POP-UPS— Until he opens his own restaurant, call John Winter Russell the prince of the pop-up. The former Van Horne chef will prepare a Québec/Sicily dinner with Scarpetta chef Monick Gilles on Wednesday, June 25 at the popular Mile End restaurant: "We're taking traditional Sicilian preparations and doing the whole dinner with local ingredients. The flavour profiles on the dishes we've tested are really cool so far. We're also grilling a whole deboned goat for the fourth course. It's going to be awesome." [Wire]
