Restaurant that serves T-Bones in YEG

Violino has a huge T-bone steak for two on their menu "Bistecca alla Fiorentina" . No idea if their beef is AB beef.

Looking for the name/recipe of a Cuban eggplant dish

Could it have been berenjenas rebozadas?(eggplant slices lightly breaded and fried) or "guiso de berenjenas?(eggplant stew)

My grandma used to make eggplant (which is not a vegetable widely used in Cuban cuisine) in a stew.

Gordon Ramsay Ultimate Cookery Course on Channel 4

I had never watched Hell's Kitchen or Kitchen Nightmares or any other "reality tv" cooking show, so I started watching this show with fresh eyes and unbiased by Gordon Ramsay's personality. I love this show, I started taping it, I'm considering buying the book and making some of the recipes, especially the chicken bastilla which I've always wanted to make. I love cooking but I'm a novice cook (not young just I was never interested in cooking before) so Gordon's step by step instructions, his skills tips and advice are perfect for me. I do not find him patronizing, but again like I said, I'm not biased by his personality. I've watched now videos on youtube and I see how he can be on other tv shows, so I'm lucky that this is my first exposure to him and so was able to truly enjoy this show.
Ps: I also find him attractive, what's wrong with me? lol

Heat diffuser for cazuela?

I'm in Edmonton, but if you don't live here and know a general store where I can find a heat diffuser to use with my electric stove, I'd appreciate it.
I've bought some clay spanish cazuelas, and I've been reading on how to use them on the stove and it was recommended the use of a heat diffuser. I haven't seen one in the stores I usually go to. Anyone can help,please?

How We Learned to Love the Pressure Cooker

I'm Cuban and we use our pressure cooker a lot. In fact, it was one of the few things I brought with me to Canada when I left home. Cuban congri, white rice, all kinds of beans, stew, I use my pressure cooker about 3 times a week. I'd like to buy a new smaller one, I'll look into that French brand mentioned in the comments.

Paella rice

I know arborio is not for paella,I've bought bomba rice at the italian centre. I don't know if they always stock it but I've bought it there about 4 or 5 times.
I just checked my cupboard, the one I got from the italian centre is from Spain, brand is Arroz Bomba La Fallera.
