SALVIO VOLPE - BEST DAMN TIRAMISU


Salvio Volpe

So this town has been in an ice cream kick over the past few years and we have been lucky to have a myriad of options available to us from fancy soft serve, to vegan to liquid nitrogen spots.   We have tried them all, and while we love them all sometimes you get tired of waiting in line, or listen to the maestro talk to your friends about how great he is.   

Salvio Volpe has a tiramisu that I need to tell you all about.   Beta 5 ice cream, marsala, hazelnuts and rum soaked cake.   I had to borrow the photo from their twitter as I forgot to take one when this thing came out.   Go try this dessert and have your mind blown.

LEELOODLES

Lee Loodles
Got to give respect to kid entrepreneurs and got to give respect to parents that support their kid's business or creativity. The website explains "Leeloodles is a new summer venture by Leeloominai Monleon, aka Leeloo, an aspiring 8 year old artist from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Supported by her parents; The Mommager - Diana and The Dadvertiser - Ryne. Leeloo started off by making shirts as gifts to her family and friends. The demand started pouring in from strangers, when they would spot her work being worn on the streets.

The Akira shirt caught my eye as it is not your typically movie watch list for an eight year old.  Peep the Akira shirt above and the website at the following link - LeeLoodles.com

OSTERIA FRANCESCANA RATED AS THE WORLD'S BEST RESTAURANT 2016

Osteria Francescana is rated as the world's best restaurant in 2016.   Historically, they have always placed around third place and now they we're permanent one.

I was lucky enough to visit this restaurant a few years back and it was an interesting experience.  It is funny when restaurants who strive for 100% perfection have a few errors throughout the night.  Error one, the light above our table was about to go out.   The light flickered repeatedly during our dining experience, making us a little irritated.  Not much they could do at that point as brining in a ladder to change the bulb would have been an eye sore for the restaurant.   Error two, a small insect landed in a glass of wine.   Generally, outside of the restaurant's control however when they took the half consumed glass of wine away and did not replace it.

Other than that the night went as expected.  The tasting menu was thematic and filled with layers of flavours and rich ingredients.   The volley of foie gras at the end was a little too much and it became hard to finish the last few bites despite the small portions.  In the end, a fun experience and something I am happy to say that I have done.
