Ice Cream & Donuts
If you’re in the mood for something sweet and delicious, head up to Avenue H and pick up some treats from Fable Ice Cream and Darkside Donuts. The line-ups went round the block when The Night Oven Bakery sold doughnuts, so Bryn Rawlyk decided to open a separate store just for doughnuts. Darkside will have some regular flavours, but they also plan to push the limits and try out some “super weird stuff”.
Making Death Part of Life
A no-tech philosophy of fermentation: “Modern life makes fermentation unintuitive and difficult. But it’s precisely this practice that can help us come to a different way of thinking and approaching the world. A world where fermentation is integrated into our daily life might be a bit messier, but it would also be more caring to the many life forms with whom we co-exist. Perhaps it would be a world that lends itself to contemplation, letting us ponder the transition of life to death, rather than fearing it, hiding it away.”

Last week I wrote about Yvema’s Bannock House that is selling African donuts with a local label. I wondered if there would be a public outcry that this was cultural appropriation so I was interested to read an article in The Guardian, which says, “Much of the joy of food lies in sharing: the passing of dishes across the table; the adoption of new ingredients and techniques. Curries and pasta have become staple parts of the British diet, while Malaysian hawkers use an Australian malted chocolate drink to make “roti Milo”. Even if some adaptations have niche appeal – durian pizza, anyone? – exchange enriches us all.”
