Delicious dessert looks like… a burger?!

Burger day is set! A milieu of greasy spoons come together on June 3, 2012 from 11:30 am – 3:30 pm at Wychwood Barns in Toronto, for what could be a heart attack waiting to happen.

Yogalicious can meet this challenge! Fearless in the land of caloric overload, Yogalicious joins world renowned Chef Bruno Elsier to create the ultimate dessert experience: a decadent, artisan dessert burger; the ultimate paradox: delicious and nutritious in a burger… yup, the Yogalicious Burger, aka: Yoga Burger!

Let’s be honest folks, the popularity of Fast-Food burger joints proves that even bad burgers are good… but, why settle for less than the best? We’ll show them how it’s done. We are going to make Canada healthier one Yoga burger at a time!

Get the goods at Toronto’s largest “BURGER DAY”, Wychwood Barns, June 3, 2012: 11:30 – 3:30… stay tuned here and at thegrid.to/burgerweek, for hints about our hot ingredient deck. Local is back!

Chef Brad Long’s Café Belong: Toronto Brickworks’ oasis of calm

Cafe Belong is now serving Affogato, translated as “to die for,” and yes, featuring Yogalicious Vanilla as its main scoop. Staff, service and sensory delights are to be had at Cafe Belong. Love these folks!

Find Chef Brad Long on Twitter, map/directions to the restaurant on Facebook, and check photos of their gorgeous, delicious food and environment.

The Mother of Mixology: Renata Clingen

Renata Clingen is featured in The Grid mixing up her latest and tastiest drink, “Necessity” which of course is available at Cafe Belong.

Renata is the City’s BEST ‘mix·ol o·gist’ and we can sample her goods at Cafe Belong where local, organic and sustainable yum is the focus. Renata takes the art of drink to a new level with her creative cocktails. For those looking for recipe ideas for the spring fling, this one is awesome. My thought, I need a “Clingen Cocktail AP”.  

RECIPE: 

Gosling’s rum + Yellow watermelon–Thai basil syrup + Elderflower sparkling water + Ice + Thai basil–leaf garnish

Ice cream, frozen yogurt and gelato had a lovechild: YOGALICIOUS

Well, according to some scientists, there are animals that mate in threes. Apparently, the capelin is one of them. Two males assist the female capelin in pushing spawn out of her body. Hmmmm… makes you wonder eh? Some say dessert is as good as sex. Not sure I agree, but looks like ice cream got together with frozen yogurt and gelato and voila, yogalicious is born!  This post is thanks to Anthony Wills, the dude who inspired this vision. The things people talk about in java shops!
