Leg of lamb?

Does anyone know of a good place where I can buy a leg of lamb? Fairly large to feed about 20 ppl....The only place that I can think of is St. Lawerence, but I'm wondering if anyone's got any better ideas. Location must be downtown...also if you could post how much you paid for it, that'd be great!

2 weeks in Paris to explore


I'm leaving on Saturday from Canada to visit Paris for 2 weeks. I haven't planned anything (work has been busy) and I definitely want to make sure that I fully experience all that Paris has to offer in a gastronomical sense. I'm a big foodie, I want to sample real authentic french food (Toronto doesn't have great French food in my opinion, and the closest thing to French food I've made is French Toast and Fries). Unfortunately I'm on a bit of a budget, so no more than 30 euros for dinner? I'm not really sure how far that gets me. I am adventurous and definately want to try out the off beaten tracks of Paris. Unfortunately, I'll be travelling on my own most of the time and I'm relatively young, so I'd like to steer away from the more pretentious places.

Please help me plan out my culinary adventure!

Porketta seasoning


I'm having a hard time finding porketta seasoning mixes in the downtown area. I usually get it from Loblaws in a little package, but they stock this item infrequently and I've run out. I know I could make it on my own, but I'd like to get a premixed blend. If anyone knows of a store that carries this item, please let me know!

Suggestions for dinner party of 13?

I'm planning a corporate function for 13 guests. Last year we went to the Sultan's Tent which was good because we had dinner and entertainment. This year we want to try something different but still keep the dinner - entertainment factor.

Looking to spend about $65 a head for dinner and the place has to be downtown (near Bay and Wellington area).

The problem is that our available date is on Monday and most entertainment venues don't have any shows ie comedy clubs, mystery dinner etc...I did consider the Turf Lounge, but it's a little beyond our price range.

I'm stumped, so any suggestions are welcomed!
