So who were these wonderful ladies?
Christelle of ‘Christelle is Flabbergasting’ is a Paris to Montreal transplant, and a phenomenal writer, designer, and photographer. Don’t go to her website unless you have time to spare, because her recipes and food photos will draw you in. It’s the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
Janice, who was kind enough to help organize the Tweetup, is the blogger behind Kitchen Heals Soul, a great site for recipes of all kinds. She also happens to have a PhD in chemistry. Therefore, I trust her baking more than anyone’s, because she can actually tell me why my cake rose, fell, shrank, or exploded. I can barely spell the word science, let alone understand it, so I think that’s amazing.
Aimée is the mother of three adorable children and the beautiful blog Simple Bites, winner of Saveur magazine’s Best Kids’ Cooking Blog 2013 (whoa). From her home north of the city, Aimée shares recipes that everyone – not just kids - will want to eat. She invited us to come over for a jam swap she was hosting a few days later, and we happily accepted. That post up next….
If you’re visiting Montreal anytime soon, and especially if you’re a beer nerd, we highly recommend a visit to Dieu du Ciel. It’s guaranteed to be filled with reveling locals, and an ever-changing selection of brews.
