Emma Waverman and Phil Wilson are back in the More Than Maple Syrup booth after an eventful June, highlighted by Robyn MacLean’s daily dose of Canadian food facts. The co-hosts recap their favourite moments, reveal the facts that were new to them, and add a couple of interesting facts of their own. 

After a brief discussion on Canada’s rising food costs, the duo delve into the changing dynamics of the 2019 World's 50 Best Restaurants List and its correlation to the restaurant industry’s ongoing gender imbalance as a whole. 

Finally, in anticipation of October’s Devour! The Food Film Fest, Waverman chats with the event’s headliner, Lidia Bastianich. The iconic restaurateur and bestselling author offers our hosts a bit of insight into her upcoming trip to Nova Scotia, her thoughts on women in the restaurant business, and the importance of cooking with heart and soul.
