How To Chose A Restaurant In Toronto (Or Anywhere Else)

and surely "sustainable" is more than a fool's ideology. More a responsibility.

How To Chose A Restaurant In Toronto (Or Anywhere Else)

there has been a move towards these across the board in London also because people enjoy the variety, sharing different dishes and not necessarily having one large main course.

Not entirely about food

There is a Wh Smith in the station http://stpancras.com/shop

If you were invited to a birthday party (for someone else) on the day of your birthday... what would be a nice touch for you?

I guess then in a way you are celebrating, just not with others as you say. I just invite people to a meal, drinks, or other fun thing to do and then those who want to come do. As much as because it is fun to get together as for anything else.

I'd acknowledge them too - but I would ask first discreetly whether they would mind if I included them in the toast - something like that so that they would have a chance to say if they really didn't want it. I'd at least get them a birthday card also.

This. Why not take the opportunity to celebrate. A day of fun, especially with friends or loved ones is so much better than a day spending ignoring the fact you are getting older!

Heavy whipping cream substitute...

Maybe try the English style scone? We don't use cream in the recipe, only to serve with them.

Soup ideas to use up close-to-use-by-date vegetables?

leek and courgette and potato: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/in... then roast the peppers and toms as a side?

Does this recipe make sense?

As Tampagul says, you are adding flour so it will be sturdier. However the pic also shows a fairly soft base. You could always try something like this otherwise http://www.cinnamonspiceandeverything...

how to season fish

Always best to buy sustainable fish or at least the less at threat from over fishing. So for now pollock is better. I like to marinate fish in miso paste, sugar, mirin and soy and then grill.

Lunch around Kings Cross

At KX you've got fancy at GS http://www.thegilbertscott.co.uk/rest... or more casual at The Harrison pub http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Restaura... (note I haven't been but the reviews are good

)

Westminster is a large area so you'd have to narrow it down really.

Japanese Ramen: Is it a Hype?

I'd call these kind of things a fad, rather than hype. Perhaps, yes as it is fashionable right now and therefore these places increase in number. When the fashion fades you tend to be left with the good ones and the pop-ups move onto something else.

What to serve with wild boar ragu?

I'd serve a side salad with some punchy, peppery leaves but keep it simple. All it really needs as a side is chianti :)

Smithfield isn't especially close to kings cross. I second. Gilbert Scott or Plum and split milk perhaps.

When do you eat your salad?

I am. I do travel quite a lot though and have never experienced it at the end of a meal.

Where in Europe eat in after the main course? *looks around*. Salad is with the main unless a more complex salad *is* the main or starter.

Supermarket music

Over here in the UK, "ASDA" (Walmart) has its own in-store radio station. Quite cheerful really.
