About The Podcast
“It was not long ago that I stumbled upon an article suggesting that Canadians are more willing to travel for food more than other people in the world. It just seems so obvious to me that this is something that should be celebrated!
I am so passionate about food experiences, all things wine and just about anything to do with travel.
My home base is Sudbury, Ontario, Canada – but as the article suggests…I will go pretty much anywhere for some great food, wine and fun!”
If there was a recipe for this podcast, it would look something like…
1 part opinion
1 part destination feature
1 part casual interview
2 parts recipes and tips
3 parts authenticity & occasional sarcasm
…and a few dashes – to taste – of photos, videos and links in the show notes…
Mix well. Consume often.
