  • Honoured to be a guest on @globaledmonton this morning talking about the food story movement and #YCFSbook.
So thankful about the opportunity to share how valuable #urfoodstory is and the across #Canada interest in coming together in community to learn from each other, celebrate diverse food cultures, recognize the importance of food traditions and our legacy.
You have a unique food story and that's what makes it special. We could be from the same region in Canada but our experiences and memories are different... we need to hear about them. So we can grow together and be truly nourished.
Do you have a food memory/story you'd like to share? We'd love to hear it! Head over to urfoodstory.com, click the "YOU" menu and click on "SHARE A STORY"
Want to get your hands on a copy of the book? Click on the link in my bio to preview and purchase on Amazon. Live in #yeg? You will find the book at all 3 @ItalianCentreShop locations.
Feel free to connect with me. I'll be happy to help answer any questions. Have a great day! What's #urfoodstory? 🌱

  • It was another hectic day and I was so happy this meal came together fast. It was easy to prepare, tasty, and beautiful to gaze upon.
Chicken Kiev from @nait retail meat store edges up against Tuscan parsley roasted potatoes, garlic Swiss chard and sundried tomatoes with black sesame seeds, and for crunch... I love my raw carrots!
Most of the veggies and the herb came from @strathconamarket and other local stores. Can't go wrong with #evoo on the potatoes and Swiss chard. Wholesome and delicious dinner.
