I also have a platform to brag about stuff.
So here goes…
This week, a project near and dear to my heart was a awarded a very special honour. The Vegetarian’s Complete Quinoa Cookbook was awarded the Taste Canada/ CBC People’s Choice Award at this year’s national food writing awards. This award was chosen by the public in an online vote, meaning…you love us, you really love us! The book is a compilation of healthy vegetarian quinoa recipes (everything from breakfast to dessert) developed by Professional Home Economists from across the province.
We beat out Ricardo and Lynn Crawford and Michael Smith for goodness sake!
This cookbook contains 4 of my original recipes and was my inauguration in to the world of cookbook publishing and professional recipe development. The editor, Mairlyn Smith took me under her wing and trusted me in helping with her nutrition related editing and has become my mentor and friend along the way.
The book is a national best seller, but you can still buy one here. Christmas is coming.
These fresh rolls are one my recipes from the book. Try them, they’re awesome.
