The Greatest Pizza Ever Created

Every now and again the universe conspires to create a combination so epic, it defies the laws of physics and creates a black hole of pure awesome. Peanut butter and jelly, centaurs, K Fed and Brittney…the world is full of these wonderous amalgamations. So it came to pass last week during a humble pizza and wine […] Continue reading

La vie en Rosé.

Perhaps it is the unseasonably warm weather we are having here in Calgary, but today something deep inside the recesses of my normally inactive mind was screaming Rosé.  Any time I hear voices in my mind, I bow to them, it’s the only way to shut them up.  So Rosé it was!

[…] Continue reading

Taste the Rainbow…it’s epic!

Since opening in its quaint and cozy 1st Street SW location over a year ago, Taste restaurant has been one of my favourite spots in Calgary to stop by for a tipple and a bite. Taste has nailed the concept of reasonably priced, delicious small bites with Chef Shawn Greenwood’s culinary creations. Their wine list, […] Continue reading
