Sugar and Spice and Everything Niece

My Edmonton-born niece K. has been visiting her home town since late last week. She’s currently living in New Zealand and will be returning there in a few weeks. In the meantime, we’re having a great time hanging out – and food is often involved.

Macaron madness at Duchess Bakery.

We’ll be back, oh yes we will.

At the Strathcona Farmer’s Market, K. is fascinated by “fractal cauliflower”

which is what I call Roman cauliflower (it’s also called Romanesco broccoli).

Shopping at the Italian Centre

for fixin’s for “scratch” pizza.

We also made granola and a lovely dinner at her grandparent’s house last night, including squash and cabbage soup, roasted beets, a perfectly cooked elk roast and maple baked apples.

I’m going to try to get her to blog about food in New Zealand and her recent trip to Japan.

More to come.

  1. You have been busy! I started drooling when I saw your duchess delights. You must convince K. to blog about her culinary adventures on the other side of the world. We will have to meet up sometime this weekend to catch up on all things us.
