Emma Waverman and Phil Wilson kick off this week’s episode of the More Than Maple Syrup podcast with a brand-new segment called “What’s in a Name?” The duo are joined by Fifendekel owner Jacquie Fenske, who, as the series’ title suggests, provides an origin story for the uniquely-named restaurant.
Next, Waverman and Wilson jump into the main topic of this week’s episode, International Women’s Day. After our hosts briefly discuss the state of equality in Canada’s culinary scene, we hear from a prolific panel of Canadian women, who each give a shout-out to the women who’ve impacted them the most.
Finally, Eat North co-founder Dan Clapson joins the booth remotely from Saskatoon, where he chats with Wall of Chefs celebrity judge and The Hollows and Primal chef-owner, Christie Peters about her stage at Noma, the Prairie food scene, and the importance of International Women’s Day.
The More Than Maple Syrup podcast is available to stream and subscribe on all major podcast services, including Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and Stitcher.
