A Taste of Toronto

06 Apr 2009, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in chefs & restaurants

Chef Mark and I have just returned from our “Tempt Your Tummy in Toronto” food and wine tour, and we have tons to share (info, not food, as we already feasted on that). Mark started off the Toronto recap on CMN, and we’ll continue to post more news and videos in the coming weeks. On Friday night our lovely hosts treated us to a real taste of Toronto — in the form of a 9-hour marathon of fine dining. I suppose this is somewhat like the Bordeaux marathon, only with less exercise. We had the opportunity to sample the finest…

Savour Food & Wine Festival

02 Mar 2009, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in chefs & restaurants, food, travel

We were fortunate to have sunny weather for our trip to Nova Scotia last week, where we attended the Savour Food & Wine festival featuring some of Nova Scotia’s best chefs, winemakers and brewers. This is the event’s 7th year, and takes place throughout the month of February with tasting dinners, wine tastings and cooking classes throughout the region. (Now, dear readers, if you’ve been following closely — and we know you have — you saw that our first tasting dinner was at The Five Fisherman.) Presented by the Restaurant Association of Nova Scotia, Savour has built up a great…

Dinner at the Five Fishermen

26 Feb 2009, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in chefs & restaurants, food, travel

We kicked off our tour of the Savour Food & Wine Festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia last night with a tasting dinner at The Five Fisherman, situated in one of the city’s oldest buildings. Chef Dafydd Williams-Jones and restaurant manager Gary MacDonald treated us to a tasting of Nova Scotia specialties, which were wonderfully enhanced by the presence of sommelier Avery Gavel and Gary Ramey of Blomidon Estate Winery, who guided us through each course with a selection from his and other local vineyards. Here is a little sampling of what we tasted last night. We wish you could have…

Oh, Canada…

16 Jul 2004, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in travel

I found British Columbia to be the optimal location for a July visit. The air is temperate and dry, and the views are magnificent. My travels took me from the mountain’s peak to the water’s edge as I meandered through Vancouver, Whistler and Vancouver Island. The farmer’s market in Vancouver is a sight to behold — every stall is a study in color and texture. I could not believe the variety of exotic ingredients for sale, and was saddened that I did not have a kitchen in which to experiment. It was not so bad to settle for dining out,…

A Feast for the Senses

15 Jul 2004, Posted by Jennifer Iannolo in chefs & restaurants, travel

On my recent trip to Vancouver I hosted a dinner party at Lumiere, a Mobil 5-Star restaurant owned by Chef Rob Feenie. Rob is one of my favorite chefs, and I knew he and his staff would put on a brilliant show for us. Their efforts did not disappoint, as my guests and I were presented with a special eight-course summer menu paired with wines for our feast. We spent the evening in sensory satiation. As the courses progressed I gazed around the table to view each person’s reaction. Some people I knew quite well, others I did not, but…
