  • The House of Canada Dinner - In Honour of Autumn's Arrival

    On November 14th, 2014 we celebrated our first THOC dinner event at the Cafe Florianihof in the 8th district here in Vienna. And what a night! Great food, performances, drinks, people and decoration. 

    At The House of Canada, we recognise that there is something about a table shared by friends that anchors our relationships and energises us. The House of Canada is a growing community with an interest in advocating a culture of friendship and uncomplicated life through such gatherings.

    We welcomed guests to a unique table experience to enjoy a lively and classy, yet laid back night with extraordinary, hand-made organic food. They enjoyed a delicious three-course meal especially curated for the evening, along with wine, Canadian beer, a cozy atmosphere and socialising, all in one space.

    The sound of autumn winds came with a special performance adapted for us by Konea Ra (http://koneara.com/), and the warm words of Alexandra von Quadt transported us to faraway worlds during our meal.

    At the end of the night all guests received a special souvenir to remember the evening. Be sure to join us next at our next event!

  • THOC Limited Edition Paddle - Camo

    “What sets a canoeing expedition apart is that it purifies you more rapidly and inescapably than any other.”

    Pierre Elliot Trudeau*, Patriot, Paddler, Prime Minister of Canada for 15 years

    The canoe is an iconic Canadian symbol. What could be more peaceful than being on the water and enjoying nature? Aboriginal people in Canada depended on the canoe for every facet of their life and European settlers quickly discovered the elegance of this type of boat. In Canada, the birch bark canoe was most typically used because the wood was light, smooth, sturdy and waterproof. As well, birch trees were growing almost everywhere.
    Today, canoes are made of molded plastic or fiberglass. They are lightweight and durable and paddles can be much lighter than the traditional wooden ones of the past. THOC has a limited edition paddle for sale - this one’s for the water but also for you to enjoy as art in your home.

  • Granola Recipe made with Maple Syrup

    October is a great time of year to get out and enjoy nature. If you’re going on a hike, think about packing some of this granola that you can make with THOC’s Drip Maple syrup. Delicious and nutritious!

    180 g whole rolled oats
    65 g pre-rinsed, dry, uncooked quinoa
    50 g raw walnuts, in pieces or coarsely chopped
    50 g raw almonds, coarsely chopped
    50 g cup raw sunflower seeds
    35 g unsweetened coconut flakes (raw)
    35 g white raisins
    30 g dried cranberries
    30 g flax seeds
    80 ml coconut oil
    80 ml Drip maple syrup - your choice of flavour
    1 dash cinnamon
    1 dash nutmeg

    1) Preheat your oven to 100 degrees Celsius.
    2) Mix all dry ingredients (except the cinnamon and nutmeg) together in a big mixing bowl.
    3) If your coconut oil is solid, put it in a small pot and melt it over low heat. Add the cinnamon and nutmeg and stir, then pour it over the dry ingredients and mix well.
    4) Spread the granola onto a large cookie sheet (you may need two) lined with parchment paper. Flatten it out with your hands so it makes a layer of granola, approximately 3 cm thick.
    5) Bake in the oven for 60 minutes or until it looks golden.
    6) Let the granola cool completely. Lift the ends of the parchment paper to crumble the granola into the desired size and store in the fridge if not eating right away in an airtight container.
    7) Enjoy!
