Welcoming summer (finally!)

Summer means outdoor entertaining and backyard bliss! We are so excited to start hosting our family get-togethers, picnics, BBQs, and hanging out on the patio; as well as lakeside dinners, summer fun and relaxation.

In the summer, we love to eat al fresco - but hate risking our favourite glasses and dishes out by the pool or patio. Our collection of Le Cadeaux high-grade melamine dining and serving wares are the perfect outdoor accessory. We also carry single-use (biodegradable) wood charcuterie boards, cutlery, and a collection of summer napkins!

We will be launching a brand new collection of beautiful al fresco wares on June 13th, so stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram for details to come.

Don't forget: Our French Market Bags are all on sale for 25% off. Just in time for trips to the farmer's market or a day at the beach.

2 cups fresh cooked corn 
3 avocados, peeled and diced
1/2 cup olive oil 
1/4 red wine vinegar 
1 tbsp cumin
12 drops tabasco
1 tbsp garlic, minced 
1 tsp chilli powder
1/4 cup fresh cilantro 
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 red onion, minced
1/2 cup fresh lime juice 

Mix all ingredients and chill. Store for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Enjoy with wanton chips.

Homemade Wonton Chips

1 pack of frozen sheets of wonton wrapper 
1/4 cup melted butter
salt + pepper 

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Take 1 wonton wrapper, cut on diagonal. Brush with butter and sprinkle with salt + pepper. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and repeat with as many as will fit on the tray.

Bake (be sure to watch them as they cook super vast!)  
Cool on a wire rack.
Repeat as needed. 

Enjoy!
