Shawn is a late convert to the health food industry and is now the proud owner of the Vital Planet Health Shop on Lakeshore Ave W in Toronto, ON, Canada. Shawn is working in the “front lines” as I like to call it. He is a common sense connection to the world of retail and people living day to day.
With years of experience in health food, critical discourse, politics of food and social experience, and a deep love for going back to the basics and making things from scratch (while listening to all her favourite new bands on the latest technology of course), Bridget is the detail enthusiast that keeps me grounded.
Currently owner of a yarn shop Needles in the Hay in Peterborough, Ontario.
This simple exotic chef from Toronto, down home gourmet is the only thing I can think of to describe what Jenn does in the kitchen. She is not afraid of a good wine, a cheap wine, anchovies, or onions. She takes a love of precision and inclusion to create tasty, mysterious, and nutritious masterpieces. She is a good balance for my “use as few ingredients as possible and make sure to only dirty up one pot” style. Yes, she will use Every dish in the house… while hoop dancing.
