News - May 28th, 2012

It’s been a good month.

First, I began a new series of podcasts over at Passable, starting with a story about the resurgence in the art of butchery.

In other good news, Passable was recently honoured with a Best Local Food Blog prize from The Coast’s readers in their annual Best Of Food competition. Hooray!


I’m also still flexing my muscles over at The Coast, with two recent food articles, including one on the recent fad of Titanic-themed meals. The second was inspired by the recent Bluenose Marathon, where I asked: what do you eat when you’re in training?

Still in food, in late April, I had another piece published in OpenFile Halifax, this time asking about the importance (and difficulty) of anonymity amongst restaurant criticism.

Over at, I’ve had the occasion to write a couple of profiles on some interesting artists. The first is on Vincent Chevalier, whose work deals in questions of disclosure in the age of the internet. The second is about Graham Kolbeins, a multidisciplinarian who works in everything from blogging to curating to video editing. Check them both out, you won’t be sorry.

And one piece I am especially proud of was published in Halifax Magazine about the HFX 50, a project and list undertaken by a local entrepreneur who is more interested in social currency than financial ones.
