wino! but only the good stuff. That being said, you do not have to spend a lot to get a great wine. We have our fair share of $$$$ wine in our cellar, but I really love it when I find a great wine, or one with aging potential, for less than $25. foodie-We'll try anything at least once! If it doesn't move (and sometimes even if it does) we'll try it! We'll try it again if it's good. You have to keep an open mind to new experiences. I come from a family of chefs (the latest addition - my niece won the Escoffier award), and my father-in-law was a European trained baker (Konditorei). My husband and I grew up surrounded by great food. However we both did NOT go into the business. I'm in health care, my husband is in construction. Needless to say, we are both the black sheeps of our families when it comes to food. We're fine with that - it just means we have to try a little harder, therefore we tend to be more experimental. At the end of the day, our families always want to come to our house to eat. love the outdoors - camping, hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing, gardening (all better when done with good food, fine wine and great company) travel-we love Italy, Switzerland and Austria. And Canada - specifically Ontario - is so beautiful. It has so many hidden gems. I also think that Toronto is underrated as a culinary city. It has such a diverse population base. You can find a restaurant or grocery store that caters to every ethnic base. There is only a small handful of ingredients that I can't find in Toronto. (Surprisingly, Maytag Blue Cheese being one of them) Also the St. Lawrence Market is amazing. It truly is one of the best in the world! love animals Blues hound - actually any good music is food for the soul
