We had a busy Thanksgiving weekend and we’d like to give our thanks to the fantastic organizers and staff who ran the Craftoberfest event on Friday and Saturday for making it that way! We’d also like to thank you, for keeping us hard at work cutting French fries and making delicious sliders well into the night. We’re very excited for next year’s event, having made it through the inaugural year at Kitchener Market and gotten a feel for it. We heard a lot of good things about our food, had a great time despite long hours, and got to try a lot of amazing beers from local producers.
Speaking of which – coming up next Thursday evening, the 19th is Taps and Apps at the Walper Hotel which has many more participating local restaurants and benefits Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Waterloo Region. We’ll be there doing some crostini versions of Tom Yum Chicken, Roast Beef and Horseradish, and Brown Butter Squash to pair with the delicious beers being offered.
After a long wait, it’s finally time for the brown butter squash sandwich to make a comeback on our menu. We never would have guessed that a vegetarian sandwich would be among our most requested, but we are pretty proud of this one. We roast butternut and acorn squashes in the oven until tender, then scoop them and blend with Monforte goat’s cheese, warm spices and seasonings. This mixture gets spread on seven-grain toast and topped with pickled carrot ribbons and fresh sunflower sprouts. The whole thing then gets drizzled with browned seasoned butter. Sound good? Tastes better!
Did you know that the wrappers from our sandwiches come with a $1 off coupon you can tear off? Think of it as card-less loyalty card that pays more frequently!
We want to thank all of our wonderful repeat customers who have collectively brought back over 1,000 coupons torn from our wrappers. One one hand, we’ve lost a bit of profit, but on the other, we’re happy to bring you guys back and offer an incentive (beyond getting a tasty sandwich made from great ingredients) on frequenting our shop.
