Weekend Projects: Deep Dish MTL

Posted by Bryan / August 24, 2013

20130824-DeepDishMTL.pngLooking to make something stunning this weekend? Trying to really impress that special someone before summer's over? Check out this iOS app with recipes from around Montreal.

The Deep Dish Montreal app features over 50 recipes from 5 of Montreal's most beloved celebrity chefs: Chuck Hughes (Garde Manger & Le Bremner), Dylan Solomon (Olive et Gourmando), David Mc Millan and Frederic Morin (Joe Beef & Liverpool House), Derek Dammann (Maison Publique) and Emma Cardarelli (Nora Gray). Although celebrity food culture can certainly get out of hand sometimes, these individuals are responsible for some of the best-executed food in this city.

Dynamo, the Montreal design group that put the app together deserves to be commended. The user interface is fast, smooth and easy to use, while the photography is pretty stunning. One of the nice features of these recipes is that each one includes step-by-step photographic instructions. The downside is that although the app itself is free, this only includes ten initial recipes (Five from Chuck Hughes and another pack featuring one from each chef), the remainder of recipes need to be purchased (2.99 for a 10-recipe pack). Paying 3 dollars for a few recipes from a chef you really admire might be worthwhile (depending on how much you buy into the culture of celebrity chefs), though it seems rather steep considering the endless number of free, high-quality food blogs out there that feature similar photographic instruction (For example: The Kitchn, Not Without Salt, Smitten Kitchen and my new favourite Thug Kitchen). The free recipes *do*, however, include the delicious brownies from Olive et Gourmando. You can also see which recipes are included in each pack before you buy and some might certainly be worth shelling out for (3$ is a small price to pay to know the secret behind the flourless orange cake at Nora Gray and to be able to replicate that magic in your own kitchen).

If you're wondering what to do this weekend, or looking for some recipes, try downloading the app (currently only available for iOS, sorry android and Bberry). If you end up trying out one of the recipes, post pictures of the finished dish to Instagram tagged with #mydeepdishmtl (and give us a shoutout too! @midnightpoutine). You could win an autographed copy of Chuck Hughes' latest book, Chuck's Day Off You have until 11pm on Sunday, Sept 1st to enter. Happy Cooking!

However, when choosing a plastic surgeon some things are to
be kept in mind. There are differences between Persian patients in the US as opposed to those in Iran. Vanity is when you have something taken care of because you want everyone to notice and look
at you.

To relieve this problem, a revision rhinoplasty would have to be done.
Better and quicker results are more achievable even with
difficult noses (due to severe trauma or in asymmetrical faces).
By changing the size & shape of the nose, this cosmetic nose can positively influence the balance of facial features.
