cream, Rickard’s Oakhouse winter lager, minced fresh herbs or a little less dried, salt and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce the heat, simmering until the vegetables are tender, eight to 10 minutes. Transfer the mushroom mixture to a large mixing bowl and let cool. Add the meats to the mixture and stir in the beaten egg, mixing until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. On a flat surface, lay out a large sheet of parchment paper and place the 13 or so strips of bacon, side-byside, across the middle, allowing them to overlap slightly. Form a log of the meat mixture across the bacon slices. Roll the parchment paper away from you, over the log of ground meat, wrapping the bacon slices around the log inside the paper, until all the paper is wrapped around the bacon-wrapped ‘log’ of meat, then twist the ends of the paper tightly to trap in all the juices. Wrap it again using a sheet of foil and twist the foil ends similarly. Place the wrapped loaf on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for an hour. Remove the loaf from the oven and let it rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the foil and paper, carefully pouring off the juices. Slice the meatloaf into 3/4-inch thick wheels and serve. Serves 6-8.

Some simple guidelines for readers of Jude's Kitchen

There are some basics about my cooking that you should know about in using the recipes created for Jude’s Kitchen. * I mean a large egg when a recipe calls for an egg * usually, butter and margarine are interchangeable * usually, salt and pepper is added to your taste * I generally use sea salt

* fresh ingredients top frozen or canned * organic products are my first choice * wherever possible, I use whole grains, not processed * include a variety of them, when possible * wherever possible, I use fresh herbs * fewer quantities of dried herbs are needed than fresh

* I use extra virgin olive oil * I use grapeseed or olive oil to cook with * I don’t deep fry * feel free to substitute. I do * have fun in the kitchen * encourage others to as well
