I love coffee.  I could and often do drink it all day long.   I am normally a black coffee person but once the fall weather rolls in I can easily be convinced to squeeze in a pie spiced latte once in a while.  Here is how we are drinking our coffee at the Victoria Gourmet...

Salt and Pepper to Taste
Salt and pepper are two ingredients that I feel are essential to cooking. But if you are cooking for anyone other than yourself, you need to show restraint in using these two ingredients. Dishes can easily go from bland to overly salted depending on an individual’s palate. The same goes for...
