My local Canadian food hero is Chef Scott Savoie. Through his Culinary Adventure Company Chef Scott is making that sure that both residents and visitors to the City of Toronto know that we have a very vibrant and exciting culinary scene. I had the pleasure of attending a pop-up dinner that Chef hosted and this will now be part one of the things that I'll be doing every summer from now on. I've done a review of the event that I attended so if you're interested in doing this, keep reading.

Monday night is usually TV and leftovers at my house, so when my friend Alison scored tickets to see Christina Tosi of Momofoku Milk Bar, I jumped at the chance.

In the second month of the Canadian Food Experience project, we were challenged to write about food that specific to my region and I chose pork. Now pork is available all across all of Canada but there are a lot of pig farmers in Southern Ontario so I'm going to claim as my regional cuisine. I made one of my family favourite dishes Jerk Pork with a wonderful fresh pork shoulder - Enjoy!

Yay! It's the first day of summer. To celebrate it FINALLY being warm I made us some freshly squeezed Citrus Juice this morning. Yours is chilling in the fridge - C'mon over.

Inspired by the call to action heard at the First Canadian Food Bloggers of Canada conference Valerie from a Canadian Foodie put out the call for all Canadian food bloggers to share their experiences with Canadian food. Over the next 12 months, on the 7th of every month I will write about a variety of pre-determined topics, share my culinary and cultural perspectives and post my recipes. On the 15th of the month, Valerie will post a recap of all posts for readers to share.
