My First #Aquafabulous Public Appearance!
It’s been a while since my last Cookbook update. That’s not because there has been nothing happening. Lots is happening. In fact, I worked all through the Christmas break. It’s just that what’s been happening is not the sexy part of writing a cookbook. It is long hours in front of the computer in MS Word, tracking changes, substituting the word “great” for other synonyms (I use the word “great” waaaay too much), it’s emails criss-crossing the country via cyberspace several times per day.
We are editing. It is not glamorous. It’s work. It’s salt-mines stuff. It needs to be done, and the book will be better for it, but it’s not a process that comes naturally to me, so I’ve been in “nose to the grindstone” mode for these last couple of months. Keeping my head down, one step in front of the other, one edit at a time.
The good news is, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. We are now into edits on the last few chapters and hope to be done entirely within the next couple of weeks.
In some much more exiting news, the photo shoot for “Aquafabulous” is happening in Toronto next week! Earlier in the month, we established the 19 recipes that will be shot for the book–a range of everything from breakfast to dessert. I wish I could be there–it would be an amazing experience to see my recipes come to life at the hands of an expert stylist.
In other exciting news, I’ll be doing a live cooking demo, featuring a recipe from the book on Sunday, March 5 at 10:30 am at The Wellness Show. The celebrity cooking stage features some of my cooking heros–Tojo, Sarah Stewart, Curtis Luk–and li’l ol me.
If there's one thing I love, it's waffles. So when I found out it was #nationalwaffleday, well I just had to celebrate with these crispy cornbread waffles, topped with BBQ pulled jackfruit & maple syrup. #wafflelove #vegan #whatveganseat #aquafaba #food #yummy #foodporn #instafood #delicious #foodie #eat #foodgasm #foodpic #cooking #omnomnom #yvrfood #yvrfoodie #FBCIgers #eeeeats #foodie #foodblogger #foodphotography #comfortfood #bbq #waffles #savorywaffle
I’ll be making my Cornbread Waffles with Vegan Pulled Pork, Blueberry BBQ Sauce and Bourbon Maple Syrup. Yeah!! Hope to see some of you there.
That’s it for now, but I’ll update you when the edits are completely finished. I’m learning so much, and I can’t wait to share that with you.
Thank you again for all your kind words and your wonder-bra like support, friends. I seriously couldn’t have done this without you.
