Events going on in Toronto

Somewhat Less Than A Thousand Tastes

For the last few years, President’s Choice has hosted the 1000 Tastes food festival as part of Luminato. This event rounded up local restaurants, who in turn, offered a sampling of their culinary magic for the hungry hordes in exchange for tickets… Continue Reading →


A morning of free frozen yogurt from xococava (and Topshop), donuts from Little Nicky’s, and 1000 Tastes later this afternoon. Throw in the MMVA’s setting up, and Downtown Toronto at Queen and John is busy place to be this weekend!

Toronto Bakes For Japan – Part 2

Just as an update to my previous post, here is the haul I snagged from day 2 of Toronto Bakes For Japan, this time, at The Rivoli! Shot (and ate some of) these at David’s Tea next door to the event. Had… Continue Reading →

A Bakesale For Japan

The Toronto Bakes for Japan event, a fundraiser for the Japan Red Cross Society, takes place at several locations across Toronto this weekend. You too can hand over a donation and abscond with an awesome haul of treats.

Bribery For The Cure

I’m about 10 days away from CIBC’s Run For The Cure and I’ve done no fund-raising. So I am resorting to baked-goods and pictures of kittens in an attempt to get things going in a hurry.

There are several in a (roughly) 1km radius of City Hall, which makes it easy to pick up fresh local fruits and produce before work, during the lunch hour, or on a weekend. I’ve enjoyed ridiculously fragrant peaches, sweet cherries, and intensely flavoured wild blueberries during my numerous excursions to the various surrounding markets. I’ve also gotten duds too, so when you go, look out for those offering samples – and use your nose.

Why Winterlicious?

By now, some of you may have figured out that I love dining out and eating new, as well as familiar, foods. But Toronto’s Winterlicious and Summerlicious events are the two times of the year where I strategically plan to… Continue Reading →

Talking with Thomas Keller in Toronto

Traditionally, Monday is a slow night in the restaurant business and so becomes the defacto night off for many. For the few kitchens open, I suspect they had the bare minimum of staff present last night – as most were… Continue Reading →

Gourmet Food & Wine Expo 2009: Not-so-gourmet

While I had heard that the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo was taking place this weekend, I was highly unmotivated to go. First, there’s a $15 entry fee. Secondly, you’re forced to buy $1 tickets/vouchers that you hand over to… Continue Reading →
