After a few depressing weather days in April featuring rain, snow and gloom I was thrilled to wake up to a sunny day. I hopped on my bike with blue skies in the air and zoomed south towards the lake in search of the Distillery. I was pleased to see a patio ready for pouring at Pure Spirits Oyster House.
After locking up my bike I hopped into the dining room which offered an industrial vibe featuring metal bar stools and dining chairs. I was joined at the table by my good friend from Corby’s wine expert Penelope Irving. We hadn’t seen each other since before I left for my trip to South Africa last Fall so had a lot of catching up to do! We spent the next two hours chatting about Toronto’s food scene, blog life, our favourite wines and exciting upcoming travel plans. We enjoyed a light lunch featuring shrimp, chop salad and savoury spiced squash cannelloni. I peddled away inspired by the promise of patio season. Rush into me summer I’m ready for you!
