Long before we had Trump to fight each other about, the Internet went to war over children - specifically the banning of children from public spaces like restaurants. But here's the thing - this issue isn't really about bad kids, it's about bad parents. And that's not a good enough reason to ban good kids and good parents.

I could understand people bailing out on a root canal; but do people really bail out on a chance to savor fresh grilled swordfish at Toronto's Scaramouche or truffles at Ottawa's Beckta? Apparently they do, not only at those two fine restaurants, but at establishments from one end of the country to the other.

Young people are obsessed with colours, food is colourful, which means it creates great still shots. Millennials aren't obsessed with food as much as they are taking pictures of it for social engagement. Since smartphone owners and purchasers of photo editing apps and filters are still dominated by youngins, it's almost impossible for this generation to not be able to take salivating photos, upload them to social media and connect with the rest of the world. Social media is changing the way they eat, maybe even the way we non-millennials eat.

While we focus on (and maybe obsess over) the nutrients, vitamins or calories in our food, food social enterprises like Newcomer Kitchen are using food's potential to open minds, build healthy communities, and open minds. "You are what you eat" takes on new meaning if we consider not only what is in our dinner, but how and with whom we are dining.

While Madrid is a city in which you could easily spend a year and not see, do or eat everything, it's also an easily accessible stopover if you're just passing through. I managed to sneak in about 24 hours in Spain's capital city. And it's amazing how much one can accomplish in such a short time with an itinerary. Unless you're the aimless wandering type, a plan is key.

You Should Totally Go To Ibiza (In Your 40s)

I was a club kid of the late-'90s in London, when house music had merged into the mainstream and was no longer solely entertaining audiences of the "underground" variety. Back then, I never made it to the music Mecca that is Ibiza. And I've always regretted it. Twenty years later, to prove that a 40-something could still work the local scene, I hightailed it to what may very well be considered the clubbing capital of the world.

At first thought, a fusion of Japanese and Italian dishes might seem odd. For Francesco Apreda, however, the melding of these two cuisines came across as a natural progression. Apreda spent years in Japan learning about that nation's flavours and cooking techniques. When he returned to Rome, he applied what he had learned to his native cuisine, and the results are marvellous.
