The search for the original poutine in Quebec

The search for the original poutine in Quebec

Poutine has become a quintessential Canadian dish. Chefs are spooning out messy iterations of this gravy-curd-fry combination everywhere, and I love it all. I’ve eaten poutine in many forms and many places — like sitting curb-side after a night of drinking in Halifax or with […]

Dinner at FORK | Witless Bay

Dinner at FORK | Witless Bay

FORK., a pop-up operating out of Irish Loop Coffee House, has been open for a month now, an I’m still thinking about the food I ate. I wrote an article for The Overcast about FORK. focusing on the “who, what, where, when, why” but I […]

Where to Eat, Sleep and Drink Wine in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Where to Eat, Sleep and Drink Wine in Niagara-on-the-Lake

It’s become tradition to visit a wine region on my birthday. Last year we visited Prince Edward County for the big 3-0, and this year we didn’t have to travel far to visit one of the best wine regions in Canada — Niagara. We stayed in […]

My Favourite Toronto Restaurants

My Favourite Toronto Restaurants

Round two in Toronto is coming to an end for Adam and I, but I feel like there’s a lot more to eat. After two years in this city, I’ve eaten out many times. Many times. The checklist on my iPhone is still growing and eating at […]

Dinner at Alo | Toronto

Dinner at Alo | Toronto

I’ve been waiting to write this post for two years. We moved back to Toronto 2014, around the time Alo revealed its view overlooking the bustling Queen and Spadina intersection, and I’ve been drooling over glowing reviews ever since. I spent two years waiting to have […]

Afternoon Tea at the Shangri-La | Toronto

Afternoon Tea at the Shangri-La | Toronto

Afternoon Tea has so much going for it. Where else do you get to indulge in copious amounts of tea, sweets, scones and Prosecco for hours on end? And who doesn’t love miniature sandwiches? No one, that’s who. The first afternoon tea was held by Anna, the […]

Eating for 72 Hours in Chicago (in the winter)

Eating for 72 Hours in Chicago (in the winter)

For our first trip to Chicago, my list of ‘must-eat’ restaurants was a mile long. From cheeseburgers at Au Cheval to cocktails at Longman & Eagle, I had a hundred recommendations. How was I going to choose what to eat in only 72 hours in Chicago? Trying […]

Osteria Tripperia Il Magazzino | Florence

Osteria Tripperia Il Magazzino | Florence

I research restaurants a lot. When I’m travelling I make restaurant reservations before I plan accommodations. I pride myself in having “good restaurant karma,”managing to find a great spot to eat wherever I go. I was so excited to eat in Florence, after Rome’s wealth […]

Souk Tabule for Brunch, Lunch and Dinner | Toronto

Souk Tabule for Brunch, Lunch and Dinner | Toronto

I’m so freaking happy the first restaurant in the “up-and-coming” Canary District is finally open. Souk Tabule — the little sister of Toronto’s Middle Eastern restaurant mogul Tabule — is a fast-casual spot I fell in love with in a hurry. If you read my […]

Brunch at Hollandaise Diner | Toronto

Brunch at Hollandaise Diner | Toronto

On the weekend Adam and I eloped, we decided to do all the things we always talk about doing in Toronto and never do. Venturing east on the Danforth to visit a restaurant that specializes in my favourite breakfast food was one thing we just […]

Lunch at Tratorria del Tribunale | Parma

Lunch at Tratorria del Tribunale | Parma

I take trips to eat. I wrote an article for Eat Drink Travel about the myriad products from Parma, and it’s always got me thinking about why I went there in the first place. To pig out on parmesan and prosciutto. Travelling to eat is burgeoning in popularity because […]

Earlier this week a few co-workers and I wandered down Yonge Street to check out the latest restaurant opening near work. Lbs., which stands for lobster, burger, salad, and is pronounced ‘pounds’ is a new concept restaurant that opened up at the end of June. The […]
