Posted by Drake, 2 months ago

To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday we put together an all-star lineup of Montreal and Toronto Chefs for the first-ever Barn Burner Hockey Game. In the second installment of Ice Breakers, we hear from a Toronto Grinder who started his hockey career long before his culinary career and calls the upcoming Barn Burner, "the most epic restaurant event."

Canada's Top Ten + Canadiana Cool: Director's Take

Posted by Drake, 2 months ago

Canada's Top Ten Film Festival is all about highlighting Canadian talent in film. Through this selection, we get to see how different Canadian stories manifest on the big screen. As purveyors and revelers of Canadiana cool, we loved putting together the Chesterfield Lounge and filling it with maple syrup pillows, wild life and other things that scream "Oh Canada," but we also know that the definition of "Canadian" isn't always a tangible concept so we talked to some of the directors to get their take on what Canadian identity means to them.
