Dear The Wine Ladies,

ASK

My husband and I are trying to expand on our limited culinary adventures and recently found ourselves at a traditional Peruvian restaurant. Not only did we thoroughly enjoy this new cuisine, my dish a “parrillada mixed” was absolutely delicious but we also discovered a new drink called Pisco. I had a Pisco Sour and my husband had a Pisco on the rocks. We both loved our aperitifs! Can you tell me a little about Pisco and where it can be found? We had never heard of it before but learned it is the national drink of Peru.

- Brooke

THE WINE LADIES Q&A Dear Brooke,

You have discovered what many mixologists view as the next big spirit to make its mark in the drinks world, already making a splash at many trendy bars and restaurants. Pisco is enjoying quite the renaissance in many eateries due in part to the surge in South American cuisine on the scene that is being seen across North America. In fact “Central” a restaurant in Lima was rated this year as #4 in the 50 Top Restaurants around the world, beating out world renown NOMA located in Copenhagen! We had the opportunity to visit Lima and enjoyed first hand the incredible cuisine of this city, so rich and diverse, it was quite an extraordinary experience. We also enjoyed our fair share of Pisco!

Add to this the possibility of using either the category of aromatic grapes such as Torontel or non-aromatic like the most prolific Quebranta grapes, Pisco is truly a very special spirit in its unique ability to offer the bodegas an opportunity to handcraft their spirit in a fashion unique to them.

WHAT IS PISCO? Pisco is a premium, delicious, savoury and complex white spirit that originated in the town of Pisco in the region of Ica, Peru. It dates back hundreds of years and is an integral part of the Peruvian culture. A spirit that can be enjoyed on its own, offering a range of seductive notes including citrus, peach, green apple, flowers, hints of chocolate and more… Such a delicious range due to the variety of eight different grapes permitted to be used, and the three styles in which it can be made. Whether it be a Pisco Puro, meaning a single varietal Pisco, or a Mosto Verde, made with the must that has not completed fermentation, or a Pisco Acholado using a blend of two grapes or more, this wonderful spirit offers the palate a unique and sophisticated adventure.

Pisco offers such versatility as a spirit for cocktails, mixologists suggest, move over vodka, or others spirits too and reach for a Pisco. Be creative, incorporate fresh fruit and lime juice, an habitual, delish pisco-partner! Next time you dine Peruvian ask for a Chilcano, a traditional Peruvian cocktail, one of our favourites! thewineladies.com

MALAWI T H E WA R M H E A R T O F A F R I C A

Story by VALERIE STACEY hat a beautiful country filled with such beautiful people. I still can’t believe that I am so blessed to be able to say that I’ve been to Malawi and I was part of the Africa Learning Team as part of a partnership between The Meeting House and World Vision, and I have the Mississauga South community to thank.

Travelling to Africa and meeting the people had always been a dream of mine. When the opportunity came up to travel and learn about this amazing continent I knew my chance had finally arrived but there was one little problem – how to pay for the trip. Dreams can be expensive. People have asked me what the best part of my trip was and I have such a hard time answering because there were so many amazing aspects. I will always remember meeting both of my family’s sponsor children. It was such a blessing to be able to personally connect with the children as well as their mothers. I look forward to continuing to connect our families through letters and pictures.

12

• COMMUNITYCAPTURED.CA

As I said, my mind was blown by the all of the amazing things we saw as a result of the work of the staff and volunteers in the World Vision communities. I especially appreciated hearing the stories of the changes that were made possible by a new borehole. For one family in particular, having clean water available meant that the children weren’t late for school because the mother didn’t have to walk for hours to get water. The children also missed fewer days of school due to water-borne illnesses. The mother now has much more time to invest in her family, her home, her garden and potentially a small business because she isn’t spending nearly as much time fetching water. The ripple effects from the borehole were incredible.


“THESE MEETINGS MADE THE WORLD SEEM MUCH SMALLER TO ME WE ARE ALL CONNECTED. Before the trip, I wasn’t very familiar with any of the work BIC Malawi did. Being able to connect with our brothers and sisters in the BIC church family was inspiring. The stories we heard and are now able to share with friends here were touching - some very sad and many more really uplifting. Now that I’ve seen and heard so many of the wonderful things that the pastors are doing - caring for their people, dealing with HIV/AIDS in their communities, teaching young pastors - I am so impressed. I’m proud to say that we partner with these amazing men and women. The financial help is a tangible way we can help the Bishop and pastors in Malawi, but the relationships that have been built over time are equally important. The way the community members all work together for common goals was absolutely inspiring to me. The people that we met all have so much hope. They have come so far in a relatively short period of time and they are excited about what the future holds. Malawi used to be just a place on a map, now it is part of my life story and testimony. To my family, friends and my community, I would like to thank you so much for your generous support with the fundraising efforts for my trip to Malawi. Being a part of the Africa Learning Team was truly a lifechanging experience and I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity.

CANADA TURNS

WHAT DOES THE LOGO REPRESENT? The logo is composed of a series of diamonds, or “celebratory gems”, arranged in the shape of the iconic maple leaf. The four diamonds at the base represent the four original provinces that formed Confederation in 1867: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Additional diamonds extend out from the base to create nine more points—in total representing the 13 provinces and territories. The Canada 150 logo will become an evocative symbol and an enduring reminder of one of Canada’s proudest moments. The maple leaf motif is recognized at home and abroad as distinctively Canadian, and it fosters feelings of pride, unity and celebration. This unique and colourful design is simple enough to be drawn by children, and versatile enough to appear in color variations. The possible uses of the symbol are as unlimited as the spirit and imagination of the Canadian public.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

CR EAT E D B Y A R I A N A C U V I N F R O M TO R O N TO , the logo was the winning design in a nation-wide competition. Canadian students were invited to create the official Government of Canada’s logo for the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017 through a design contest that was held from December 5, 2014 until January 23, 2015. Ariana was chosen from a field of over 300 eligible entries. By participating in this contest, young Canadians had the opportunity to participate and contribute in an original way to this important milestone in Canadian history. Source: canada.pch.gc.ca

no scratching furniture). Mulan is 13 years old and bloodwork shows the start of kidney disease. She doesn’t need medications now, just a proper diet. She is good with other cats. If you are interested, please contact Team Cat Rescue at info@teamcatrescue.ca. Adoption Fee $75.

DELICIOUS DISH RECIPE

CHOCOLATE

BABKA BUNS

SERVING SIZE: Makes 12 NOTE: If I don’t have buttermilk, I mix the milk and lemon juice and let stand for 5 minutes, and voila... buttermilk!

This recipe is a hybrid of cinnamon rolls and a traditional chocolate babka. I love it because I use a “quick bread” method instead of using a traditional yeast dough making this a perfect weekday recipe!

INGREDIENTS • For the Dough • 3/4 cup cottage cheese (4% milk fat) • 1/3 cup buttermilk (or 1/3 cup milk and 1 tsp lemon juice) • 1/4 cup granulated sugar • 2 oz (4 tbsp) unsalted butter, melted • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract • 9 oz (2 cups) unbleached all-purpose flour; more for rolling • 1 tbsp baking powder • 1/2 tsp table salt • 1/4 tsp baking soda F O R T H E F I L L I NG

• 3 tbsp (45 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature • 1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar • 8 ounces (225 grams) semisweet chocolate • Pinch of salt

DIRECTIONS S T EP 01

Heat oven to 350˚F and generously grease a 12-muffin tin. S T EP 02

Mix the Egg Wash ingredients in a small bowl, set aside S T EP 03

Prepare Filling First: If your chocolate is in large bars, roughly chop it. Then, you can let a food processor do the rest of the work, pulsing the chopped chocolate with the salt, sugar until the chocolate is very finely chopped with some parts almost powdery. Add butter and pulse machine until it’s distributed throughout the chocolate. Set mixture aside. Wash and dry the processor well. S T EP 04

Make the Dough: In the food processor, combine the cottage cheese, buttermilk, sugar, melted butter, and vanilla. Process until smooth, about 10 seconds. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda and pulse in short bursts just until the dough clumps together (don’t over process). The dough will be soft and moist. S T EP 05

Scrape the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead it with floured hands 4 or 5 times until smooth. With a rolling pin, roll the dough into a 12" x 15" rectangle. S T EP 06

Sprinkle the filling mixture over the the dough and pat gently into the surface.

S T EP 07

• 1 egg • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) heavy cream or milk

Starting at a long edge, roll up the dough jelly-roll style. Pinch the seam to seal, and leave the ends open.

CAROLYN COHEN

With a sharp serrated knife, gently saw the roll into 12 equal pieces (I like to cut in half first and cut each half in half again and cut 3 slices for every quarter). Place each piece, cut side up, in the prepared muffin tin. Brush with egg wash.

Bake until golden brown and firm to the touch, 20-25 minutes. Set the pan on a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Run a spatula around the inside of each muffin cup to loosen any sticky bits and then remove buns to a rack to finish cooling.

have spent the past 6 weeks developing and programming their robot and hope to bring home many accolades. The trip is always a blast for the students and staff of TEAM 4992. Our Youth in Action Group continues to fundraise for the Me to We campaign and will be travelling to Peru over the March Break to help those in need, as well as show our students some incredible sights! The YIA group is already planning their next trip to India for the March Break 2018. Speaking of travel, another group is headed to Los Angeles in February 2018 and preparation is already underway. They will be checking out Hollywood, movie studios, acting & cinema make-up workshops, or be the audience for a TV show taping. How cool is that? In May our Global Education teachers are travelling to Germany, Netherlands and France to tie in with the History Curriculum. The fun and learning will happen at Disney World for the Grade 10 Business students. In May some lucky travellers will fly out to New York City to tour theatres, see a Broadway Production and live large in The Big Apple! Our SHSM (Specialist High Skills Major) students will be headed to White Oaks Secondary School on March 28 for the annual skills competition. We have students entered in: Cosmetology, Floristry, Robotics, Electronics,

With help from the Halton Food for Thought Program, CKSS is handing out breakfast to our students 3 mornings a week. Over 120 students take part each of the mornings. The meals range from pieces of fresh fruit, to smoothies to egg-stuffed avocados. Donations to the program are

In December of 2015, Paris hosted the United Nation’s Climate Change Conference or COP 21 in which, 196 representing countries or territorial parties, agreed upon an international commitment to reduce the effects of climate change. As a result, world wide education regarding strategies has increased in schools, communities and within governing parties.

The ritual of dimming lights is a nod towards validating climate change. The gathering of people together is a meaningful, peaceful demonstration of willingness to collectively safeguard the planet now, for future generations to enjoy. Besides all that, Earth Hour is actually fun! This year Earth Hour is on Saturday March 25th, 8:30 - 9:30 pm.

Earth Hour, created a decade ago, pays homage to this cause because it is a global, symbolic gesture to encourage people to power down for an hour, in order to show world wide support for environmental stewardship.
