77 Adelaide St. W., Toronto. 416-862-7337. Dinner for two with wine, tax and tip, $175.
At the turn of the century, when Reds opened in First Canadian Place, I wrote the following in this space: "Reds opened exactly one month ago, and became almost instantly sold out. What does that tell us about young financiers and where they wear their taste buds? (Kinda low for salivary glands . . .) ...

New or old relationship, sometimes the best dates have one thing in common: distraction. one date can centre on food and drink but involve more than just eating. Cooking classes are one perfect example. Cookshop (555 West 12th Avenue, www.cookshop.ca/) offers one whole calendar of culinary ...

In Praise of Amateurs
Post on 06-02-2007.
In South Africa, therefore-called 'professionals' and wine insiders often seek to put wine amateurs down and the result is as clear as the unsold bottle of Shiraz on the shelf, writes Neil Pendock.
