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®…

Just Like Ma: Mom’s Black Bean and Oxtail Soup

10 Oct, 2015  |  by Linda Dianne

My mother is notorious for her complete and utter avoidance of the kitchen. While she can whip up a handful of yummy meals, she would rather order out or coax someone else in the family to cook. But despite her aversion to cooking, the one meal that brings me the most joy is my mother’s Sopa de Frijoles (or Black Bean and Oxtail Soup). Jokingly named Rent Day Soup by my sister and me, due to it appearance around our…

Comfort Food: Panera Bread’s Broth Bowls

There is something very comforting about Panera Bread. It’s got the consistent quality of your trusted fast food joint, but the coziness of a coffee shop that makes you want to bring your Snuggie and a laptop for long stays. As a student who attended school down the street from one, that was a common spot for me to drown in studies between sips of soup. My food partner Aviva also grew up with a Panera Bread five minutes from…

On Cannon, a couple of storefronts from the corner James St N., sits my favourite place to eat in Hamilton: The Burnt Tongue. Even if you’re not from Hamilton, you’ve probably heard of The Burnt Tongue. With food this good, word of mouth travels fast. This local gem has a rotating menu that consists of soups, grilled cheese sandwiches, salad, burgers, and frites. They also feature Rudy’s Paletas (the perfect cure for any burned tongue). I’ll readily admit that every…

    Photos by Yui Scheidt Originally posted to Ama’s twice-weekly column on Toronto is Awesome.  You know what would warm you hop on a nice soggy day like today? A nice hot bowl of chowder. Thankfully, Oceanwise, which is a conservation program put together by the Vancouver Aquarium (who knew?!), organized a wonderfully delicious Chowder Chowdown just the other week to bring awareness to the issues surrounding sustainable seafood. The annual showdown in Toronto meant some serious competition including Executive…

Dundas Park Kitchen Bringing Comfort Food Home

8 Aug, 2013  |  by Ama Scriver

Over the past few months, a stretch of new restaurants have opened along Dundas West that have been offering healthy, grab and go choices.  One such place is the Dundas Park Kitchen, which nestled right beside the Belljar Cafe. I first came into contact with owners Alex Tso and Melanie Harris after they offered up an old espresso machine (on Facebook) from the old Portuguese restaurant they were refurbishing to make their own.  My partner ended up obtaining the machine…
