Food Column: Elton on Local Fish

It's harvest season in Ontario. At the farmers' market there's the full bounty of greens, squash, carrots and more. Of course, it's Thanksgiving weekend when we will give thanks for the harvest. Our food columnist Sarah Elton is in today to tell us about a local food that many of us don't often think about when we list what our province has to offer. That's local, Ontario fish. Sarah stopped by Hooked to speak to co-owner and chef Kristen Donovan about what you can buy from Ontario. You can find Hooked at: 888 Queen Street East or 206 Baldwin Ave in Kensington Market.

Food Column: Elton On Bread

They call bread the staff of life. In fact, bread has been so central to life that people have written poetry about it. Just as Omar Khayyam once wrote: "A jug of wine, a loaf of bread. And thou beside me in the wilderness." Well, good news for Toronto. We've got bread. And lots of it. An increasing number of artisan bakers are selling their wares in the city. Our food columnist Sarah Elton was in to tell us about what this rise in good bread says about our city. She interviewed Simon Blackwell of the Blackbird Baking Company who makes artisanal breads with wholegrain, unrefined flours that are fermented and leavened with wild yeasts. Blackbird Baking Company: 172 Baldwin Street The bread is sold at a bunch of stores around the city: Sanagan's meat shop Hooked in Leslieville The Harvest Wagon at Yonge and Summerhill Roast Fine Foods on St. Clair West Andrea's Bakeshop on Gerrard at Broadview Lucky Penny on Shaw north of Queen GCB cheese shop on Dundas West.
