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!

The United Way campaign kicked off at the TC Media offices on Tuesday with a successful pancake breakfast, sponsored by President’s Choice, Ace Bakery and Nespresso. For those who don’t know, the United Way is a worldwide not-for-profit movement (in Canada, more than 100 communities have an active organization). Each United Way raises support locally, directly responding to the needs of the community.
If your mouth is watering just looking at the image below, chances are you’re a foodie. If you like to eat as much as I do, the Delicious Food Show is for you. Yummy treats will be available for the tasting from more that 200 exhibitors, and over 50 live demonstrations will have you walking away a culinary pro. Well, almost.

So your cooking game is bound to improve. What else can a food lover ask for? Hosted by Food Network Canada, the show runs from October 17 to 19 at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto’s Exhibition Place. Check out the event website for more info and to buy tickets at a discounted rate. Children under 12 get in free, so make it a family affair!
