Stephen Hui, the Georgia Straight web editor is coming to our journalism class at Langara College tomorrow. I discovered he is not only a reporter about a wide range of things such as technology and aboriginal issues. Hui also has a separate blog about eating vegan in Vancouver.
Some of my journalism colleagues are equally intrigued about food, agriculture, coffee places. Judy Chern just launched a new blog about locally grown exotic food and Tanya Hill’s blog New Agrarian City informs about sustainable urban farming, technology and food ideas.
That inspired me to reflect how often I read about local restaurants and deli stores, of which residential southwest Vancouver has plenty. You guessed it, apart from occasional PR-style articles in our local business improvement association’s newsletters, not that often.
As a new sidekick to my beat blog, I’d like to share my experiences as a food shopper, cook and restaurant patron with you. As I am an enthusiastic omnivore, I am looking forward to reading your tips and experiences.
