Never, in my wildest dreams, did I think I’d be getting my Jughead-on. In the morning. On live TV, to boot. Woohoo!
From May 9th to 13th on Breakfast Television Calgary, I will be judging burgers alongside Kitchen Scraps author Pierre Lamielle and Cheap Eats author and Calgary Herald’s food reviewer John Gilchrist.
The burgers will be judged on taste, presentation and value.
The schedule is as follows:
- Monday May 9: Five Guys Burgers and Fries
- Tuesday May 10: Boogies Burgers
- Wednesday May 11: Burger Inn
- Thursday May 12: Fatburger
- Friday May 13: Kulinary Kids (to reveal the winner!)
I hope you’ll tune in to see the early meat-eating.
To prepare for these horrifically early mornings, I’ve put myself on a modified sleep schedule. Today I woke up at 8:00 a.m. I have two more days to change that to 5:30 a.m….wish me luck.
If you love burgers, please comment and let me know why you love them so.
Thank you to Joelk75 for the photo.
Was stoked about going to Global Fest to see Spain compete. There is something truly magical about the yearly international fireworks competition. The fireworks light up the sky to inspire us as summer wanes and just before our work/school schedule gets fully loaded.
The bonus of attending Global Fest is the international cuisine. There is Ukrainian, Indian, Persian, Caribbean, African food–there were others but I was getting too hungry to focus. Even though all of us had pre-eaten, our mouths watered at the fantastic sights and smells.
We opted for the Central African booth, sharing fried plantains (9 for $6), donuts (8 for $4) and three skewers (chicken, beef, shrimp with olives and peppers) (3 for $12). Read More
Far from a superficial want, food is sustenance, it’s joy, it’s community. For me and for some of you, food is a way of life.
I respect where our food comes from; those who produce our food and those who prepare it work hard. This website is a celebration of those people and meals.
That said, I am not afraid to post bad reviews on here. Your money and time are valuable. Spend wisely. Nothing sucks the joy out of an occasion faster than a mediocre meal.
Although we all love fine dining, let’s face it, sometimes all you need is a Baconator.
A stint in the hospital gave me a new appreciation for what goes into my mouth. For a backgrounder on the origin of my food obsession, read I Live To Eat (published in NYUMMM magazine).
