WHAT’S NEW Drink pink

For the longest time, the strict Prosecco DOC Consortium forbade its wineries from making a pink version of the beloved sparkler.

Homemade vegetable stock is an import- ant building block of plant-based cooking, especially in fall. Here are three umami-rich additions to take it to the next level.

Casillero del Diablo Reserva Devil’s Collection Red LCBO 436956, $15.95

KOMBU NATION For every 4 cups (1 L) of water, soak a hand- size piece of dried kombu for 30 minutes. Bring it to a boil over medium-high heat and strain over the vegetables for your stock.

CAP IT Add a few dried shiitake mushrooms to the pot to create a deep, woodsy flavour. Fish them out at the end, squeeze dry and save for soups or stir-fries.

Lake of Bays Pumpkin Ale LCBO 480012, 473 mL, $3.95

Notaboo E.T. 51 Premium Vodka LCBO 548362, $41.95

Drinks that go “boo!” SEASONAL SIPS If you’re deciding what to pour on Halloween, here are three options to bring spooky spirit to your glass while adding to the haunted décor.

SCRAP GOLD When making fresh tomato sauce, save the skins and seeds, and freeze in small containers. They will add flavour, colour and the gentlest hint of acidity to your stock.
