Want to DIY Your Own Tofu? Here’s How!

12 Dec, 2015  |  by Amanda Spinosa

When presented with the idea of making tofu from scratch, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little intimidated. It seems like it would be a very intense process, but I’ll try anything once so I dove in head first with my fingers crossed. When my Make-Your-Own Tofu Kit from Morinaga arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to try it out. On their website, you can order all different types of kits ranging from silken to extra…

When the press release came into my inbox announcing that BareBurger was expanding from New York to Canada, you don’t understand how thrilled I was. One of the biggest food memories I took away from my last trip to NYC was grabbing burgers at the Bareburger in Time Square before catching an off-Broadway play. It was affordable, the menu was extensive and the quality was a step-above all your regular ol’ fast-food chains. Fast forward to present day, the media…

Fatty Cakes, Fatty Cakes, NYC.

2 Feb, 2014  |  by Guest Post

As you might know, I am a sucker for a really good dessert, and apart from doughnuts my other love is cookies. When I was in Brooklyn checking out the City Reliquary Museum they were selling local sweets and I got to try a Fattycakes cookie. Let me tell you that it was hands down the best cookie I have ever had in my whole life. I’m a sucker for the “Chipwich”, not exactly the ice cream sandwich, but a…

For many foodies, Daniel Boulud (New York based celebrity chef) is a commanding force in the realm of french cooking. When he decided to bring his restaurants (on the second floor and the downstairs bar) to the Four Seasons hotel chain, it would be an understatement to say those in Toronto were excited. photos by yuli scheidt Originally posted to Ama’s weekly column on Toronto Is Awesome.

Pizza Underground – Deliciously greasy nostalgia tunes

12 Dec, 2013  |  by FGFSadmin

Written by Acacia Christensen There are few things greater in life than pizza and good tunes. Something I never could’ve prepared myself for though is the melding my favourite food with my favourite child star and one of the best bands. That’s right PIZZA x VELVET UNDERGROUND x MACAULAY CULKIN have all come together to amok the hilariously wonderful group Pizza Underground. Pizza Underground are a The Velvet Underground cover band with a cheesy twist, all the songs are now…

Gluten-Free Eats in NYC

10 Oct, 2013  |  by Guest Post

This year I spent Canadian Thanksgiving in New York City. We didn’t opt for the traditional turkey and stuffing, but we ate enough other food to make up for it. Everything pictured and described below is gluten-free, as America is surprisingly well-informed about the severity of cross-contamination. I didn’t get sick once and I have quite the sensitive belly. But since we were on vacation, I did not bother to eat strictly vegan (I’ll eat vegan 9 times out of 10, but…

S’Mac currently has two locations in NYC, both in Manhattan, and they offer dine-in, take-out, free delivery and catering for all your many cravings. If I lived in this city…
