Herma prepared salmon in Emile Henry’s Fish Grill

The Emile Henry Fish Grill allows you to cook your fish or seafood easily on the barbeque, ensuring that it remains tender while still keeping that delicate smoked flavour. Herma cooked this lovely salmon using the Fish Grill. She actually used the oven instead of the grill.

Benefits of the Fish Grill…

  • Thanks to its high sides you may marinate your fish directly on the grill. You can either cook the fish in the marinade or you can pour it off before cooking, thanks to the pouring lip.
  • The ribbed surface will make attractive marks on the food and will prevent the fish from boiling in its juice while cooking.
  • Once cooked, you can serve the Fish grill directly on the table, which will keep the contents hot throughout the meal.

The Grill Stone

Regularly $100.00 (NOW $75)

Emile Henry Grill Stone

Your Emile Henry Grill Stone allows you to grill your kebabs and all kinds of other foods on the barbeque, even the most delicate. You may serve food directly from this dish also, which allows foods to stay hot. 

The Village Grocer’s Flattened Chicken and Emile Henry’s Grill Stone

Herma recently prepared the most divine chicken dish using the Emile Henry Grill Stone. Herma chose to use her grill stone in the oven.

Exotic Cooking

And, oh, the Tagine. If cooking could be considered seductive this would be the pot to get you there. The tagine pot transports you to the spice markets of Casablanca. Let the humidity created within the tagine’s cone-shaped lid smother your tender meat with beautiful spices and aromas. You’ll be amazed!

The Tagine

Emile Henry Tagine

You can use your Emile Henry tagine to cook delicious tagines and other slow cooked recipes on the stove or in the oven.

We suggest using the Epicentre spice Moroccan Blend: Ras el Hanout when preparing food in your Tagine pot. Also take a look at a delicious lamb recipe we recently posted in Facebook.

Featured Ontario Food of the Week

It is important at this time to support local businesses. That is why we have decided to feature an Ontario business each week until things get back to normal.

This week’s featured Ontario Food of the week is…

The Epicentre Spice

Twenty years ago Barbara McGee and Barry Mortin of Bridgenorth, Ontario (just north of Peterborough) went to see Herma for her opinion on launching a spice company. Not long after Herma’s enthusiastic response, The Epicentre was born (épice = spice).  Herma was their first customer and has carried their products ever since. At present she carries up to 50 different spices at any given time.
The Epicentre blends only the best ingredients. As a result, there are no fillers or preservatives and they contain little or no salt. What’s more, the fresh herbs and spices they use are hand-blended in small batches. 
From an interesting twist on the ordinary, like Smoked Black Pepper to the most exotic of spices, like Grains of Paradise, The Epicentre spices are for cooks looking for quality AND adventure.
Traditional spice blends, such as African Berbere , Mid Eastern Baharat, the Moroccan Blend Ras el Hanout, French Herbes de Provence or Tunisian Harissa, are researched for historical and cultural clues to produce a high quality, authentic version of the blend.

Some of our favourites…

tins of spices
Chai Spice Baking Blend — Traditional warming spices of chai masala combine in this blend. The dominant note of cardamon, blends with clove, cinnamon and back pepper adding a touch of heat.
Chicken Love — A combination of common poultry seasonings with high quality paprikas and mild chilies create the ultimate “Roast Chicken” flavour.
Coffee Chile Steak Rub — This aromatic blend is made with a variety of spices and chiles but is predominately flavoured with Aleppo Pepper and a rich free-trade coffee roasted locally.
Fire and Brimstone — The ultimate spice rub with more than heat. Australian pepperberry, chipotle chiles, smoked paprika, black and white pepper provide the heat, balanced with ancho chiles, cinnamon, cumin, oregano and other spices. Devilishly good!
Madras Curry —  A hot and tangy South Indian curry powder, excellent for eggs or meat curries, or to add interest and colour to soups, sauces, dips and stews.
Moroccan Blend (Ras el Hanout) — This is considered the pinnacle of all spice blends. It is used in tagine cooking, or casseroles, to season lamb and chicken. Excellent on grilled lamb chops
Thai Coconut Green Curry — This is an exotic combination of spicy/sweet flavour to soups, sauces, rice, noodles, fish and chicken. Green Thai chilis and exotic spices tempered with sweet coconut powder, lime and a little brown sugar.
Veg Love — This spice enhances the naturally delicious flavour of vegetables with a nice balance of sweet from brown sugar granules, a little heat from capsaicins, salt and savoury spices.
