Fat Sick and Nearly Dead | a Joe Cross Film

I bought a juicer a few years ago. I like juicing beets and carrots, to say the least… $10 and I just started using it regularly –  and a few days later, found this movie. Needless to say, one juice

What eating habits can tell you about work habits

I’ve long been assessing strength and weakness at the table… even so far as to discuss the awareness and reasoning of an observed consumption pattern. Not always a good conversation, but always a “real” one… What eating habits can tell

  • Find good quality beef consommé ? December 8, 2017
    Where can I find a good quality beef consommé ? near Jean Talon Market or plateau/mile-end ? I could start from scratch (bones, tomato paste ... ), but if I fail, I'd like a backup plan.
  • Best Ramen in Montreal December 8, 2017
    I not a ramen expert by any means but I tried the tonkotsu at Tsukuyomi (new spot on st-laurent, just above Fairmount) today and loved it. I am curious to hear what the ramen aficionados think. I found the broth rich and delicious, the pork belly succulent and plentiful. Loved the sweet soy egg. It […]
  • Crema di Pistacchio December 3, 2017
    Crema di Pistacchio is back in the news at Sorella boutique gourmet in Kirkland. Have you seen this product closer to downtown Montreal? If so, where? Thank you.
  • Argentinian pink shrimp at good price November 29, 2017
    Once again Provigo has the 26/30 red shrimp at 5,99$, starting tomorrow (Thursday, Nov 30th). I don't get the Maxi flyer so I don't know whether Maxi has them as well. Provigo does quite a few recurrent loss-leaders (otherwise, I find them expensive). They also have 690g Saputo Mozzarrellissima pizza mozzarella at 4,99.
  • Openings and closings, October, November, December 2017 November 29, 2017
    There's a christian maronite coastal city in Lebanon called Jounieh or Juniya. Since it's a Lebanese restaurant maybe that's their twist on the name. I like Juniya since it's less confusing with journey

Last is optional. We are more interested in a setting […]
  • Where to find SweeTango Apples in Montreal? November 26, 2017
    I finally saw SweeTangos at my Provigo, but they looked a bit worse for wear. I think they were on sale for $3.49 and honeycrisps were $3.99. I went with Ambrosias for $1.99, which are actually pretty good too.
  • Are there any good Doughnuts left in Montreal? November 20, 2017
    I'm a stickler though, :-) They aren't terrible, I'm just being overly critical. Try them and compare, I think they are just inconsistent, too much vanilla extract one time, too greasy the next but I had some this past summer at the DDO location and I enjoyed them.
