On this week’s episode of Variety Pack, hosts Dan Clapson and Mairlyn Smith are joined by panelist Carmen Cheng to discuss the latest happenings in Canadian food news along with their favourite holiday trends and more before our guests start to arrive.
First up, Top Chef Canada alumnus, Fire Masters judge, and chef/owner of Butchie’s Restaurant, Andrea Nicholson, will stop by for a candid chat about the state of Canada’s hospitality industry and why it’s important to shop local.
Next, our hosts will be joined by CBC Edmonton on-air expert and food writer Twyla Campbell to share some of her favourite locally-produced holiday offerings as well as how drastically Christmas dinner plans have changed this year as a result of the pandemic.
Eat North Variety Pack airs weekly on Thursdays at 7 p.m. MDT (9 p.m. ET) on our Facebook page.
