Blogging from the heart of downtown Halifax, I consider myself to be a “food nerd”  preoccupied with the busy task of food reconnaissance, research and investigation.

I also like a good party.

My main focus right now is running “Food Quests” to determine where the best food is by category, with my Halifax-wide Pizza Quest being one of the most popular.

I like to be attuned to what’s new and trendy, but I also wish to champion those old school classics we know, love, and take for granted. In general, I think authenticity trumps whimsy – but the best judge is always the test of time! More importantly, good food trumps all.

Future endeavors will involve food guides, video, and the fruits of my Canadian food research. I am interested in regional foods, especially Nova Scotian and Canadian foods by province/region. I am a food tourist at heart, and I look forward to doing more travelling and eating.
