    While one crisis makes it into the news every day, a second crisis makes for more sporadic headlines despite its own deadly impact. In my home province of Alberta (aka third wave overachiever for COVID cases per capita), the opioid crisis has also been raging. 2020 has been the worst year for opioid-related deaths with 1144 deaths or 25.7 deaths per 100,000 person years. To put that in context, it nearly matches the tragic death rate from COVID at the time (1389 lives lost over a similar time frame from March 2020 to Jan 2021 – though the COVID numbers have certainly surged and worsened since then) – no one should have to die of this, let alone that many individuals.

    Reminiscent of how the Ontario Ford government decided to revoke the two hard-won mandated paid sick days in 2018 right on time for a pandemic, the Kenney government had put forth a similarly ineffective abstinence-only “Alberta Model” to address the opioid crisis predicated upon the false notion that harm reduction is counterproductive to recovery. Under this policy, they’ve attempted to defund life-saving harm reduction initiatives all while increasing funding for private abstinence-only recovery services (some reportedly run by business owners with ties to government officials). And just a couple of days ago, it was announced that they would shutter Calgary’s sole supervised consumption site.

    This is not a policy informed by evidence, compassion or care for people’s lives or chance of recovery. The standard of care for opioid use disorder IS opioid agonist therapy. The most common option, buprenorphine, is a partial opioid receptor agonist (activator) which allows it to prevent cravings and withdrawal. As only a partial agonist, it is safe and doesn’t cause overdoses or highs. Canadian clinical practice guidelines firmly recommend avoiding abstinence-only treatment as it is both ineffective and dangerous, putting patients at higher risk of relapse, overdose and death. Harm reduction practices such as safe consumption sites and needle exchange programs help people stay alive – and staying alive gives people a chance to access treatment services and recover when they are ready to do so.

    So rather than evidence, the “Alberta Model” is based on rhetoric, prejudice and partisanship. The government-issued report on supervised consumption sites (SCS), which laid the groundwork for recent events, is a stunning example of this: a one-sided narrative questionably linking SCS to crime (see also this journal article with more details on the many flaws) and a perfect tool for Kenney’s political agenda. Notably, the government report completely disregarded the remarkable health impacts of SCS on overdose prevention and saving lives in lieu of tales of “social disorder” SCS in Alberta have had a 100% success rate in preventing overdose death.

    That brings us to the announced closure of Calgary’s SCS, Safeworks. While it will be replaced with sites at other (still undisclosed) locations, the current site had been chosen after careful study for its central location, and concentration of overdose deaths, drug use equipment and emergency calls (prior to the SCS) in the area. After years in operation, Safeworks had built relationships and trust with users of the site. To lose this site based on a biased report and flawed assessment methods is another tragedy. Following the pattern in other cities across Alberta, it sounds like the UCP wants SCS out of sight and out of mind, without considering more nuanced solutions that incorporate the needs of all members of the community and most importantly, focus on saving lives.

    To keep up to date on the story from advocates and community perspectives, I recommend following @street.cats.yyc and @thetable.yyc.

    Here’s another black forest adaptation: cream puff edition. Choux with cocoa craquelin, cherry kirsch compote, chocolate pastry cream, a massive swirl of whipped cream and cherries. It’s simple, straightforwards, and hits on all the same flavours as black forest cake!

    Black forest cream puffs

    Craquelin adapted from Bouchon Bakery by Thomas Keller and Sebastien Rouxel. Choux adapted from Alain Ducasse. Chocolate pastry cream adapted from The Flavour Bender.

    choux pastry

    • 43g butter
    • 90g milk
    • pinch kosher salt
    • sprinkle of granulated sugar
    • 45g whole wheat flour
    • 1 ½ eggs (may not use all – this time around I only needed 60g-ish, but it will always depend!)

    chocolate pastry cream

    • 6g cornstarch
    • 3g cocoa powder
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
    • pinch salt
    • 180g whole milk
    • 30g chopped dark chocolate
    • 1 generous tbsp of kirsch

    cherry kirsch compote

    Mix all ingredients together until it forms a cohesive dough. Place the dough between two sheets of parchment and roll out to a thickness of 1-2mm. Slide onto a pan and freeze until firm.

    choux pastry,

    Preheat the oven to 400F. Line a baking pan with a sheet of parchment paper – on the backside, trace twelve 4.5cm circles.

    Place the butter, milk, sugar and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Add the flour and quickly mix in with a wooden spoon. Lower the heat and continue to cook the mixture until it forms a ball. Remove the pastry from the heat and let cool a bit before adding the egg.

    Beat the eggs in a small bowl. Add a bit at a time to the pastry. Assess the consistency of the dough after each addition of egg and stop once you’ve achieved the right consistency. I find it easiest to begin beating in the eggs with a wire whisk and then transition back to stirring with a wooden spoon once the batter loosens. The dough should be shiny, but not fluid (if its something a bit new to you, look up a video or a more detailed tutorial for the right consistency – such as looking for the “triangle” of dough!). Importantly, you don’t need to use all the egg – or you may need a bit more or less!

    Transfer the pastry to a piping bag fitted with a large round tip. Pipe the pastry onto the 4.5cm circles. Take the craquelin out of the freezer and cut 5cm circles from the dough. Top each puff with a round of the craquelin.

    Bake for 10 minutes at 400F, then decrease temperature to 375F and bake about 30 minutes more or until well browned. You can rotate the puffs after they’ve been in the oven for 20-25 minutes or so, once there are no worries of them deflating. As soon as you can handle the puffs, cut a small slit on the bottom of each puff to let the steam release and let cool on on a wire rack.

    chocolate pastry cream

    In a bowl whisk together the cornstarch, cocoa powder, egg yolk, sugar and salt. If it’s very thick add a spoonful of the milk as needed.

    Place the chopped chocolate in a separate bowl and set aside.

    Place the milk in a saucepan and heat until it just comes to a simmer. Slowly pour into the egg yolk mixture while whisking constantly to temper the egg yolks. Transfer back to the saucepan and return to the heat being sure to whisk constantly. Cook the pastry cream until it begins to bubble and pop and continue to cook it at a bubble for 1 minute.

    Pour the pastry cream over the chopped chocolate and whisk until the chocolate melts in. Lastly, whisk in the kirsch. Cover and chill completely.

    cherry kirsch compote

    Place the chopped cherries and kirsch together in a small saucepan. Cook together until the cherries are soft and the juices have thickened. You can add sugar as needed if the cherries are not very sweet. Chill completely.

    Cut a lid from the top of each puff. Spoon a bit of cherry compote into each puff and press into the bottom.

    Transfer the chocolate pastry cream to a piping bag – I like to use one of those long narrow filling tips to help get into all the corners – and fill up to the top with pastry cream.

    Whip the cream and transfer to a piping bag fitted with a large French tip. This is just enough cream to pipe a couple of swirls on top of each puff.

    Lastly, nestle a cherry ontop of each swirl of cream. Best eaten day of assembly.


    Where to get it: Brennan's, New Orleans
    Bananas foster has made its way onto the menus of many a fancy steakhouse in the past several decades, but for the truest rendition, go to the source: Brennan's, where this treat made with butter, sugar, cinnamon, and liquor-soaked bananas was invented. At Brennan's, the dessert is still flambéed tableside. If you're feeling ambitious, you can also try to replicate the recipe at home (but keep a fire extinguisher close at hand).

    Secrets To Throwing A Stress- (And Guilt-) Free Holiday Party

    We’re here for you, and we have a little secret: you don’t need to slave away baking a 7-tiered sugar plum tart to impress your friends. Just try these festive, easy-prep activities and serve these better-for-you holiday treats. Voila—you’ve got a no-sweat, Pinterest-worthy party on your hands!

    Cheese cubes? Boring! Not to mention heavy and labor intensive. (All that slicing? No thanks!) Get your salty, cheesy fix from Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar Puffs instead. The cloud-light puffs are packed with white cheddar flavor worthy of a true foodie’s cheese board. Made from wholesome corn and rice, the gluten-free morsels pack just 140 calories per serving.

    Serve It: Simply pop open the bag and pour these tasty treasures into a festive bowl. Could that be any easier?

    Do It: Make marshmallow snowmen

    Toss a few bags of marshmallows (small, medium, and large) onto the table along with some toothpicks, chocolate syrup, and our seasonal favorite—sprinkles. Tell everyone to make their best marshmallow snowman. Winner eats all.

    Bear Nibbles Bear Real Fruit YoYos

    This snack will release your inner child! And we see absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    Bear Nibbles Bear Real Fruit YoYos taste as good as the fruit snacks of your childhood. But these treats have no added sugar or preservatives. Each adorable little roll is made of fruits and vegetables and nothing else.

    Serve It: Set the yoyos on a platter and encourage your guests to play with their food.

    Got paper and pencils? Check. Have your guests write letters to Santa. Read ’em aloud afterwards for some good laughs.

    Mediterranea Extra Virgin Olive Oil Seawater Potato Chips

    Here’s a potato chip that’s also a conversation starter. Mediterranea Extra Virgin Olive Oil Seawater Potato Chips are missing an ingredient most other chips have way too much of: dehydrated salt. Mediterranea soaks their potatoes in seawater, so the spuds suck up flavor and minerals before they’re even fried.

    We love that these chips are full of sea minerals, including chloride, magnesium, and potassium—good-for-you nutrients that often disappear in processing.

    Serve It: Create a mermaid-worthy display by arranging plates in a “bubblesque” pattern and spreading the chips on top. If you’re up to crafting a paper fish to compliment your spread, then go for it!

    Do It: “Edit” your favorite holiday song

    Print out the lyrics to your favorite song and white/black out words and phrases throughout. Pass the paper around and have your friends write in their new-and-improved lyrics. Guess what? When the song is complete again, you get to sing it!

    No holiday party would be complete without a little candy! Luckily, OCHO makes organic, non-GMO candy bars you can feel good about eating and serving. The bars are perfectly sized to give you just the right amount of sweetness.

    Enrobed in milk chocolate, the classic Caramel and Peanut Bar keeps candy purists smiling, while the rich dark chocolate and exotic flavor of the Coconut Bar satisfies the chocolate connoisseurs.

    Serve It: Arrange the bars in circles to make festive “wreaths.” You can even add paper bows if you happen to have any.

    Do It: Schokoladenessen (The Chocolate Game)

    To play this German party game , you’ll need kitchen utensils, wrapped chocolate (see above), dice, a hat, a scarf, and gloves. The first person to roll a double dons the winter accessories and unwraps (tries to unwrap) the chocolate using the utensils. Everyone else laughs.

    Good Day Chocolate’s limited edition Holiday 4-Pack comes ready-made for your holiday party table. You get a festive red package stuffed with four different beneficial chocolate supplements—Sleep, Calm, Energy, and Turmeric.

    What’s a chocolate supplement, you ask? It’s what you would get if your favorite chocolate married your daily supplement. Good Day mixes premium chocolate with high-performance nutraceuticals to achieve the benefit touted on each colorful package.

    Serve It: Good Day’s packaging is so adorable, you can simply pop open the packages and serve.

    This activity is equal parts sneaky and savvy. You’ll get much-needed help putting all those hand-me-down ornaments from Mom on your tree…and your friends will love helping. Be sure to put on holiday music and take requests.

    Clif Whey Protein Coconut Almond Chocolate

    Step aside, sugar – make way for the protein! Protein bars may seem unusual for a holiday party, but when have you ever played by the rules?

    Besides, these treats have enough flavor to make your average cookie hang its head in shame. The bars have 14 grams of protein per serving—just the right energy boost to keep your party roaring. And you can brag that the bars are made with cocoa that’s certified by the Rainforest Alliance.

    Serve It: Cut out a square of wrapping paper and place the bars on top. If you’re feeling super motivated, then you can also cut up the bars to make “petit fours.” Mom would be so proud.

    Do It: Take family photos

    All you need for this activity is friends and a cell phone. You can even provide props (ugly sweaters, hats, and antlers) and arrange some chairs to make the tableau as hilariously awkward as possible.

    Bonus snack: Your NEW signature holiday trail mix

    This mashup is only for the bold. But don’t you agree that parties are perfect for trying out new recipes?

    + Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar Puffs

    + Mediterranea Extra Virgin Olive Oil Seawater Potato Chips

    + Assorted pantry fillers (we recommend pretzels and dried cranberries)

    Oh, and don’t forget to name your mix. We’re thinking something like “Kringle Krack.”

    How to make cocoa puff cereal bars?

    • Melt butter in a large pot over low heat
    • Add in marshmallows and stir until fully melted
    • Remove from heat and stir in the cereal (make sure to stir really well!)
    • Press into a prepared baking dish and let cool
    • Cut and enjoy!

    Why did my cereal bars turn out brittle?

    This typically happens if you melt the marshmallows to fast over too high of heat. (I’ve done this too many times so I know!)

    For the best gooey marshmallow cereal bars, be patient and melt everything over low heat.

    If I’m making these as a gift I like to buy the tall clear goodie bags and place 2-3 cereal bars in there.
