Fieldstone Artisan Breads The best of the season

here’s nothing better than the heady, delicious smells wafting from Fieldstone Artisan Breads, especially around the holidays. For anyone hosting a seasonal cocktail party, open house, or Christmas feast with all the trimmings, Fieldstone is a “must visit” destination.

Fieldstone is renowned year-round for their lovingly hand-shaped breads, made with the finest organic flours and baked in a French-stone hearth oven. At Christmas, their cute-as-a-button “Candy Cane Baguettes” are a sure winner, as are their specialty seasonal artisan breads, including Ginger and Pear, Fig and Anis, and the delicious Country Harvest Stuffing bread. At Christmas, Fieldstone overflows with specialty sweet treats, and the beautifully packaged cookies, pistachio and cranberry French chocolate bark, and rich, moist fruit cakes make perfect hostess gifts. Also popular is the bakery’s highly coveted German Stollen recipe. “It’s a traditional Dresdner-style stollen made with rum-soaked raisins, currants, citron and almonds in a dense butter yeast dough with a marzipan core—irresistible!” exclaims baker and owner, Paul Hanley. In addition, Fieldstone also carries a variety of speciality gourmet foods, including a line imported from Europe that is not available anywhere else in the local area. Paul has hand-picked an inspiring selection of gourmet goodies discovered during his travels in the Bergerac region of France. Consider picking up some foie gras, truffles, or rose petal jam from Fieldstone for the foodie on your Christmas list. A Christmas tradition at Fieldstone is the mouth-watering Tourtiere, a traditional Quebecoise meat pie. Paul raves about this savoury favourite, noting “we started making tourtiere eight years ago, and it’s firmly become a festive favourite. Our loyal customers now clamour for it year round! The smell of baking tourtiere wafting through the bakery is unbeatable. The cinnamon...the nutmeg—it’s like being in Quebec for Christmas!” For those too time starved to do their own holiday baking, Fieldstone is the place to go for buttery shortbread, melt-in-your-mouth pecan frosties, and exceptional mince tarts—truly better than grandma used to make! This festive season be sure to stop by Fieldstone Artisan Breads on Crescent Road in South Surrey—it is the season to indulge after all! #2 - 12823 Crescent Road (downstairs), South Surrey 604 531 7880 fieldstonebread.ca Visit Fieldstone Artisan Breads on Facebook

Is your next dental visit going to be just about teeth and gums? Wouldn’t it make sense to know the BIG PICTURE? MODERN TECHNOLOGY 3-D Imaging: With the development of the Cone Beam CT (CBCT) for dental use, a 3-D image of the teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures is possible with only about 2% of the radiation from a medical CT.

Joint Imaging: CBCT is an excellent diagnostic tool in determining joint health. A healthy joint will appear with a rounded ball-and-socket appearance and wide spacing between the bones. An unhealthy joint will have a distorted shape and diminished spacing.

How a Comprehensive Dental Exam Could Save Your Life… Reduced airway size is the most common cause of snoring and sleep apnea. There is now an abundance of research being performed on the negative effects of reduced air flow in regards to depressed immune system and increased risk of cancer. Sleep apnea is well established as a life threatening condition. CBCT studies can measure the exact volume of the airway, and thereby, screen for potential air flow related health risks. Red and black indicate restriction. Green, blue, and white indicate a normal airway opening.

Michaud’s Salon Spa Wellness Centre Experience does make a difference

hen given the choice, who would not go to a relaxing salon where the client is a priority? A salon where the stylists are dedicated and career minded? A salon where you get a design cut that is current and reflects your lifestyle and personality? A salon where you have choices about the services offered? That is exactly why Michaud’s offers hair services at different price levels. Levels of pricing show graduated levels of experience, education, and client demand. Prices reflect a stylist’s personal achievement. This type of pricing begins with New Talent - these stylists are licensed and have chosen Michaud’s for their career. New Talent stylists have completed extensive hands-on-training with a Michaud’s master stylist as well as advanced Redken professional training. They are very well trained by the time they begin working on your hair. As New Talent, they offer entry level pricing with design cuts starting at $39. With more experience, continued education, leadership roles, and an increased client base, stylists move up to the Designer and Master stylist levels. A design cut begins at $44 with a level one Designer stylist, at $49 with a level 2 Designer stylist, and at $53 with a level 3 Master stylist. At each level, all design cuts are carefully crafted to complement your face shape and hair texture. Each stylist works with you to create an individual expression for your own flare. The great part about the levels system is that you are able to enjoy the salon experience and still work within your budget. Call the salon for a personal recommendation based on your needs.
