There is still time - Sunday is the last day to enjoy the Chinese New Year High Tea at Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto
There are a handful of foodie experiences that I am willing to drive through a blizzard to enjoy; especially when it means I have to drive into downtown Toronto, from the country. Normally I would cancel my plans and stay in the countryside, but Shangri-la’s Chinese... #chinesenewyear #hightea

Yay! A fab new Mexican restaurant has opened in Toronto. And now I am craving tortillas, guac, queso, and maybe some Mexican corn and tacos. Okay, just order me the whole menu.
Look out Toronto, there is a new Mexican restaurant in town and it’s name is Wilbur Mexicana. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Wilbur’ is most definitely not a Mexican name. Does a Mexican restaurant really need a Mexican name? What if the name of the restaurant was... #mexicanfood #toronto

Last night I had an anaphylactic reaction during dinner, which has now changed the way I live going forward. It is not the end of the world, but I do need to exercise extreme caution.

"...Of course there are always those small moments of shock when I walk passed a table of severed pigs heads. It hasn’t deterred me from eating pork, but I generally wait a week or two between seeing a severed head and eating pork."

I will always love going to local markets when I travel, and these ones are some of my favourites.
Food, glorious food. It’s one of my favourite parts of travel, and life for that matter. I’m a semi-adventurous foodie; meaning I still have this weird gag reflex thing when it comes to eating bugs, but I am good with pretty much everything else. The more I travel the more I fall in love...

While Poznań played a sad role in WWII, Poland’s second largest city is now a centre for trade in Poland, and is home to shiny modern shopping malls, hipsters, gourmet food, and more!
One of the oldest cities in Poland, Poznań once served as the capital of Poland in the 13th century – although not for very long. Over the years Poznań’s population flirted between being mostly Polish or mostly German due to its position near the German border (only a 2... #24hours #guide

Don't read while hungry...
One of the things I love about going on a food tour is discovering new (to me) places to shop and eat. I am a foodie after all. Oh, who am I kidding, I am a bit of a food snob. Which is one of the reasons why I love going on food tours when I’m travelling... #chowbellataste&travel #toronto

In the beginning stages my lips swell, making me look a little like Angelina Jolie. It’s an exciting thing to have full puffy lips, until the rest of my mouth swells and the hives appear. Then my face looks like Angelina’s acne-riddled twin.
So… it’s been an interesting three days. Earlier in the week I wrote about discovering that I have a deadly food allergy after going into anaphylactic shock; which I never imagined would happen to me. Since then, you know, like three days ago, I have been to the ER... #anaphylaxis #foodallergy

Sometimes LONG photoessays are best. Today I am sharing 53 photos from my week in Scotland. And now I want to buy a plane ticket and go back, like tonight!
Scotland will always have a special place in my heart. It is the country of my ancestors (my great-grandfather came to Canada in 1888), as well as the first country I travelled in as a solo female traveller; mostly because nobody was free to go with me. I will always remember the... #photoessay

Over the next few months I will be experiencing some of the food tours that are on offer in Toronto in an effort to find the best ones. As part of this little foodie project I will be writing about each of the tours here on Savoir Faire Abroad, and then in late spring I’ll be doing a comparison of all of them and recommending which ones I think are the best in the city.

"I’m writing this book partially as a cathartic exercise, but also to (hopefully) help those who are going through similar challenges. As well as to give some insight to people who have friends who are going through a similar situation to mine so they understand how to be supportive and not insensitive."
Before you get really excited for me, I should probably tell you that I do not have a book agent, nor do I have a publishing house. This is not a, ‘Yay! I have a book deal!’, type of post – although, how cool would that be?! No, this is an ‘I’m writing a book!’ post. Let me explain...

Eating pierogi in Poland should definitely be on the top of every foodie’s Poland Bucket List – there is no shortage of fillings: blueberry, sauerkraut, spinach, meat, ruskie (Russian: potato and cheese). But let’s not stop at pierogi. There are plenty of traditional Polish dishes to add to your list.
“Why does everyone think we eat pierogi all the time? We eat them maybe twice a year”, states my driver with a slightly annoyed tone. We’re talking about Warsaw, Poland, and food, and I’ve asked him what Polish dish he thinks every visitor should try during their time in... #polishfood
