Winner will be announced here on the EAT website (EATmagazine.ca). Closes Jan 30.


Breakfast reflects the culture we live in. In Italy, Romans stop at cafes for a cappuccino and cornetti; the Japanese slurp down bowls of miso soup with a side of rice, a piece of cooked fish and some pickled vegetables; while in India the day begins with thin lentil crepes (called dosas), dips and chutneys.

Here in Victoria, we love our big, hearty breakfasts and on Sunday mornings, long line-ups can be seen on Herald and Pandora for brunch. While the egg benny and bacon ‘n eggs aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, the first meal of day might now incorporate foods from other cultures as well as healthy additions such as grains and veggies. Try the Creole breakfast bowl with heirloom brown rice and spicy red beans at Caffe Fantastico Roastery or the sprouted chickpea falafel, fried egg, & olives on sweet potato flat bread at Be Love.

So don’t skip breakfast; there’s a whole new world of morning meals waiting for you. On page 28, dig into our take on Breakfast 2016 with a savoury and sweet recipe sure to please.­
