Amused and then some…

Saturday, January 27th, 2007

To celebrate my birthday earlier this week, Mr. Vin de Table surprised me with dinner at Amuse-Bouche, a place that had been on our list to try for sometime. The cosy little restaurant has warm red walls, and is on a quiet neighbourhood street and has the perfect ambience for a dinner for two, especially […]

It has been a while…

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

It amazes me how time seems to fly by sometimes, and I have nothing substantial to show for it. I wonder if everyone has that same feeling. I can not believe that Christmas is but a month away, and now like every year, I vow that I will be more organised than the previous year… […]

Brunch at Xacutti

Sunday, October 8th, 2006

Xacutti is one of our favourite restaurants in Toronto; the chef there does a great job with “Indian fusion”; but only recently did we think to try it out for brunch. The brunch does not dissapoint! The menu has traditional brunch favourites: pancakes, crepes, waffles, but with just enough of a twist to make it […]

Cook Much Lately?

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

Sadly, no. But I have an excuse. Mr Vin de Table and I decided to make the effort to get out to Toronto’s International Film Festival this year, and take the opportunity to enjoy it, since it is right in our back yard. Because of the festival’s schedules (sometimes two films a day), meals consisted […]

Afternoon Tea

Sunday, August 27th, 2006

Afternoon tea is one of those treats that I make an effort to enjoy at regular intervals, whenever possible. I’m not sure what I like most about it; is it the devon cream and warm scones? the sandwiches made of crust-less white bread? or perhaps it is the very idea of being able to take […]

Weekend in Jordan, Ontario

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

Mr VdeT and I got away for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary, and although I suggested numerous options, he wanted to go back to the Inn on the Twenty and Cave Spring Cellars in Jordan, Ontario. We’ve been back several times since we got married there five years ago, and although I worry that […]

Very Satisfying Vietnamese Cuisine

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

I have just returned from dinner with my sister and her mister at Anh Dao, a local Vietnamese restaurant. It was the kind of meal that you almost had to work for, especially the summer rolls. You can have the restaurant make the rolls for you, but it is so much more satisfying to compile […]

Dinner at George

Friday, July 21st, 2006

To celebrate five years of wedded bliss (where does the time go?), we had dinner at a local restaurant called George. For special occassions, it is tough to get Mr Vin de Table to eat anywhere other than our favourite restaurant, but this time he agreed to try something else, so George it was. In […]
