J and I are off to Vancouver tomorrow, and to put it lightly, I am EXCITED. I've never visited Canada's West coast before, and we both need a vacation. It's going to be a relaxed few days of wandering and eating. And hopefully it doesn't rain the whole time.
I have two food-related items on CBC over the next week that I wanted to let you know about. On Thursday morning on Edmonton AM, I'll review Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria (it's the magic of radio! taping things and making them sound live!). Then, next Monday on my cookbook column on Radio Active, I'm talking about a local cookbook that has just won big: Kitchen Scraps by Pierre Lamielle. Pierre lives in Calgary and writes a food column for Swerve magazine. He's a chef-illustrator and his book is a unique, witty visual feast. It recently won Best Illustrated Cookbook of 2009 at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards - good job Pierre!
I hope to return from Vancouver with some food tales. And I hope to actually share them with you this time, unlike my trip to Toronto. I always meant to write about some of the cool restaurants and cafes I visited, but time just got away from me. I'll try to do better this time.
Have a great week!
