Today is World Food Day

October 16 is World Food Day.  According to the World Bank upwards of 70-million people are facing extreme poverty.   But it’s not just people living in other areas of the world that are facing life-threatening food shortages.  Right here in Canada, nearly 900-thousand people relied on Food Banks in March 2010. That’s an almost...

A good bottle of wine may be the answer to investment blues

by Erin In these shaky economic times, you just may find the cure to your financial woes at the bottom of  a bottle. Well, likely more at the top. As more and more of us watch idly by while our carefully planned RSP’s and hard-earned saving melt away like ice in a Manhattan cocktail, many...

Bistro Dining at Chez Moi

by Erin When the weather turns cooler, I, and I suspect many of you, start to turn towards heartier fare and nostalgic classics. And even though it’s been quite balmy in Toronto over the last few days, it’s still cool enough for a scarf (maybe not a jacket), and the bounty of squash overflowing in...

Wine & Weight Loss

by Erin Let’s be honest: as sommeliers, our jobs are awesome. Eating amazing foods and drinking spectacular wine is great. And the fact that we get paid to do it, is just icing on the cake. But there is no free lunch. And I’ve paid a price for my wining and dining lifestyle with my...

Biodynamic Serendipity

by Erin Have you ever had those moments, when you think about a song you haven’t heard in years and then it comes on the radio? Or a long lost friend you are about to call is on the other end when you pick up the phone to dial their number? I’ve recently had one...

Talk Dry, Drink Sweet

by Erin The other day my sister brought along a friend to a trade tasting. Her friend, a self-described novice, but with a keen interest in knowing more, asked to join us, looking to glean a tip or two. When we were introduced he immediately apologized for his “gauche” sweet wine preferences, and throughout the...

Familiar Favourites and New Loves Emerge at Taste Ontario!

by Erin Taste Ontario rolled into Toronto this week for its annual big-city love-in for the province’s wineries. It’s one of the few tasting’s Courtney & I would not miss and we were there with glass-in-hand, offering air-kisses and hugs while we tasted out way through familiar favourites, and discovered some new ones. Here’s a...

Celebrating the Joys Of Autumn

by Erin This morning I was busy decorating for fall. Sure, I am a bit neurotic to decorate for the seasons as my “friends” tell me, but fall is, without a doubt, my absolute favourite time of year. I love that I can now make small movements without breaking into a sweat, and I breath...

Wines of Brasil puts its Best Foot Forward in Toronto

by Erin Our mom says it’s always good to try new things, so when the Wines of Brasil sent out an invite for a tasting downtown Toronto, we couldn’t think of a better way to spend a couple hours on a Tuesday afternoon. Brazil is a burgeoning wine region; the website says it’s been around...

Great Matches for Wedded Bliss

By Erin We spent the weekend at a couple of bridal shows, and wow, what an eye opener. As someone who’s never been married or even paid much attention to weddings (even when I was in them, I was known as the go-with-the-flow bridesmaid), I never realized the choice facing brides today: an contemporary or...
