Toronto-based freelancer Nathalie Atkinson is a film critic and culture writer who covers everything from comic books and culinary trends to crime fiction and costume design. She is also a columnist for the Globe and Mail. In this issue, she explores our fondness for the fearless TV gumshoe in “True Detective” (pg. 37). And, one more thing … her all-time favourite small screen detective: Lieutenant Columbo. Dick Snyder insists rosé is not just a summer wine. “It’s really one of the most versatile matches for just about any food or occasion.” In “Tippled Pink” (pg. 54), he suggests how rosé and other pink drinks can brighten up a festive fall table. Also on his hosting hit list: wine picks from the Sunshine State “Wine Country” (pg. 82) and no-fuss chicken dishes “Comfort (Food) and Joy” (pg. 46). A seasoned food and travel writer, Snyder recently launched Drink Toronto, offering walking tours of the city’s top bars and restaurants.
