Rachel McAdams takes cooking classes in Kensington Market
Rachel McAdams plays it differently than most homegrown starlets who find success in Hollywood: she lives north of the border in a Toronto Victorian, bikes or walks everywhere, and still sports well-worn boots from her days as a York drama student. Although she is currently gracing the cover of Vogue, wearing Dior and Dolce and Gabbana, McAdams says she isn’t interested in material possessions: “I really don’t desire things. I prefer to spend my money on experiences, on meals or travel.” Recently, her Toronto experiences have included knife-skills sessions at the Kensington kitchenware shop Good Egg, which prompted a vow to improve her vegetable slicing technique. She prefers to eat at “unstarry, cash-only, foodie-slacker restaurants” like New York’s Kasadela in Alphabet City, where McAdams opts for spicy chicken wings, grilled salmon skin and dried nori. Her ideal day? Kundalini yoga, grocery shopping and fixing up her once tumbling-down house, which she shares with her brother. This day sounds unconvincingly simple for someone who once dated Ryan Gosling and Josh Lucas, but true to her “famously private” reputation, we assume she’s simply leaving out the most salacious details.

Is there a Vancouver City issue of your magazine?? It’s a fantastic idea and I would be interested in a subscription
It’s nice to hear someone of her movie stature seems grounded. Good for her! Sherlock Holmes was great.
Don’t quite a few “Hollywood” people still live in Toronto (or at least, when they’re not working)?
Love to have Rachel come out and cook with us on Le Gourmet TV!
That would be a hint to her publicist to get in touch so we can set that up.
How about pairing up with my wife and I who are wine experts – we could do an internet food and wine series
Working on her vegetable chopping technique… hasn’t this girl heard of the Slap Chop?
vegetables are so good for our health
