Charity Gift Guide 2017: SickKids, Habitat for Humanity & The Brain Project

The holidays are a wonderful time of year to celebrate family, friends, and all the good things in our lives, and they're also the perfect time to give back. We started our annual charity gift guides so we could try to inspire a range of ideas to give back, and offer a window into some of the opportunities available to give to the community. This year we're focusing our attention on three very important initiatives: SickKids, Habitat for Humanity, and The Brain Project.
The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old

Sampling The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old Scotch

Sampling a fantastic Scotch is an experience that requires nothing more than a few moments to relax and let the flavours play across your palate. All you need is a good whisky, and the time to enjoy it, but having the right location, good company, and great food can make a whisky moment truly a soulful experience that goes a step beyond. Commemorating the launch of The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old, which is now available in Canada, I was fortunate to enjoy a memorable whisky moment recently with the company of The Macallan's emeritus ambassador, Marc Laverdiere, and an excellent mix of cheeses, chocolates, and food pairings.
Caramel Syrup

Recipe: Caramel syrup for coffee and cocktails

My love of espresso knows no bounds, from a straight espresso with sugar all the way to trying interesting new recipes. For the last year, I've been fortunate to have the Breville Barista Express Espresso machine to make my espresso and espresso-based drinks, so I can make a caramel macchiato pretty quickly at this point, but I honestly am not a big fan of buying caramel sauce because--surprise--it's really easy to make.
