Dessert Lady (12 Cumberland St, Toronto, ON Canada)
Birthday time means cake time! We celebrated three birthdays in one night including my lovely wife, Pat’s. This tiny shop has an amazing selection of desserts and creative cakes. We saw one that is shaped like sushis! Unfortunately, we couldn’t take photos, but trust us, they look amazing! The cake we selected for the night was double chocolate hazelnut butter cream, and it was delicious. Oh ya, they have our favourite, macaroons, in fact 14 different flavours of them; we tried the pistachio and yum yum yum. Cake plus Korean food and Settlers of Catan made a great birthday celebration.

Dinner and a show night

It feels like winter just won’t end. We braved the sudden snow dump (yesterday it was sunny and in the pluses, today 20cm of snow and feels like minus 20), we decided  on Tokyo Kitchen (20 Charles Street East @ Yonge). It was definitely a night for udon (I had the kitsune = fried tofu) and the set dinner with miso soup, salad, teriyaki salmon, 4 pieces sashimi and tempura shrimp and veggies). Dinner about 30 bux for two.

Off to the show! Going to see the world premiere of Arrabal!

Green tea bite sized cakes
I saw a recipe for green tea financiers in the recent nespresso magazine featuring Japan. Not having financier moulds, I used tiny cupcake moulds and ended up with bite sized desserts that frank really liked!

Recipe:
Melt 150g butter in saucepan and simmer until it smells nutty. Remove from heat and cool.
Beat 5 egg whites to lather but not until stiff.
Add  to the eggwhites, 80g icing sugar, 50g flour, 80g powdered almonds (which I skipped cause I didn’t have it), 5g match a green tea, 1tsp liquid honey and pinch of salt.
Mix well then pour melted butter into the mixture through a small strainer. Stir again.
Preheat oven to 180 Celsius.
Pour batter into moulds. Bake 15 to 20 mins.

Lunch at Gilead Café (Gilead Place @ king st east, Toronto)

Good quality ingredients, beautiful presentation, warm neighborhood atmosphere. For a late lunch today, we made our way finally to try out Jamie Kennedy’s Gilead café. We ordered the roast beef sandwich (I didn’t see that there was blue cheese in it, so it was not a nice surprise when I took my first bite. Frank got the smoked whitefish cake which was nice. Lunch for two came to $25.
