Hello everyone,

Carol and I are so excited to get this newsletter out to you, we can hardly stand it – SO many amazing things in the works. Read on dear friends, it’s ALL about YOU!


Carol and I are on our way to the FAIRMONT JASPER PARK LODGE in Alberta to attend CHRISTMAS IN NOVEMBER, Canada’s premier culinary, food and drink festival. This year’s presenters include Anna and Michael Olson, Elizabeth Baird and Emily Richards, Ned Bell, Vikram Vij, Cory Christopher, Chuck Hughes and many more!. I’m hosting the event and also teaching classes on Festive Party Foods. Carol will be super-busy while we’re there too, posting photos and videos of our adventures. Please make sure you’re connected to our social media accounts to share in the joy! For those of you attending CIN, we can’t wait to see you there!


We’ll be broadcasting our next Facebook LIVE direct from Jasper Park Lodge on Thursday, November 2 at 12 noon EDT. We’re going to bring you our update on all of the amazing stuff happening at WATC, plus (drum roll, please) we’re going to announce the details of the incredible gift that’s up for grabs in our November Contest Giveaway.


Regular subscribers know that we often reference shopping expeditions to St. Lawrence Market. On Saturday, November 18 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m., Weekend at the Cottage will be in the south kitchen of the Saturday Farmer’s Market, located in the white tent at Esplanade and Lower Jarvis. We’ll be serving up some delicious seasonal recipes (until we run out!) made with the superior ingredients available at the market. Hope to see you there!


We’re back at CHCH Morning Live on Tuesday, November 28th this time offering decor and entertaining ideas for the holidays. Whether you’re relaxed and casual or, over-the-top and fancy, we’ll inspire you to make your holiday parties and get-togethers both festive and memorable.


Here are links to last month’s most popular posts: ASIAN NOODLE SOUP, INDIVIDUAL TURKEY POT PIES, SWISS APPLE PANCAKE and a very popular City Slicker video for those mile-high cheese puffs, POGAČICE. Bon appétit!


We’re hoping our November lineup gets everyone revved up for the holidays. I know many of you will be amazed by LEE LUM’S FAMOUS LEMON CHICKEN, a classic recipe from NYC’s famed, but now closed, Pearl’s Restaurant. Party foods include our BAKED CRAB DIP DIABLO and the beginning of our HOLIDAY COOKIE series. We also have some stunning holiday décor ideas thanks to the talented CORY CHRISTOPHER, and finally, a pledge to make America bake again! We’ve shot a video of our now famous SPICED PUMPKIN PIE RECIPE. We’ll be posting it in time for American Thanksgiving.


Well what can we say, this truly is our most incredible contest giveaway to date, and we have our amazing friends at CANADIAN TIRE to thank. Make sure to tune into our Facebook LIVE broadcast on November 2, or head to the website to see the contest details! We’re calling it the ULTIMATE NOMA HOLIDAY LIGHTING PACKAGE. We know we’re going to make someone VERY happy this holiday season – who knows it might be YOU!


As always, we’d love to hear from you. Post a comment or send a message directly and also look for us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

Big Hugs,

Nik and Carol
