I’ve been The Food Girl in Town for two thousand, one hundred and ninety days. Here’s what happened in the 6th year. You’ll never guess how many restaurants I ate in this year… yes, I counted.
I’ve always coveted photos of long table dinners. The third instalment in the series of Well & Good Dinners focused the foods of the Newfoundland harvest, dining by candlelight.
Last night at the Taste Canada Awards Gala, Seema Jethalal, Regional Director of General Ontario at Canadian Heritage, said: “Food is at the heart of Canadian heritage.” I couldn’t agree more! In its 19th year, Taste Canada honours the best culinary writers in Canada and once […]
Growing up in Newfoundland there was a very small Jewish community, and my years in Halifax were spent eating at a pseudo-Jewish deli serving mediocre matzoh ball soup. Needless to say, I don’t know much about Jewish culinary culture. So, when I was invited to attend […]
Last night I went to a cool event hosted by the Food Bloggers of Canada at Food Starter, a business accelerator program for people who are passionate about food.

I am a Taste of Danforth virgin no more. The street festival that takes over Greektown every summer is in its 22nd year and is as big as ever — it’s actually Canada’s biggest. Sunday afternoon was the final day of the festival and didn’t seem […]
When I think of lentils, I think hippie food — like carob chips or bean sprouts. I never grew up eating lentils in Newfoundland, and they’ve always reminded me of split peas, which I truly dispise. But after eating at four great Toronto restaurants that are […]
I’ve always despised ice wine. While my experience with the syrupy libation has been limited to a few attempts at being fancy while I lived in Toronto, every glass ended in a disappointed, sugary depression. I didn’t like the overt sweet nature of Ontario ice wine, so I […]
