Beer-Basted Beef Shanks and Argentinian Corn Pudding Recipe

A stick-to-your-ribs family dinner your kids will love!

by: Gav Martell

One of the best cookbooks I came across this year was Seven Fires: Grilling the Argentine Way. While it's filled with some awesome and delicious recipes for grilled meats, it was this corn pudding recipe that's really won me over. It's like nothing you've tried before. Warm, comforting, full of fresh flavours and simple. Paired with this recipe for slow-cooked beer-basted beef shanks — you'll have the family running to the dinner table!

Just How Safe Are Canada's Food Allergen Warnings?

A look at the effectiveness of food allergy labels

by: Gav Martell

For approximately 7% of Canadians, food allergies are no laughing matter. Those with food allergies have immune systems that mistakenly react to proteins in certain foods. Reactions can range from minor skin irritations, to gastro-intestinal issues,  respiratory or cardiovascular problems, and even death. Health Canada has implemented strict rules when it comes to labelling packaged foods with allergen warnings.
