TOCA, at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto, is welcoming its Taste Italy Series, a three-course meal featuring a different region of Italy each month, starting with Tuscany.
A few Magic Hours and a nap later, it was time for a classic Italian dinner at Toca. Crump suggested I sample the signature dishes: start with the burrata, followed by the bistecca alla fiorentina 32-ounce dry-aged grilled steak and the ravioli stuffed with caciotta cheese, marjoram, and tomato sauce split with a dining partner. The simple, elevated dishes also paired perfectly with the sommelier's recommendations. A day of wining and dining meant only one thing: falling asleep in my supersoft bathrobe watching The OC.
