It’s time to celebrate the tough, grueling work of athletes around the world as they prepare to compete in Rio this summer. Bring the spirit of the games to your kitchen with these ring-shaped recipes, from crispy onion rings to fresh pineapple cake.
Cheese Tortellini in Light Broth
A bright, winning dish fit for an Olympian. Plump rings of cheese-filled tortellini are simmered in golden chicken broth and served alongside crispy, home-baked Parmesan chips.
Sweet, dense and cooked in wood fired ovens, it is no wonder many people crave the doughy goodness that is Montreal-style bagels. The yeasty bagels are dipped in boiling water sweetened with honey or malt before fired to perfection.
Classic Pineapple Upside Down Cake
Add a splash of colour and flavour to your dessert menu with this delectably sweet, retro upside-down cake made with juicy pineapple.
A savoury breakfast you can take on the go, these bagel-like pastries are topped with soft, sweet caramelized onions.
Mini Pineapple Cakes
Make sweet and simple upside down cakes in mini Bundt pans for an adorable dinner party dessert. If fresh pineapple isn’t in season, try a can of crushed pineapple and reserve the juice.
Giant Maple Doughnut Cake
A fun and colourful dessert the whole family will love, this giant party-worthy doughnut is festive, sweet and mixes vanilla cake and Canadian maple syrup.
Sartu di Riso
Baked in a Bundt pan, this breadcrumb crust-like cake is filled with Arborio rice, sweet Italian sausage, ground turkey or beef, cheese and tomatoes.
Grilled Salmon and Pineapple with Avocado Dressing
This dish screams summer, but there’s no reason you can’t enjoy salmon all year round! Plus, you won’t be able to resist the creamy, garlicky avocado dressing to use on top of the perfectly grilled fish.
Deep Fried Calamari
Fresh squid is sliced into thin rings and fried quickly into the ultimate tender and crunchy summertime snack. Don’t forget a squeeze of lemon!
Beer-Battered Onion Rings
Crunchy, savoury and full of fresh onion flavour, these deep-fried golden rings are the ultimate snack.
Not only are these delightful rings of pillowy pasta filled with cheese, they’re smothered in creamy, Parmesan sauce, and served with fresh peas, asparagus, cauliflower and diced ham.
Apple Linzers Cookies
These linzer cookies use sweet and fragrant apple butter in the centre instead of traditional jam.
