Black Skirt, L'Avenue, El Camino's
Host John Catucci gets his pasta fix at Black Skirt in Toronto, ON, enjoying his Domenica spaghetti – translating to ‘Sunday spaghetti’ – mid-week! Chef Aggie cooks her Nona’s sauce for this giant plate of pasta and John once again finds comfort in his heritage. Then John visits the hottest brunch spot in Montreal, L’Avenue. He better brush up on his French to order the signature sucré-sale-croustillant (sweet savoury crispy) – a plate filled with crunchy panko coated French toast covered in ham, cheese and sweet maple syrup. Finally, John heads to Vancouver, BC’s shrine to Latin cuisine at El Camino’s. Nothing warms John’s heart, or tantalizes his palate, quite like a Spanish sandwich stuffed with short ribs and chimichurri! Delicioso!
