The Dining Room of Colborne Lane
Avant-garde fine dining? Can this be a reality in the city of Toronto, still relatively green in establishing its place in the highly competitive world of dining. Perhaps it is Chef Claudio Aprile's bold endeavour to introduce a conservative Torontonian palate to the somewhat new movement of Molecular Gastronomy that has all the buzz a-going. I was personally excited in partaking in a local "MG" experience, particularly after a recent trio of gluttonous MG-centered pleasures in Chicago (Avenues, Alinea and Moto). I also knew that my impression of Aprile's nascent work could end up being an unfair comparison to that of Achetz, Bowles or Cantu (who are all still very young), as honing in ones craft takes both effort and time. As the only chef who is currently serving up molecular gastronomic creations, Aprile is our industry standard, a position, I am sure we'll see more competition of in this fair city as the days pass. Housed in a heritage warehouse building, the aptly named Colborne Lane (as that is the address) hides amongst other new contenders to the city's burgeoning restaurant scene, taking over the space of what used to be Cafe du Marche. Its physical appearance also challenges the visual senses. Lost are the days of fine dining with white linens and table cloths, Aprile (ex- of Senses) & Harji (of Blowfish and Kultura) take the pretentiousness out but leave the higher prices in. Don't get me wrong, Colborne Lane is still a restaurant that is lit by candlelight, but is also decorated by interestingly shaped light fixtures that appear to come out of an artist's garage. The establishment also leaves out the warmth and romanticism that one typically feels when out consuming a special meal, replacing it instead with a rather dark and cool room filled with mild rock 'n roll/alternative music and decibel breaking chatter. Not quite a dining experience that caters to most patrons, the do-it-yourself tasting menu creates a situation where you, as the diner, possess the responsibility of making the most appropriate selection of courses. In that sense, one is challenged in how he or she will make or break his or her evening. Does one focus on meat-centrity or attempt to make a fine balance between courses (i.e. can you trust yourself to get enough vegetables with your meal, or order some light and heavier items)? Will one be bombarded with too many flavours from all ends of the spectrum or stay conservative with monochromatic familiarities? Does one try to select options that feature a logical progression in the course of the plates or does one choose on the basis of components of interest alone? And although there is much potential on paper with the items offered, and there is good use of fantastic ingredients, along with the application of nouvelle concepts and interesting dishware, Aprile's kitchen appears to try just a little too hard in winning over tastebuds. Conceptually the chef's work deserves great applause; I seriously appreciated his attention to the visual and textural game, however menu items provide too many tasting options on a single plate and end up overwhelming the diner's senses. Sometimes variety is a good thing. For Colborne Lane, it doesn't always work and can leave one slightly confused. Additionally, with the advent of tapas sized dishes, one is required to select at least 3-4 plates in order to find satisfaction. So do consider ordering your own dish if an item peeks your interest, because there really isn't enough to go around to share. And although this result in many tastings for any given diner, it also contributed to a hefty final bill due to the increase in trapped white space found on each of the large platters. (A big thank you to KJ of SE and her kind and generous invitation for me to join in on an evening of lovely company). Service is friendly and respective, and depending on who is serving you, you might also be gifted with silence inducing dry humour that is offered at the most inappropriate of times. (After we had finished our desserts, JL was asked how he enjoyed things and when he hesitated to reply, was hit with the statement that the server would send his insults to the pastry chef – a remark that seemed to stem out of nowhere. Poor JL! I must give kudos to our initial server who was more helpful, quite pleasant and patient with us (rather me, and my camera).) The kitchen does send out plates slowly, so be prepared to wait a little (or a lot) between courses. Colborne Lane does successfully provide the city with a segue into an interesting and progressive movement in dining. It is a refreshing move from the tried and true establishments of yesteryear, but sometimes it is with ventures like these that can make one appreciate why the tried-and-true remain as such. Whether or not Toronto is receptive of such novel forms of dining is another issue that can only be tested with time.
Chaos In The Craft Room
Chaos In The Craft Room does not even start to describe the problems I have in this room. Each room in my home is very neat and organized but this room I have no idea what to do with it. A friend who lives far off is willing to give me some hints and tips of how she keeps so organized with her crafts supplies and when I say her stuff is organized that is what I mean. This photo is for you and thank you for being willing to help me figure out new ways to get this room under control. Photo 1- Is pull out bins I use for scrapbook supplies, floral design items, oil paint supplies. As you see next to the bins are my blank canvases still in the plastic bag from the store since I have no where to put them. Photo 2- I bought a old dresser at a thrift store to use for fabric and my lock and locks for letterboxing. The top drawers are used for scrapbook paper and underneath is a prefect place to hide our hiking shoes. Photo 3- More Bins full of supplies sitting on top of the old dresser and above them are shelves my husband built that I place shoebox containers on them filled with my craft items. Photo 4- Shelves used to hold books I use (at bottom), printer & modem, with ATC / LTC shoe box bins (middle), only area I have to place the mag light...letterboxes to be planted are in green bins, and the ugly gold colored thing I use the bottom for out going mail and the top for postal letterboxes that have been returned or ones I need to log+ ATC's/ LTC's that need to be put away. Photo 5- View of the shelves my husband installed for me above the dresser to put more of my craft supplies away. Photo 6- Camera bags hanging on a hook, and my easel sitting anywhere. I have to oil paint in another part of the house. Photo 7- Computer and my inspiration board. Photo 8- Just started making Whimsey Jars- The blue bin is full of glass containers ready to be used, the box will hold the ones that are decorated waiting to be filled, and sitting on top are our hiking poles and the chairs we use while at letterboxing events. A photo I wished I had took and included- The inside of the closet in the room is used for photo storage. There are albums stacked from the floor up to the shelve , the shelve contains larger items I need but rarely use such as poly fill. You ask for a list of hobbies or things I make: (this is only items I do at least once every other month) * photography * oil painting * making journals / logbooks with Bind It All * hand carving rubber stamps * swapping on Swap Bot * floral design * Quilting * candle making * Crochet * Ceramics * Scrapbooking * Card Making * Whimsey Jars * ATC's / LTC's * Hiking * Letterboxing which inclues postals, LTC's, tarditional, etc. * Paint Shop Pro Thanks again and if anyone viewing this has other ideas I am willing to listen.
