Standard

Some of you know him as Blair and Teri White’s son. A few of you recognize him as the nephew of Bill and Bob White. I know him because he is my neighbour, Joyce White’s grandson. It doesn’t matter how you met him, you should be aware that the fourteen year old High-Schooler is an up and coming triple threat to the Food Network chefs.

Ben and his brother Emmett share my Celiac disease, so all Ben’s recipes are gluten-free. His Mother has also set up a Facebook page called Go Gluten Free so everyone can share their gluten free recipes. As he told his father, local plumber, Blair White,

Dad, you fix peoples pipes, I fix up people’s tastebuds

So if you have read our regular Chef Ben Sunday column you know all this. But, what you don’t know is that Ben White was a guest chef at last Tuesday’s Ladies Who Lunch at the Museum of Nature in Ottawa. I will let Ben tell you about his experience in his own words.

“I competed in a cook off at an event called Ladies Who Lunch at the Museum of Nature in Ottawa. I was invited to the event but I didn’t know what I was going to do. I had seen a man and a women walk by me in a chef’s coat and hat but I had no idea what they were going to do next. As I was standing at the back of the room, I heard my named called and I was selected to be one of the sous chefs. I was so excited, and was going to cook with Chef Carly. As soon as the other sous chef was picked we started whipping up salads and sauteing shrimp. Within 20 minutes we completed dishes of sauteed shrimp with a corn, black bean, and quinoa salad as well as a melon. There was an apple and marshmallow salad as marshmallows were the Mystery Ingredient. It was really fun cooking with Carly and I would love to do it again!”

It was a great learning experience for me! Thanks to Ladies Who Lunch!

For more pictures, my mother Teri White has an album on her wall full of pictures from the event.

Classic Belgain Waffles

aben5aben6
(original Recipe Emeril Lagasse)
2 cups flour mixture of choice
1 tsp Xanthem Gum
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, separated
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons butter(coconut oil or Crisco)melted
2 cups* milk ( I have used rice milk & Almond milk too!)
non-stick cooking spray
Directions
Preheat the waffle iron according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

In 1 medium bowl sift together flour’s, guar gum, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a second bowl use the wooden spoon to beat together the egg yolks and sugar until sugar is completely dissolved and eggs have turned a pale yellow.
Add the vanilla extract, melted butter, and milk to the eggs and whisk to combine.

Combine the egg-milk mixture with the flour mixture and whisk just until blended. Do not over mix.

In third bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form, about 1 minute. Using the rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the waffle batter. Do not over mix!

Coat the waffle iron with non-stick cooking spray and pour enough batter in iron to just cover waffle grid. Close and cook as per manufacturer’s instructions until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

• Depending on the milk used you may need to add more our less to be a nice consistency to pour easily.

Enjoy!

Unfurling Teri White of Swirlicious — Ladies Who Lunch

Standard

You have met Amanda McNeely and Cathie Hawkins McOrmond who are part of our working team for your Ladies Who Lunch date on June 6th. Here is another one of our members ready to put this shindig all together. When we have all the details next week a formal announcement will be made.

Anywhere she goes with her pop-up boutique on wheels, Teri White creates a unique environment. She treats her customers to what you can’t find locally at prices you can actually afford. Whether it be home or office trunk shows, or even fundraising opportunities–Teri created Swirlicious to meet the needs of the person who wants something special that is hand stamped.

Teri listens to what people want, and delivers products that women love. “It’s not all about me,” as she says, so her one-of-a-kind hand stamped pieces lets your imagination run wild. Her exceptional flair for design and attention to detail make each item as special as you.

As a designer in many aspects of her life, Teri became intrigued with finding unique items that would stand out in a crowd while being affordable and fun to wear. Rather than scooping up fast-fashion pieces that could fall apart in months, she offers quality product that will last for seasons.

As a bonus, shoppers local to the Ottawa Valley, have a chance to come and visit her home studio. Teri will personally be on hand to help customers style their choices of either jewelery, purses, hats, scarves and more. Swirlicious offers fashion and flair with an element of surprise.


Teri has been in business since 2006 originally on Etsy and a full online web site for the past 2 years. Her business is independently owned and operated (with a small staff of a husband & 2 boys to help out.) Swirlicious is currently open by appointment, so please contact her for your personal shopping experience.
