Spice Up the Holidays

Spice Kitchen Incubator is a project of the International Rescue Committee (IRC), in partnership with Salt Lake County. It is a business "incubator" that brings together refugees and other dis­advantaged community members interested in starting a full or part-time food business. The Spice Kitchen Incubator offers a 4,000 square-foot commercial-grade kitchen which can be rented by the hour to entrepreneurs, 24 hours a day. Habanero Pepper Sauce or peanut-and-habanero Khan Khan Khan Paste from African Spice, a Spice Kitchen Incubator entrepreneur from Sierra Leone, would make great holiday gifts—as would Jamaica's Kitchen's Mango Pineapple Salsa or Spicy Jerk Sauce. Spice Kitchen Incubator also provides catering services featuring many flavorful cuisines. Visit SpiceKitchenIncubator.org for more information.

Holiday Wine Social

On Wednesday, Dec. 9, Meditrina Small Plates & Wine Bar (1394 S. West Temple, MeditrinaSLC.com) will host its annual Meditrina Holiday Wine Social. Back by popular demand, the social will take place from 6:30-8 p.m., and will include four holiday-themed wines and four "light and whimsical holiday-themed food pairings," says owner Jen Gilroy. The wine social costs $25 for food and $25 for the optional wine pairings (adults only). Call 801-485-2055 to RSVP. Meditrina is also available for private holiday parties and catering.

Bambara's Bacon to Beat AIDS

Throughout the end of November, Bambara restaurant (202 S. Main, 801-363-5454) at the Hotel Monaco is hosting a tasty fundraiser for the Utah AIDS Foundation. Bambara will donate $1 to the AIDS Foundation for every dish ordered that contains bacon. Bambara general manager Nicole Willis said via a press release, "We are serving some truly 'guilt-free' bacon at Bambara all month. Utah AIDS Foundation does such important, life-saving work here, and we're proud to support and recognize their efforts." Bambara-SLC.com

Quote of the week: If you record the sound of bacon in a frying pan and play it back, it sounds like the pops and cracks on an old 33 1/3 recording.
