If you had seen Pig's cheek and tongue on a dinner menu and got excited. Or if you want to try every tasting menu in the city then we should be friends!

I think, like so many others we should have a connection between our food and where it came from. Using every thing from "nose to tail" and all the "nasty bits" forget the tenderloin (unless in a tartar) and lets experiment with sweetbreads on toast! If thatís on your menu I want to be invited!

I just moved back to Ottawa after living on the west coast for 6 years. I love food just as much as you, maybe more and want to be part of a community I can learn from and teach in. I enjoy all foods and want to taste it all. I want to learn new methods and pass on my discoveries. I just want to learn as much as I can. French is what I like cook and every thing else in world is what I like to eat.
