GSI Deluxe Bacon

Thick strips of bacon on a plate... what's better than that divine smell in the morning?

Breakfast: the most important meal of the day. In our busy lives, we rarely have time for a decent breakfast anymore, but once you wake up to the wonderful smell of Gourmet Secrets’ deluxe bacon throughout the house, you’ll never want to skip it again! Our bacon from 100% free range pork is deluxe trim, double maple and big on taste, always a treat to have around whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Bacon is usually made from pork belly cured in brine or dry salt for many hours, then smoked and sliced into thick strips that produce the streaky bacon we know and love. Bacon is often enjoyed beside eggs, potatoes and toast and is very popular as a sandwich meat, being a key ingredient in the preparation of a BLT. If you prefer something greener and healthier, cook up your bacon until crispy, chop it up into small chunks or bits, and use it as a garnish for your salad! Often very popular in dressings and sauces when rendered into tiny bits, you can make your own bacon ranch dressing by simply combining mayonnaise, white vinegar, parsley and bacon bits!¬†Bacon also features as a garnish for many of our products, whether it is wrapped around our filet mignon, chicken breasts or scallops, or stuffed into our premade baked potatoes. Why not try Gourmet Secrets’ deluxe bacon in your own dishes?

If you love bacon, don’t settle for anything less than the best. Get some of Gourmet Secrets’ Deluxe Bacon Strips today at http://www.gourmetsecrets.ca!

SQF and You: Making the Right Choices

Seafood comes from the ocean. And some kinds of seafood are only found in certain parts of the ocean. So far, this is pretty obvious: you won’t find Jumbo Black Tiger Prawns, Chilean Seabass and Digby Giant Scallops in the same place, right? But how do Canadians ensure that all of their seafood adheres to the same high standards of quality, if it is coming from so many different places in the world? The answer is SQF: Safe Quality Food, a global food safety standard that ensures all of your fish and seafood from Gourmet Secrets is of the highest quality!

Food safety? Check.Specifically, all Gourmet Secrets fish and seafood products are SQF Level 2 certified. What does that mean for you?

First, it is the most stringent standard for food safety in Canada. To be SQF Level 2 certified, all seafood and fish that are processed by our federal plant must fall within acceptable quality standards set out not only by the SQF scheme itself, but also the HACCP approach to dealing with risks and hazards. In our case, every item that contains seafood in some shape or form must have all its ingredients undergo the food safety protocol. Every incoming shipment of product to our federal plant is tested against the SQF Level 2 standards for criteria such as color, humidity, heavy metals and undesirable preservative and contaminant contents: if even one item in the shipment does not fall within these standards, it is sent back in its entirety. That’s how strict it is- and how important your health and the quality of your food is to us.

Second, it is globally recognized. The SQF Level 2 certification is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative, an international non-profit organization of food safety experts and industry leaders that sets the standard for the best food safety practices in world food industry. Our seafood’s quality is backed up by the hundreds and thousands of people who have collaborated with one another to ensure that the SQF Level 2 standard is one of the very best worldwide.

Consequently, by purchasing your seafood from Gourmet Secrets, you are guaranteed to have the best quality product, free of contaminants and preservatives, good for your health and full of wholesome ocean flavor. Why wait any longer? Order your favorite fish and seafood selections today!

What is the Gourmet Secrets Concept?

One of our Facebook fans submitted this great picture of their son watching dry ice from a Gourmet Secrets order make smoke in a glass of water.

“I don’t know if this counts, but my son gets super-excited when a new shipment comes in and we “play” with the dry ice!! Mom loves that she is feeding him natural free range chicken which is a much healthier option and pretty much the same price as most supermarket meat. our favorite meal is chicken fajitas but I have no pics b/c we eat it too fast.”
