#221 Toronto Revealed and Revered
It's been compared to New York, but for me, Toronto looks, feels, and tastes a lot more like Chicago. It's Canada's biggest city, but it still has many small town charms, not the least of which are the two famous markets, Kensington and St. Lawrence. We'll take you to both, one creaky and quirky, the other jammed with weekend shoppers and tourists. We'll also get a sense of Toronto's ethnicity with a profile of one delightfully high in fat Italian Ice Cream producer, an Italian Trattoria, and an authentic Portugese restaurant. Top it all off with a back bacon sandwich, and you have the ultimate Toronto food experience!

#222 Idaho-Famous Potatoes and a whole lot more!
Everyone knows about Idaho’s famous potatoes, or do they? They sure will when we get through. From the family farmer, to the harvesting, processing, and packaging, we’ve got the scoop on Idaho’s spuds, including some awesome home and restaurant recipes. We’ll also showcase Sun Valley, one of the world’s top resorts, and an area packed with great restaurants. And, from the Idaho wilderness comes Trinity Springs water. From a source two and a half miles deep the water pours from the ground at 138 degrees. It’s the deepest source of drinking water in the world, and some of the best water you’ll ever taste! It’s Idaho soup to nuts, or in this case, potatoes to water.
