    When you think about where to find a great slice of pizza in Toronto, you probably envision College Street’s “Little Italy” or, if your tastes are a little more pedestrian, your corner Pizza Pizza. If you wouldn’t have selected “Little Jamaica” in the fantasy round of a Levar Burton-hosted Jeopardy, boy do I have a surprise for you! Toronto’s first-ever Caribbean-themed pizzeria is launching soon on Eglinton West and if you ever wanted to know what Jerk chicken would taste like on a slice of ‘za, here’s your chance to explore.

    Searching for Jamaican recipes became especially popular during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown as people sought comfort by replicating homestyle island cooking or just went looking for something different to make for dinner! Lots of people turned to Jamaicans.com, a popular Jamaican community platform that has over 400 recipes for authentic Jamaican dishes. Here are the top 12 recipes most downloaded by Jamaican food lovers in Canada.

    Are you missing the tantalizing flavours of the Caribbean?

    Who doesn’t love fried chicken? Fried chicken, rice and peas with coleslaw was a constant for me growing up. Yet, it can be too much work with a lot of wasted oil. Enter: oven-fried chicken. You can save time, oil and your commitment to healthy eating with this recipe. This recipe works whether you are gluten-friendly or gluten-free.

    Just in case you missed our Instagram Live with Chef Philman, and hosted by Ryan Hinkson (Eat Famous), here's the recipe straight from Chef's kitchen!

    For Teneile Warren, good food has always been more than just what is served on the table.

    Christopher Sealy is not a glass half full kind of guy. After diving head first into French language and literature, and spending 2 years as both a cultural observer and participant of Parisian life, he went back home to Toronto inspired to become a sommelier. 

    When you hear the name Young Animal, food is probably the last thing that comes to mind. But Adisa Glasgow - owner of this restaurant with a controversial name, is all about the food, serving up traditional Trini street fare with French and Italian twists.

    Before he went to culinary school, Chef Kwame O Afriyie Nsafoah had no dreams of becoming a chef. It’s not that he couldn't cook. In fact he was and is a great cook. It's a skill he picked up mostly from his mother, who was always cooking.
