FBC Members are becoming down right prolific with their book writing! And we couldn't be happier to see so much writing talent making the leap to print. This week, we celebrate another book launch - this time it's Ottawa Food - A Hungry Capital. And we have some copies to give away!
If you have spent much time on the Canadian food blogging scene then you will absolutely be aware of the dynamic duo of Don Chow and Jen Lim from Ottawa, better known as FoodiePrints! If a trip to Ottawa is in the works then you need to stop by their blog. In no time at all you will have a list of suggestions on where to eat as long as your arm and will be considering a second trip.
We've been working with Don & Jen as part of our Restaurant Roundup Crew since it's inception and we know they know their stuff. So it was no surprise to find out that they had a book in the works about our capital's food scene.
Here's a taste of what you'll find in Ottawa Food - A Hungry Capital:
During the past 20 years the food scene in Ottawa has changed from a landscape of pub grub-driven dining to a vibrant environment for trendy eateries and forward-thinking chefs. The once bland and mundane culinary culture has been transformed, and the result is an array of destination restaurants and purveyors of high-quality food and drink products. Many of these new and successful players leverage the nearby farms — nearly 2,000 in total — and artisan food makers that can provide a huge range of ingredients and possibilities.
Ottawa Food - A Hungry Capital officially goes on sale on October 11th but thanks to Don & Jen and the kind folks at Dundurn Press (the same team that recently released Tiffany Mayer's new book, Niagara Food: A Flavourful History of the Peninsula's Bounty!) we have 5 copies to give away.
