Hi! We’re Lindsay & Mike – a husband and wife team who just really really love to eat. And as you can tell from the photo above, two people who really don’t take ourselves too seriously (I do really need to find a new photo of the two of us).
Over the years, our love of food has turned into a love of cooking (and Lindsay’s love of taking photos of her food). This eventually turned into sharing our favourite recipes with you and the rest of the internet. Although Mike is perfectly content to have the same sandwich for lunch every day, Lindsay can’t even meal plan because she is always wanting to mix it up and explore where her taste buds take her. Consequently, we love trying new foods, recipes and techniques. That being said – one thing always stands, simplicity.
Like most people who have day jobs, we recognize that time and energy are finite and there is only so much time for cooking. So, we always strive to bring you recipes that are both easy and delicious – cause why make it harder than it has to be?
So welcome to our little blog – stay, explore a while and let us know how you like some of the things we are cooking up.
Hi, I’m Lindsay.
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 – and 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!
the Beer Lover
Hi, I’m Mike.
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 600 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. Cheers!
