My relationship with Matt, founder of Vancouver slop, was born over a dinner at Guu and a conversation about colonics. My colonic doctor advised that I stay away from spicy foods. With that said, I upheld my friendship with Matt and lost the Dr.
If you've ever met me, you would know that my favourite restaurant in my home town of Toronto is Terroni (traditional southern italian food/see iphone commercial). Lucky for me, my dear friend Joyce visited me recently and with her brought a jar of Terroni's homemade pepperoncini (spicy chili peppers). Needless to say, I have drowned everything in sight from pizza to sunny side up eggs with these beautiful deep red ornaments of spicy goodness.
Too much to get east? Try south! Los Angeles has now acquired it's own Terroni which I have visited. Amazing! Terroni also made it to the top ten list as to why LA is better than New York (that's questionable).
My medical opinion...whether it's Terroni's own or an Italian jar from Bosa Foods, please keep your kitchen stocked with a jar of these spicy little devils. Put them on your pizza, put the oil in your sauce and add a little spice to your life!!
