A big meal at The Black Hoof with friends.

Food is not just about sustenance, but also about taste, creativity, and social interaction. I capture my experiences in image and word so I can reminisce at my leisure – savour the aroma of anticipation, the texture of taste, and all that an excellent meal evokes.

    Hey, loved the Porchetta pics, going to try to make it out soon to taste for myself.

    I thought of your blog the other day when I went to About Cheese to use one of the vouchers off RFD’s deal of the day. They had chocolate chip cookies topped with blue cheese. They were interesting! I don’t think they were super fresh (i.e. not made that day) but worth giving a shot if you have a chocolate chip craving or do another round up on your site!

    Hahaha! Those About Cheese coupons were the best coupons ever. I should have bought more.

    Will see about trying those cookies – was there before the end of the year for goodies and didn’t see them.

    Hi there! Stumbled across your blog when googling deets about Luminato’s 1000 Tastes – and I’m so glad I did! I’m loving your pictures (and clever domain name too)!

    Hi Jen,
    Love your posts and pictures. Every time I visit I end up hungry again.
    We’re organizing a foodie event for lobster lovers. We would love to get some exposure. Would you be open to raffling off a couple of tickets to the event to your readers and followers?
    Let us know.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Jen,

    How’s it going? I’m not sure if you remember me, but my friends and I had our meal next to you at Yours Truly months ago. We sat together at the communal table and had discussions over food and talked about ecoteca sociale. Seeing that you are a foodie, I thought you might be interested in this. I’m working on a pop up dinner in Mississauga on July 16 at Bistro Narra if you are interested? I know it might be a bit of a drive for you. It will be the first of many series of dinner that I’m trying to do in different restaurants with different themes.

    Hey Jen,

    Would love to chat about taking your Map of Eats and making it available on iPhone so that people can walk around Toronto, see the places you recommend and quickly read your blog posts.

    We’ve built a free WordPress plugin and iPhone app to do this; would love to give you demo or answer any questions you’ve got.
