Silk Road BBQ
This week's feature was the Back Alley Woodfire BBQ and Grill on Augusta Avenue in Toronto's Kensington Market. It's a delicious whiff of the spices transported all along the Silk Road from Beijing to Rome.

Toronto's Kensington Market
This week featured a profile of Kensington Market in downtown Toronto, a district with a rich and colourful multicultural history. My guide was my cousin, Bill Genova, who offers tours of Kensington and other important Toronto neighbourhoods. He is a true storyteller loaded with fun facts and figures. You can check out his tours at www.genovatours.com.
Another Kensington Market link: We Love The Kensington Market. Unfortunately, the photo links on this site lead to very small thumbnails.
Here's a better link for history and current news, Kensington Alive.
