You can’t blame me for not posting anything for the last month when the weather is this nice in Edmonton. As much as I love food, I enjoy taking a break from the computer once in awhile as well! Make sure you follow me on Instagram (@letsomnom) or Twitter (@cindurh) to see what I’m up to and what I’m eating!
Here’s a recap of what’s been happening since my last post, St. Albert’s Dig In Media Event and consequently a sneak peak on what’s to come on the blog (I promise!):
1. I’ve been spending more time at the City Market and Passion Sucrée, a local pastry vendor, will be up next! Cronuts, eclairs, galettes, macarons, oh my!
2. Don’t judge me, but I was never a big wine drinker. But I’m trying! Sherwood Park’s Everything Wine and More threw a Summer Solstice Party last month, giving me a chance to taste and learn about more wines.
3. Food photography! I’ve been learning tons from books, websites, forums, and videos. It’s more work than you think, but rapidly becoming one of my favorite hobbies.
4. Lee House, a well known Korean restaurant on Calgary Trail, is becoming a weekly staple for me and Joe.
5. I’m starting to cook more now that Joe has his own place, roommate free! I always feel uneasy cooking in somebody else’s kitchen (even my mother’s!) and Joe has given me the reins to his. Exceeeeeerrent.
6. I got to know some of Edmonton’s greatest foodies over dinner at Rae Mi Hyang, a new Korean-Chinese restaurant near Southgate.
7. After catching the Street Performers Festival, Joe and I headed on over to Tres Carnales for dinner, a rarity for me, although I really have no excuse. It’s so close to us!
8. Dinner at Loma Vegetarian House not only opened my eyes to a new restaurant, but also acquainting myself with some great new friends! This will be a first for LET’S OM NOM, a collaboration with freelance photographer Prasann Patel.
9. I got treated to TZiN Wine and Tapas again. Thanks Joe! This is the first time I can actually say my photos do the dishes (some) justice. There’s a reason why it’s one of my favorite restaurants: consistently delicious food and fantastic atmosphere.
10. And last but not least, I threw myself to the wolves this past weekend, making ramen from scratch with my friend Jody. And I mean from scratch. Broth, noodles, char siu, and ajitsuke tamago (egg). What a learning experience!
Stay tuned for the next few weeks! Hopefully I can power through everything and catch up!
