Welcome to Feeling Foody!
Offline, I’m a non-profit manager who’s passionate about the social good sector and Canada’s performing arts scene. I’m a former arts administrator who maintains a strong connection to the performing arts through volunteer board positions, some freelance writing, catching shows whenever I can, and dancing with my modern dance collective. Expressing creativity in the kitchen has become an increasing joy over the past few years, and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by to share in it!
Now, let’s clarify something:
Foodie = a noun. Definition: one with a particular interest in food (a gourmet).
Foody = an adjective. Definition: finding oneself transfixed by the experience of food as it stimulates any of the five senses.
Feeling foody is the state where expectations fall away, and you let your senses guide you into combining flavours, colours and textures, playfully imagining the outcome. Feeling foody is looking at a pumpkin and seeing a cheesecake with pepita brittle garnish.
Feeling foody is seeking out new taste adventures. Taking that first bite of a restaurant meal and feeling your head spin with all the possible answers to, “How did they do that?” It’s finding solace with a pot of freshly brewed tea and the newest issue of Bon Appetit magazine.
This is a space where I can share my foodie passions, discoveries, and creations with a focus on all things wholesome, local, and seasonal. And it’s a place for all of us who get chills when the barista hands us a perfectly brewed cup, those who can easily lose an hour scrolling through Insta feeds of cupcakes, and the ones who always bring the best appetizers to any potluck.
Yours, with love for great food,
