  1. Steven Shaw

    My heart goes out to Ellen and PJ. This is so shocking and unexpected. We worked together for a long time and he was a dynamic and driving force behind eG. So very sad.
  2. Great to see this thread pop back up. We gave up our RV a few years ago when we bought the cottage, but as we are nearing retirement, we have started looking at 5th wheels. In the meantime, i'll follow along with Smithy. Great meals!
  3. It is so great to be in Oakville for a few days, and even better to be able to once more, be part of the Ladies Who Lunch! Thanks Anna and Kerry for a fabulous day, a great lunch and some great shopping. I even found something that will work great at the cottage!
  4. Toaster Ovens

    I have two of the Breville XL ovens. One at home and one at the cottage. The one at the cottage is going on 4 years, no problems. The one at the house is coming up two years and I use it quite a bit since I have only one oven here. No problems.
  5. When I was testing for Twenty, Michael wanted me to do a french onion soup with water. I thought he was crazy because I've always used stock. The results from using water just totally blew me away. it was a much lighter, clean tasting soup than I ever expected. French onion soup can be heavy when stock is used. This soup had all of the flavour and none of the heaviness.
  6. with lots of cracked black pepper
  7. One era ends, and a new one begins

    Steven, thanks for the years of service and fun. I always enjoyed working with you. Good luck on your next adventure!
  8. Kerry, what rum are you looking for? If there are any at the Bracebridge or Gravenhurst LCBO's I could pick them up for you.
  9. And that is more or less how Jake and I met through egullet (jake also being a girl), and we've been best friends ever since. And I miss you guys. Wish I was closer to the Island.
  10. When we were in Vegas a couple of weeks ago, we discovered Casa di Amore way off strip. They'll even pick you up in their limo and take you there and back if you call them and request it. The food was amazing. And Vic and Anthony's in the Golden Nugget,down on Freemont , has one of the best steaks I've ever had in Vegas.
  11. Ribs in the oven

    If I don't do ribs and kraut in the oven, this is the recipe I go to most for bbq'd ribs in the oven Sticky oven ribs
  12. Berkshire Hogs, Kobe Pork?

    What cuts is she sending you? Berkshire pork is amazing and tender and flavourful!
  13. I'm so not going to ask how you got that stuff across the border! I miss Oakville and you guys. This summer, I'm coming down for lunch. Or you can come to the cottage. And Kerry, if you make that spread, please pass along how you did it!
  14. Thanks! I have his cookbook and I met him once at a Gourmet event. We're going back to Vegas in April and thought we might try Central for dinner one night.
  15. What about Michel Richard's restaurant in Caesar's Palace, Central. Is it any good?
