It’s always a good time for a burger, isn’t it? Maybe it’s the summer that stirs the burger cravings deep within, or maybe its just part of evolution, baby. Whatever the case, recently I had two remarkable experiences at supposed burger emporiums, at opposite ends of the pleasure spectrum, and in a most [...]
It’s always a good time for a burger, isn’t it? Maybe it’s summer BBQs that spark the cravings, or maybe its because they are the ultimate sandwich. Whatever the case, recently I had two remarkable experiences at supposed burger emporiums, at opposite ends of the pleasure spectrum, with most unexpected results. It [...]
It was my first visit to Towne Hall and I had no idea what to expect. On the edge of a strip mall of sorts, the last thing I expected to find was design I would incorporate into my own home and beautiful artistic cooking and plating. But the place is about beauty. [...]
Yes, a freshly cut pineapple can be a special treat, but it’s hit and miss. When perfectly ripe the fleshy bits at the tips of a wedge might be nice, but they don’t go very far AND leave threads between the teeth almost every time, leave juice down your chin and lets not omit [...]
When it comes to food there are times I like to go with what I know. Take yogurt. Call me old fashioned, but it belongs in a little cup. Back in the day, I was faithful to Light N Lively (no longer available in Canada). Nowadays, I go for Source, because of [...]

These indisputable facts are my pleasure to share with you, so don’t bother writing comments thanking me or, perish the thought, disagreeing.

1. Bagels [...]
I’m a bit of a slave to expiration dates. With a terrible sense of smell and taste, I can’t rely on normal, human warning systems to tell me whether something is edible or not. I remember once, I sprinkled on my pasta some grated parmesan that had gone off, suffering some mild digestive [...]
The Gibeau Orange Julep is a building modeled to resemble a building sized orange, and it does. It is as much a Montreal landmark as anything I can think of…maybe more, just for its sheer recognize-ability. If you were drugged and put on an airplane and woke up when the plane was [...]
It’s not much of a surprise to anyone who knows me that I like to get drunk. I usually get a good drunk in once a week. Nothing crazy by the standards of today’s 18-year-olds or of the Bukowski’s of the world, but I like to throw one into my weekly regime. Lets just say [...]
I’m an adult. I do adult things. I go to work. I’m allowed to vote. I’m of legal age to drink. I’ve lost my virginity.
And I still eat peanut butter and jam sandwiches. Often.
It wasn’t all that long ago that I was talking with a friend of mine about comfort food. You know, when you’re [...]
