JANUARY 2020 NEWS FROM PROVISIONS
Hi everyone! We hope you all ushered in the new year with a bang, it's hard to believe it is 2020 but here it is so lets make it an excellent one!
On January 2nd we are changing our hours of operation to reflect the season (see above).
Note that it may seem that our hours change frequently but essentially, they change with the seasons, 4- 5 times
a year and we strive to make the changes as minimal as possible to avoid confusion.
SEEKING NEW ART, CRAFTS, JEWELERY AND ARTISTS TO DISPLAY IN 2020
Every year the arts and crafts displays in the store are changed and although you may see some of the same
work come up over time there is always new art coming in to be shown. If you are interested in showing some of your work please come by and let us know. We are very passionate about supporting local work and would love to talk to you about how you can display yours.
CHINESE NEW YEAR CELEBRATION
On January 25th we will celebrate Chinese New Years with a Chinese inspired menu and will be serving our own versions of traditional classic dishes. Watch for the menus to be posted later this month!
A FOLLOW UP ON GOING ORGANIC
In November we announced that we had finally found a good source for organic flour and freshly milled grain
and would be using it in everything we bake and make in the cafe, bakery and store. We are happy to say that
this has been a huge success and we are following up by offering organic flour and grains available to purchase in bulk for your own needs at home using a recyclable refill program. How does it work? We have large returnable jars pre-filled and you pay a one-time fee for the container and when you bring it back there is a fixed fee to fill it again.
Currently there is organic whole wheat, organic unbleached white and organic mill ground rye flour available. Over time we plan on adding more products that will be available via bulk. Thank you for supporting our initiative to go organic.
THE ISLAND WIDE BAKE-OFF
NEW RECIPE CHALLENGE
Finally, we would like to kick off the year with an exciting event, we have many recipes for baked goods, specifically bars and desserts, that we regularly make and each one has its own fans. Some items are so popular that it is hard to imagine taking them off the menu. But that is exactly what we want to do so we can bring something new to serve you when you drop by for a snack. And we are asking for your help to do it.
Those of you who have a favourite recipe that always seems to be a hit with your friends and family we are asking you to share them with us by either clearly hand writing or printing a paper copy of the recipe and sending it to our mailing address. (False Bay Provisions, Lasqueti Island, General Delivery VOR 2JO or False Bay Provisions Local if you are on island )
We will go through all the recipes and will test as many as possible before deciding on the ones that shine the brightest and are the most delicious. Contributors that we pick to be featured on our menu will be offered the choice of coming in for a complimentary lunch, drinks and dessert with a friend or they can have their name displayed on the winning dish on a card for island wide bragging rights.
So, you can take the anonymous route, knowing your recipe is being used here, and keep it to yourself after enjoying a lunch with your guest on us or have your name on your winning recipe for all to see, the choice is yours!
The deadline for submissions is February 23rd. Winners that wish to be recognized will be announced in the March edition of the Isle and Times.
Thanks in advance for contributing and good luck, it's going to be very interesting to see what everyone brings to the table.
Looking forward to serving you, False Bay Provisions
