    Episode 7 - Menu Terms With Jan Whitaker

    23/01/2016 Duração: 18min

    Joe speaks with restaurant blogger, Jan Whitaker who gives some insight into the career of Chef Joseph Cancel's. “I know you like to cook and that you like old stuff...” That’s all Joe's dad said as he handed him a small, black, very well worn, leather bound book . The book, Cancel's Ready Reference of Menu Terms, written by Chef Joseph Gancel, has been in the Pavia family since 1913. It was around that time that Joe's grandfather and great-uncle travelled across the Atlantic to the United States to pursue careers as chefs in some of the restaurants of Boston. Whitaker has researched and written many articles about the restaurant industry in the U.S and published an article on Cancel in 2012. Jan's work can be found via this web address: Photos of the book Menu Terms can be found on Joe's website

  • Episode 3 - In search of the perfect Christmas tree

    Episode 3 - In search of the perfect Christmas tree

    08/12/2015 Duração: 09min

    For as long as Joe can remember his family has cut down their Christmas tree. Every year, usually the day it opens, they trek to Benjamin Tree Farm north of Waterloo, Ontario to find the tree that will decorate their house for the season. Benjamin is one of just over 2 thousand cut your own farms in Canada. According to 2011 numbers from Statistics Canada most of these farms are located in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia. They would cut down their tree in late November which means the tree would be up for at least 6 weeks. Two things can happen when it's up for that long. It'll either die and start shedding needles. Or it'll start sprouting buds. During one of their traditional family trips Joe brought along a microphone and recording device to capture the sounds of the search.
