If you thought pop-up restaurants were just another food trend, you might need to reconsider. The pop-up dining trend is alive and well. In a world over-saturated with food trends and trendy foods, pop-ups are unique dining experiences that give diners a chance to try something new and to find those one-of-a-kind culinary adventures. They’re also a great way for chefs to showcase their talents, create buzz and can often provide a launching pad for new restaurants. So beings the story of Salz, a sausage and beer hall set to open in Edmonton in the late fall.


Going Whole Hog

A couple of months ago my friend Tommy began planning Going Whole Hog.  A southern themed festival of food.  With the help of several local chefs and restaurant owners, including The Local Omnivore, S’wich, Effing Seafood and Clementine (to name a few), the created the North Carolina Whole Hog BBQ menu that I can only describe as epic.  Included in this feast was a whole pig (roasted 22 hours), smoked oysters, collard greens, hush puppies and all of the sides and fixings you can imagine including a Carolina BBQ sauce that was everything a BBQ sauce should be. Above are some of the pictures of the event taken by my wonderful and talented boyfriend ( Parties like this are few and far between, so I am always grateful when I get to attend them.   Here’s to good friends and good food.   Sincerely, Chrissy
