I am sure you have heard all about the violence, rioting, looting and general criminality surrounding the G8/20 summit this weekend in Toronto. It is very strange to see this going on in Toronto - Canadians are usually peaceful in their protests and even the mayor pointed out the last time there was a violent incident during a protest was 15 years ago. Let's remember the people causing all of the problems in the city right now are anarchists - not protesters.
Everyone has been wondering what is going on inside the summit - I have no idea what the world leaders are talking about but I do know what the wives had for lunch!

The tastiest part of the pastry canoe — which was almost childlike in its cuteness — was the violet-hued mousse, all pillowy softness with unexpected white chocolate pearl crunch.
The soup, people will be amused to learn, is a modified version of a recipe the Royal York developed a few years ago for the annual Milk Calendar put out by the Dairy Farmers of Ontario.
Toss strawberries, cream, yogurt, honey and orange juice into a blender and purée. The taste is pure berry, the presentation charming. Servers poured soup from individual white porcelain teapots into white bowls holding tiny rounds of panna cotta topped by raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and blueberries and a single viola.
(Is this actually a 'soup' and not a dessert?)
From the reporter...“We’re here for the pastry canoe — it’s breaking food news,” I joked with various officers. I’m not allowed to tell you how my silly banter went over or what anyone replied.
Have a fabulous day!
