Pay is back from a trip to Nova Scotia where she walked in on her mom massaging lobsters. It's a real thing, apparently. Listen to find details.

Chef Rob Gentile (Buca) and Afrim Pristine (Cheese Boutique) join the show to talk about their love of dogs and how they're raising money for the Etobicoke Humane Society with a big BBQ event where dogs are welcome!

Have you heard of the Newcomer Kitchen? Did you know there are a group of Syrian moms making delicious Syrian meals that you can order to take hoe? Len Senater (The Depanneur) offered his kitchen space to a group of Syrian moms new to Toronto who were staying in hotels and didn't have a kitchen to cook in. With the help of Rahaf and Esmaeel (recently arrived Syrians who assisted in coordinating), that one event snowballed into many opportunities for the Syrian women including cooking for 1000 people at the recent Laminato arts festival and catering a private VIP dinner for guests that included the Mayor. Learn about how you can get involved with Newcomer Kitchen to help them grow and expand.
