If you’ve read my post for the other week, you’d know I was given the Philips Air Fryer to test out. It’s been a blast trying different recipes to see if the machine really does live up to its claim of “frying” foods with little to no oil. Not only have I recreated some of their recipes, but modifying my own original recipes to omit any frying process has been an eye-opening experience. In all honesty, I was skeptical at the beginning. How does this thing “fry” with air? It was a question I set out to answer. [click to continue…]

Every neighbourhood likes to have things to call their own. Like a watering-hole for a casual 5 à 7, maybe a boutique specializing in incense and dream-catchers or even the dep that sells loosies and wine coolers to under age kids.

As you can tell by now, I love Asian food. I love all aspects of Asian cuisine; cooking it, eating it, I’m content with just looking at photos of it.

However, there is often a stigma attached to Asian food that it’s mostly fried and fully of oil in preparation; which in all honesty is partly true.

My girl and I were looking for a place to eat on a quite Tuesday night. So we started walking around downtown to find a new place to eat or revisit one of our numerous favourite restaurants in Montreal. As with most people these days, what started off as a walk, slowly became a Pokemon […]

My Favourite Vegetarian Restaurants in Montreal

Sometimes I eat vegetables. There I said it. Jokes aside, I enjoy eating healthy. Not only out of necessity (science stipulates certain affects pounding down cheeseburgers and poutines has on the body), but out of choice. As much as I love BBQ, burritos, pizza as the next person, I can’t help but crave something lighter […]
