Great food is like great sex. The more you have the more you want.

Welcome Fellow Foodie!

Culinary Slut is the love project of two Toronto-based people who are food-obsessed and afflicted with constant wanderlust. Food is at the centre of everything we love – it decides where we travel and hike, it is how we bond with friends, and it influences how we explore culture. This is a digital foodie haven. On this website, you’ll find great restaurants, delicious recipes and amazing travel finds! We’ve also built a community with our fellow foodies offline though our dinner club and one-on-one indulgences.  We invite you to join us online and in-person.

Best Bits Worldwide

This site was created for passionate explorers who savor the authentic but also love the luxurious. Guidebooks and online searches don’t always have those certain somethings that make a place special – the Best Bits. Where to escape the hot sun over Hanoi while sipping the Vietnamese version of iced cappuccino…the out of the way ice cream that can’t be missed…. Those are the Best Bits you want to know about whether it’s your first time or your one hundredth visiting a place.

This is one of Canada’s best kept secrets. A vast wilderness of prairie grasslands and rugged hills, with great hiking and beautiful solitude. The lack of visitors – particularly relative to the immensity of the space – only enhances the emotive power of the place. The grandeur of the immense spaces reaches deep into one’s soul, acting as a balm against the manic pace of modern life and reminding us of nature’s healing powers.
