6-Year-Old Embarks On Smile Mission

It is every kid's worst nightmare and six-year-old Jaden Hayes has lived it -- twice. First he lost his dad when he was four and then last month his mom died unexpectedly in her sleep. "I tried and I tried and I tried to get her awake -- I couldn't," said Jaden. Jaden is understandably heartbroken. "Anybody can die, just anybody," he said.

Louis XIII Rare Cognac Only $1,000 A Half-Ounce

Louis XIII Rare Cognac
Think $20 for a cocktail in a restaurant is pushing it? Try sipping King Louie, at $1,000 a “pop.”

That’s what Shoushin, a new Tokyo-style sushi restaurant in north Toronto, is charging for 15 millilitres of Louis XIII Rare Cask 42,6 — a unique experience, to be sure, since it’s the only bottle in a licensed establishment in Canada. And, take heart, too, since everybody who orders a glass gets a plate of sushi to go with, so you really have to factor that into the price.

Sushi and cognac may not appear to be a natural pairing, but Shoushin’s highly original chef, Jackie Lin, sees it differently.

More in the Toronto Star.
