I did this first at Canoe but it’s appeared all over the place at our restaurants. It’s a family recipe from my mom’s side. And yes, it’s canned creamed corn… I don’t know why but it just works. It’s best on the griddle.
She fed you, cooked for you and inspired your love of food. Of course, you’re going to make her a great meal. Why not add one of these fun gifts to ensure favourite child status.
Bear Ice Shaver
Stylish snow cones from a friendly bear (a pop culture fave in Japan since 1976) hiding an internal industrial-strength grinder. Fill the inner cup with water or fruit juice and freeze or use ice cubes. Bonus: Mr. Bear’s eyes move as you grind the ice.

If your Mom’s been craving a second oven – here it is. Mom will have fun with this little oven that could. Select a cooking program and this smart appliance delivers the right power at the appropriate time to each of its five elements. Tenderize and develop complex flavours with the even convection heating from above and below. Use the Slow Cook setting from 4 to 10 hours and then Keep Warm automatically turns on when cooking is done.
Decadent Potato Chips
For the Mom who has everything. A big thank-you to Spain’s Torres for these brilliant chips. Open a bag of Trufa Negra premium potato chips, and the irresistible scent of black summer truffle emerges. That, plus the crisp, non-greasy texture, crunch and delicate dusting of sea salt = potato chip nirvana. Spoil her a little more by showing up with a bag of their Caviar chips and a good bottle of Prosecco.
