Multi-Cultural Toronto!

CambodiaMy father came visiting from Cambodia over the holidays! Since we live so far apart, we tried to spend as much time together as possible. He stayed over at my sister’s and most of our gatherings were dinners. I told him about Gleeful Gourmets and he decided to cook me many of his favourite dishes. The Chinese traditional meal usually consists of white rice and paired with a few stir-fries and a soup.

After several traditional Chinese meals, I thought I would change it up a little, so I took him for a steak dinner at Pickle Barrel. Apparently he could eat the Chinese traditional meals over and over again. He told me that’s what he eats everyday in Cambodia. On the other hand, I don’t think I can stand eating the same type of meals for more than a week. This made me realize how multi-cultural Toronto really is. We’ve been spoiled with the greatest variety!

For this week, I’ve put together inspired versions of meals I’ve had over the holidays from my dad’s kitchen and different restaurants. I hope you and your family will enjoy them!
