A taste of Italy…but not in Italy

A taste of Italy…but not in Italy

I’ve been to Italy once, and I hope to visit again. It is a carb and gelato-lovers dream – a place where all my favourite foods are plentiful. I had a sandwich in Florence that was rolled up like a burrito, but instead of a tortilla wrap, it was rolled up in a thin sheet of […]

Jamaica-me Hungry!

Jamaica-me Hungry!

It’s no secret I base many of my travel decisions on the food I can eat while I’m away – and that was the main reason for choosing Jamaica for a winter getaway. I’ve been there once before – briefly on a press trip – two years ago and remember eating the most delicious jerk […]

A delicious night with Thai-inspired food and canola

A delicious night with Thai-inspired food and canola

I never paid much attention to canola before. It was an all-purpose oil my parents often used and I knew it from the bottle that sat on the counter.
