July 1 Canada day !


July 1 is months away, I know but……

I have lived in Canada for all of my life, I have eaten everything from bannock to moose to dulse to smoked meats and loads of seafood, for the life of me I can’t put my finger on what 1 meal is Canadian , so I decided to have one standout recipe from each Province and Territory and post all that I pick and give you credit. (I like to have recipes for 4) but I will adjust for my needs.

I will also need the best wine from your Province or Territory

 If you have any suggestions or know someone who would like to contribute please please please write your ideas on my blog on the Contact Page. #debonfare @debfayant debonfare.ca  @fayantdeborah

What I Love


I am no expert on wine pairings, but I know what I like to drink with my food. My choices of wine with each recipe is just my opinion and I would appreciate  any and all suggestions you may have. Some of my favorite wines are not that common, but are gaining favor like Zinfandel from the U.S., Viognier from France, Rioja from Spain and Dao  from Portugal all different and excellent in their own right. I also love a light Gruner Veltliner from Austria and golden lemony schnitzel and the boldness of Malbec from Argentina with a charred bbq steak. New world Cabernet, Merlot and Chardonnay are extremely distinctive and enjoyable and did you know that Pinot Noir goes well with seared tuna ? Try some bubbly for dinner as well, like Cava, Procceco or a Sparkling Blush wine also a great Riesling goes well with spicy Asian foods. So try my recipes and enjoy with a great glass of wine !!! #debonfare
