Moosemeat & Marmalade

moosemeat & marmalde logoRecently I had the awesome pleasure of being invited to the Canadian launch party for APTN’s newest cooking show, Moosemeat & Marmalade, here in Victoria BC.  Previewing the first 2 episodes I came to the conclusion that this is far more than just a cooking show. Yes there was indeed some fabulous meals prepared by the London Chef Dan Hayes and bush cook Art Napolean  but they also shared stories and knowledge about their culture, history and the landscapes they were in. To complete the entrée each episode is spiced with the perfect amount of humor. (more…)

Dog-Days …and Nights (Travelling with your dog)

Saturday, November 29th, 2014

I thought finding a hotel that actively welcomed them would be well-nigh impossible. That is until I checked out Accent Inns – these guys seriously love dogs, as their advertising says they really do speak Pekinese; although Finn is not fluent in Pekinese he certainly understands the sentiment and approves by vigorously wagging his little nub of a tail (Australian Shepherds don’t have full tails).
