This is the first in a series of posts we will be publishing over the coming weeks about the meals we had during our recent trip to Toronto - so stay tuned! We had been planning to make it to Toronto for a while now, and recently we took a long weekend as an opportunity to do so. It came as no surprise to friends and family that when we were asked what our purpose for driving 5 hours west of Montreal to Toronto was, our answer was an emphatic "to eat". Really, a more specific answer would have been: to eat at The Black Hoof.

Chef Chris Cosentino of San Francisco's Incanto restaurant and salumeria Boccalone, as well as star of several popular Food Network shows was recently in Montreal on a leg of the promotional tour for his new cookbook "Beginnings: My way to start a meal". While in town, after doing a book signing and meet & greet at Appetite for Books chef Cosentino teamed up with friends and fellow chefs Derek Dammann (of the now defunct restaurant DNA) and Fred Morin of Joe BeefLiverpool House to prepare a meal that won't soon be forgotten by all who were lucky enough to have attended.
