On this episode of the Food About Town podcast, my wife Carrie Lindstrom from Crazdude Art and Design made the long walk over to the studio to talk about our trip to Toronto on the coldest day of the year! We jammed in an absolute ton of food and drink experiences over a few short hours and we recapped our whirlwind trip here on the podcast.
This is the fifth episode of my goal to release a new episode every week of 2018. Just finished up a new recording last night to keep the queue chock full of new content for everyone!

We got into town right after lunch time on a Saturday and got right to it. Our agenda is below but all the details can be found if you listen to us recount all the layers we were wearing and all the adventures we had on a true 0°F day in a fantastic city.

Bellwoods Brewery – went to the take out spot next to the brewpub for Jelly King Regular and Blood Orange, Roman Candle and Monogamy Simcoe
Bar Raval – Spanish pinxtos bar, grilled octopus/potatoes/paprika/olive oil, snails/mushrooms/bacon/butter, tomato bread, sherry
Grey Gardens – Jen Agg owned restaurant, Spanish orange wine, German riesling, smoked fish dip/chips, seabass crudo/turnip puree/ crispy leeks/dill, great enviornment
The Black Hoof – Jen Agg cocktail and neighborhood restaurant, horse tartare was perfectly balanced and textured, comfortable
Left Field Brewery – grabbed a flight (hibiscus and raspberry gose, Sweet Jesus mocha and marshmallow stout and a general good variety) and some cans and bottles to bring back, great local beer spot
