Best of Toronto Vegan Food & Drink Festival

8 Aug, 2015  |  by Megan Stulberg

words by Megan Stulberg  |  photos by Tyler Teal You know that line in the movie The Devil Wears Prada where Meryl Streep’s all “Florals? For spring? Ground breaking.” That sums up how I feel, for the most part, about the meat-heavy menus at the street festivals that take over Toronto’s busiest streets during the summer months. I have never attended the overly hyped Taste of Danforth. I mean, I did end up at Taste of  Little Italy this year while…

iYellow Wine Club: South Africa Earth Day Taste + Tweet‏

4 Apr, 2014  |  by FGFSadmin

By Megan Stulberg | Photos by Alice Prendergast You know that dreadful folk song, “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall”? If you replace “99” with “14” and “bottles of beer” with “glasses of wine” then you have my Tuesday evening. The iYellow Wine Club is a group based in Toronto that invites its members (and guests) to sample wines from all over the world, and meet and mingle with Toronto’s fellow winos. When I received an invite to attend their “South Africa Taste…

50th Annual Elmira Maple Syrup Festival

4 Apr, 2014  |  by FGFSadmin

By Megan Stulberg I was recently invited to spend a weekend at the farm where my best friend grew up in Elmira, Ontario. Visiting a town with a whopping population of 9,931, you’d expect a relaxing and quiet weekend in the country, no? Well, it certainly started off that way: I spent Friday evening playing with the family’s seven household pets and watching Come Dine With Me reruns. The next morning, I dragged myself out of bed at 7am and then walked…

Compliments Gluten-Free Line Review & Recipes

2 Feb, 2014  |  by FGFSadmin

By Megan Stulberg You know what’s guaranteed to make my day? Coming home from an exhausting day of exam writing to find a neatly wrapped box (complete with pretty green ribbon) of goodies waiting for me on my front porch, ready to sample. The thoughtful people at Sobeys sent me a variety of products from their new Compliments gluten-free product line to review. Compliments now offers a variety of ready-to-eat treats, such as brownies and quinoa muffins. Ah, delicious! Totally up…

Normally here on Friday Foodie Five I try to bring you some of the best stuff I’ve seen and heard online during the week. But I have to tell you, we here on the Toronto Squad have been working hard for a long time on something and we need to share. For what feels like months, but has really only been a few weeks, Ama, Megan and I have been busy planning and co-curating an open call group art show…

Chatelaine Chef Series: Meet Emeril Lagasse

12 Dec, 2013  |  by FGFSadmin

Writing and photos by Megan Stulberg. Earlier this month I had the opportunity to attend a meet-and-greet with award-winning American chef Emeril Lagasse, hosted by Chatelaine Magazine and The Shopping Channel. It doesn’t seem like too long ago that my grand idea of helping my mother cook in my parents’ kitchen was yelling an Emeril-inspired “Bam!” every time an ingredient was added to the pot. Before entering the Chatelaine test kitchen, I and other media types were treated to quite…

Winter Menu Tasting at Fuel+

12 Dec, 2013  |  by FGFSadmin

Review by Megan Stulberg & photos by Aine Davis. Last week I attended a winter menu tasting at Fuel+, a nutrition-focused café and boutique grocery store located in Toronto at Church and Wellesley. Fuel+ offers a plant-based menu that caters to a variety of vegan, gluten-free and food-loving customers, who enjoy specialty coffees, protein shakes and healthy foods. The friendly (and adorable) staff at Fuel+ laid out a variety of gluten-free plant-based sweets for us to try. The sample platter included one Fuel+ exclusive product and two products brought…

Gluten Free Garage III: November 17, 2013

11 Nov, 2013  |  by FGFSadmin

By Megan Stulberg Free samples are a foreign concept to me. I work in a patisserie and at least once a day I’ll have a customer say something like, “Wow! How do you not get fat while working here?” or “I bet you love eating all the samples!” and a few times I would answer their questions by explaining Celiac disease but gave up when eyes started to glaze over. The third Gluten Free Garage took place last Sunday. Over 60…
