I was lucky enough to grow up with a family cottage by a lake. And equally as lucky, about 20 minutes north of our cottage there’s a small town called Gimli, Manitoba. And this little lakeside town has an incredible history as an Icelandic settlement....the culture still thrives there today. It was here that I tried my first piece of Vinaterta: a delicately layered Icelandic celebration cake (hey, holidays!). It is a striking confection with its multiple light on dark lines of alternating almond or cardamom cookies stuckfast on deep, rich plum preserves (or jammy prunes if you’re feeling adventurous!). Whatever fruit you choose, this layer is typically flavoured with warm notes of vanilla, cardamom and cinnamon. Give me a slice of Vinaterta with a strong cup of coffee on a cool summer morning or a festive winter night and I’ll give you a big ol’ hug - and maybe invite you out to the lake!
I immediately fell in love with ceviche when I traveled to Peru. Upon arriving back home, even I made the dish for my friends! They were skeptical when I served them raw fish in a bowl and they asked, "So... now we cook it?".
For this illustration, I combined a recipe illustration showcasing the freshness of the food, with a map of my journey from my sketchbook.
I love all things Greek, but by far am most enamored with the isle of Hydra. Wheeled transportation is prohibited, so all travel on the tiny island is by foot, or donkey, with hundreds of languid local cats sunning themselves everywhere. The boats unload at the harbor straight to the restaurants, from sea to kitchen to your plate in an instant. The sun, the sea, the seafood, citrus from the trees, the air scented with flowers and food, the tables at street side cafes filled with artists, musicians and travelers, elbow to elbow. Hydra sates all the senses and is Heaven.
GLOBAL CUISINE - Here are a few festive cookies that would add much joy and deliciousness to any holiday celebration! So many to choose from across the world - but these from Sweden, Italy and Austria caught my eye (and tummy).
We are fortunate to have recipes and food available to us from many different cultures. From Mexico, we can enjoy tortillas, tacos and fajitas. Who can resist Italian food such as Lasagna, Ravioli and pasta? Then from China, we get won ton soup, stir fried rice and orange chicken. And these delicious foods cannot be made without SPICES.
Do you also have a cabinet full of hot sauce jars, tubs and tubes? Sometimes I panic not knowing which one I want to use. These are just some of the tasty spicy sauces I've tried. What about you? Do you have a favorite?

An illustrated compendium of (a few) global curries, ranging from India, Thailand, Japan, Kenya, and Indonesia. The formula of an excellently cooked protein in a spicy sauce with a side of rice (or naan) is a multinational pleasure.
Global Cuisine, Feast of the Seven Fishes is an Italian-American tradition on Christmas Eve. A large meatless meal is common in Italy, but the Italian Americans gave it a theme of 7 Fishes. There are no rules on what dishes make up the seven, just lots of seafood!

Global Cuisine -- The heat of Indian food... the sweetness of French pastries... the bite of wasabi... how exciting it is to be able to dine from so many cuisines. I could never pick a favorite. Where I live, we have an abundance of global restaurants so I can try something new almost every night!
To be honest, I've never been to the Kentucky Derby and the last time I watched a race was during the Secretariat era. However, the rocking horse mounted to the rooftop was a family tradition. We named the horse "Fast Eddie", but he proudly displayed a license plate bearing Nonnie's name, so I named Fast Eddie's dream horses in her honor. While each iteration of the horse hopes for just a little bit more, the jockey has thoughts only for a traditional Kentucky Derby buffet.
