You look like a Tempranillo to me

I’m sure I’m not the only writer who looks back on their past work and shudders. Fortunately for me, everything I wrote as a fledgling writer has disappeared from the internet (along with everything else that was published by SEE Magazine).

Food writing in Avenue Edmonton

I've done a number of pieces for Avenue Edmonton magazine in recent months, though I just realized I haven't shared them here.

The space is open and bright, with clean whitewashed walls... Continue Reading →
