Stop Being So SHELLFISH! #LobstahPalooza2015 — An Adventure in Atlantic Ambrosia!

On Sunday, September 27th, something’s coming up that you won’t want to miss!

Toronto’s known for its foodie culture, hosting people and their dishes from virtually every corner of the planet, giving our citizens a discerning palate that you just won’t find anywhere else. But because as a diverse city we’re so used to searching across the seven seas for the inspiration that’ll sate our dining desires, we often forget to look within our national borders to see what one of the largest and most diverse countries has to offer!

The preview I had for the upcoming Lobstahpalooza was just that — a cast of friends bringing their skills and resources to the table so they could put the kind of experience together you just don’t see these days!

Little did we know how true that’d be… but I’m getting ahead of myself.

I AM NOT A FOODIE: #SamInHand Has Me Cooking With Sam Adams Beer!

As a guy who rarely cooks, I’m guessing that God’s having none of that and making sure I can actually provide for my family.

Some time ago, I shared the story of my hatred for cooking, sure I’d avoid the kitchen for the rest of my earthbound years. But with daycare nipping hot at the heels of the East York Palmers, and with it the scheduling unpredictability that comes from a family with two working parents, I had to bite the bullet sometime!

So whaddya know — despite being loath for anything finding me in front of a stove, brands like Samuel Adams put their money where their mouth is (and product where mine is), challenging me to grab an apron and see what I can do to feed myself without calling the number for the local pizzeria — and yes, it is on my speed dial.

Everyone, for your viewing pleasure, I present — Cooking With Beer: Because it’s Not Just Good for Drinking!
