I’ve spent months researching food and drink festivals around the world and I’d feel selfish keeping results to myself. I really want people to go to them because they sound amazing, and these festivals need support to continue and grow.
It’s the 10th annual Taste of Yaletown, and from Oct. 16-30 select Yaletown restaurants will be offering set menus for $25, $35, or $45. Bistro Sakana often gets overlooked by the ever-so-busy Minami, which I’m also a fan of across the street, and it’s a bit of a shame because it’s a solid restaurant.Read More
Follow Me Foodie to the renaissance of cauliflower: The history and varieties of cauliflower and deconstructing the craze.

When most think of Quebec, big cities like Quebec City and Montreal come to mind. I love both for different reasons, but the region of La Mauricie remained a mystery, until recently. The La Mauricie region is halfway between Montreal and Quebec City, and I was invited to explore what they called “Quebec’s new food region.”Read More
I had chosen the Thai Cucumber Salad for its simplicity and use of summery ingredients. I enjoy cucumber and tomato in salads or gazpacho but this was a chance to try them with different flavours. I loved how easily the salad came together in the mortar and it was a pleasure to make.Read More
