A little bit of news


I have a new, extra job at CBC Radio.

A job I would have dreamed about if I even knew it was a possibility.

Starting tomorrow morning, I will be reviewing Edmonton restaurants on the CBC morning show, Edmonton AM.


Needless to say, I’m a wee bit excited about this opportunity. It really is an amazing chance to discover new restaurants, write and talk about them, and learn more about the city’s food scene.

So tune in tomorrow morning (93.9 or 740 am) at about ten after eight 7:50 to hear my first review. We’re starting with lunch places, and I went to Van Loc, the Vietnamese sub shop in Chinatown.

My reviews will be on every two weeks. I have lots of ideas about where I want to go, but I’d love to get any opinions others may have about what restaurants deserve a review. Eaten at any good places lately? Any not-s0-good places? Let me know in the comments, or send me an email at

Hope you’ll tune in! (And I hope the review will be available on the website after. I’ll keep you posted.)

By the way, that picture up there has nothing to do with my news, but it is a lovely zucchini spice cake that I made a few weeks ago. I haven’t been posting much of my cooking or baking lately, so I thought I would show a little something. I really hope to be back here to do more of that soon.

Just heard your review. I'm looking forward to more, but I wish it were more often than every two weeks!
And "sticky rice sub"? eeww! I'm with you on that, but I look forward to trying out Van Loc.
