Dahlia on Daybreak: The Holidays, Ceviche, Choripan, Charcuterie, and a Lightning Round

Hello readers/friends/listeners! As I explained last week, I recently received the clips from my last three segments on CBC Montreal Daybreak. The column I've got for you today was holiday-themed, so it's coming to you a little late, but any time of year is a good time to learn about tangy and delicious dinner ideas like ceviche and choripan. … Continue reading Dahlia on Daybreak: The Holidays, Ceviche, Choripan, Charcuterie, and a Lightning Round

Coffee Blondies That Will Improve Any Situation on Earth

I got the flu last week. In a matter of hours, the little scratch in my throat turned into pain, and my whole body became achy, worse than if I'd run a marathon (probably- I assure you, I've never run a marathon). It hurt to do anything, and I was coughing, chilly and miserable. I felt … Continue reading Coffee Blondies That Will Improve Any Situation on Earth

Au Pied de Cochon, a Montreal Food-Lover’s Rite of Passage

Last month, I went to Au Pied de Cochon with three of my friends. It was a foodie pilgrimage that was a long time coming- my wonderful friend Zoë and I had been talking about going ever since we were in Rez in 2011. We had a carefully-crafted plan that involved going in a group, … Continue reading Au Pied de Cochon, a Montreal Food-Lover’s Rite of Passage

Le Bremner: Unforgettably Delicious, Unbelievably Fun

When an opportunity to meet and hang out with Chuck Hughes falls in to your lap, you take it. When you mention that you've been dying to go to one of his restaurants, and he says "come by Le Bremner some time, don't worry about it!" YOU GO. At Le Bremner yesterday evening, I spent over two … Continue reading Le Bremner: Unforgettably Delicious, Unbelievably Fun

Chuck Hughes and Tomato Pie, a 10/10 Afternoon

Friday was a little bit surreal. I left work early, went home and made a quick omelette, and then ran to the metro. I took the Orange Line from Sherbrooke all the way up to Montmorency, and then hopped onto the bus that Google Maps had told me to hop onto. I spoke with the bus … Continue reading Chuck Hughes and Tomato Pie, a 10/10 Afternoon

Guest Post: The Joy of (not) Cooking and Baking Instead

My dear friend Julianna is the best baker I know, and she’s as generous as she is talented. Every baked good she makes gets devoured in minutes, equally because it’s so delicious and because of how many friends she’s always sharing with. Pumpkin brownies, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies, pies, cakes, brownies, banana chocolate chip … Continue reading Guest Post: The Joy of (not) Cooking and Baking Instead

Hi Again + Dahlia on the Radio: Birthdays, Meal Planning, Cheese Boxes, and a Lightning Round

This is the huge charcuterie and cheese platter served as a warm-up for the literally enormous, nigh irresponsible amount of food we had at (Canadian!) thanksgiving last month. Hi, Chew on This friends!  I've been extremely MIA all through October because of things like birthdays, job changes, visitors, a weekend away, thanksgiving, and a Life Curveball or … Continue reading Hi Again + Dahlia on the Radio: Birthdays, Meal Planning, Cheese Boxes, and a Lightning Round

Chicken Thighs, Mexican Food, and a Lightning Round

Hello wonderful readers! As some of you know, I'm this season's Food and Drink radio columnist at CBC Montreal Daybreak. It's a gig that pretty much fell into my lap and I am so, so grateful for it. It's really a blast. Here's my most recent segment, aired on October 3rd. I hope you enjoy … Continue reading Chicken Thighs, Mexican Food, and a Lightning Round

Barcelona Bar Espresso: An Interview

Barcelona Bar Espresso opened in late July, and if you live in the Plateau, you’ve definitely noticed it. It’s bright red on the outside, warm and inviting on the inside, and, most excitingly for me, it’s Barcelona-themed. Hoo boy, do I ever LOVE Barcelona. I’m in the middle of a super-long, very cheesy post about … Continue reading Barcelona Bar Espresso: An Interview
