Loison – Real Italian Panettone

Loison is a respected producer located west of Venice in Northern Italy. They follow traditional techniques in producing their panettones and pandori, taking 72 hours to make a cake! And their pride in their work show!

“Tradition is our main ingredient and Passion is what heats our ovens: we have been creating signature confections for three generations and we bring them to tables across the world. From grandfather Tranquillo, continuing with father Alexander, to arrive today to Dario Loison, today company leading with over 75 years of experience and improving: its strength is in the ancient family vocation.”

Hot Sauces

Dawson’s Big Smoke Chipotle

Dawson’s Big Smoke Chipotle
The third sauce we are reviewing from Dawson’s, Big Smoke Chipotle is their hottest and the first one they developed. Nice and thick, the smoky flavour comes out with a medium heat. Main ingredient is the chipotle with jalapeno and red chili peppers thrown in. Dawson’s recommends mixing with pasta sauce for extra appeal. Also makes a great dip mixed with mayo!

Dawson’s Sweet Pear Chili Hot Sauce

Dawson’s Sweet Pear Chili Hot Sauce

Here we are again, tasting more from Dawson’s in Hamilton. This time we are giving their Sweet Pear Chili sauce the run down.
This sauce is chunky, just like their Garlic hot sauce. The sweetness is there, along with a decent amount of heat. The heat comes from Vietnamese chili peppers, with a touch of lime that does add a citrus note to the sauce. Definitely a medium low heat level, with just the right amount of heat staying with you. So if you are looking for a sauce that adds a bit of bite and sweetness to what you are eating, this sauce fills those requirements.

Cooksville Hot Sauce – Steel City Steak Sauce

Cooksville Steel City Steak Sauce

New from Cooksville Hot Sauce, a spicy steak sauce with a nod to Hamilton. Yes, another sauce from Hamilton! Cooksville Hot Sauce Company started in Cooksville, part of Mississauga, back in the 70’s. Though the founder, Paul Casey has moved around the province, the Cooksville name has remained. Now in the Hamilton area, he has created a steak sauce based on hot peppers and tomato paste with onions, garlic, dates and raisins as well as other ingredients. The heat is mild and the flavour of the ground black pepper comes through the combination of tangy and sweet components.

Definitely a sauce worth trying – especially if you already are a fan of Paul’s line of hot sauces and condiments.

Uncle Peter’s Man Demonstration Day

Uncle Peter’s Man is a newer line of men’s skin care products from Toronto. Their line presently includes two oils (647 and 416 – how TO!) , a soap and a facial scrub. Just in time for Father’s Day, we will be hosting a demo in the shop on Saturday June 13. Come in and try the products – I use the oils as an aftershave and find that they have a great effect in ‘calming’ the skin. They have great scents as well, both being made using argan oil along with other essential oils.

Sleepy Owl Baby Care –Natural Products Made in Canada

With a new baby in the house, many parents try to source products that are made from natural ingredients, escaping any of the adverse effects from artificial compounds that we have all become aware of recently. This was the intention of Natacha Rey when she gave birth to her daughter in 2010. Growing up on an organic farm in Ontario, Natacha has long appreciated the benefits of ingredients that do not rely on artificial chemicals. Using her knowledge of naturally grown plants, she developed a line of baby care products based on Blue Chamomile, an herb known to have anti-inflammatory and calming qualities. Other essential oils, including lavender and avocado, are used in her products as well, avoiding all synthetic fragrances that can cause irritation and allergic reactions.
Her line, Sleepy Owl Baby Care Products, now includes a 3 in 1 Wash that can be used as shampoo, body wash or a bubble bath; Baby’s Blue Oil, containing blue chamomile and lavender oils; Bottom Balm and a “Boo Boo” Stick for minor hurts and insect bites.
Sleepy Owl products are proudly made in Canada and use organic ingredients whenever possible. You can read reviews on Nanny Robina’s website (nannyrobina.com) – where the line has received her stamp of approval.
