BOXED Toronto


Last month, Chef Matthew Sullivan, the man behind the BOXED Toronto, finally announced the next installment of his pop-up dinner. It’s been awhile since the last one so I’m sure people had been anxiously waiting for this just as much as I was. A week or two after tickets started selling, the menu theme was announced:


Magnum Gold?!

Growing up, summer meant playing outside, swimming, and cold treats; the ultimate treat being either chocolate mint ice cream or that purple, green and magenta rocket popsicle. Such simple pleasures! Now there are so many more options when it comes to cooling down in the summer. Here's the latest, rather luxurious option: Magnum Gold?!


L’Ouvrier Chef Appreciation night: Nick auf der Mauer


Most of you will know Nick auf der Mauer from a little shop he runs with his wife Vicky that serves one of the city’s best sandwiches. It’s called Porchetta & Co. Ya heard of it? Well it’s a good place to be whenever you’re hungry, and even more so when they’ve got specials coming out of their kitchen such as their Breakfast Sandwich and Soft Shell Crab. A few doors down there’s L’Ouvrier, a restaurant and bar that recently began having a “Guest Pass Chef.” Last Monday, for their third one, it was Nick’s turn.


AGO: Florence at FRANK

A little over a week ago, a small group food / lifestyle bloggers met up just inside the AGO (@agotoronto) to tour the Revealing the Early Renaissance: Stories and Secrets in Florentine Art exhibit. There was to be a really neat exhibit-inspired tasting menu afterwards at FRANK as well. Not bad for the middle of the week! It was one of the most enjoyable art gallery exhibits I’ve ever had.
