Pan-Latino: A New Season of Classes

After a much needed holiday, I’m back in business. Last week I started the 2010 Pan-Latino cooking series at IQliving and at the LCBO. Happy to report the two first classes were sold out. It’s great to see how much interest has grown in Latin cuisine, not just in Toronto, but all over Canada as […]

In the Americas and all around the world, what we all have in common, is that our great-grand parents made sure that those typical or classical dishes for Christmas were passed on throughout generations. Case in point is the Hallaca, which is made through Central and South America and has many manes like Tamal, Hayaca, […]

Standing Room Only for “Living Spanish with Sabrosito”

Rosa Maria Tortorici and I are ecstatic to report that our collaborative project was a huge success.

This way, she says, real life inspires their language learning and not […]

Dishing it up at DISH

I’ve been following pastry chef Charmaine Baan’s career for years. The first time I heard about her was through Andrew Gardner, when he was at Splendido, back in the day. Her name would crop up in the food press from time to time, and I finally met her in person at Terroir in March. She […]

A Cooking Class and/or Dinner with Friends?

I got an interesting a call from Jessica Loving the other day. Jessica is Inniskillin’s brand manager. We met last year when I put on a cooking demo that focused on ice wine. The spectrum of ice wine’s tasting notes is astounding. I don’t think people realize the breadth or diversity of ice wine’s flavour […]
