It only seems appropriate that I bombard y’all with photos of pie (again if you already follow me on twitter/instagram) on pi day. To be honest though, pi day was the furthest thing on my mind when I asked A and JP if they wanted to get together and bake some pies. I was just hoping to lower the cost per use on my Breville mini pie maker!
When I first started branching out and meeting people in the Edmonton food community, one of the very first events I went to was Eat Alberta. I had an amazing time in all my hands on sessions and have definitely used some of the skills I learned over the past year. This year, I am going to be attending Eat Alberta again, but as a volunteer – I am very excited to be contributing to the event in a more tangible way.
P.S. Please come and say hi (I hope to continue meeting lots of new people this year too!).
Williams-Sonoma finally opened up an Edmonton location in West Edmonton Mall on Saturday, September 22! I was lucky enough to be invited to get a sneak peek a few days before the grand opening. I am a huge lover of kitchen gadgets and whenever I am in Calgary, heading to the Williams-Sonoma in Chinook mall is a must, so I am beyond delighted that we finally have one 15 minutes away! I had a great time with a bunch of Edmonton’s awesomest bloggers oohing and aahing over everything in the store. I think there were a lot of wish lists being made on the spot and there was definitely disappointment that the tills were not up and running just yet.
Obviously, I am a bit late mentioning this but there are several demos and tastings going on during the grand opening weekend (there is still today), so if you have some (or a lot of) time – just pop down to West Edmonton Mall and visit Williams-Sonoma on the second floor across from the Apple store (closest entrance is entrance #9). In the near future, the store will also offer technique classes such as knife skills and other fun events, so keep an eye out on the website for more details.
