wow! its already february! can anyone tell me where january went?!
we've started 2011 with a bang and already have had lots of exciting events and classes since we re-opened after a short break between the holidays. pies, breads and duck has been a major component of january.
february means winterlude for ottawa. now that winter has officially arrived, and the canal has finally frozen over, thousands of people will take to the festivities and culinary events happening over the next few weeks. as part of taste of winterlude we're thrilled to be hosting stratus wines and stone road grille from niagara-on-the-lake for a spectacular wine dinner next week.
stay tuned for a few new faces on the blog this year. i'd like to provide a bit more visual perspective from the kitchen with the camera - and we have some foodie friends who will be sharing their up close and personal urban element experiences with us.
in the meantime i'll be hibernating with a hot mug of chocolate (my ode to valentines day) fingers crossed that my reservation for the CABANE À SUCRE comes through this year.
already dreaming of maple.....
