Culinary Highlights: 2009 Edition

Scanning my posts from the past year, I was reminded again of how fortunate I am to be a part of a great culinary community in Edmonton and to have experienced (and eaten!) what I did in 2009.

So as in years past, here are a few of my culinary highlights from 2009, in no particular order:


Food: Today, Tomorrow, Together organizers


Pigs at Nature’s Green Acres


The greenhouse at Greens, Eggs and Ham


Me and Mack with our potato bounty

  • Attending my first ever Indulgence, and finding out that the evening really does live up to its name.


My favourite dish of the night – a Carmen Creek Ranch slider, prepared by Botanica


Wild Boar and Beer 2009


With the bell that I got to keep

  • Doing a lot of cooking (at least for me), including one of my favourite dish discoveries, cassoulet.

With Chef Rob Feenie (Mack made me take the photo)

Melt-in-your-mouth gnocci at Proof

Jessie Radies of The Blue Pear, one of the three people I interviewed for the story


  • Attending two Foodie Meetups, and getting to meet some of the wonderful local food bloggers in person.

  • Continuing to find diners to love – and still hoping for more of them in Edmonton.

Here’s to more eating in 2010!
