Where can I buy couverture chocolate in Toronto?

I love the advent calendar that CHOW is running and want to try making the chocolate covered caramels. I also want to use good chocolate, and according to the recipe they suggest couverture. But I'm having a hard time finding it so far.

I work at Yonge & College and live at Lansdowne & Bloor. Any suggestions for places around these areas? I tried the Nuthouse and they did have some Belgian baking chocolate but wasn't sure if that's the same thing or similar (I don't think it is).

Thanks!

Warm Spinach Salad with Smoky Pecans and Sweet Potato

I bought sweet potato that was white inside and it was really nice in this salad. I also used fewer pecans and substituted shallot for green onion, only because I couldn't find a shallot at my grocery store. Anyhow, it was a little makeshift but it was delicious! I especially like the vinaigrette. Yum!
