Today I’ve taken a recipe from Nadiya’s Time to Eat (both a Netflix show and a Cookbook) and swapped out the ingredients for Fairtrade ones. I try to support local brands where I can and make sure they are certified by Fair Trade Canada. I also try my best to support local markets when buying ingredients and this time I went to Strathcona Market to buy everything!
If you’d like to see this recipe made Live, there is a video on my Instagram Page where I show you exactly how to make today’s treats! After lots of voting, you all decided that chocolate truffles would be what we make today. I’m so excited these won because they are so quick and easy to make and require only 3 items!
I have been working in the fair trade industry for awhile now and even I need to learn the latest terms and definitions companies are using to describe themselves. A few months ago, I wrote a blog about all the different fair trade certifications and their key differences. Today, I’m going to do a quick run through of the top terms I see being used!
A couple weeks ago he joined the meeting with a banana oatmeal chocolate chip cookie and I HAD to have the recipe. I’m always looking for new creations to bake and I especially get excited when almost all of the ingredients used can be bought fair trade. The original recipe is from Chef Savvy but I have written it here for you including the local and ethical brands I buy from.
I get the pleasure of interviewing several vendors throughout the Virtual Market week and learning more about what they do. I always see trends and hear similar themes so I’ve decided to bring those together here with the Five Things I Learned from the Virtual Market 2.0.
