Jennie is a recent graduate of the Culinary Innovation and Food Technology program at Niagara College. She always see the world through food; from feeding troops on military exercises as an army reserves cook to developing the next innovative product and learning different food and beverage trends. She experiences every aspect of it and enjoys telling people about it through conversations and writing. If she’s not cooking up a storm, she’s likely at fencing practice talking about food in each bouts and claims no responsibility for making anyone hungry afterwards (sorry not sorry).
