Chef Matt Basile in Chefs #LoveCDNbeef
You know those times when you meet someone and there is an instant connection? Where you fall into a conversation as if you have known each other all your life? That’s how it was when I met Chef Matt Basile, or as many people know him Fidel Gastro. I’d been hearing about this Fidel Gastro guy for some time from mutual friends and the movers a [...]

Today the gates to the CNE opened and Toronto flooded into the exhibition grounds  looking for  the pitch and roll of the rides, the flashy excitement of the midway, and of course the tantalizing and  unusual delights served up at the Food Building! The Ex is a great excuse to get out and eat food you know you shouldn’t but since it’s only a [...]

Then The Eat Street Cookbook Arrived

Then The Eat Street Cookbook Arrived
Gerry just came into the office with a big padded manila envelop (I was going to say package, but I know some of you would read that wrong.) Inside was my last prize – the new Eat Street Cookbook. It’s filled with great recipes and beautiful photos. Even the trucks I visit the most – El Gastronomo Vagabundo and Caplansky [...]

Chef Adam Hynam-Smith in Chefs #LoveCDNBeef on unsweetened.ca
The first time I meet  Chef Adam Hynam-Smith, our next Chef in the Chefs #LoveCDNBeef series, he was leaning up against a food truck in the Distillery District at the first Food Truck Eats event. That may have been the last time I saw him standing still. I was there early taking photos and “helping”, so when he offered me a sample, I turned [...]

More Than I Could Eat @foodcabbie

More Than I Could Eat @foodcabbie
This $5.50 breakfast special from @FoodCabbie was more than I could eat for breakfast and I even got it without the refried beans.  (it’s the Breakfast Special on the green paper below the menu, but I think it’s almost exactly the same as the Breakfast Burrito, just with homefries) Good solid breakfast food with a little spicy kick. [...]

Lex on Street Meat

Lex on Street Meat
Yes it’s true, I’m going to be CBC 1 discussing Street Meat with Jian Ghomeshi on Sounds Like Canada Friday. I’m hoping the conversation will expand beyond just Street Meats since the hotdog cart is the strongest representative in Toronto’s Street Meats category. However there are plenty of other Street Treats to be ha [...]
