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

  • Jean Talon Market & Vicinity 2017 May 22, 2017
    There's a stand this year that is making nougat on location, it was phenomenal. Ranks up there with the nougat I've had in the Mediterranean. He's from France and he told me his family has been in the nougat business for 80 years. He will cut whatever amount you want and it's priced at $45/kg. […]

  • Seeking advice for Montreal & Quebec City "food destination vacation" May 22, 2017
    At Pied de Cochon, you can have poutine with foie gras! I like Marché Jean-Talon better than Atwater because they have a better selection of seafood. One stall, Les Délices de la Mer/Atkins et Frères if I remember correctly, sells cooked whelks; get them before the restaurants start carrying them on the menu and driving […]

  • Cocktail Bars In Montreal? May 19, 2017

Here are a few of our favorite bars that make great cocktails: Atwater Cocktail Club, Mayfair (1st pic), Le Mal Necessaire (2nd pic) Otherwise the following restaurants also push […]
  • Montreal vs Toronto May 15, 2017
    Well, I have to admit I would certainly put some of the smoked meat sandwiches I have in Montreal as better than any I've had in Toronto. I still think Schwartz's are delicious. (Though I also have to admit not having tried many of the smoke meat sandwich offerings in Toronto for many years, so […]

  • Le Filet or Liverpool House? Accidentally double-booked! May 12, 2017
    Whatever place you choose, please, please, pretty please call the other place to cancel your reservation !!! I would suggest Le Filet (first because it is good, and it is fish oriented, and it is close to home :-) ).
