LAUNCH | Buonanotte Supper Club

We were treated to a special tasting of a Summer Menu at Ristorante Buonanotte in the heart of Toronto's entertainment district.  It is actually located in a quiet street off John St, and Wellington St., which is why I've never heard or seen it, even though I wok 5 minutes away.  I didn't really know what to expect for dinner as I did some research beforehand and there were a lot of disappointing reviews about this place.  But, I went with an open mind as it would be my first time dining there!

WORKSHOP | Minute Rice Instant - an understated ingredient for creative, family-friendly meals

Using anything "instant" or "frozen" is pretty much the biggest faux pas in the culinary world where fresh is always better and while we agree, we can't always follow that rule when we are so busy with our everyday jobs.

Luckily for us, Chef John Higgins, Director of the George Brown Chef School showed us how to elevate Minute Rice to the next level to create some pretty fantastic dishes (dessert included!)
