Been in Calgary about three months now, have discovered many of the food products we typically use, however still looking for some, such as:

1. Fresh fava beans. Do they make an appearance at any time of the tear?

2. Fresh garlic, not from China. Ivory coloured skins with purple streaks. The Chinese garlic just isn't that fresh, though it is inexpensive.

3. Veal: Not so much looking as I have found it at Co-op, in very limited cuts and quantities, but wondering why there is not a significant source. I'd have thought the past BSE issues would have caused some growth in the local veal industry.

4. Dehulled soybeans. Gotta try and make some tempeh.

Thanks!
