It feels like someone flipped the switch from spring to INSTANT SUMMER. It’s so hot in Toronto that I just want to be lying in front of a fan (or a beach, maybe?) all day long.
If you’re looking to cool off like I am, then this post is for you. David’s Tea has a bunch of new iced teas to keep you cool all summer long. The Boardwalk Collection ($28) features 5 sweet teas for summer. (more…)
By now, you’re probably already anxiously awaiting Taste of Toronto that will happen in a couple of weeks! Each day brings more tantalizing news of the festival.
Pop-up restaurants include one-night-only service from Alo on Thursday with a Hamachi ceviche and crispy pork belly with sherry vinegar and cilantro; while Antler Kitchen & Bar is on Friday dishing delicious game in the form of duck yakatori with a sweet soy glaze and a spice ash-crusted venison chop. Saturday brings Taiwanese tapas joint Kanpai Snack Bar for a global taste of Taiwanese fried chicken and bao sandwich with slow-cooked five-spice pork or Formosa ceviche. Last but not least, The County General, offering up a smoke chocolate truffle, pickled carrot slaw with smoked white fish and its famed County fried chicken. YUM.
Take a peek at what each booth will be dishing up here.
I’m giving away 1 pair of tickets to one lucky winner! The tickets will be valid for 1 day of admission any day during the festival. Wanna enter? See below!

It’s almost Ontario Cider Week! From May 27th to June 4th, this week is devoted to celebrating local cider. This is my favourite week, because cider is my preferred drink of choice. Cider is rapidly becoming more popular in Toronto, which is awesome to see.
I’m really excited to share this event with you! The Craft Cider Cruise brings together 12 cider companies and 1 brewery for an evening cruise along Lake Ontario on June 5th, at 7pm. This 3 hour boat ride is $40 and includes a commemorative mug along with four sample tokens that can be used at one of the participating cider companies for a 4oz sample of your choice. There will also be some tasty bites to buy on board.
