SPRING 2022

PRES I DE N T ' S L E T T E R Welcome to the Spring 2022 edition of The Collection. Since our last issue, travel restrictions have been reduced, several health protocols enforcing crowd limits have been lifted, and, of course, a senseless and unfortunate war in Ukraine has been upending lives and dominating the news cycle. Though in the face of such terrible human suffering, talk of real estate trends can seem less important, we’ll continue to educate the community through spaces like this one. One of the things that has stood out to me, after more than two years into this global pandemic, has been the resilience of the real estate market. Demand for homes has not been quelled, and prices continue to rise accordingly. As of early March, all seven of the Toronto Regional Real Estate Boards districts were posting average sale prices exceeding $1,000,000: Halton ($1,530,224), Peel ($1,317,192), Toronto ($1,210,889), York ($1,587,603), Durham ($1,228,990), Dufferin County ($1,049,670), and Simcoe County

($1,232,479). Prices are growing world-wide, and Ontario is leading the way. Despite measures being putting into place that apply pressure to demand, interest in home ownership remains strong. Certainly, rising interest rates, an increase to 20% for the NonResident Speculation Tax, and policies such as a cooling period, which was recently announced in British Columbia, will take some buyers out of the market. But, it only takes one purchaser to make a sale. Today, we continue to see multiple offers occurring in high numbers. With that in mind, I think it’s never been more important than now to work with a trusted real estate advisor. Realtors have access to properties not exposed to the general public, relationships with colleagues across the industry, and the necessary knowledge and experience to get the job done. We look forward to continue building that relationship with you in the months and years ahead. Enjoy the Spring issue of The Collection!

a private garden in oakville is enjoyed year


The Collection: What makes for great outdoor space? Janet Rosenberg: A great outdoor space should be a comfortable and customizable sanctuary — a place where you can escape, relax and entertain. Gardens are organic living things — they grow and evolve over time. We like to provide the infrastructure for great garden spaces that are functional and visually beautiful through all seasons. A great outdoor space should reflect your lifestyle needs, whether its quiet contemplation in a lush garden or entertaining with family and friends. I think it is important to think about how you want to use the space and how much maintenance you want to take on. Smart design considers comfort — sun and shade opportunities; privacy; protection from wind; natural flow from inside to outside; and, how people will use the space. We love to introduce a rich layered palette of plants and trees to add texture and structure to gardens. We are using lots of native perennials and shrubs in our designs

which are well suited to our growing conditions and can require less irrigation and maintenance while still achieving strong visual impact. TC: Do you have a design philosophy? JR: Place-making — the process of creating quality spaces that people want to live, work and play in — is one of our key design philosophies. The goal and focus of much of our work, in both the private and public realm, is to strengthen the connection between people and the places they inhabit. I believe design should be very informed and responsive to the site and context. As landscape architects, I think we have a responsibility to consider sustainability and resilience in every aspect of what we do. TC: The concept of ‘home’ has really changed dramatically over the last two years. How have homeowners changed their approach to their exterior space?

the award-winning revitalization of the rock garden at the royal botanical garden was designed to shift this heritage garden in a more sustainable direction through an entirely new planting strategy that moved away from a reliance on costly and high maintenance annuals. the project looked at ways to attract new audiences to the rock garden, with flexible and diverse programming and education opportunities. photo credit: jeff mcneill

JR: The pandemic has brought a new level of appreciation to outdoor spaces for socializing and generally enhancing well-being. We have seen tremendous interest from clients to make improvements to their outdoor spaces that extend their seasonal use with elements such as covered shade structures and heaters or fire elements. There is also lots of interest in pools and hot-tubs, but also outdoor kitchens, and pavilions with entertainment systems (sound and TV or movie screens) and comfortable furnishings. Our gardens and porches were how many people connected with their extended families over the past two years and I think we have put new value on these spaces. TC: What trends should we be on the lookout for in 2022? JR: Sustainability and designing with nature. There is lots of interest in ‘wilding’ our cities and gardens and shifting perceptions about what healthy and thriving gardens should look like. I believe there is a growing shift away from the perfect manicured grass lawn and beds of annuals. We are seeing more interest 10 | the COLLECTION

in using native plants and grasses that require less maintenance and water. Native plants, sourced locally, are more resilient and responsive and tend to be hardier and more adaptable to extreme weather events. I think there are ways to design with native plants in masses that provide beautiful visual impact through all our four seasons, and also provide habitat and food for birds, butterflies and insects. Given all that’s happening in the world, creating sustainable, environmentally conscious outdoor spaces should be a priority. TC: Toronto is becoming a city of condos. Do you have any recommendations for people living in a building? JR: We have had the privilege of working on a number of condo and mixed-use developments in Toronto. Many have components including large amenity terraces, green roofs, and at-grade public landscapes. Amenity terraces and private terraces can provide an incredible extension of living space, and they don’t need to be all hard surface. We like to integrate areas of extensive and intensive green


roof and also lots of pots and containers of varying heights and sizes. This can add layers of green and provide opportunities for herb and vegetable gardening too. Great furnishings are key, but it is also important to consider the view from inside the condo unit and the layout of furniture inside. Awnings and shade sails can be great for comfort and extending use. With clients moving into new condos, we often take advantage of the opportunity to upgrade the paving material while the crane is still on site, and we make sure that there is water provision to the terrace. TC: How have environmental issues informed your approach to landscape architecture? JR: Climate change is an urgent crisis that landscape architects have an ethical obligation to address. We need to invest in low-carbon, low impact, climatepositive strategies, and can start by creating outdoor environments that are sustainable and carbonneutral. For example, we look carefully at the grading of a property, to see how water can be collected and reused for irrigation or slowly infiltrated. We also look

at low maintenance gardens with native and hardy plants and pollinators. We also try to do a lot of green roofs and green walls, because they help collect water and reduce the “heat island” effect. We are trying to source materials locally, and we are exploring reused and recycled materials wherever possible. TC: Is there one thing that you are working on right now that is really innovative? JR: We’re currently working on a major project at Nepean Point in Ottawa, a spectacular lookout over the Ottawa River, Parliament Buildings, and the Canadian Museum of History, just behind the National Gallery of Canada. It’s a culturally and historically significant space that was previously disconnected both from the urban fabric and the river valley landscape. A key design move was to 12 | the COLLECTION

blur the boundary with the City and river via the use of a Ha Ha — a historical landscape element used to control access without blocking views. The Ha Ha collects stormwater to prevent cliff erosion, showcases a diverse native floral display, opens up views by concealing guard rails and serves as a key interpretive element that tells the story of the river. The space is under construction and set to be complete in 2023. I think, as we talked about earlier, the pandemic has really made us appreciate our parks and gardens in a new way. We are recognizing the value of our outdoor spaces as key contributors to our overall health and wellness.

AGO captures the everyday in By Jordan Z. Adler A new exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario will feature grand artworks from Jean-Michel Basquiat and David Hockney, dazzling illustrations from Toronto artist Fiona Smyth, and hundreds of items from Andy Warhol’s personal time capsule. But the display pieces that curator Jim Shedden keeps thinking about are the grocery lists. “They’re so fascinating,” says Shedden, who is also the AGO’s manager of publishing. “We were looking at the grocery lists the other day. And I thought… those poor artworks, I don’t know how they’re going to compete with these grocery lists.” Those ordinary items are among the focus of I AM HERE: Home Movies and Everyday Masterpieces, opening to AGO members on April 13 and to the general public April 16. I AM HERE will showcase decades-old home movies and photo albums from around the world, as well as diaries, mix tapes, and Instagram grids. This exhibition attempts to map how artists – both amateur and professional – have tried to capture fiona smyth, cave paintings to tiktok: a timeline of self-documentation, 2021. ink on paper and digital drawing. commissioned by the art gallery of ontario © fiona smyth

the world. The aim is to bask in the delight and pleasure of the familiar, as well as show how artists have made sense of what they see in front of them. “Everybody can be creative,” Shedden says, “and they can have a creative response to the world around them.”

new exhibition

Its timeline of human ingenuity moves, as one of Smyth’s loosely-assembled comic panels, from cave paintings to TikTok. The exhibition, which was originally announced in early 2020 and later postponed, includes brand-new pieces conceived during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We wanted to make sure there were opportunities to reflect on what had happened in the last couple of years,” Shedden says. But those expressions are not merely reflections on quarantined anxiety and ennui. Many art pieces capture a sense of rage and injustice. In a room inspired by the activism that arose from the response to George Floyd’s murder in May 2020, one will see images and footage from protests around the world. This part of the exhibition also contains thumbnailsized videos of police violence in the United States in the four-month period following Floyd’s death. Shedden says this collage of footage is meant to tell the story of police brutality without fetishizing the violence. “It’s one of those rooms that could’ve been infinite,” the curator says. While this footage from recent years is searing, I AM HERE also aims to reveal the more distant past in old home movies, collected and archived by Rick 18 | the COLLECTION

Prelinger. Prelinger’s collection of home movies and other ephemera, housed in the Prelinger Archives in San Francisco, includes more than 60,000 films. Thousands of those archival and amateur works are also available online, as part of the Internet Archive. “The exhibition is all about themes that we saw in traditional home movies, and some that we didn’t see. Just the kinds of things that we, as humans, have been cataloguing and documenting, sharing since perhaps the beginning of time,” Shedden says. Also a professor of film and digital media, Prelinger collaborated with the AGO’s curators to bring those vital records of daily and domestic life to a larger space. I AM HERE culminates with a 26-minute compilation of home movies, directed by Prelinger, which will be projected on multiple screens. In PANORAMA, each minute is devoted to a different letter of the alphabet. Although the


A-to-Z chapters seem to provide a structure, it’s not a narrative; instead, it contains a collage of the quotidian, with a randomness that Shedden says he finds endearing. Shedden also notes that Prelinger “has a pure love for emulsion, sprockethole kind of cinema,” referring to the textures and imperfections of old Super 8 and 16mm film. Among the other found-footage treasures projected in the space will include Arthur Jafa’s seven-minute film Love is the Message, The Message is Death. This collage of the African-American experience is full of pain, joy, and dance. Fitting between the home movies and other documents of the day-to-day, Shedden and his curatorial team — including Prelinger, Alexa Greist, and R. Fraser Elliott — have included several pieces more traditionally found in art galleries.

Among them is the gargantuan, 20-foot painting Santa Monica Boulevard by David Hockney, a portrait of the sun-drenched neighbourhood outside Hockney’s studio. This will mark the painting’s first public viewing since the late 1970s. The striking, sometimes-photorealist works of master Canadian painters like Mary Pratt and William Fisk will also be on display. Their stunning artworks are tethered to the exhibition’s theme, as the artists evoke the daily flux that surrounds them.

“This is really about [including] people who just really embraced the everyday with either a sense of love or awe,” Shedden says. Other components of I AM HERE capture a sense of minutiae that Shedden says he finds invigorating. One of the most intriguing finds is more than 200 copies of The Beatles’ White Album, accompanied by a listening station. Artist Rutherford Chang has compiled, over many years, thousands of first-edition copies of that selftitled album. Each copy tells a different story of the lifespan of the classic-rock record, and about the relationships between music lovers and a popular

artifact. “You can actually open them up and look at them,” Shedden explains. “They have all that kind of dirt and grime, and fadedness, and people writing on them, ‘I love Paul.’” There is something poignant in seeing the same objects and rituals – such as that obsession with The Beatles or those grocery lists — span across cultures and nationalities. But a significant portion of I AM HERE will derive from the pop contemporary, including bits from Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram. There will be snippets from early reality television, like the interactive TV series Speakers’ Corner (including early footage of the Barenaked Ladies), as well as clips of Jennifer Ringley, widely considered to be the first camgirl. Meanwhile, Shedden says iconic works are reemerging from the vaults. Displays will include 20 | the COLLECTION

prominent pieces by Sandra Brewster, Jack Chambers, Keith Haring, and Keiran Brennan Hinton. It is not difficult to bridge the kinds of material and digital artifacts on display with some of our creative impulses: shooting a home movie, taking a selfie, making art with materials from home. As a result, I AM HERE may end up being one of the AGO’s most absorbing exhibitions. “It’s a very earnest and optimistic show, which I think makes it somewhat unusual in the world of contemporary culture,” Shedden says. “It’s joyous.”

Admission is free to AGO Members, those with an Annual Pass, and those 25 years and under. Timed-entry tickets must be booked in advance and are now on sale. For more information, visit www.ago.ca

THE FRONT GUY IN CONVERSATION WITH ALAN DOYLE Alan Doyle may be the hardest working man in show business. It has been over two years since the Covid-19 pandemic virtually decimated the entertainment industry. After such a lengthy layoff, one could understand if an artist’s creative output has suffered, but the former Great Big Sea f rontman appears to have been invigorated by the pages of an empty calendar. In these two years alone, Doyle has released two EPs, the collaborative Songs From Home and his own B a c k to t h e H a r b o u r , a l i ve a l b u m , H e re To n i g h t , p u b l i s h e d t h e b o o k , A l l To g e t h e r N ow , to u re d E a s te r n Canada, performed with Blue Rodeo, wrote original music for the CBC television series, Son of a Critch, gone back to the studio to work on a tribute to the late Ron Hynes, and has written the music for and is p re p a r i n g to s t a r i n t h e n e w p l a y, Te l l Ta l e H a r b o u r , set to debut at the famed Charlottetown Festival. We s a t d ow n w i t h t h e f a m e d f ro n t m a n f o r a conversation on live music, what makes a great band, and his upcoming theatrical debut.

SPRING 2022 | 25


The Collection: You’re currently in the studio, what are you working on? Alan Doyle: Do you know the songwriter, Ron Hynes? Ron was a hero to our community, who passed away too young. So, a bunch of us are working on this 20song, 20-band retrospective. It's been really fun. TC: You’ve had a very productive couple years. Where do you get the energy? AD: I love to work and participate in fun projects. The pandemic took away the thing we love to do the most (tour), which we do a hundred times most years, so that left me with a lot of spare time. Nothing terrifies me like a blank calendar. I also worried about my friends who were very quickly unemployed. So, I wanted to see if I could kickstart collaborative things like the Songs from Home record and that EP, Back to the Harbour. This Ron Hynes project, 20 different bands are playing on it. So, I put my mind to things I could do to occupy myself, but also things I could do to help my pals who weren’t going to get a gig for what we assumed would be six weeks and ended up being two years. TC: What’s it like to be back playing live?

AD: I've always been an appreciative guy, I think, and grateful, and I thought I knew how much playing live shows was a part of who I am, but it turns out that I didn’t. When it got taken away from us as a community, and for me, in particular, it's a lot to miss. I'm cautious on how I talk about it because I don't want to sound like my job or my days are any more important than anyone else’s. But just very practically speaking, if you work over there in that office building and you live over there, and your journey between that home and that place of work gets taken away for a month or a year, well that's a certain amount of things to miss. If you're like me and you spend your life in a 40-foot bus with 12 people who you do this special thing with, and every single night you're in a different place and a different crowd, and every day is a different place and a different experience…that's a lot of things and people and experiences that all of a sudden are not with you. I won't ever take it for granted again, if I ever did. TC: You rose to fame with Great Big Sea and now play with the Beautiful Beautiful Band. What do you look for in a band? AD: Oh, they’re just great friends of mine and musicians that I've admired for decades. My favourite thing about the Beautiful Beautiful Band gang is that they can play

anything. I spent my young life playing in pub bands and cover bands doing rock ’n roll and 50’s music. And then, of course, two decades playing Celtic music with Great Big Sea. And my own stuff wanders between country, rock, pop, Celtic, and traditional. So, it's tricky to find players who are comfortable walking between those genres, and still be great people to hang with. TC: You performed last summer at the amphitheater. The fiddle player, Kendel Carson, was a real highlight. MC: On top of being a spectacular person, singer, and all-around musician, I don't know anybody that's better at their instrument than Kendal is at hers. She just elevates everything around her. I stand between her and Cory Tetford, the guitar player, every night, and I have the best seat in the house. TC: You're releasing a live album, Here Tonight. What can audiences expect? AD: It's a collection of recordings from over the last two or three years. We started recording our concerts in 2018, and during the pandemic, plucked some of our favourite performances. TC: When you're writing an album, are you writing songs with a live audience in mind? AD: I'm guilty of writing songs for the concert, more than for the record, for better or for worse. I like making records, I love to be with my friends in the studio, I like producing music for other projects, but nothing trumps a live show. My first instinct is always songs for the setlist, knowing the different kinds of songs you need to make a full and complete experience for people. TC: How do you mix the set up to keep it exciting for yourselves? AD: There's a half-dozen songs we play just about every night. They are the biggest in the concert and the ones people deserve and expect. But then we vary it a lot. And, we don't play them the same every night. There are nights that Cory doesn't play electric guitar on something, he might play banjo or ukulele. Or I might play bouzouki instead of guitar. I find that the content of the concert is about much more than the

setlist. It’s about how to figure out in an instant how the night needs to go. That's the challenge of being a front guy. But that's part of the joy. Gord Downie once said to me that something needs to happen tonight that only happens tonight. And if that's a good thing, that's great, and if that's a bad thing, that's fine, too. Why are people coming unless something happens tonight that only happens tonight? It's a very rewarding thing to find a place and a circumstance where we can go on stage and just enjoy that time and not be too bothered if something is going to shag up or not. Everyone’s there to have that experience with you, so don't play it safe. TC: You're preparing to debut your new musical, Tell Tale Harbour. How did this come about? AD: Adam Brazier, Creative Director for the Charlottetown Festival, saw the film The Grand Seduction [and] decided it would make for a great musical comedy; it had all the elements. Adam, who has a long history with musical theatre, and Bob Foster, Music Director for the Festival and for Come From Away, teamed up. They asked if I would write some songs. So, I wrote a couple of tunes and they liked them, so we kept going. Then I convinced Ed Rich, my neighbour, and a wonderful writer, to become the head book writer. And Jillian Kylie, who I went to high SPRING 2022 | 27


school with and is probably the most storied theatre director in the country right now. I convinced Jill to direct the show. It's been a wonderfully collaborative, challenging, enjoyable journey so far. TC: Is writing musical theatre different than writing for an album? AD: With any kind of concert or record, those songs stand alone. You just need them to be good songs. In musical theatre, that's less than half of what they are required for. You need them to move the plot along, you need them to reveal something about the character. It's like a Rubik's Cube, and if you're in charge of the song writing colour, let’s say the blue colour, you twist it a few times and go, hey, I got all the songs done, all the blue is done…and somebody from the story department says, yeah but you shagged up yellow and green. Every department is trying to help the other while still forwarding what they're doing. I'm convinced musical theatre is the most difficult performative art form to get right. TC: Did you always have the acting bug? AD: In high school, I quickly turned my attention to playing in bands and music. I never spent time

daydreaming about television or movies. About 10 years ago, I got a gig in a film because they needed an Irish-y sounding guy who could play medieval instruments. Shortly after, friends were starting a television series in St. John’s called Republic of Doyle, and they needed a hairy, bully-looking guy, so I played a recurring role. And now, this came up…but this was special. Tell Tale Harbour is a very important story, and it feels especially poignant coming out of the pandemic. There's this reassignment of the value of rural places and the message of home is very important and special. TC: For those who haven't been to the Charlottetown Festival, what can they can expect? AD: For those who have never been to Charlottetown in the summertime, it is glorious. The city and the whole island are delightfully beautiful and charming. The nights out are excellent, the morning walks are brilliant. Then there's all kinds of entertainment happening over the island, and the centre of it is the Charlottetown Festival. There's a reason why the most successful musical in Canadian history (Anne of Green Gables) has been playing there for 50 plus years. It's just a spectacular geographical and cultural experience to see what happens there on any given day between May and October.

DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2022 BY LINDA LEATHERDALE In a world plagued by so much uncertainty, there is one thing we can still rely on. Our homes have become our sanctuaries…safe havens to retreat to and de-stress with family and f riends. The trend of making our homes into our castles, no m a tte r h ow b i g o r s m a l l , c o n t i n u e s i n to 2 0 2 2 . We are transforming spaces into places we dream of: bathrooms with spa like features, foor to ceiling f ireplaces to warm us, renovated kitchens with all the bells and whistles, f itness rooms, home off ices, and entertainment areas that bring the outdoors in. “It’s all about feeling safe and secure in our surroundings, yet being able to enjoy the f iner things in life, and enjoying them in our homes,” says celebrity designer Jackie Glass, owner of Jackie Glass Inc., sought-after media commentator and regular on CityLine TV. Helping to realize these renovation dreams, says Glass, is a “chest of cash, built up in bank accounts after two years of limited spending on dining, travelling or enjoying other perks that have been restricted during the pandemic.” 34 | the COLLECTION


GETTING BACK TO NATURE AND E M B R AC I N G S U S TA I N A B I L I T Y: The “buy it/throw it away” days are fading, with environmentally conscious consumers choosing products that are kinder to Mother Earth. This means we are seeking out eco-friendly products such as quartz surfaces which are food safe, stain resistant, and maintenance free. Quartz manufacturer Cambria, for example, practices safe and environmentally friendly manufacturing with every quartz surface, and celebrates the beauty of nature in every design.

WELLNESS SPACES: A growing trend is transforming bathrooms into spa-like settings, where health and wellness can be practiced at home. Soaker tubs, massage tables, and eco-friendly, wall clad showers with no grout to clean are all gaining in popularity, as is adding that touch of timeless class, like a chandelier or high-level finishes. Custom home gyms, with the latest in equipment, like stretching areas and hydrotherapy, are also popular.

This kitchen, featuring Cambria's Inverness Bronze, is sleek and modern.

Top of the line bathrooms with spa-like amenities , like this one featuring Cambria's Inverness Frost design, are a popular trend.

LETTING THE OUTDOORS IN: Retractable glass doors that open home entertainment areas to the outdoors are popular. Some homeowners are also adding outdoor kitchens and living rooms with hi-tech audio-visual entertainment areas and bunkies that serve as play areas for the kids or backyard retreats for the hobbyist. This stunning kitchen, featuring Cambria's Clare design, opens to bring the outdoors in. SPRING 2022 | 35


MAKING A STATEMENT: The wow factor has certainly become vogue in the design world. A sweeping fireplace that spans two storeys or more, like the new Inverness Collection by Cambria quartz, shows off the latest in design and can make a big statement. The same for well-designed kitchens with backsplashes that match the countertop design for a a seamless look, or oversized islands big enough for entertaining while prepping food, and feature elegant waterfall edging.

This quartz fireplace, showing off one of the latest designs, Cambria's Inverness Gold, makes a big statement.

WORKING NINE TO FIVE? Punching the clock is out of touch with today’s reality of working more from our homes. This trend is expected to continue long after the pandemic becomes a distant memory, as employers realize the efficiencies of a technological revolution that allows us to plug into work from almost anywhere. This, in turn, creates a renovation craze to turn that spare bedroom or basement space into the office of your dreams, complete with coffee stations and relaxation areas. Even working from the cottage has become normalized. Just imagine…an office on the dock followed by a cocktail at quitting time! LOOKING FOR MORE? Add a splash of wallpaper. Mix vintage pieces with nouveau. Add gemstones to your art collections for a zen feel. Celebrate nature inside and out. Spruce up gardens for curb appeal. And take time to hug the kids, family, friends, and even the pets. These days have taught us one thing for sure…life is so precious.

At home work stations, like this one featuring Cambria's Cashel design, are becoming more and more popular.

FL AVO U R S of the M O N TH Celebrating Ontario's Freshest Ingredients By Deirdre Buryk

40 | the COLLECTION


Ontario is a province with wildly diverse flavours and an ever-changing balance of seasons — a place that I believe should be a culinary destination. Sure, we are young when it comes to documenting our food history, maybe even a toddler stumbling in a world of grown-up regions like Oaxaca, Hong Kong, or Bologna, but Ontario is particularly special.

From my experience visiting farms, we have twelve distinct growing seasons, each with its own identity. Categorizing our climate into spring, summer, fall, and winter doesn’t seem to fit the bill when each month bears new ingredients at their freshest. It’s like having your very own culinary muse in your backyard (or balcony garden in my case).

Asparagus Nettle

Take a tomato…it’s so simple, plucked off the vine and eaten with just a sprinkle of sea salt. Or perhaps drizzled with an herb oil and placed on a hunk of warm baguette in August (not November, not April, but under the hot summer sun). By the time an ingredient goes out of season, something else, like a rich, nutty sunchoke, ready to relax into a velvety autumn soup, is in season, and the spirit of that August tomato will be a pleasant memory for next year. This time of year, as the sap in the sugar maples begins to rise, everyone in Ontario takes a deep sigh. The emerald-green buds from wild leeks become an epitaph to winter and remind us that there is life again. I’ll gladly trade in my toque and parsnips for a windbreaker and scarlet-red rhubarb. SPRING 2022 | 41


Spring can be confusing at times. You might see glimpses of bare legs peeking under puffy jackets, scarves wrapped around tank tops, and the most offensive…socks and sandals. In this awkward transition period, our hopes leap faster than the weather itself. It is a remarkable moment in our kitchens when hardy winter vegetables and young spring buds meet. One day you may be eating butternut squash, the next you are enjoying freshly picked asparagus. In the spring, year-round crops like new potatoes and Easter egg radishes are less fibrous and more subtle than their sturdier fall counterparts. Spring is also when we get to benefit from all of winter’s conserved energy. Vibrant colours and flavours show up on our plates, like in my Rhubarb, Bay Leaf & Frangipane Galette. This season is most exciting because these next few months promise something new and fresh. There’s a promise that our days will be brighter, that the sun will return, and that spring’s delicate vegetables have emerged. Roasted Radish Greens

Rhubarb, Bay Leaf & Frangipane Galette Serves a crowd


INGREDIENTS Pastry The protagonist of this galette is rhubarb because it’s more than a strawberry’s sidekick. Its sweet, tangy, deep-red stalks shine in this rustic French tart, and are heightened by the peppery, herbaceous scents of bay leaf. Galettes are a true lesson in the art of imperfection. No two galettes are the same. Many have cracks and crumbles, and no matter the filling, the results turn into something delicious. That is the magic of the galette.

1½ cups (190 grams) all-purpose flour 1 tablespoon granulated sugar ½ teaspoon kosher salt ½ cup (120 grams) cold unsalted butter, diced into cubes ¼ cup (60 mL) ice water

Filling 3 to 4 stalks rhubarb 4 fresh bay leaves, minced ¼ (50 grams) cup granulated sugar

Frangipane ½ cup (48 grams) almond flour (or finely ground almonds) 2 tablespoons granulated sugar ¼ teaspoon kosher salt 2 tablespoons (30 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature 1 egg 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

To Finish 1 egg, beaten (for the egg wash) Vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)

METHOD Make the Pastry In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, and salt together. Add the butter cubes and use your fingertips to lightly work the butter into the flour until it’s the size of peas (do your best not to let SPRING 2022 | 43


the butter melt in your hands). Add the ice water and continue to use your hands to mix everything together a little more, until the dough is crumbly. Lay a large sheet of plastic wrap on a work surface. Place the crumbly pastry dough onto the plastic wrap. Press the dough into a ball and wrap. Set the dough ball aside in the refrigerator until ready to use. Place a 14-inch (36 cm) square piece of parchment paper onto a clean work surface. Dust the parchment paper with flour and roll out the dough into a 12-inch (30 cm) round. Sprinkle with more flour as needed to prevent it from sticking. Transfer the dough along with the parchment paper to a baking sheet and place in the refrigerator to set for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 400ºF (200ºC).

Make the Filling Cut the rhubarb in half lengthwise, then into 1½inch (4 cm) pieces. In a small bowl, toss the bay leaves with the sugar. Use your fingers to rub the bay leaves with the sugar. This will release some of their aromatics into the sugar. Pour your sugar mixture into a large bowl and add the prepared rhubarb. Mix until the rhubarb is well coated, then set aside.

Make the Frangipane In a small food processor, combine the almond flour, sugar, salt, butter, egg, and vanilla. Purée until smooth, about 1 minute.

Finishing the Galette Spoon the frangipane into the centre of the rolledout dough, leaving a 1-inch (2.5 cm) border. Artfully place the rhubarb on top of the frangipane to cover it. I like to angle a row of rhubarb in one direction and then the next row in the opposite direction to form a zigzag of rows. Use the parchment paper as an aid to fold the exposed edge of dough toward the centre, enclosing the filling in a rustic manner. Brush the edge of the dough with your egg wash. Bake for 35 minutes or until the crust is golden and the filling bubbles like a cauldron. Let the galette rest on a cooling rack for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. I love serving it with ice cream, but that is completely optional. excerpted from peak season by deirdre buryk. copyright © 2022 deirdre buryk. photography ©2021 janette downie. published by appetite by random house, a division of penguin random house canada limited. reproduced by arrangement with the publisher. all rights reserved.

LEGAL MATTERS

GARDEN

The City of Toronto has just announced changes to their local by-laws that will permit homeowners to build “garden suites” in their existing backyards. Interest in these units will undoubtedly grow as residents look to expand their living space in the face of rising real estate prices. Here are five things you need to know:

5 THINGS TO KNOW

1. What exactly will be permitted?

SUITES By Mark Weisleder

You will be permitted to build a separate home in your backyard, provided you comply with the distance requirements from the back of your existing home


and the side and rear lot lines. The square footage of the home will need to be the lesser of 645 square feet or 40 percent of the actual backyard space 2. What is the difference between a garden suite and a laneway house? A laneway home is a home that fronts onto an existing laneway, or a rear garage that fronts directly onto a street. Here there may be issues with how close you are to a fire hydrant for access by emergency services in the event of a fire. The rules are similar to creating a new basement apartment as you need

to have a kitchen area, bathroom, sleeping area and a way to exit the home separate from the entrance. 3. What are the advantages of having a garden suite? One of the main advantages is that, if you comply with the requirements, you do not have to obtain any approval from the local Committee of Adjustments. This approval process typically brings objections from neighbours, who do not want to stare at a new structure in their backyards. Some parents may choose to spend their retirement years in a garden suite, while allowing their children to live in the main home. This could be a very attractive long-term planning option. 4. What are the disadvantages? It is still too early to tell what the costs are going to be, including any development charges that may be charged in the future or increased assessment fees. There will always be the issues of the neighbours who may fight to prevent you from doing this. You will also give up a lot of privacy once you make the decision to do this. 5. What should you do if you want to get started? The important first step is to find an architect who is both experienced with these types of dwellings and understands the rules. The person you hire should know exactly what you can and cannot build, to both maximize the dwelling that you want to create, reduce expected costs, and be able to convince your neighbours that it is an effective use of your backyard area. By being properly prepared before deciding to build a garden suite, you will not run into unexpected and costly problems down the road.
