Community & Arts Kensington Men's 1990 Cook-Off by Nelson Melo Learning With You ., ~ ,.. I "' ~ I i i II•~ ~ The 1st Annual. Men's Kensington 1990 Cook-off at the LAST TEMPTATION was a smashing success. Sponsored by the Kensington Ladies Auxiliary - founded by Nora Claire Muirhead and Lorraine Darling - its main goal is to promote community spirit and participation. Kensington Ladies' Auxiliary in conjunction with William (owner of the LAST TEMPTATION) provided the place, judges and the prizes. The first category consisted of soups, salads and hors d 'oevres. 1st prize went to a juicy combination of Alaskan King Crab marinated in Portuguese hot pepper sauce. This particular dish was gobbled up before anything else. (The chef in question was ·later disqualified for unsportsmanlike behaviour, so first place has gone to the tomato salad provided by Louie Albino, followed by the Gypsy Goulash which was prepared by Vladimir.) The second category was made up of entree dishes. The shrimp and clam rice dish came in first place. It seems Louie Albino's creation was a popular choice amongst the participants and the judges agreed. Honourable mention should go to Buzz Burza's DRUM Chicken with its Jalepeno peppers and green banana mix. The traditional Japanese Sushi dinner came in a close third place. The desert category was a toss-up between the 1st prize apple crisp (Roger Evans) and 2nd prize Strawberry Parfait (Louie Albino). The baked apple came in 3rd, this creation by Ellis Clark. The presentation category was bac;ed on arrangement, colour and style, and 1st place went to Louie Albino's Tomato Salad for Category A. Robert Foster grabbed I st prize in the entree category with a splendid arrangement of Sushi, tea and soy sauce. Louie Albino grabbed the first prize in the dessert category with a lovely Strawberry Parfait The whole gathering was a pleasant and easygoing way of spending a Sunday might in the Market. The judges seemed to favour the creations of Louie Albino in all the categories. The award for 1st prize is a bottle Albino in all the categories. The award for 1st prize is a bottle bronze medallion designed by Lorraine Darling. The second prize consisted of three bottles of . champagne, one for each winner. The third award was a grab-bag prize with a beautiful flower arrangement by Mai of the LAST TEMPTATION. . On top of this them usic of Billy Buttery provided a traditional folk set with arrangement" of bongos and accoustic guitar sets. Judging by the good tum-pit anothe food supplied there is no doubt that this event should continue. Nora Claire and Lorraine should be given honourable mention for their idea, sweat and appetite without which we couldn't have had a good evening.

This is the oil truck, this is the fire truck, and this is oil spilled all over the ground. The Oil Flood by Sophia Perlman I was at school and our furnaces need oil cause our furnaces are oil furnaces. One day I was at school the oil didn't go into the furnaces. The oil spilled all over the sidewalk. One of the fireman came in to say not to bring the children out but the teachers thought that the children should have a breath of fresh air so we went out anyway. But the children had to walk in a big sandwich and we each had to have a partner. And we had to follow our teacher because we didn't want to step in any of the polluted oil. The firemen brought in fans to blow the stink out of the school. We went to the park across the road. We had to hold our partner's hand. We were in the park for in between a.long time and a short time. It was fun and we watched the firemen work while we played. I had a nice swing. To get all the oil off you see they took the stuff that looked like sand and they put it on the oil and then they swept it up and it cleaned the oil. It got all over the sidewalk and even in the school's parking lot. It was a really big oil flood. Firemen did the work. Pumper trucks came to bring all the quippment to clean up. I was feeling really happy when I was playing in the school yard and I saw them go. I yelled "Good-Bye Firemen" and I could see one of them waving back to me.

Kensington is star of the shoW (but at Queen and Ossington) -- Community & Arts by Milan Cheylov Kensington on Ossington? Anyone who wandered down to the new Theatre Centre home at 1034 Queen Street West last month enjoyed a real treat. Kensington Carnival Arts Society, our own neighbourhood theatre company, produced "Kensington Sons etLumieres (Living Memories)", a multi-media stage extravaganza based on the historical development of Kensington Market. "Kensington Sons et Lumieres" was a lot easier to see thantosay.It'sawonderful, warm and enchanting show, loaded with energy and humour. Scripted by Michael Glassbourg and directed by Ida Carnevali, it traces the Market's growth, from the first Jewish settlers in the mid-19th century, through the Portuguese influx of the 1950's, to the Chinese and West Indian immigration wave of the past twenty years. The play provided a valuable history lesson for those unfamiliar with Kensington, and offered special treats for those of us lucky enough to live in the Market. The production even managed to focus some attention on the prob- !ems this community is currently facing - crack-cocaine, the yuppie invasion, etc. All of this was presented in an inventive and intelligent fashion, spurred on by the fresh, fun sounds of John Millard and the Polka Dogs, a quirky combination of tuba, trombone, banjo and accordion. Some of us wondered how the show would make the transition from outdoor to indoor -(it's been part of the summer Kensington Karnival two of the past three years). We were not disappointed.The hugely gifted Howard Jerome who played the rag and bone man was the show's narrator/tour guide. The rest of thecompany,awellcastandeclectic mixture of experienced and inexperienced actors, told the story with great enthusiasm and verve.
