July 19th Wine SuggestionsJuly 20, 2010 7:05 AMOur new series with Jean-Sébastien Morin kicked off on Monday. The Sommelier for the PEI Liquor Control Commission introduced us two a couple of white wines to compliment fresh seafood dishes.Mouton Cadet White $16.99AOC Bordeaux, FranceProduct #: 10240zMouton Cadet is produced by the Rothhschild family of Bordeaux. It is a lively, light-bodied blend of Sauvignon blanc (60%); Semillon (30%) and Muscadelle (10%).Suggested Food Pairings: Sole or haddock in white wine and butter and other simple and light fish and seafood preparationsGoats Do Roam White $14.29Wine of Origin Western CapeSouth AfricaProduct #: 11535zThe name Goats Do Roam is an ironic tip of the hat to the famous French appelation Côtes du Rhône. The blend of Viognier (54%); Grenache Blanc (40%); and Rousanne (6%) is also typical of the Rhône Valley but it is done here with decidedly South African flair: aromas of ripe pears and a hint of nutmeg with an unctuous almost creamy mouthfeel. And yes, goats actually do roam in the vineyards or at least nearby.Suggested Food Pairings: Seafood pasta in cream sauce, orange-glazed chicken or pork

Online PharmaciesJune 2, 2010 10:02 AM
Tracy Lightfoot was by on Wednesday to tell us about some of the things to watch for when using an online pharmacy. We also found this useful site from Health Canada on how to safely buy your prescriptions over the internet.
Hint: In most cases Tracy found the prices at the local drug store beat the online prices.
