About Me

Formerly known as ‘365 days of Ottawa Food’ I renamed the blog (in part) to be called ‘Where the Locals Eat’ because that is what I am blogging about. Traveling as much as I do, I only wish it were that accessible to locate the places the locals like to frequent :)

I think it is only natural that I keep changing the ‘about me’ page – I haven’t been the same static person from year to year. We are rounding out my fifth year of writing this blog and thanks to everyone who enjoys reading it I have maintained a good standing Urbanspoon (now Zomato)! That’s how I know you are reading…

A little bit about me…

I was born and raised in Brampton, Ontario but moved to Ottawa for school… thirteen years ago now. Wow how time flies. I was dating a chef for so many years and grew to not only love food but understand it. Flavor profiles, origins, gastronomy. It was like I had been in culinary school for so long but instead of expressing my love for food through cooking I expressed it through this blog; sharing the passion of food through words.

I’m not a food blogger per se.  I definitely don’t sweat in the kitchen for hours making and creating beautiful dishes. Instead, I enjoy seeing what those who are masterful are able to do. So I go to restaurants with friends and family, and all too often by myself, and relax over a glass of wine (or newly local brewed beer) and a few dishes of delicious food.

Through my experience in blogging I have not only grown a wealth of knowledge for food creation and a palate for tasting but I have formed wonderful friendships with chefs throughout the city who encourage me to educate the city (and perhaps the world) about the food culture in Ottawa.

I have since moved to California to take on a new job, and very much a new life. But my whole word is still in Ottawa so I am determined to keep this blog going from long distance. Between frequent visits, updates on events and buzzings about who is who, Im sure I can make this work.

2015 – lets eat our way through the city.

    • HI Stephanie

      I have to apologize I was on hiatus for awhile and didnt see this until now. I am just about to ramp up the blog and make sure I have all my contact info up to date. Please do continue to reach out and hopefully I will be able to attend the next one! :)

  2. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers
    made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
