Food that Most People Love and You Don't...

Most people like coffee but I can't stand it. Truffles disgust me as does truffle oil. I don't like black licorice but I think a lot of people don't like black licorice.

What to serve with gnocchi

It depends how you cook the gnocchi. If you plan to boil it then you would serve it in a tomato sauce like a pasta. If instead you plan to pan fry it until crispy you can serve it as a side dish as you would serve potatoes. If you pan fry them you could oven roast the chicken pieces and serve a vegetable alongside the chicken and gnocchi. I would probably deglaze the chicken pan with a little white wine and throw in some nice herbs and reduce until you have a nice sauce.

good tasting chocolate Advent Calendar?

Is there such a thing as a chocolate advent calendar that is maybe designed for adults and has chocolate that actually tastes good? If so where do I get it?

What's The One Thing You Can't Eat, even for money.

I would eat anything that was considered a food. I might have a little trouble with an eye ball but I'd still eat it to see what it was like.

Dessert and coffee in London?

I usually find something to fill my sweet cravings at Angelo's. It's more of an upscale grocery store than a cafe but they have a place to sit. I'm not into coffee so I can't speak to that. William's coffee downtown has some nice sweets too but they're awfully pricey in my opinion.

Molecular Gastronomy in London ON?

I don't get out much. Can anyone tell me if any restaurants in London are doing MG. I've heard things about Stratford but there must be someone doing spheres and foams etc locally.

London farmers' markets: Covent Garden or Western Fair?

I know it's probably too late for your visit. Personally my favorite market is the Trails End market on Dundas St east.
