Cotenna: A New York gem!

About 2 months ago, Andrew and I went on a spur of the moment trip to New York – well, it really was a work trip for him, but a proper trip gorge-and-stuff-myself-silly trip for me!  I had only booked my ticket 2 days before heading off, so I didn’t get a chance to do…

Vancouver Edition: Basalt Wine + Salumeria

When I was in Whistler a few months ago for my stagette, one of the places that we thought about going to was Basalt Wine + Salumeria.  Perfect for any cheese lover, this place has a wide variety of wine and cheese, plus a full menu for both lunch and dinner.  I was really looking…

Vancouver Edition: Au Petit Café, the best banh mi in town!

After living in London for a while, I really had a hankering for a good banh mi and Andrew brought me to a place that was always busy and bustling with people.  The bread was cold, the fillings were skimpy, and it just didn’t hit the spot.  While everyone else seemed to enjoy it, I…
