Spice up your Life

Food blogger Jodi Samis has sourced a wide selection of bulk and pre-packaged herbs and spices from around the world in preparation for the opening of her new store, Cardamom and Cloves.  She also plans to provide custom blends of rubs and spice mixes.  Most importantly, customers will benefit from knowledgeable service about the origin of herbs and spices, and their proper storage and use. Cardamon and Cloves is scheduled to open in early February in Little Italy at 440 Preston St.

Frogs ó A Chorus of Colours, is an impressive collection of live frogs, displayed in beautiful mini-habitats, captivating adults and kids alike. X-rays of Arctic Fish is a visually stunning exhibition of backlit images that reveal the intricate bone structure of fish found in the icy waters of Canada's Arctic regions. The museum will shine later in the spring with the Creatures of Light: Nature's Bioluminescence exhibition.  Shown for the first time in Canada, this brilliant exhibition is all about amazing organisms that produce their own light.
