The Chase Fish & Oyster, the more relaxed sister of the upscale Chase fine dining spot, is the latest restaurant to throw their Sunday brunch hat in the proverbial ring. Having just debuted their menu at the end of April, I had a chance to taste a few of the menu items.

Think of Italy and one thinks of food, but not many people think 'mountains.' Yet mountains remain a principle source of the traditional, handcrafted food production Italy is famous for. And nowhere is that more true than with honey production.

Being organized about meals doesn't necessarily mean you need to be super structured about it. One of the most common push backs to meal planning I hear is that people don't want to be stuck eating a specific meal on a specific day. I totally get that.

Canadians catch a hard time for their funny accents, overly-polite demeanors, and of course, Justin Bieber, but those who are in the know do not tease them about their food. Canadians enjoy an abundance of dishes that many of their neighbours south of the border never get to taste -- and they're missing out.

Businesses Need To Focus On People, Not Culture

Like society, a company's success depends on a culture that is created and cared for by its people. We know this and yet sometimes this fact gets lost. At the companies I'm involved in, we feed people, but we're actually about building culture. There is no better way to bring people together than breaking bread. Culture is not a something, or a someplace, it's not even a someone -- it's the shared space between.

There is a lot of thought that goes into marrying a city. I mean, do you get along? Do you have the same taste in art and music? But most importantly, will you still excite each other day in and day out for as long as you both shall live?

The farm to table approach is a winner in my kitchens. I like to know where my food comes from, who produces it and how it's produced. I rely on a carefully-selected group of vendors for our meats and vegetables. But nothing beats finding your culinary delights instead of buying them.

In the Middle Ages, roveja still endured as the staple diet eaten in the form of a "puls," which is an ancient Roman-style of porridge and consumed with a savoury sauce on top. Over time roveja was forgotten. By the 1990s only a few local people remembered roveja, and some found the plants growing in gullies or near streams.

The addition of even a little chili in your meals can add a massive vitamin boost. Chilies give Vitamins A, B3, B6, and K, and a whopping 400 per cent or more of our daily dose of Vitamin C. Chilies are also high in iron, potassium, copper and magnesium.

The Canadian Diabetes Association (CDA) reports that rates of diabetes are disproportionately higher among low-income individuals and First Nations people, two demographics that also face high rates of food insecurity. It's easy to tell someone to "just eat healthier," but it is a lot more difficult to actually put into practice, especially if you can't afford it.

Unless you have a friend or relative from one of the islands, it's virtually unknown to the majority of the populace. This is a good and bad thing. Good -- because these islands preserve some of the most untouched and natural beauty left in the world. Bad -- because if you're not here, you're missing out.

The countries of Central Europe -- especially the ones that were part of the Communist bloc -- don't attract the foodie kind as much. It's not surprising, since communism did serious damage to all kind of culture, including gastronomy. But Prague's culinary culture is just beginning to find its wheels again.

When hosting a dinner party, it's almost become second nature to make sure there are a couple bottles of wine at the ready. In fact, most guests will even bring a bottle or two to make sure there is ample supply for the evening. While it's true that wine and food pairing has been a customary part of history for ages, this dedication to serving appropriate wine and food pairings is a relatively recent cultural phenomenon. We think it's time to get back to discovering great beer pairings.

Over the past few years, the terms 'organic' and 'sustainable' have become buzzwords for health. But these words go beyond a person's health. Supporting local organic food and farming can help revitalize the economy. Community-based agriculture has the potential to create jobs and develop small businesses. Encouraging locals to stay healthy is the side job.

Legend says that these nine lonely islands, 1300 km off the coast of Portugal, are leftovers from Atlantis. In reality, the archipelago was born out of volcanic activity, and first settled by Europeans starting in the 1400s. Since then, the Azores have flown under the radar for many travellers, partly due to their distance.
