Check out my COOKING CLASSES for 2016! Ciao!

2016 classes schedule is up. Great gift giving!

My cooking classes are expanding. See class description here.

Grano Ristorante is an amazing venue for my Italian cooking themes. Previous class participants have expressed their total satisfaction.

The décor, atmosphere and attentive service of Grano’s host Roberto Martella and his staff, coupled with my down-to-earth instructing style makes for an exiting evening: like an evening cooking with family and friends.

Bounty of the County: Fiorito

So pleased to be mentioned in Joe Fiorito’s article in today’s Toronto Star.

Angelo Bean is a man I admire because, some years ago, he said he wanted to retire from his job at the LCBO and start making Italian sausages. A man after my own heart, and arteries.

And many people have that dream, or its equivalent, but Angelo not only did what he said he’d do, he does it as well as it can be done.

He makes salsicce and salume, and many of his sausages are flavoured with the wine and cider of the region, and he fed us these things and more for lunch, and then he pointed us in several directions and turned us loose.
