KEEPING YOU UPDATED ON ITALY!

We’ve got some exciting new details to announce for our Italy trip!

Chef Riccardo De Prá, a fifth generation restauranteur from the Veneto region of Italy will be hosting us for three days during the trip! During our stay, he will be instructing the group on gourmet Italian meals like risotto, and leading us through the Dolomite mountains, where we will be scavenging for mushrooms and other ingredients!

We will also be visiting local vineyards to sample their delicious wines, and learn about the traditional wine-making process, attending a coffee-tasting class at a Pasticceria, and making an additional stop in Venice to enjoy a delicious meal at a traditional Venetian bacaro.

Spaces are filling up, so call us soon to book this once-in-a-lifetime trip!

Easter is coming

What is your favourite memory of Easter, mine was getting dressed up in a new dress grandma would buy us, then going to church and coming home to open up Easter eggs, the Italian ones had little prizes in the bottom. We would then go to a family member’s for a BIG italian lunch! Lamb was on the menu and it was (and still is) a big family affair.

Aunties and Uncles would give us chocolates and toys and grandma always had a little envelope of Easter money in tow. It was and still is a very special time of year for our family. This Easter we will be celebrating with our family in Italy and also checking in our Italian friends who are hosting our culinary adventure this October.

In the shop we will have some chocolate fun, Easter cookies, macarons and easter cupcakes for you to give to your little and loved ones. Pop in and say hi and show us your pretty Easter Sunday outfit. We’re at 1006 Dundas Street West, downtown Toronto right across from Trinity Bellwoods Park.
