This is my on-repeat-all-the-time summer salad.  It hits all the right notes: it’s light, fresh, crispy and tangy, and so satisfying.   When I was in university, there was this restaurant halfway between my house and school called Dr. Deli and the Salad Queen, and aside from slinging traditional deli sandwiches, they had an extensive …

It’s May…the middle of May to be exact, and it’s cold outside. Like October or early November cold. It seems Mother Nature is a bit confused these days. We’re done with winter. We’re done with fall. We’re done with rain and cold and wind and grey skies. But yet that has been our weather forecast …

If you celebrate any Jewish holidays, or even Shabbat dinner, it’s pretty much a given that you are familiar with the ubiquitous beef brisket that your mom learned to make from her mom (who learned to make it from her mom…) After all, it’s pretty much required eating at the Seder table…and for days afterwards. …

When I was a (really little) kid, there was this restaurant my Dad used to take me to downtown (on McCaul Street in the Village by the Grange, for those who know the area).  It was called Ginsburg and Wong, and it was my first introduction to ‘fusion’ food. Well, not so much fusion in …

I’m going to start this post by saying no – I’m not producing these again.  It was fun while it lasted, but I no longer produce food in mass quantities for sale. That being said, a good friend of mine is slowly testing out plant-based food options and asked me if there way any way …
