My favorite time of year is clearly here. Yes, it’s barbecue season, and this year I’ve been convinced that wine–and specifically Carnivor Cabernet–may not be a bad way to go in place of some of the more traditional summer patio drinks.
The season finale of Doctor Who, starring Peter Capaldi as The Doctor and Jenna Coleman as Clara Oswald, is just days away, and that made me realize I never shared something spectacular from earlier this year: my Doctor Who-themed birthday cookies.
Canadian Club knows how to host a whisky event, and of course, that shouldn’t surprise anyone. They have an award-winning brand centre in Walkerville, and they have been hosting events like this for a while, but after a tasting for their new Chairman’s Select 100% Rye earlier this month, I thought it was worth mentioning.
World Food Day (WFD)–October 16–was founded by the United Nations’ (UN) in 1945 to increase awareness of world hunger and poverty and to inspire solutions for change. Approximately 805 million people in the world, or 1 in 9 people, suffer from hunger every year, and hunger and malnutrition are linked to one third of all child deaths around the world. Five children die every minute because they are not eating enough healthy food.
Looking to do something a little different this October for Thanksgiving? Canadians can put the turkey behind them this year and take advantage of a deal from the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino, which is showing a little love for Canucks with discounts and special offerings throughout the month, which they’re dubbing Canadian Appreciation Month.
The Canadian National Exhibition is all about food trucks this weekend, as some of the city’s best mobile purveyors or great eats come together in one place from August 22 to 24, just beyond the Princes’ Gates on the Exhibition grounds.
My last travel piece about Sorrento was filled with details about why I loved this beautiful town along the coast of Italy. There was one other reason why I loved the town though, and it all came down to a magical vending machine that made pizzas.
There are lots of ways to see the city and have a great night out on the town. Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of what Toronto has to offer in terms of food and entertainment. Very few of those adventures compare to the night I enjoyed a few weeks ago though when Courvoisier took me and my wife out with a group of bloggers to enjoy an “Unforgettable Experience”.
Only at a fair can you get that special kind of food that can be considered both weird, wonderful, and utterly bad for you. The idea of healthy fair food actually seems like a crazy idea, and that’s why a show like Midway Munchies exists–to show off some of the weird and sometimes delicious creations being sold at fair ground across the United States.
The 135th Canadian National Exhibition kicked off today in Toronto, boasting some inventive (and decidedly delicious, but unhealthy) food, new rides, and a range of performers for everyone. This year’s CNE also welcomes a brand new add-on attraction with the launch of the new CNE Zipline that will whisk riders 1,100 feet over the midway for $30 a ride.
