David's Tea: Coups de coeur!

En tant que chinoise, je suis une grande amateur de thé.  Pas de café. Pas de coke, pepsi ou qu'importe la liqueur.  Je suis accro au thé. J'ai grandi avec une théière sur la table à diner. Je préfère boire du thé le samedi soir à la place d'alcool avant de sortir (oui, je me fais vieille, c'est triste).  Mes soirées d'études étaient tellement plus motivantes avec une tasse de thé. Me love tea!

You can make your life sweeter!!! Let's flavor trip with miracle berry!

 Yes! It exists! A magical little berry that gives a sweet taste to unexpected food! What?!? What do you? How do you? Why would you? Yeah, I know, it sounds like a crazy drug doesn't it? My mom really thought that I was going to a party full of drug hippies when I told her about it.  Especially because it is called a Flavor Tripping Party... No no mom, i am just exploring the science of a fruit! It is a study case for my blog! Ha... no credibility at all!

5 à 7 dans un pub japonais? Hell yeah!

Montréal commence définitivement à s'armer de multiples bars japonais ou encore isakayas. Tel qu'expliqué dans mon article de Kazu, les isakayas sont des destinations au Japon dans lesquels on prend une bière, du sake ou les deux combinés ensemble dans un sake bomb, le tout accompagné de petit plats à partager.

Après plusieurs critiques positives de bloggers montréalais par rapport au restaurant Imadake sur Ste-Catherine, et bien voilà! Vous avez piqué ma curiosité! Il est temps que je vienne rendre une visite à ce isakaya.  Je vous avertis, je ne suis pas une grande experte des plats japonais mais mon dieu que je tombe en amour à toutes les fois que j'en mange! Simple, joli et explosant de saveurs!

Grocery Edition: New product - PC Rip and Dip Pizza


''Bringing pizzazz back to pizza night, President’s Choice Rip & Dip Pizza is fun and delicious – easy to pull apart in pieces and dunk into the accompanying creamy dip. ''

Remember a few years ago, Mikes served a pizza in which you can tear off the crust to dip in sauces? Well, Private label from Loblaws, President Choice came up with a similar idea but applied it to the entire pizza. The concept is great indeed. No need of a knife, you eat with your hand and you complement each bite size with the provided sauce.  They have two flavors: Pepperoni and Cheese with Creamy Garlic and Marinara dipping sauce respectively.

Grocery Special Edition

Hi peeps!

What brought me to my choice of field of study is the continuous addition of new products on the shelves of our groceries.  I have always been intrigued by all of the innovations, new flavors, new way to cook or to present food on our dinner table.  You guys remember green ketchup? to add fun in the of your kids? Why did it not last? Why did they thought of launching such a weird idea?

Thus, I decided to start a special edition in my blog covering different aspects in the groceries of our area.  Studying Food Chemistry and working in the industry makes my view a little different from the general public.  I will be reviewing different new products as some of them may sound creative and genius while others are plainly funny.  I will also cover different marketing scams on the labels that are meant to attract customers to buy their products.  Other topics such as private labels and ambience music and scent in grocery stores will be covered.  These articles will be short and sweet. Hope you guys will like it! Feel free to give me any suggestions or comments!
