Kibbeh Nayeh in Toronto?

I haven't tried the food at Zanobia. I went there a few times to smoke the argeleh. I can't remember where the owners are from, I went there a few years ago. I want to say Lebanese, but don't quote me on that.

Valentine's Day 2011

What to do for Valentine's Day in Toronto????

Breaded Chicken Wings

The service is horrible but I don't expect much anyways considering its only a bar. What really turned A few of us off was that there was still feathers on the wings. I'm not talking about a little hair here and there because I know that is unavoidable. I'm talking about an actual feather! We complained and the answer we got from our oh so nice b**** of a waitress was ".. Ya, the feathers don't burn off in the fryer, so...". Dumb B****! Excuse my anger and language. But since when do you eat any animal with the hair still on it?

Breaded Chicken Wings

Sloppy Joes has them. Iv'e been there twice the first time they were amazing. The second time not so much it turned me off that I would never go back. Check it out for yourself!

Where to buy hominy in GTA?

There is canned hominy at The Real Canadian Superstore on Weston Rd. There is dried hominy at a Latin market on the South West corner of Keele and Lawrence.

Niagra Falls Question

You should try Copacabana brazilian steakhouse. It's not your typical steakhouse. Its an all you can eat reastuarant. They have a variety of meats on a spit and waiters come around to your table to serve you. They also have a little buffet area with a variety of sides to go with your meats. To end the meal they have grilled cinnamon pineapple, its amazing!

Christmas Potluck

What to bring to a christmas potluck. I don't want to bring a dessert or appetizer.

Help with Cake recipe

yes, you can make the ganache ahead of time. As long as everything is kept in the fridge it will be fine. Let me know how it turns out!

Help with Cake recipe

No I don't recommend gelatin because it is tricky. I use 35% whipping cream and cover the surface with sifted icing sugar, whip and it's done! (you could also add vanilla extract) I don't sugest using a less fattier whipping cream because it may not whip up.

Oversize Toblerone...anybody?

sorry i was mistaken I thought it was the 1ft not 3ft.

Help with Cake recipe

When I whip cream it always stays intact for a good week. Try whipping to a medium-stiff peak not soft. Are you only using 35% whipping and icing sugar?

No problem! Yes, the cherry filling will be fine but I would not recommend keeping it longer than a week.

Help with Cake recipe

cake - uncut
ganche yes but you have to keep it in the fridge until ready to use and then remelt it.
Whipped cream yes
cherry filling yes!
As long as everything is kept in the fridge it will be fine. It is even best to make the cake and have it sit in the fridge over night. The cake will taste better.
