In 2013, after several months of experimenting in her small kitchen, Vera Van Stapele decided that she had created a cookie that was special. The cookie was made of dark chocolate dough, baked crisp on the outside and filled with a gooey white chocolate. With this cookie, she took the risk of opening a shop with an unlikely – and often failed – concept: a one-product bakery, in a back alley on Heisteg 4 in Amsterdam. Her cookie concept took off and the shop has stayed successful ever since. Thousands of happy customers, word of mouth and long line-ups have kept the little shop in the forefro ..read more

Bringing to life the darkly shiny opulence of dining rooms of the past was the goal of chef-owners Craig Harding and Julian D’Ippolito when they set out to create Bar Prima in Toronto’s Queen West neighbourhood.
