484 Range Lake Rd, Yellowknife – Website

Date of Visit: October, 2015

I visited Coyote’s a few years ago but only for drinks. The place has two parts; a fairly nice bar on the one side of the building, and a full menu restaurant on the other. On this visit, I went for dinner with the intention of having a large steak but I got side-tracked by the appetizer selection and opted to try a series of these instead. Unfortunately, I rather regretted my choice… Read More →

Mint and Lamb are natural together and, aside from serving my home-made Mint Sauce as an accompaniment to a roasted leg of lamb, I also use it as a marinade and baste for other cuts.

Still, it needed to be used fairly soon and, as I was alone for the week, and had lovely weather, I decided to see how it might do on the barbecue grill… Read More →

Many years ago, I came across a recipe for grilled corn on the cob and it was something of a revelation to me as I had never really considered any other ways of cooking cobs other than by the traditional method of boiling it. There are plenty of ways of cooking corn on the grill, of course, and the preparation featured in today’s post, with its roots in the cuisines of South-east Asia,  reproduces the first recipe I came across as best as I can remember it… Read More →
