2011 Follow Me Foodie Favourites & Yearblog

Happy New Year! Welcome to my Follow Me Foodie Favourites & Best of 2011! This is a recap and yearbook/yearblog of the BEST Follow Me Foodie (FMF) Food and FMF Foodie Moments in 2011.

I wrote a Follow Me Foodie Favourites & Best of 2010, so I decided to do another one this year. I don’t even know where to start. It’s been a crazy year, and I’m so grateful for everything that has happened with this blog. I’ve loved every minute of it (even the parts where it hurt to laugh because I was so full) and I’m so happy to have shared these delicious moments with you. Thank you for following me foodie and cheers to another year of gastronomic indulgence!

NOTE: IT’S NOT NECESSARILY “THE BEST“, BECAUSE FOOD IS PERSONAL AND I CAN ONLY DISCOVER SO MUCH IN A YEAR. THESE ARE JUST SOME WORTH MENTIONING IN MY BOOKS… OR BLOG? BLOG. IT’S MORE OF A 2011 RECAP/SUMMARY. ALL EXPERIENCES ARE FROM 2011 ONLY.

  • Mijune says:

    @bel – Do it!!!! I’ll introduce you to so much more than just desserts!!! We have an awesome food scene!!

  • Mohamed says:

    Absolutely wonderful! I love sweet and tangy items – so the Lemon Tart looks great. I will have to drive out there and have a try. The Triple Cream Cheese Citrus Bar looks delicious as well, as did the Saint Honoré Cake (something you could probably make at home easily).

  • Mohamed says:

    BTW – found your site after looking or the best dessert places in Vancouver. Bookmarked and shared with my Facebook friends!

  • Mijune says:

    @Mohamed – wow!! You did??!?! I’m very thankful! I’m so happy you enjoy this blog… it’s my passion and life!

  • Mijune says:

    @Mohamed – wow! Saint Honore I consider a true test of a pastry chef… pastry, cream, cake… making everything from scratch is difficult! Try ordering a lemon tart from Kitchening with Carly too… it’s not advertised so you have to custom order it! Just put the name into google to find her site :)… I have a blog post on it too.

    If those dessert places you have mention are the best in Vancouver, it means you never tried the cakes from Transylvanian Traditions Bakery! Check here http://www.transylvaniantraditions.com and you wont resist!

  • Mijune says:

    @Narci – Hi Narci! I actually have! I like their slavic rolls, but the tiramisu was just okay. I thought it was good value.

    When I am in Vancouver I always return to two patisseries for the best desserts in town……Patisserie Lebeau and Patisserie Bordeaux. They both make mouth- watering desserts that are superior to all others.
