Eat, Relax, Play: A Trip to Adler Thermae Spa, Italy

A Foodie Paradise in the Tuscan Countryside

by: Gav Martell

You don’t need to see the culinary road-tripping movie The Trip To Italy to know that Italy immediately brings two important things to travelers' minds: first, of course, is the stunning landscape, from the pastel-colored sea-side towns to the lush countryside to the majestic ancient ruins; and second, the extraordinary flavors, from the fine wines to the multi-course meals made from fresh, local ingredients, like tomatoes, olive oil, and fresh cheeses.

How this Foodie Dad Made it to MasterChef Canada Season 2

One dad's journey in the quest for a white apron....

by: Gav Martell

My life has been a series of coincidences which defy logic. So to me it really comes as no surprise that I landed one of the coveted spots as a finalist on season 2 of MasterChef Canada. 
Case in point:
  • I wasn't supposed to go to sleepover camp in Wisconsin but followed a friend there after 10th grade when all other plans fell through... and ended up meeting the girl I would one day marry.
