Hello Toronto

In between meetings with my colleagues at Bon Appetit, co-sponsors of the Festival, I’ll be meeting three Canadian bloggers:  Rob of Hungry in Hogtown; Ivonne of Creams Puff in Venice; and Brilynn of Jumbo Empanadas.  I can’t wait!  It’s going to be so much fun to actually meet and have a tete-a-tete with these ether-friends whose blogs I love.

And about that Canadian still life in the photo –  it’s what greeted me when I got into my room at the Toronto Four Seasons Hotel.  No surprise that the sweets tucked into the maple-syruping bucket were buttery and mapley too: they were leaf-shaped cookies pressed together with maple frosting.  Just what I needed after my flight up had been delayed three hours!
