It’s the end of the year, the end of the year, 2012 has ended!!! (think of the Wong Fu Weekend theme song). As always, I’ve got food on the mind so here’s a final post before the new year! From this hole-in-the-wall, you’ll find some amazing and authentic Thai dishes! Sukhothai…

Lazy Sundays #3: Lime Meringues


LAZY SUNDAYS #3. Tonight is a special night. I’ve finally set time aside to bake. To me, it’s the ultimate stress-reliever. I’m not sure if I’ll be taking photos tonight, so for now, here are the lime meringues I baked a couple months ago!

Canoe wild collaboration w/ Société-Orignal

11.24.12  
Last month, I headed to Canoe for the first time! :D I cannot tell you how excited I was. That evening, Canoe was having a special one-night collaboration dinner with Société-Orignal so that really put things over the top. I was really on the fence about writing this post because the lens I brought with me doesn’t take photos well in low light but I still wanted you to see what kind of dishes they came up with! So please bear with me photo-wise.

Lazy Sundays #2: Cranberry & Oatmeal Cookies


It’s that time of the year again. As a paddler, I’d like to call it “bulking season” before our muscular endurance phase. But in truth, it’s simply the HOLIDAYS! :D If we were bears, we’d be packing on some serious pounds in preparation for hibernation. So here is one of my favourite cookies to get you started! (recipe here).

 At the corner of Baldwin and McCaul there’s a new place to chow down at (make that two). What was initially slated to be another location of the wild wing franchise has been transformed into TWO restaurants in just 30 days. On Monday night, a bunch of us were invited down to Yakitori Bar for their media launch party.

Group of 7 Chefs ft. Matt Jennings: Dairy Dinner

11.05.12 
           
The Group of 7 Chefs (@GroupOf7Chefs) is just that, 7 chefs (the chefs at events changes depending on availability) who combine their talents, love of sustainable, local, Canadian ingredients to bring us meals worth remembering. Their tastings are skillfully crafted and recently, in September they even cooked at the notable James Beard House. Next event: Hunter’s Feast ft. Jamie Bissonnette Dec 10th (yes, that’s next week!!).

Lazy Sundays #1: The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair


11.05.12

The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair is an annual event held at the CNE grounds. This was their 90th year so there were even more special events than usual. Regular events include: a horse show, produce contests, poultry/cattle/sheep contests, the Weston Canadian Open (where you can watch professional riders perform jumps), and butter sculptures. Also, did I mention rabbit jumping?! It’s fun for the entire family and you get to appreciate Canada’s farmers and breeders’ hardwork! :D
