Segovia Restaurant

Segovia Restaurant became part of the fine dining experience in the heart of Toronto, thanks to the dedication of Galicia-native chef Ino Gonzalez. For over a quarter of a century, it has been a favourite of those 'in the know'. After 57 years in the kitchen, Ino is stepping back. This book is a celebration of his 26 years as the maestro de Segovia. His restaurant had been the core dining room for Spaniards and Spanish-aficionados in the Toronto region. His love of Spanish art and culture are seen on the walls and heard through music and flamenco. His love of 'la gente' made him the patron saint of over a generation of Spanish speakers finding their feet in Canada. Gracias, Ino! View Book

A story that will really make you tremble with anticipation!

Bowmanville’s Octagon House

Octagon houses are a difficult buildings. More than likely, it has historic designation, including this one in Bowmanville. For some people, such as designation is a benefit; for others, it is a bane. Unless your residence is so designated, you have no idea the restrictions and obligations that come with the label ‘historical’. Elements that seem superfluous to the amateur eye (the owner’s)turn out to be of great interest to the authorities, especially when it comes to renovations.
