    Canadian Stuart McLean passed a way last week, a true Canadian treasure. If you have never listened to his show on CBC, or NPR, you need to.

    In an age of anger, Stuart wrote and speaks with heart, and gentleness, not to mention his stories are incredibly funny.

    I'll be posting some of the available work as I find them to help others out there appreciate this brilliant human being's work.

    The wrong number SMS had my attention, but the chemist directions reminds me of the following version of the age old Christmas carol, which relates to the famous (or infamous) UK age old 'cure-all' and laxative, Beechams Powders:

    "Hark the Herald Angels sing,
    Beechams is the very thing,
    Peace on earth and mercy mild,
    Two for an adult, one for a child."

    "If you want to go to heaven,
    Take three, four, five, six or seven,
    If you want to go to hell,
    Take the whole damned box as well,
    If you want to go to hell,

    I was born and raised in New England. Then my father moved us out to California when I was almost 17. I had the wrong clothes, and the wrong accent! Thick Bostonian accent that still makes me smile today when I hear it. I've lost most of the accent now (37 years in California) but once in awhile it still comes out in certain words, and locals ask me where I was born. :) Thanks for sharing and giving me some good memories of home.

    This was highly entertaining! When I moved into my new home in Shanghai last year, first thing my wife blurted out was "Bad Feng Shui! The toilet is facing the bedroom!". It might well be bad Feng Shui, but it sure comes in useful after a night of Sichuan food.

    Hilarious! Maybe I can skip the statue and put green cellophane around my technology screens.... that has got to 'work'

    Congrats on acting accordingly, @Pedro Casanova! That is the common denominator.

    Bon Appetite. Of Course, That’s If You Know What You’re Eating!Last week I was invited to lunch by a former client to one the city's more 'fashionable' restaurants. The experience convinced me that these eateries compete with each other in crafting their menus, to the point where the...

    Well done (no pun intended. Well, ok, maybe a little...) Paul! I am glad to hear that you did not make the mistake of sending the meal back to the kitchen. Having worked in a restaurant as a kid, I've witnessed all kinds of unspeakable atrocities perpetrated against the food of picky diners.

    Greatpost!

    "The delicate parchment pages of the menu were no doubt hand crafted from Nile bulrush stems, rolled flat on the thighs of Egyptian virgins." I sat drinking my morning coffee laughing right out loud while my kids and wife watched me with curiosity - I am not given to laughing out loud at breakfast. Cracked me up completely @Paul Walters On behalf of my family, thanks for getting the day off to a bright start. Now I am off to Loblaws to suss out some hummingbirds!

    It appears @Paul Walters that you got your full share of the 'ambiance' which is what you really paid for. I've eaten in fine establishments like this... once. Give me a patio near water any time.

    Great review! It's the first time that I read a restaurant review with this sense of humor, of course no one would ever visit that place anymore... or would they? Maybe you made people more curious. Anyway it is great to read such a entertaining buzz

    #2 I do not crave nouvelle cuisine or molecular gastronomy, but I do crave a cassoulet served in a large clay dish, or a huge pot of bouillabaisse, or a nice confit de canard, or a risotto con Parmigiano-Reggiano served in the wheel. Give me a dollop over a delicately hand plated meal any day.

    Fun article @Paul Walters. I myself have scowled at the introduction of 'foam' and 'deconstructed' meals. However, that all said the fact that chefs take pride in the visual element of your meal shouldn't really come as a shock. Unbeknown to most consumers the eating experience really is gauged as much smell and visual as it is taste. Presentation is a huge part of our food and drink culture and I see little harm in it regardless of the size of the meal... Well unless it's foam....

    "The titillation turned out to be a minuscule scallop diligently performing backstroke in a shallow puddle of colourful jus, topped with a 'crafted' sprig of something green." - "A brace of Bolivian humming birds, flash seared and arranged playfully on a bed of wilted Laotian high mountain grass, drizzled with a hint of larks vomit," Classic Walters!

    Jim, I can imagine the witch Hubble behind the counter cackling, cracking her bony fingers and saying "When shall we three meet again", while sister Bubble toils without trouble in the back.
    As you two agree with Oscar Wilde when he said "I can resist everything but temptation"

    #16 Hi Claire... The NY State Fair offers up all kinds of unusual chow. One vendor that gets lots of free publicity on the local news serves bacon cheeseburgers on a split glazed donut rather than a bun. I believe that their booth is located directly adjacent to a First-Aid station...

    @Jim Murray there are lots of unusual delicious foods to try here in SA. Vetkoeks can be very greasy, so it's important to find a good chef! Other culinary delights include Koeksisters (literally Cook Sisters) which are plaited doughnut pieces deep fried and soaked in sugar syrup. Delicious! There are lots of South African enclaves in parts of London like Wimbledon where you can buy these (and more delights) and also indulge in biltong (our version of beef jerky which melts in your mouth) and boervors (farm sausage of beef and/or lamb with spices including coriander that is sold (and cooked over a fire) in thick spirals. Perhaps there are a bunch of South Africans who have brought a taste of home near you?

    #16 I've never seen anything like that other than sausage rolls over here, @Claire 🐝 Cardwell. But it sounds like something I would try for sure.

    #15 @ Todd Jones: I think that they are cooked in pure vegetable oil as opposed to beef tallow. Evidiently sugar is a vegan thing as well as chocolate, which there is a lot of in these hulks.They are literaly twice as big as any regular donut.

    #15 They have fried dough balls here in SA @Todd Jones called Vetkoeks (literally Fat Cakes in SA) and they often have a mince beef filling. The consistency is very doughnut like and they can be very tasty. They have to be eaten fresh though.

    30/01/2017 #15 Todd Jones
    Just curious Jim... aren't all donuts vegan? I have no idea how donuts are made, but that never stops me from wolfing them down. By the way, if you happen to run across a meat donut shop in your new city, alert me immediately. I will pay you to send me a box before Trump bans them.

    Apple fritters were a revelation to my younger self when I first hit North America. I remember wandering around Toronto airport looking for a dealer as I waited for a flight back to Scotland. A fresh fritter feels quite moreish.

    #5 Sage advice. I am having coffee with Randy Diplock on Thursday in Burlington. I suggested Coffee Culture on Brant just above the Lakeshore, since I have to go pick up a chair at La-z-Boy.
