Seek and Ye Shall Find

I’m Dining Out Here

Prince Edward Island is the best place in the world to come home to, and thousands do it every summer.

For two Island chefs, this summer marks a return to the flavours upon which they honed their craft. For one, the Island will provide a place to raise a family, and to re-explore the flavours he’s raved about for the last decade in other places. For the other

The Beach Bucket List

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Summer is imminent. What was brown is now green. What was cold is now, at very least, luke warm. Clothes are disappearing and smiles are returning. Winter is but a distant, frigid memory. Summer disappeared in early August last year. Sunshine and heat turned to miserable, cold fall far too soon for everyone. But I have confidence history will not repeat itself

Culinary Capital


I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

I hadn’t really been to Quebec before this April. I was there once, briefly, when I was a kid. My dad took a wrong turn in Montreal on a family trip home from Ottawa and we ended up on the north side of the St. Lawrence rather than the south. I suppose we were charmed by the city because we decided to stay the night. We ate at a place called Le Baron Rouge. I
