Little Serow – Washington, DC
The internet describes Little Serow as “Intimate & dark, this cavelike spot serves an innovative set menu of Northern-Thailand specialties.” Sounds pretty enticing doesn’t it!   Little Serow describes themselves as a restaurant serving a set, family-style dinner of ...

Had my first meal at Pigeonhole while in Calgary this past week. It was a lovely experience from start to finish, with attentive staff and delicious food. I’m starting to wonder if there is any thing more you can ask for these days. The one real gem for me was the bread. That red fife ̷...

#17 – Des Iles & Ula Kaniuch; Hot Sauce Business.
After a few attempts to get Des on the podcast, things finally lined up when Ula agreed to come by and join her. Coming together through yoga and photography, Des and Ula have clearly become close friends (even if they are opposites in many ways). I’m beginning to think that the best way to...

Sugarbowl – Edmonton, Alberta

There has been much running this year in my life as I prepared for the Edmonton Half Marathon. All of this recent running meant long runs on the weekend.

Lamb Head Tacos
Even if you don’t like the reminder, you need to remember that consuming meat is far more involved than that piece of cardboard and plastic wrap in the grocery store leads you to believe. Simmer lamb heads for 10 minutes in a big pot of water. Dab dry with paper towel or cloth. Rub with ...

Feeling incredible grateful to have Andrea Rice stop by the podcast this week. I’ve been lucky enough to spend some time with her as of late, and it always leaves me inspired and curious. Writing those words reminds me that one of the reasons I started this podcast, was so that I could help...

Open Up and Om – #14 – Danielle Murray & Michele Theoret. Filmed On Location
I made my first real upgrades to the podcast recently, which is awesome, because it now lets me have up to three guests on at once. And what better way to crack open the conversation then by having Danielle Murray and Michele Theoret come by for a talk. I love these humans with all my … Con...

Northern Chicken – Edmonton, Alberta
Posted
I’ve always had a soft spot for Andrew and Matt, It probably dates back to all of the bacon infused comas they’ve induced over the years. Unfortunately, Andrew and Matt are working farther and farther away from the homestead. Which means, I don’t get to see either of them nearly...
