Salar Madadi – The Man Behind Hamilton’s MeatVentures And Pokeh

Looking at all that Salar Madadi has accomplished, one would think he’s been in the food business for quite some time. In reality, his current path is fairly recent. An IT expert for 13 years, Salar decided to leave IT behind and follow his passion for cooking. It started when he began to entering BBQ …

#EscapeAndDiscover with the 2017 Ford Escape

So I log in to my gmail account and I see this email asking if I’m up for a weekend adventure with a 2017 Ford Escape. The only other information was the date, and that I would be one of 12 people chosen for this adventure, that was it. Creepy right? So I did what …

Toronto BBQ Week Brought To You By Samuel Adams Boston Lager

The newest kid on the block is the first annual Toronto BBQ Week presented by Samuel Adams and it runs from June 6th to 12th. I just checked my foodie crystal ball and I …

Rogers and Samsung helping me live #LifeIn4K

Confession time: I am a Blue Jays bandwagon jumper. Now that that’s out of the way, let me explain.  My father-in-law has always been a fan of the Jays. Even when they were losing more than winning, he’d religiously sit in front of the TV and watch the entire game until the very last out. …

My time with the ZTE Axon Pro

As some of you may know, I’m hoping to change up the type of content that I offer on this site. Instead of being all food I’m going to try and post articles about photography, technology, travel (hopefully) and just about anything else I’m interested in at the moment. No I’m not giving up on …

A recap of the Restaurants Canada Show

A couple of weeks ago I headed down to the Enercare Centre in Toronto for the annual Restaurants Canada Show which was held from February 28th to March 1st. I really didn’t know what to expect since it was my first time at the show, but I quickly realized that this one was different from others I’ve attended. …

Interview with Matt Dean Pettit and a giveaway

To say that Matt Dean Pettit has an eclectic resumé would be quite the understatement. He has gone from being a busboy in Midland, Ontario, to semi pro rugby player in Edinburgh, Scotland, to travelling the world as a sales representative with Moët & Chandon, and he’s not even close to finishing up that resumé. …

Ford Canada CEO Dianne Craig on her past, auto manufacturing in Canada, and, her favorite restaurant

It’s not everyday one gets to interview a CEO of a billion dollar company, especially when one started off their blogging ‘career’ as a food blogger, and yet that was exactly the opportunity I got last week at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Dianne Craig is the CEO of Ford Canada, and Vernon Chang (VC), …

Going Back To Childhood With Ford And Lego At NAIAS #FordNAIAS

My memory is so bad I can barely remember what I had for breakfast today, but, I do remember playing with Legos when I was around five years old.  My dad had to come to Canada for a pretty serious operation and we stayed with some family in Oakville for a few months. One of …
