our little blog
Welcome to our little food blog of delicious recipes, tips & tricks. What started out as a little hobby has grown into a passion for giving people the means to have a full love-affair with food (and eating!).
We’re all about providing straight forward and easy-to-follow recipes for beginner to intermediate cooks looking to up their cooking game, impress guests and venture into everyday gourmet cooking. Simple but delicious appetizers, mains, sides and desserts will help you bring your everyday meals from ordinary to extraordinary and give you the ability to easily create “fancy” dishes that are sure to wow crowds at your next dinner party.
In our cooking ventures, we have also expanded to work with companies on recipes for their products – like Big Rock Brewery, where we create pairings and recipes with their beers and ciders. You never know where your next cooking inspiration might come from! You can find them all here.
Hi! My name is Lindsay and I love all things food, wine and beer (because who doesn’t?).
I have been fortunate enough to have parents’ who love to cook gourmet food. Consequently, I love to eat and have been taught to always analyze recipes in order to strive for better results.
Our family loves to cook, eat and entertain. We believe that the best meals start with good drinks, delicious food and close friends. It is that belief that drives my passion for food.
What started as being my parents’ dessert chef has grown into a full love affair with food and passion for cooking. Thanks to my parents’ encouragement, countless dinner parties, plentiful tips, tricks, gadgets and recipes; I have written a cookbook, started a food blog and look for new recipes, techniques and ideas at every turn.
I started this blog with a simple goal: give people the means to love cooking as much as I do, with recipes, tips and tricks straight from my kitchen. The best recipes are easy, delicious and always impress guests (even when they’re simple!).
I hope this blog inspires your passion for food as well. Here’s to good wine (and beer!), good food and good friends! Cheers!
Hi, I’m Mike, and I’m (probably) the odd one on the blog.
Since Lindsay started working on Wine, Food & Friends back in 2014 I’ve been supporting behind the scenes, sacrificing myself as the guinea pig to the cause, valiantly trying recipes that make it onto the blog (I’m a very well fed guinea pig).
In addition to being the resident taste tester and sous chef on occasion, I’m also a lover of craft beer. I’ve tried over 400 different beers across multiple countries (from Canada, to Brazil to New Zealand). I can say with certainty that offering somebody a beer is great way to make friends, regardless of whether you speak the language or understand the culture.
And so, from my passion for beer and Lindsay’s love of food came the Wine, Food & Friends of today, where we’re always looking for complements between plate and glass. Here’s to a collective love of craft beverages and good food. The universal medium for bringing people together. We hope you enjoy the blog.
