But it’s a good example of the

Just one

One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow

Say these words after me: salted, licorice, caramel. Say them long and slow, as if you were using them to seduce a lover. And that’s exactly what it’s like to eat a candy of the same name. The devilish chef at the Maroon Pig in Georgetown makes them. Devilish? You want to say no—you must! But a silky voice whispers in your ear. Just one! Close your eyes and take small,

How I learned to cook: Robert Pendergast

Robert Pendergast is a caterer, a chef and an oyster shucker extraordinaire.

“After high school, I went to university in Montreal. I didn’t much like school, as it turned out. I dropped all of my courses but one.

#TryThisAndrew
by Andrew Sprague

Some folks like to say that one of the most appealing aspects of living in a northern climate is the change in seasons. I’ve probably said it myself, maybe as recently as yesterday. And when people say it, most imagine the majesty of the fall, the beautiful change in colours, the relief from the summer’s heat, and sweaters. Some

by Ann Thurlow

If a person is curious about food and encouraging by nature, that person (being me in this case) might go to check out a restaurant (The Spicey Chef in this case) to see what it’s like and help it along. This is where the person gets a surprise or two. Number one: though only open two weeks, the place is packed. Number two: the menu
