Gearing Up For Taste of Toronto

7 Jul, 2014  |  by Ama Scriver

Get your stomachs ready, Toronto! The Taste Festival is touching down in on this side of the Atlantic for the first time ever with Taste of Toronto from July 24-27 at Fort York. With its humble beginnings in London, England, the Taste festival has grown to be one of the largest and most bad-ass food festivals across the pond. Now, Toronto has the honour of being the first North American city to celebrate their very own Taste Festival. Beyond the…

Le Dolci — Cooking Classes Just Got Sweeter

7 Jul, 2014  |  by Ama Scriver

words by Ama Scriver | photos by Yuli Scheidt If you love food half as much as I do then you’re probably also left wondering sometimes, “How do they do it?”. Thankfully, there are several cooking classes around the city to indulge those Masterchef feels, but the ones that have really caught my eye lately are those offered by Le Dolci. Owner and operator of the quintessential French bakery, Lisa Sanguedolce, has ventured outside the realm of pastry for the…

1) Ottawa friends: if you haven’t already been to check out the newly opened Seed to Sausage General Store, go now! While you’re sampling artisanal charcuterie, say hi to our good friend Kelly from The Gouda Life. 2) We are totally in love with this article from Autostraddle, “Fat-Booty Butch Buys a Suit on a Budget“. It’s the tale of a brash & brave queer butch-with-a-booty and the trials and tribulations of finding well-fitting, plus-sized clothes on a budget. As…

I.R.L. — Mobile Photography Workshop with Yuli!

6 Jun, 2014  |  by Yuli Scheidt

words & photos by Yuli Scheidt It happens often that those who peek over my shoulder while I’m Instagramming will ask just how I do it. I’ve been saying for far too long that I should put together a workshop to share my tips, tricks, and workflow. Well finally, the people behind Henry’s School of Imaging have given me the motivation to do just that by asking me to develop a Mobile Food Photography class. I’ll be taking those who…

Lookin’ Good Girl — Le Dolci Picnic Photo Shoot

6 Jun, 2014  |  by Yuli Scheidt

When Dundas West bakeshop and foodie studio Le Dolci asked Fat Girl Food Squad if they wanted to team up for something sweet this summer, all I could think about was a picnic in the park. Le Dolci is located on the quieter, but no less beautiful, side of Trinity Bellwoods Park in the heart of Toronto and is the perfect backdrop for an FGFS team picnic. Since the crew needed some new headshots and an excuse to hang out…

Batter Up: Canteen Serves Up Corn-Dog Realness

5 May, 2014  |  by Ama Scriver

by Ama Scriver | photos by Yuli Scheidt Listen up Toronto and listen real good. I have found some legit corn-dogs. None of this gross fried stuff that makes you feel like you’re going to be sick afterwards. Oh no. This corn-dog was heaven-sent straight from the kitchens of Oliver & Bonacini’s Canteen! To celebrate the beginning of a new Blue Jays season (I wonder if my homeboy Drake will be buying stocks in the Jays too?), the O&B team developed this…

Amaya Group of Restaurants take on Indian Street Food

4 Apr, 2014  |  by Ama Scriver

I am a huge Indian food fan. One of my go-to take out joints on is Amaya Express on Ossington. So when we were invited to check out the new spring menu at Amaya the Indian Room on Bayview, I was pretty excited. This would be some OG stuff, as it is one of the original Amaya Group of Restaurant locations. The Amaya Group of Restaurants was founded back in 2007 by Chef Hemany Bhagwani which currently has 15…
