Short & Sweet
A passionate food nerd who loves eating, talking, and learning about what goes in our belly.
Long & Slow
Eating is the Hard Part is currently in its second incarnation (the first is here), and continues to evolve. This side-project, turned all encompassing hobby, started as a way to inspire good conversation about food. The pages you find before you will include everything from restaurants to ranges. Never a review, what you’ll find is a story. A story of a meal, or a story about a food. Some of them are short like a good poem, and some long, like a well developed play. Hopefully, what you’ll find will bring a smile to your face, an inspiration to your heart, and a reason to eat.
After jumping around from homestead to homestead, I arrived back in Edmonton and saw a window of opportunity. Instead of spending my time listening to chef after chef on TV, I wanted to talk with people in my own backyard. People who could be engaged into talking about where something comes from, what the perfect temperature a loaf of bread should be, and how best to butcher a pig. Real conversations involving real foods.
I like grapes, cask aged beer, and the smell of fresh bread. When I’m not riding the food train, you’ll find me learning about cameras, plucking away on a guitar, dreaming about far away places, and hopefully, practicing for the triathlon that I’d like to one day complete.
With an open oven, a big appetite, and desire to make your day just a little better, I welcome you to have a look around.
