Let Them Eat Winter

“There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”
– George Bernard Shaw, playwright
“Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food.”
– Hippocrates, the Father of Medicine
“Food is an important part of a balanced diet.”
– Fran Lebowitz, author
– MF Doom, rapper
As eloquent as the above quotes are, the truest expression of undying food-love is – and always will be – the passionate act of eating. To eat is to experience; to experience is to live. With each taste a unique exchange of ideas and sensations, eating is society’s most sophisticated art, and yet also our most primitive fulfillment. There is a dish for every occasion, and an occasion for every dish. In this, the harshest season of the year, there is Winterlicious.

For either lunch or dinner (but not linner or dunch), the posh restaurants serve an appetizer, main course, and dessert for $10-30. A part of the Toronto’s WinterCity, Winterlicious is the city’s way of supporting the local restaurant industry while also appeasing the booming foodie population. The event runs from Jan. 28 – Feb. 10, 2005. Make reservations starting this Thursday, Jan. 13, before all the spots are eaten up.
