Well, clearly it’s been a while since my last post.  I could come up with a  laundry list of reasons why it’s been 4 months since my last review, but none of them excuse the fact that I’ve let you down. And for that I owe you all an apology. I’m sorry. That being said, I’ve been incredibly humbled and inspired by much of the positive...

Here’s a great look from the folks at Food Network Canada at how chocolate chip cookies are produced in the factory. I’d love to have the taste tester’s job!

On the corner of King & Tecumseth, a block west of Bathurst, sits an incredibly charming and friendly bakery/cafe.  Wagamama Pasteries & Cafe  is a family owned and operated cafe that has become a favourite of locals and a staple in the neighbourhood. Wagamama has been  run by the husband & wife duo of John and Miwa since 2000, so it goes without saying...
