Summertime Picnic

Aug 12, 2022

Written by Chef Liana

Just like putting on your favourite pair of sneakers or those vintage jeans from the 70s, everything old eventually becomes new again! It’s not just fashion trends, but food and cocktails as well. Updating classic favourite recipes is not only practical, but also fun. They bring a sense of nostalgia and comfort but with a modern twist.

We’re going to apply the “what’s old is new again” principle to one of my favourite dishes — and in fact, we won’t even need to go back decades in time. We’re just going back to one of my go-to broccoli recipes. It packs in fresh pears, pecans brings a completely new flavour profile to the often overlooked head of broccoli. It’s the third instalment for your summertime picnic recipes, perfect for a sunny day in the countryside or right in your own backyard.

To change it up and add that special je ne sais quoi, I added Cal&Gary’s maple syrup & grilled Red Pepper Chicken Spolumbo's sausage. And just like that, a brand new taste sensation! Your picnic basket will be full of so many delights from Calgary Co-op. From perfectly vine ripened tomatoes to crispy cucumbers, and from fresh in-store bakery breads to delectable local meats, Calgary Co-op has it all. Top them off with the Cal&Gary’s sparkling flavoured drinks, and you’re set for a picnic blanket sunshine adventure.  Go ahead and get your picnic on!
