My name is Ann (with several variations: Ana, Annie, Anusha, Ania…I respond to all of it!) and this blog is all about my love affair with food. All my life I have always been drawn to the joys of eating and cooking. As a kid, I have always hovered around grown-ups whilst they prep and cook, enjoying how cooking could be so simple and complex at the same time. Despite the countless oil spatters, accidental burns on my little fingers as I reached out for a not-so-cold baking tin or cookie sheet, I took it all in stride as I happily cooled down my burns on leftover cookie batter :D
I have always been curious and adventurous to try another remarkable food experience. My move from Manila to Toronto expanded my palate immensely. The culinary diversity of my chosen Canadian city gives so many surprises, learnings and of course, tastings! I have been based in Toronto for a decade and I doubt I have exhausted every possible foodie road trip nor every Toronto eats. Such is a daunting task nevertheless a task I am very much willing to take. Just the thought of the pleasure of feeling a homey contentment at the smell of a slow-cooked stew, the slow burn of my palate at each helping of Indian Spinach Curry they call Palak Paneer or the warm assurance of a Polish blueberry pierogi is enough incentive to make me pack up and head to my next foodie destination. These experiences are so vivid in my mind and I am in search for more to relish.
These days you can find me run around Toronto trying out new and old restaurants and queue up with other foodies at numerous Toronto food events. I have started my own food photography business with Abraham Wornovitzky that is EyeCandyTO. My world majorly revolves around food and I love every minute of it. :)
I welcome any comments and suggestions to what I should add to my blog. If you want to take the conversation offline, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
