Happy Thanksgiving, Fellow Canadians!

This week's episode covers another installment of Oishimbo (this time an overview of Japanese cuisine), and reviews of a local Italian bakery and the Moon Festival offerings of Mandarin Buffet (pictures coming of the later as soon as they're off Tracy's phone).

We like to think of ourselves as being culinary adventurous, but travel costs a lot of money, so until we get a radio or TV show we have to make due with the magic of books to transport us to exotic edibles and forbidden foods.  Tom's book (believe us, Mr. Bowles, it's better we refer to you informally in the show so we'll stop butchering your last name) is just the ticket to reading about dishes that you could only imagine yourself eating (or not eating).

Never play cards with a man called Doc. Never eat at a place called Mom’s. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.” -- Nelson Algren, A Walk on The Wild Side (1956)

In this week's episode, we discuss a hidden gem called Momma's that brings the lunch counter back to the present and into a mall! We also have sad news regarding Pete's Open Kitchen (which we really hope is reversed), and some info about the next episode, which will be recorded this week with a special guest. ;)

For your viewing pleasure, two semi-related videos:

We spent a year in Orillia and found a TONNE of great places to eat for such a small town. Here's our homage to Orillia, with all the places that we didn't get only found the last few months, the places we didn't get a chance to try and the places we went to all the time but didn't really fit into any other shows.

We devote this episode to two hidden gems of Orillia, ON!  These places seem to have small but very loyal followings - you might miss them because they're a bit off the beaten path even though they're right downtown.  If you find yourself in Orillia, check out Tre Sorelle and Filou Bistro!  Check out more photos here:
