For olive oil enthusiasts and experts, that's a pretty offensive way to make a decision. After all, just like quality makes a difference when selecting the right wine or Scotch, it also does in the realm of olive oil and there's a reason why certain regions are famous for it.

Jun 5, 2014  |   Contributor: Vicki Arkoff

When temperatures rise, eating light and fresh is the secret to joyful summer dining. Gazpacho (chilled vegetable soup) is a seasonal staple of innumerable restaurants and home kitchens, particularly those in hot Mediterranean and desert climates. Though tomato is usually the predominant flavor, no two gazpachos are exactly alike, largely because each preparation is reliant on the availability of ripe ingredients at the peak of their flavor.

Award-Winning Chef & Author Normand Laprise Dishes On New Quebec Gastronomy Restaurant

Apr 27, 2014  |   Contributor: Janice Nieder

Interesting — and a little sad in this day and age — to note that she was the only local female chef that participated in the gourmet event.
