FOOD TV— Antonio Park has been in Toronto all week to shoot scenes for the next season of Chopped Canada. One of the first orders of business: catch up with old chef pals.
AWARDS SEASON— In a somewhat hazy address that runs over 2,700 words long, the co-founder of Vacay.ca confronts some of the debate over the website's recent list of the best restaurants in Canada: "When I'm in Montreal this summer, [Dave] McMillan and I will have a Foie Gras Summit where we aim to determine how best to honour the nation's food scene. One thing I think he and I will agree on is a Lifetime Achievement Award that praises the likes of [Martin] Picard and [Michael] Stadtlander. I also have in mind a special and fitting honour for Picard that we'll keep under wraps for now." [Vacay.ca]
