A while back I shared my Hawaiian-inspired seared tuna dish… well I made it up again, this time using oil from the Eau Claire Oil & Vinegar Bar to cook the tuna. I used my favourite Furikake seasoning to coat the tuna steak… and created SO much NOM.

A while back I posted on Instagram a photo of Agedashi tofu – I made it for dinner for me and a friend when he joked just one too many times about my inability to cook. (I CAN cook, I just don’t LIKE to cook usually…) His reaction to a dish that I think is quite nice (especially when someone else makes it) was “how come all of these things that aren’t fish, taste like fish?”

Eau Claire Oil & Vinegar bar

If you’ve followed me on Instagram or on my Facebook page, you’ve likely seen the Eau Claire Oil & Vinegar bar pop up more than once.
Ages ago I visited a cool similar bar in Victoria, BC, and loved it… but didn’t know of any place in Calgary that offered a similar experience and product. Then before last Christmas I stumbled upon the one in Eau Claire Market in downtown Calgary and loved it!

Inside the Eau Claire Oil & Vinegar bar - such a clean, stylish shop!

I love being able to sample the flavours in advance (and have taken a few friends to do the same), and love that they suggest pairings to make really lovely flavours. I will use flavoured balsamic vinegars and extra virgin olive oil for a bunch of different dishes… but in the end I keep coming back to salads- because I don’t normally LIKE salad- and tossing on a really special dressing makes it WAY easier to get more greens into my day.

Today I’ll share some photos from inside the shop, and in a future post I’ll share some of my salad creations.

p.s. – how do you like my new graphics? I’m trying something new with my Instagram feed and thought I’d bring some of the photos over here too!
