Now in its third year, MTL à Table (a.k.a. Montreal Restaurant Week), returns on October 30. Running through November 9, the event offers prix fix menus in 140 restaurants throughout the city. Priced at $19, $29 and $39 the set three-course meals allow patrons to hit up their go-to spot for less or try a new place at an affordable price point. It’s the perfect excuse to plan a date night or to catch up with friends. Check out a few mouth-watering dishes from a couple of choice restos below.
As a DIYer, part of the beauty of ‘doing it yourself’ is seeing something transform before your eyes. Often times that transformation requires days or weeks, and sometimes months. On the other hand, sometimes a transformation happens right before your eyes thanks to a can of spray paint.
Spray paint is the closest thing to magic I’ve found. There is a huge array of colours to choose from, matte or glossy finishes, and even metallic. My personal favourite is gold. A little gold spray paint goes a long way to dress things up.
If you’ve got a few minutes, here are five fun items to whip out the spray paint for. In a few quick coats and not much effort you’ll witness a magical transformation right in front of your eyes.
I’m going to make a bold claim here. It does not matter if your day has been bad, good, or great, because it’s about to get way better!

Count on Tyler Florence to make even the most daunting of dishes seem simple. The celeb chef and restaurateur showed off his master cooking skills at this year’s Delicious Food Show in Toronto – and it wasn’t long before stomachs started growling, the audience’s not-so-silent plea for a bite.
The renowned chef cooked up a stuffed porchetta in what felt like minutes, accompanied by a buttered turnip puree and apple mustard. The recipe can be found in his latest cookbook, Inside the Test Kitchen, which hits book stands next week.
I think it’s safe to say that Canada’s Thanksgiving weekend officially rings in baking season (for those of us who aren’t year-round bakers). I got a sneak peek at a brand new collection of bakeware from Quebec-based Trudeau, and lovely readers, I think you’ll be as pleased as I was.
The Structure collection features everything you love about silicone bakeware – non-stick and flexible properties ensure muffins and loaves easily pop right out of their pans – plus the added bonus of a reinforced steel rim for secure handling. Your baking lives just got a whole lot easier!
