Recipes from Ottawa Restaurants via the Ottawa Citizen [Cooking]

2008 Mar 5
Years ago, The Ottawa Citizen's Food Section (on Wensday's), had a feature, where readers would write in and request recipes from local retaurants.


I still use two of those recipes, to this day. With some little modification.

They are 1)Zola's Zolas Restaurant recipe for Prosciutto Mushroom Linguini and 2)
The Savana Cafe's Savana Café Pad Thai (International Stylee (i.e. ketchup based) as opposed to Traditional Stylee (i.e. tamarind based).






Does anyone remember the Citizen feature and/or have used any of the recipes ?

Hey Nanook (of the North?),

Here is a scan of the recipe card (remember those?). It was transcribed by 'the mother of my children' and the artistic embellishments are from said children.

We went to Savana Cafe shortly after it opened. I think they celebrating 20 years , this year .... so the recipe card is circa 1988.


Back then , hardly anyone new what Pad Thai was so, they called it "Thai Spicy Noodles" on their menu. Thus the title on the recipe.



I haven't looked at it for many many years... I 'just make it' now.



Send e-mail (at my profile page) and I'll send anyone a clear scan.


NOTE: Use Memmi Sauce and do not sub in soya sauce.

SteffQC: Sweetgrass serves both Bannock and Navajo Fry Bread. If you Google them there's recipes out there that are probably very similar.
