Where is the journey?

Cheese Shop at St. Lawrence Market in Toronto

I love going to St. Lawrence Market in Toronto. It’s among my favourite places to go.

I started this blog in part because the foodie in me had taken over another one, which became wildly unfocused as a result. I also embarked on becoming a “food blogger” proper because I wanted to share my love of food with others. I chose “journey” as a way of framing the experience, but I think I’ve lost the plot.
