Most of us have memories of going over to grandma’s house for dinner. It would have been an evening full of warmth, comfort, fresh ingredients and communal dishes between family and friends. The owners of the newly-opened Donna Mac look to resurrect what grandma used to do with their new neighborhood cuisine in the Beltline.
Inspired by what grows regionally and seasonally, Donna Mac rotates items regularly using as much of each whole ingredient as possible. This can be seen in how the items are listed on the menu with the focus on the main foodstuff like carrots, endive, duck View this Post

I find that downtown Calgary is home to so many restaurants of all types of cuisines from sushi to pizza to tacos and more. For some reason, Chinese food remains primarily entrenched within Chinatown while the rest of the downtown goes without. Two Penny in Victoria Parks hopes to change all that by offering a more contemporary Asian cuisine experience.
Inside you’ll find a beautiful decorated space (completed by the amazing Sarah Ward Interiors team) filled with comfortable seating and subtle Chinese décor. Jade green tones take over the room which is View this Post

If you are a sushi lover like me, then you probably are a fan of a few different kinds of sushi rolls and nigiri. I always need to fill up on a spicy tuna roll, throw in some salmon sashimi and maybe a specialty dish or two like some unagi or a sushi cone.

The Calgary Zoo’s annual winter tradition is in full swing! ZOOLIGHTS is now on until January 6, 2018 and is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

What do you do if you have a love for chocolate and getting crafty? Make a bunch of the sweet treats at Chocolaterie Bernard Callebaut of course! For #LoveYYC day, Tourism Calgary sent my sister, niece and I to the Cococo Chocolatiers-owned shop for a day of chocolate making fun.
The premier chocolaterie has been a staple in Calgary’s food scene for many years and I was so excited to go ‘behind-the-curtain’ to see how the chocolate process works. We were put right to work on a View this Post

#LoveYYC Day is a new annual tradition from the folks over at Tourism Calgary to celebrate and appreciate our lovely city. As a born-and-raised Calgarian, it sometimes seems like I’m a unicorn out in the prairies. But it’s been great to see how this small cowtown has grown to be such a vibrant metropolis over the years. For my long-time readers and followers, you know that I am a big fan of our city and an advocate of all things Calgary. Some people’s hobbies are sports or collecting stamps, mine is enjoying and embracing View this Post
