12 Dec, 2015  |  by Ama Scriver

Just last week, I shared with you that President’s Choice had released their brand new PC® Insiders Collection™ with over 70 new items for the holiday season.  They had challenged me to take part in their #PCDishOut campaign where I had to make and create dishes with some of the items from the line. Now because I was feeling so inspired, not only did I create one recipe but I created two recipes! These recipes fall into the Brunch and Dinner categories from the new PC®…

Vegan Home Cookin’ with Gillian: Breakfast Pockets

6 Jun, 2015  |  by Gillian Kreft

Working full-time, I’m always skipping the most important meal of the day, breakfast. One weekend we made a little too much tofu scramble and I decided to try my hand at making something like a breakfast hot pocket. I tried a few different doughs before I landed on the one below, it’s soft but still gets a little crunchy and it holds up great to the stuff inside. This is totally customizable, I used the tofu scram recipe from my…

Brunch in the City with Canola Eat Well at the Windsor Arms Hotel

6 Jun, 2015  |  by Ama Scriver

I don’t think we have to remind you about how much we love brunch here at FGFS. So when Abbey from Abbey’s Kitchen sent me an e-mail inviting me to a brunch at the Windsor Arms Hotel she was hosting in conjunction with celebrity chef/host Christine Tizzard and Canola Eat Well, you know that my RSVP was an obvious YES. Arriving at the Windsor Arms Hotel, I was greeting with a cold personal sized bottle of Fresita, a nice kick-off…

Vegan Home Cooking with Gillian: Tofu Scramble

6 Jun, 2015  |  by Gillian Kreft

Breakfast and brunch foods are definitely my favorite things to eat. Pre-vegan, breakfast usually included eggs, potatoes, and some sort of protein. After I went vegan I was confused as to what I could eat for breakfast that wasn’t just oatmeal & fruit. That’s when my partner introduced me to tofu scramble – and my whole world changed. We play around with the recipe often but this one is a basic tofu scramble that we find ourselves using all the…

Brunch Buffet at Montecito

4 Apr, 2015  |  by Alex Giamos

Out of all the meals of the day, brunch would have to be my favourite. If you aren’t familiar with the term, it’s a wonderful culmination of breakfast and lunch, which allows you to put two totally separate “meals” on your plate­­. For example; pancakes, and kale salad, followed by creamy mac n’ cheese (I’m not joking.) Doesn’t that sound like a match made in heaven? Brunch is the MVP when it comes to the meal line up, which is why…

Indulgence at its finest: Citta

Citta Brunch

Whatever your stance is on brunch, you must know that I love it and I’m always hunting for the best of the best. Sometimes you got to have those “treat yo self” moments and dig into a brunch that will leave you wanting more. Recently, INK Entertainment opened up their newest restaurant called Città located right down in Hunter’s Landing of CityPlace. While there never seems to be much around here (shout-outs to the Dairy Queen close-by), INK opening up…

Brunch at Linda Modern Thai

Smoked Salmon Meal

Brunch has been getting a bad rap lately. Just recently, an article was published in The New York Times stating that “Brunch Is For Jerks” and Toronto’s own Shawn Micallef wrote a book entitled The Trouble With Brunch. It’s clear that the magical window between breakfast and lunch has, well, lost its magic. It’s hard to be brunch right now. Okay, yes, your regular order eggs, bacon and toast is indeed very boring, but brunch is still alive and well…

2nd Annual Toronto Bourbon Week Kicks off Tomorrow

11 Nov, 2014  |  by Yuli Scheidt

Bourbon is still in. Like, way in. Things come in and out of style, but bourbon upswing in popularity has lasted long enough to see the 2nd annual Toronto (and now Ottawa) Bourbon Week. Right now bourbon is on everyone’s lips. Not to be outdone by the other boozy weeks Bourbon Week aims to offer something for new comers and old pros. Each evening between November 14 and 20th will offer a different experience. From the festival opener, again at Indie…

Where you go to eat brunch can be seen as a status symbol. Yes, brunch is a pretty big deal to Toronto peeps. Thanks to Oliver and Bonacini Events, weekend brunches can be kicked off properly with Malaparte Sundays. This new brunch experience is on the rooftop patio of the TIFF…

Toronto’s Secret Patios: Milagro Catina Mexicana

7 Jul, 2014  |  by Ama Scriver

If there are two things I take pretty seriously in life, its brunch and a good patio hang. So colour me surprised me when I came across Milagro Cantina (various locations) on Queen West which had a rooftop patio.

From the outside, this Mexican restaurant seems rather unassuming. You know, your typical colorful accents and friendly vibes. But no indication that a glorious rooftop patio awaits you. Tucked away in the back of the Milagro Cantina space, the small and charming…
