untitled-2

Wine enthusiast, Ericka Wicks, and I go to a Nova Scotia vineyard, Domaine de Grand Pré, to talk about and taste Canadian wine. Is wine that was not produced in France even a thing? Is it ok to drink wine that comes in a box? What should you eat next time you’re having wine? Can we sample three different wines and not get a little buzzed? Listen to this episode and find out!

My guest Michael (in Vancouver, BC) and I (in Halifax, NS) go coast to coast and talk about driving across Canada. We discuss bad roads, sleeping in your car, road trip food and music, survival technics and scary diners. Oh, and the world’s largest chainsaw and the world’s largest lobster. Literally.

Slowly Becoming Canadian The Podcast – Episode 04 – Canadian food

Food 2

Fellow pub food enthousiast Heather and I sit down to enjoy a very Canadian meal and discuss (mostly late night) food etiquette. The menu might not be the healthiest but it’s delicious: Caesar (the drink, obviously, not the salad), donair (Halifax’s new official food), poutine and Timbits. We also talk about nachos, BBQ, lobster, and of course maple syrup.

You can also listen to the episode on iTunes.

Bon appétit!
