The Flying Pig is Rethinking Plastic Straws 590 590 Russ Jahns

The Flying Pig is Rethinking Plastic Straws

Beginning Thursday February 1st, The Flying Pig and WildTale Restaurants will no longer use plastic straws and offer Paper Straws on request.

It’s estimated the world uses 1 billion unrecyclable plastic straws a day – 500 million in the United States alone – an untold number of which end up in the ocean, polluting the water and coastlines and posing a deadly threat to sea turtles and other marine animals.

Plastics, including straws, continue to clog our oceans, with researchers suggesting there are more than 5 trillion pieces of it swirling in the water. Smaller pieces appear to be getting eaten by fish and travelling up the food chain.

Things to consider:

Straws represent “a clear example of completely unnecessary single use plastic that is used for an average of just 20 minutes then discarded,” write the organizers of The Final Straw Cornwall campaign.

“Every straw on the planet right now will outlive everyone reading these words.”

In an effort to do our part to curb this growing problem, we at The Flying Pig will start with something small, such as stopping the use single-use plastic straws.

Please help us in our quest to keep our coastlines and oceans clean and sustainable.

Margaret’s Maple Sugar Pie

There’s no maple syrup in this pie recipe (not a mistake), but the finished product will remind you of maple-sugar candies thanks to the caramel notes in the brown sugar.

 

A perennial favourite on our dessert menu, we were honoured that Bon Appétit chose to feature this amazing pie.

WELCOME TO “VANGROOVY:” A PERFECT VANCOUVER VACATION

Posted in Articles |  by 

Who says you can’t have it all?

You want breathtaking natural beauty? You want the “coolest of the cool” cosmopolitan cities? You want unlimited opportunities for outdoor fun? You want world-class shopping with items you can’t find anywhere else? You want a foodie’s paradise?

Welcome to Vancouver…aptly nicknamed “VanGroovy.”

Vancouver is, quite simply, one of the most beautiful places on Earth with its stunning big mountain panoramas and some of the bluest water you’ve ever laid eyes on. It’s green here year round, even when much of Canada is buried in snow or dried up with summer drought.

And look around, you’ll see that that Vancouverites are as beautiful as their surroundings! They’re a young, hip, laid-back multi-cultural population, where people appear fit and stylish. Greenpeace, the 100-Mile Diet and Botox were created here. It’s easy to see how to stay fit in Vancouver with abundant running, cycling and hiking opportunities.

And it’s easy to see how one can live the “good life” here…with the city’s incredible restaurants of every ethnic variety and fabulous shopping venues. It’s no wonder that Vancouver is routinely named one of the world’s most livable cities.

There’s so much to see and do, but if you have just a few days to enjoy a family vacation, here are some of my family’s favorites.

Gastown

For our “farewell evening,” we did it up right! We headed to the ever-so-charming Gastown, the historic center of the city. We adored wandering the cobblestone streets and dropping into unique boutiques, trendy coffee shops, first-class restaurants and taking photos with the area’s iconic “Gassy” Steam Clock.

It was tough selecting our final dinner destination among all of the fabulous options, but we made a great choice! Our dinner at the chic, yet cozy Flying Pig was phenomenal!! This “nouveau Canadian Bistro” is super family-friendly and serves up truly gourmet dishes at a great value. You must try the Honey Mussels & Frites, the Lobster and Prawn Risotto, the Crispy Brussels Sprouts, the Maple and Mustard Crusted Port Rack, and the Pan Seared Halibut. And the desserts were spectacular, too!
