Fine wine delivers a small bouquet of joy.
Especially when that wine is paired with great food. Knowing which wine to pair with what food is the work of sommeliers.
Writing about a sommelier challenge that involved three incredibly talented sommeliers, three wine expert judges, two savoury dishes from one of my favourite chefs in town and 12 incredible wines can only be described as a plum assignment with spicy notes and an incredible finish.
I hope you’ll enjoy this very fun article about City Palate magazine’s annual Iron Sommelier Challenge. I sure enjoyed writing it. It was fun to capture the very playful scene it became and to learn from the experts. If you’d like a sneak peak into what went on in the background of this article please read on…

Chefly Screen Shots
Wednesday, May 7 6:30 p.m.
Festival Hall in Inglewood
This event qualifies as both a very #CoolThing and a major #ArtInstallation. It promises to be quirky, upbeat and delicious and I’d say it’d be the funnest event this year for those that love food, art and film.

Chocolate is a great ingredient and some say it is its own food group. In the history of chocolate, we’ve gone from small family run firms concerned with ethical practices and the purity of their product – to big multinational corporations infamous for their exploitive monopolies and ruthless quest to increase bottom lines – to a new trend back called the “bean to bar” movement which appears to once again be focusing on purity and ethics.
This post will talk about what it means to be a bean to bar chocolate maker and the history of how we’ve arrived at this trend. To close we’ll focus on Alberta’s one and only bean to bar operation, a company called Choklat and its three Alberta stores.
If you read John Gilchrist’s article above, I think you’ll agree it’s nice to see that one of Calgary’s three year round markets is refurbishing and expanding. Now that we have three farmer’s markets open year round in Calgary it is so much easier to source your food locally and directly from a great local food producer.
Here are the links to our three year round farmer’s markets as follows:
I’ll be speaking about lots of ways to #EatLocally for the Calgary Public Library at three sessions this week and next. The schedule is as follows:
