Eat North Variety Pack: Episode 18 airs August 6

Here's what to expect on this week's Variety Pack

We've got nothing but great conversations and good times coming your way with the next episode of Variety Pack. Returning panelist, food and travel writer Deepi Harish joins co-hosts Dan Clapson and Mairlyn Smith to discuss interesting food and drink news to kick things off.

Our first guest for this week's episode is Toronto-based food photographer and social media manager Cindy La. Cindy will chat with Dan and Deepi about her work with the Oliver and Bonacini restaurant group, growing up in Saskatchewan and offer up some tips for taking good food pictures at home. Next, Calgary bartender Kenton Hyrnyk of Annabelle's Kitchen will show off his Pride-themed cocktail as a part of our upcoming third annual Shake, Stir and Strainbow campaign in support of Skipping Stone Foundation. And yes, we'll share the recipe with you too.

Vancouver-raised, Nashville-based country singer Ajaye will swing by for a chat before closing out our show with a performance of her current single "Glorious Disaster".

Eat North Variety Pack airs weekly on Thursdays at 12 p.m. MDT (2 p.m. ET) on our Facebook page.
