We have been wanting to do a cigar episode for a long time, so here's a not so brief overview of one of our favourite after dinner treats.

No matter where you live, there is bound to be a farmer's market near you. Eating locally has never been easier! This episode is about just some of the many prepared food vendors at the Oshawa Center farmer's market.

Green Belt Fresh (Farmer's Market Locator for Ontario) - A Taste of Russia - Kyoto Coffee - Sticklings Bakery -

This week's episode is a book review of Anthony Bourdain's Kitchen Confidential.  It's exploitational, but we can't necessarily say over-exaggerated.  This episode isn't rated as "clean" because the book makes numerous references to alcohol and drug use, as well a informal dalliances with the opposite sex (I think I said that as polite as I possibly could).  An entertaining read from someone who really has been there and done that (probably a few times), Boudain's Kitchen Confidential is the flag ship of restaurant exposés, that have influenced many others to write their own memoirs of how things really are in the kitchens of restaurants.

This is a bit of a pot porri, with a short review about a great Persian place in Oshawa called Cyrus, discussion of french presses, fresh made Naan bread from Indian Biyani in Toronto and how to make a tandoori oven right in your own back yard (please follow all local and fire safety laws!).

This episode is a book review on Waiter Rant by Steve Dublanica.  It took us over 3 sessions to get this episode down, but felt that there were some really great points to discuss about the Western practice of tipping, even if we didn't necessarily always agree with The Waiter.  Thanks for joining us in our first episode back from our July hiatus!  We hope you enjoy it, and continue to listen!
