#WomanCrushWednesday – Editor in Chief for the Fader, Naomi Zeichner

11 Nov, 2015  |  by rochellelatinsky

This week I’m dedicating my very first #WomanCrushWednesday post to a woman who’s way with words and love of Drake is almost bigger than the entirety of the The 6ix (Toronto). I recently had the opportunity to meet a long time journalistic idol of mine – Naomi Zeichner. Naomi is currently the Editor in Chief for The Fader. A publication that continues to remain relevant and interesting despite the perpetual slog for page views. Her interview style and casual ease is…

When you think of All Bran the first thing that comes to mind is fibre. Little did I know that the pantry staple of my childhood is an excellent addition to all kinds of dishes. I recently had the opportunity to sample some tasty dishes where All Bran was the star. Chef Craig Harding of Campagnolo graciously opened up his restaurant to myself and a few other media folks to showcase why All Bran is not just a breakfast treat….

Cooking in the kitchen with MissFresh

11 Nov, 2015  |  by rochellelatinsky

October was a pretty busy month for me. In between the election and other life commitments I found myself absent from the kitchen. I like to get at least one super healthy meal in a day to keep my energy up and that good glow on my skin, but time simply wasn’t on my side. Then fate intervened and MissFresh came into my life. MissFresh is the newest company on the block that offers “unique recipes and pre-portioned fresh ingredients…

Toronto Bourbon Week: Insomnia’s Bourbon Brunch

11 Nov, 2014  |  by rochellelatinsky

Toronto Bourbon Week (November 14 – 20) has come and gone, bringing with it thoughtful pairings and infusions of this sweet nectar. I’ve become a bit of a bourbon connoisseur lately, and loved having the opportunity to combine bourbon and brunch, two of my ultimate favourite things. Insomnia Restaurant on Bloor, an Annex mainstay known for their delightful brunch, played host to Bourbon Brunch. We started our two-course meal with an In-House 5-Week Cask Aged Manhattan. Aged in house specifically for…

Cooking Burgers With Beer At The Works

10 Oct, 2014  |  by rochellelatinsky

The Works Gourmet Burger Bistro has been making headway into their planned nationwide expansion, with more than 20 restaurants throughout Ontario and one in Newfoundland so far. Yet the fast-growing full service restaurant chain has been experimenting with what they can put in between burger buns since they first opened their doors in Ottawa. With more than 50 burger options on their menu today, they show no signs of stopping their domination and innovation on the gourmet burger scene. I recently had the…

Pukka Raises the Pulse on St Clair West

5 May, 2014  |  by Guest Post

words by Leigh van Maaren | photos by Rochelle Latinsky I straight-up love that Pukka is only a short, down-hill walk from my apartment. On St. Clair West, an area that has seen rapid re-development since I moved to the ‘hood 4 years ago, Pukka is serving up elevated Indian food that is quickly becoming a neighbourhood staple. Pukka ranks among the few restaurants along the strip that are open 7 days a week and when we walk in on…

Matt Basile is not just another Rebel without a Kitchen

4 Apr, 2014  |  by Ama Scriver

For those who are familiar with the food truck scene in Canada, the name Matt Basile is one that should ring a bell. He is the owner/operator of the Fidel Gastro food truck and his most recent endeavour, a “brick and mortar with the heart of a pop up”, Lisa Marie on Queen St West. But in the last two years, Basile has taken on a new journey.  Thanks to the Travel + Escape Network, he now spends three months of the…
