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

  • Food Events 2017 March 24, 2017
    Late notice, but they don't seem to be advertising much. Uniburger (Ontario St. location) has been doing it's annual anniversary celebration this week. A different chef each day creates a special burger and a portion of the price is donated to a charity of their choice. I happened on it on Wednesday and was rewarded […]
  • Schwartz's Smoked Meat now packaged and selling in grocery store! March 22, 2017

  • Mont Tremblant - mid-range dining March 14, 2017
    Hi there! we're heading to Tremblant soon and I'm looking for suggestions (both in the village and in St-Jovite). The most comprehensive thread on this topic dates back to 2009 and I'm sure there have been changes. We will have a kitchenette and will be cooking some meals but I'm looking for mid-range recommendations for […]
  • What's in a Quebec sugar shack dinner? March 14, 2017
    That text seems pretty much on par with my version of things. Except that traditional pet de sœurs don't use maple syrup, just like traditional pouding chômeur doesn't use maple syrup. They were modest urban foods and, even then, maple syrup was an expensive rural ingredient.
