Bolognese Sauce - Epicure Selections

Bolognese Sauce - Epicure Selections

Tonight's Supper was a thick, rich Bolognese Sauce made with spices that I received from Epicure Selections. I was so excited when I received a box of their products. It was like Christmas in August.

Epicure Selections is a company based in Victoria on Vancouver Island. I love local products. We have access to great cheeses, wine etc. on this Island. I was delighted when I learned that the Founder & President, Sylvie Rochette, is originally from Québec, the province I was borned and raised. This working mother started creating her own spice blends to offer Canadian families a way to prepare quick, healthy, delicious meals after a long day at work. Soon her products where in high demand and she did founded Epicure Selections. This year the company was awarded Business of the Year by the Victoria Chamber of Commerce. This shows that when you have dedication, commitment and work hard you can fulfil your dreams. What an example to follow. I love stories of successful woman.

Epicure Selections offers not only spices but also dip, salsa, salad dressing mixes, peppers, jellies, chocolate, popcorn seasonings, cookware, recipe books just to name a few. You can go to their website and browse their beautiful catalogue.

They even have a great section when you have access to a ton of recipes that featured their products.

On Sunday I am flying to Ottawa in Ontario for a week, with my son Maxime, to moved him in his new appartment. He is starting University on Sep. 8th. When I get back I will run a contest and one lucky winner will win Epicure products. Since I received my box I had made a great chicken souvlaki, while I was camping and a delicious dill dip. More recipes and reviews are coming soon.

  5. I went to an Epicure party a few years back and the stuff is really nice. I love the jars. Their products are just a bit too pricey for my modest budget, unfortunately.

  27. Salut Helene,

    I'm also an Epicure fan, so much so I became an Epicure consultant 2 years ago. What an exciting business to be part of! Epicure's new fall/winter products are so wonderful. I'd love to share a copy of our new brochure with you. Let me know where to send so I can get one out to you.

    Regards,

    The prices are very reasonable, and the company provides recipes with cost per serving so you can see how much you save. Your Epicure consultant can help you earn free products simply by sharing with your friends. Check the website to find one near you.
