DISH THIS: Pomegranate And Orange French Toast

Posted December 4, 2011 by Erika

When it comes down to a breakfast item, I will 95% of the time pick salty over sweet. Don’t get me wrong, I will never turn down a pancake or french toast or waffle, but I prefer them as a side to my eggs, and cheese and toast, etc. You can see why I am […]

Evan’s Kitchen: Adventures with Mushrooms

Posted June 22, 2011 by Evan

A while back I received a rather pricey bottle of wine from my friend Andrea as a birthday gift. She gave it to me with the caveat that I had to make her dinner to pair with the wine. At first I thought this was a great idea until I remembered: 1. That was totally […]

#MTLife: Le Saloon Turns 20

Posted July 24, 2012 by Blair

Welcome to #MTLife, a little column about my adventures in Montreal. For my first foray as a writer for the Gaily, I wanted to write about my night out at an event celebrating the 20th anniversary of Le Saloon, the best restaurant in the village (IMHO) and still after 20 years, the place to see […]

I love Middle Eastern food and when the word “Syria” or “Israel” appears in the news, sometimes I just start to drool and think “mmmmmm hummus…” Offended? Don’t be. Violence in the Middle East –> BAD Food in the Middle […]

Kitchen Bitchin’: Salad isn’t just for skinny girls

Posted October 1, 2012 by Melanie

Loving salad really isn’t anything to be ashamed of. At least that’s what I used to believe living the hipster life in Montreal—pot-lucks with friends, picnics in Parc Lafontaine, terrace hopping on St. Denis… But now I live in England, and well, I guess being a vegetarian is a bit more of an anomaly. Here […]

Tongue Trials 1: Dim Sum

Posted February 8, 2013 by Sarah

La Maison Kam Fung 1111 St Urbain St Metro Place D’Armes Dim Sum is kinda like the Chinese version of Tapas but way more fun. Bite sized portions of Chinese dishes are served on small plates or in steam baskets that are carted around the restaurant and selected for eating as they pass your table. […]

Kitchen Bitchin’: What To Cook For That Obnoxious Friend Who Just Got Back From Thailand…

Posted August 2, 2012 by Melanie

You know who I’m talking about. It’s not enough that you distractedly clicked through 239 of their photos on facebook, but they insist on coming over so they can show you the EXTENDED iPhoto album plus their Photoshopped favorites. All the while bragging about all the completely “un-touristy” shit they did. “We went to the […]
