Pursue your dreams!

I always knew that I loved to eat ever since I can remember. But boy, was I surprise to see how my childhood was affected by my unconditional love for food! Like I mentioned in my intro, I found a poem that I wrote about food back when I was a kid, precisely in 2001. 

My homework was to write a poem about myself, about how terrific I am at something. Check it out, it just brought a smile to my face reading mini me writing about what I breathe day and night now.

At 14 years old, never would I have thought that I would have pursued studies in Food Science. Never would I have thought that I would be working for a multinational developing new products that everyone could buy at the grocery. Never would I have thought that I would be writing a blog about food! That little me would have had sparkles in her eyes if she knew what is waiting for her. And she would have been so glad that I listen to my desire to pursue my dreams!

La Bouffe de rue à Montréal?!?!

La magie des takoyaki aux Souks Gastronomiques du festival Juste Pour Rire
Oui oui oui oui oui!!!! On sent ce jour approcher de plus en plus! Un jour, dans un futur proche, Montréal pourra se vanter de sa grande gastronomie de rue! Et cela sera beaucoup plus que des hot dogs, des pretzels et des burgers! On pourra y trouver tacos, takoyakis, viande de barbecue longuement braisées, sandwich gourmets, etc.

Park Restaurant - refreshing twist to Japanese cuisine

It is funny when you think that a few years back, sushi was still such a novelty and meant only for those who were adventurous enough to try it.  It has come a long way since then! And there has been quite some improvement and evolution from sushi shops, sushi from grocery stores, from buffet or from all you can eat!  Even though Montreal is not necessarily known for this type of cuisine, there is no doubt that the expertise is growing and ever so rapidly!

And I must say that Park restaurant is ranking quite high in its category.  In a relaxed and cozy atmosphere, Chef Antonio Park wisely pairs unexpected ingredients to surprise his patrons. And the quality of the fish he uses cannot be any fresher. Literally. You'll understand why later. Now, please embark to this sensorial journey with me :)
