Dig­i­tal Hari­zons

Taste & Travel - - Letter - Janet P. Boileau PUB­LISHER

I DON'T KNOW how you spent your win­ter — cook­ing, en­joy­ing the great out­doors, or sit­ting by the fire with a glass of wine and a good book — but I was hud­dled over com­puter screen with our dig­i­tal team, work­ing on a new web­site for TASTE& TRAVEL. It's been seven years and count­ing and we were well over­due for a re­fresh.

TASTE& TRAVEL re­mains a quar­terly magazine but the new site al­lows us to pub­lish con­tent on a more fre­quent ba­sis and tap into the so­cial me­dia path­ways that de­fine the way we now com­mu­ni­cate. I've en­joyed de­vel­op­ing new skills and I'm ex­cited about the pos­si­bil­i­ties that the dig­i­tal uni­verse of­fers. Please visit the site and if you like what you see, share with oth­ers. Fol­low us on Pin­ter­est and Twit­ter if you'd like to keep up with us mo­ment by mo­ment. Back to the magazine — and in this is­sue, as usual, we’re all over the globe

— from New Zealand and the Napa Val­ley to China and Chile, find­ing out what makes peo­ple like us — who love to read, love to eat, and love to travel — tick. Wa­heeda Har­ris fell in love with a condi­ment in Sri Lanka. Nathan Fong found an amaz­ing taco joint in Ari­zona. Cather­ine Van Brunschot re­dis­cov­ered

Cal­gary and Susie El­li­son ate her way around New Zealand, ex­plor­ing the vi­brant café scene.

In the test kitchen we dis­cov­ered the ver­sa­til­ity of freekeh and the spicy cui­sine of Ker­ala. I ex­panded my own culinary hori­zons by cook­ing from the book Sal­adish by Ilene Rosen.

On the home front, we've some fab­u­lous pics of the Cana­dian Culinary Cham­pi­onships that took place in Kelowna in Fe­bru­ary. Con­grat­u­la­tions to win­ning chef Alex Chen from Vancouver! I'm ex­cited to be judg­ing again in the 2018 Gold Medal Plates com­pe­ti­tion,

at the Ot­tawa chal­lenge in Oc­to­ber. And I'm also look­ing for­ward to Au­gust 4, when the TASTE& TRAVEL team will be cook­ing up a storm for Food Day Canada. Salut!
