Recipes that can adapt to changing seasons or special occasions are something I love! Using your pantry to keep stocked up for basic recipes that you can adapt and play with can be both a space and money saver.



The weather may be getting miserable, but take heart, Airdrie; we’ve got a lot of good excuses to get out of the house and into some of Airdrie’s best foodie experiences.

Farm to Table

First & Vine Airdrie

Airdrie’s restaurants are starting to embrace the farm-to-table movement, and their commitment to locally sourced ingredients have our mouths watering with each bite.

My go-to berries are a mix of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries. The lemon juice and berries create a tangy-sweet treat for hot summer days. Use your favourite berries and even try out flavoured yogurt!

Fine food without the “frou-frou”

Hayloft, Airdrie

A century-old door greets every guest who comes to Hayloft in Airdrie. Its gorgeous wood panels and inlaid glass diamonds have been lovingly restored by restaurant owner Hoan Nguyen (pronounced Haan Nuwin). And like everything in this charming eatery, there’s a story behind it.

A Fine Balance Café: spicing things up

Indian restaurant Airdrie

With gentle but powerful strokes, Chef Deepak Kalsi stirs a vat of hot red curry that’s been simmering overnight in the Fine Balance kitchen. In his smart white chef’s uniform, and a turban wrapped around his head, the young Sikh chef massages the curry with a giant wooden spoon.

The New Burger Baron

Abe’s creates the fas-cas dining experience. Bernie Levert is accustomed to seeing folks enter Abe’s Restaurant, walk right past the front counter and the giant menu, take a seat at a booth and start tapping on their phones.

The Seal of Creativity

Chef puts his personal flair in every dish What started out as a simple recipe to make money slowly simmered into a seasoned love of the culinary arts for Tony Dunstan. The Red Seal chef currently stirs up his gastronomic skills at the Overtime Lounge. But this pub-food atmosphere cuisine is a long way from Dunstan’s beginnings. “I started working very young and was 13 when I started in the first restaurant. By 17 I
