Kimchee, the spicy Korean delicacy of fermented cabbage and assorted veggies, and Chef Boyardee, hold divergent yet profound influences in the life of writer and restauranteur Sang Kim, who runs the Windup Bird Cafe in downtown Toronto.

"I actually thought Chef Boyardee was real," said Kim, whose childhood after coming to Canada with his parents from Korea in 1975 was marked by poverty, hardship and those red cans of ready-to-eat-meals. His parents' marriage dissolved in those early years as well.

The most irritating book I read this year

The most irritating book I read this year, and I mean that in a good way, was Time Will Say Nothing: A Philosopher Survives an Iranian Prison, by Ramin Jahanbegloo. It goads you into thinking about topics like torture and Toronto.
