    About Me

    Photo of my crazed brother taken at a wedding at "The Doctor's House" in Kleinburg, Ontario. He and the statue did not get along very well..she was terribly rude!

    Formerly from the highlands of Scotland and residing in Toronto with wee Angus, my transwestite.

    The incessant whining I endure when performing the morning makeup ritual leads me to believe he has a thing for eyeliner.

    When the working part of the day is over I find myself body thrashing at the gym or writing bizarre poetry and plays. I was involved in theatre for many years but our company folded when we lost our theatre. (Where did it go?)

    Favorite Foods

    The Apple of Love (tomato) is a favourite of mine - I could give you the Forest Gump version of what can actually be done with them so I'll just leave it.

    Uisge beatha, "water of life" - Scotch whiskey, wine, sherry, brandy, et al, are all welcome ingredients in my kitchen.

    A friend gave me a cookbook years ago called "Trattoria" by Patricia Wells. The recipes are incredibly simple yet just lovely. Patricia's French "Bistro Cooking" offers succulent dishes to get us through the cold Canadian autumn and winter months. See Patricia's website at www.patriciawells.com. A very talented woman, she lives in Provence and Paris offering cooking classes to students of gastronomic study from all over the world. I dream of flying off to France and spending time with her...to learn and cook.

    My absolute favourites are French, Italian, Indian and Middle Eastern dishes. A good British fry-up is a great Sunday morning comfort feast; sausage, black pudding, egg, tomato and mushrooms with tea and toast. Heart attack city but you must allow yourself the occasional indulgence, especially if you're watching Coronation Street while enjoying your breakfast.

    For those chefs familiar with Toronto, there is a wonderful little French bistro called La Maison Benoit on Avenue Road north of Lawrence Avenue. Another fav is Messis on Harbord Street. They do an amazing job of pairing unusal ingredients i.e.) seared scallops with beet juice risotto and grilled veg. Although I do not have a sweet tooth, they make the most amazing Crème Brule. On my last visit they served a brule infused with fresh ginger. OMG!

    I miss my Zaar buddy Mille®, what a dreadful loss; a fellow Scot, a rebel and an amazing wit! Cheers Chappie...the Oor Wullie icon is a nod to you!
