by gigi on November 30, 2011

One sunny Saturday afternoon, Jenkins and I met up with Tricia and Darren for lunch at Verace Pizzeria and Enoteca. We had just been at a wedding and were looking for a bite to eat before heading off to the afternoon events. Darren suggested that we go to Verace since it was fairly close to […]


Montreal: Garde Manger

When I had heard from Vancouver Slop that Mom’s Grilled […]
