Sabatier Canada : Smashed Chicken Roasted with Herbs, Orange, Prosciutto and Brandy

I worked on a project with Sabatier Canada a while back. If you're not familiar :

Sabatier’s rich history is steeped in the traditions of excellence and time-honoured craftsmanship. Quality products utilizing premium materials are hallmarks of this world renowned brand. The Sabatier brand dates back to 1812, to a small workshop in the Thiers region of France.  Philippe Sabatier, a local craftsman, meticulously designed and produced a highly innovative kitchen knife, which rapidly grew in popularity across the region amongst professional cooks and butchers. To keep up with demand, Philippe recruited members of his family to help with production. Today, staying true to its European roots, Sabatier branded products exude refined elegance with contemporary tones garnering universal appeal. The trademark griffin insignia continues to guarantee the professional quality of distinctive Sabatier products.

I was tasked with creating 8 original recipes to be featured on the Sabatier Canada website, of which the Smashed Chicken pictured above is one. Here's the link to the chicken recipe, and, make sure to check out the other recipes I created. Also, have a look at the recipes some of my awesome fellow Canadian blogger friends created too!

M&M Meat Shops : Recipe Development : Southwest Sausage Frittata

I recently had a pretty cool opportunity to develop two brand new recipes for M&M Meat Shops, the only requirement being, to use a minimum of one M&M product in each recipe.


Have you ever been to an M&M Meat Shop? Well, I have, but not for a long time so I didn't realize the sheer amount of selection I was to have at my disposal. Meats, vegetables, breads, fruit - the list goes on and on. Once I saw the boxes of sausage though, I kind of had an idea as to what I wanted to make and I gotta tell you, after testing this baby a few times to make sure it worked, I'm REALLY happy I settled on a frittata. Frittata is kind of like a quiche without the crust and it is SO GOOD. With all of the spices, especially the earthy goodness of cumin, plus, mild Italian sausages, corn, onion and spinach, this thing is basically the perfect breakfast.

You can see my two recipes, as well as some other fabulous Canadian blogger's recipes, on the M&M Meats website.
