Man do I have news for you. Not only did I just get to Devour the entire food film fest that just lit up Wolfville NS, but I also have two new incredibly exciting gigs to tell you about. I’ve been waiting to break the news for some time and the anticipation was almost killing me. First, you’re looking at the new Maritime Correspondent for the online mag we all know and love, Eat In Eat Out. Amazing right? I’ve written for EIEO before and I’m completely smitten with Lori’s editorial style. She makes me look good. Honestly. I’ve seen the proof for my newest piece on The Art of Charcuterie and a trip to our local shop Charcuterie Ratinaud, and let me tell you, she worked her magic again. The holiday issue hits virtual stands Thursday with a whole issue of food, drink, restaurant reviews, and blogger profiles.
And it doesn’t stop there. The other I-can’t-believe-this-is-happening news is that I’ve started writing for the new Occasions magazine. Now under new art direction from the fine folks at the Chronicle Herald, I’ll be developing recipes for the In A Snap column each issue. I even food styled several of the shots with the exception of the Brie – though hello cover recipe! I’m still in shock that my name is listed right there. I am truly in love with the shots. For the complete issue, head to your local Nova Scotia Liquor Commission – because I’m sure you need another reason to visit the liquor store – or check it out online. But it gets better. I know, it doesn’t seem possible. That weekly Occasions section in Wednesday’s Chronicle Herald mentioned on page 4? That’s me too. Starting tomorrow, each week I’ll be bringing you a recipe to pair with whatever bevy is being featured. Sometimes I can’t believe this is my life.
A huge thank you to Lori, Mark and Brian for these amazing opportunities and for all of you for always having my back. Phew, now to get on a flight for Toronto and eat ALL THE THINGS.
