königswinter

When you read a name such as “Königswinter” you might think darkness and coldness… Well, although darkness is definitely part of the charm of this resort town one can also describe it as medieval architecture at its best. The town itself circles a beautiful castle made by an archbishop of Cologne in the early 12th…

bad herrenalb

Who said a trip to the Black Forest can’t be rustically posh? Located in the southwestern part of Germany and surrounded by the Black Forest you can find Bad Herrenalb. As a little girl I remember going here with my family and enjoying the beauty of this place, and I wanted to go back here to explore…

oh toronto

Growing up in Toronto I have my personal likes and dislikes about the city, however when I am away and I come back to visit Toronto it’s an entirely different feeling. I can describe it as a nostalgic panicked feeling that somehow, somewhere in me, lives a great realization that we are all working against…

then there was 200 and pink

What a great feeling it is to accomplish a huge task, get compliments and be hugely inspired to do more and more and a lot more!… That’s the best I could come up with to describe my recent involvement with a party I was hired to cater for – three beautiful ladies’ 40th birthdays! The theme of…

london, part II

In a previous post on London I specified that I love London, well to prove it I went back! I wanted to visit a very close friend of mine that has recently moved to London which provided for a perfect opportunity to take in London again. And this time it was more of a culinary…

30th birthday

What do Montjuic Castle, Las Ramblas, a huge outdoor market, W Hotel, and Gaudi have in common? Fairly easy to answer: Barcelona, is where I spent my 30th birthday. What is it about people and turning a number greater than 2 that ends with a big 0 and needing to justify something to themselves by booking…

Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words, slight difference though in this case because it’s a video. This video signifies a major part of what artcookery.ca is all about. I am really amazed to see people’s responses and I really hope we can influence people to eat better, understand food and push personal boundaries…

?

Oh what joy it is to walk around a beautiful historic island, surrounded by narrow streets all intertwined around a massive lagoon. Where do you think I am? Venezia, of course! Last Easter weekend was spent enjoying the wonderfulness of this city tucked away in the beautiful Italia. We arrived at the Venezia airport at…

artcookery.ca

The spring/summer season was opened with an off-the-chart five course picnic menu, which I am quite proud of. A lot of planning and work went into the hashing out of the details, but the end result made those 2 AM nights all worth it. I am also quite lucky to have found such a wonderful,…
