Grilled cheese and wine in the heart of the Plateau

There are only a few things in the culinary world that I’m truly averse to: green bell peppers, scallops, and blue cheese. The first is an under-ripe version of the sweet, delightful, red pepper, while scallops are too fishy to be appetizing, and blue cheese just makes me want to brush my teeth. There’s something… Keep Reading

From China to Syria, unusual savours around the world

A true test for the world-traveler is whether they are able to adapt to the local culinary customs. Horror stories of total body evacuation by oral or rectal means are far too common. It is natural for the body to react this way to a new diet, but once the problem is solved, the mind… Keep Reading

Getting a ride without maxing out your credit card

A wise man once told me “A Bixi is like a prostitute. It’s only five bucks, and everyone gets a ride.” I countered that a Bixi can’t contract venereal diseases, a safety feature that has certainly helped the Bixi system attract millions of riders since its introduction to Montreal’s streets last summer. The Bixi—a contraction… Keep Reading

Back to blog basics

Cooking is a science, and a fun and delicious one at that. And like any science, experimentation is key.  Julia Child meticulously tested her recipes, which is why they’re still the heart and soul of so many kitchens.

Library Reviews: Episode 3 – Cybertheque

commons.wikimedia.org   Cybertheque (correctly pronounced Si-Ber-THECK) is one of the newer additions to the McGill library system. Below Redpath, the library is adjacent to the Redpath-Leacock tunnel. It’s best known for its vibrant colours, group study areas, electronic resources, and overuse of glass in its design. As far as I can tell, the only books… Keep Reading

Mama Lytle’s cheesecake

flickr.com This cheesecake is not the spring form New York cheesecake you’re used to. Rather, it’s supple and pudding-like in texture, with a delicious cream cheese flavour. It has a graham cracker crust—a must for cheesecake­—and a soft cream cheese filling. A sour cream topping is a perfect garnish for this yummy treat.   Crust:… Keep Reading
