I just had lunch at Tundra as part of Summerlicious and have pretty good things to report. My sister and I both had the salad to start (great dressing) - the other choice being a clam chowder as the soup option. She then had the salmon for her main while I had the lamb burger. My choice was probably a mistake for me if only because I don't usually enjoy burgers, but I wanted to try it out and had no complaints. It was a good size and the sweet potatoes that accompanied it had a nice harissa (I think) sauce alongside.

For dessert, she had the rice pudding while I had the mascarpone cheesecake. Both were good but the rice pudding was served in a dish so large that the portion inevitably looked much smaller than it really was. Poor plating decision there but overall, we quite enjoyed the lunch and given that it was our first visit to Tundra, we'd return.

Note that a few of the Summerlicious items are on their regular menu.

Roasted marshmallow alert at Hollywood Gelato

Which grocery stores carry Gelato Fresco? My local Fortinos did until recently and I need to find a replacement source.

Adding herbs to cheese puffs


I have a recipe from a Gay Lea booklet for Cheese Stars. The ingredients are listed below but I would like to add some herbs (oregano, rosemary, etc) to the dough to make it more interesting. Can anyone comment on what kind and how much of the herbs I could add in, and whether I'd need to adjust any of the other ingredients as a results?

1/2 cup (125 ml) GAY LEA Butter (Salted), softened
2-1/2 cups (625 ml) shredded Mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp (25 ml) grated Parmesan or Romano cheese
1-1/2 cups (375 ml) all purpose flour
1/4 tsp (1 ml) each salt and pepper
2 tbsp (25 ml) milk

Thanks in advance

Removing label stickers

I am having trouble removing label stickers from wooden spoons that I recently bought. The sticker itself came off after some effort, but it remains sticky to the touch. Does anyone have any recommendations for how to remove the residue?

Does anyone have any recent reviews of 1055? I've heard conflicting information, so wanted to ask if they are worth going to, have good service and what dishes they do well?

Christmas Night Dinner

I went to Studio Cafe for the first time in the summer (for Summerlicious). This may or may not be reflective of their usual menu, but the meal I had was quite good. The best part was dessert - they had an awesome panna cotta with a lemon grass sauce that I loved.
