Eating up the Hill: Someone prorogue these perogies
I spent the last provincial election in Parkdale-High Park, and among several regrets is that I didn't take the opportunity to sample some real, homemade, honest to goodness Ukranian perogies. Maybe I'll have the opportunity when I'm in Winnipeg in May for ...

Eating up the Hill: Vegetarian pizza with bacon
I know I haven't blogged in some time. I moved to Ottawa in November to work for a Member of Parliament, which a) takes up most of my time, and b) makes blogging on politics pretty difficult. Then, one day, it occurred to me: how about a political food blog...

Eating up the Hill: You don't order a burger at the Parliamentary Reasturant
I forgot what I'll assume should be one of the foodie rules: don't order something simple at a place that specializes in the fancier things. Or, put another way, if you want a burger go to a burger joint. I found myself for the second time in the Parliament...
I forgot what I'll assume should be one of the foodie rules: don't order something simple at a place that specializes in the fancier things. Or, put another way, if you want a burger go to a burger joint. I found myself for the second time in the Parliamentary Restaurant last week.

Eating up the Hill: Jewish wine and bacon-wrapped scallops
There can be a lot of receptions in Ottawa that different lobby groups and associations host to meet Parliamentarians. And often, many of them happen on the same night. Like Tuesday night. We had five on our agenda tonight we managed to make it to four. Sad...
