Cooking with the Little Locavore

Cooking with Friends

November has been so busy for me, but even when I travel, I try and make some time to cook!

Thanks to my friends in different cities for letting me into their kitchens!

Ned Bell x Chef's Plate

Lucky to call Chef Ned Bell one of my friends and food mentors! 
He is the head Chef at the Vancouver Aquarium and as well works with Ocean Wise.

Long-time sustainable seafood ambassador Ned Bell is the Ocean Wise executive chef based at the Vancouver Aquarium. Bell’s cooking philosophy is globally inspired and locally created. His love of sport, travel and adventure have taken him around the world, creating memorable experiences and cooking up a storm along the way.

With the support of the Ocean Wise seafood program, Bell founded Chefs for Oceans in 2014 to raise awareness about sustainable seafood by riding his bike across Canada. Bell’s dedication to sustainable seafood has inspired many Canadian chefs to get involved in the cause – a movement that is having a meaningful impact on the way consumers think about the seafood they eat, where it comes from and how they, too, can help protect our oceans by making ocean-friendly seafood choices. -OCEAN WISE


This month Chef Ned partnered to create a dish for Chef's Plate!

Of course I had to order it and create it at home myself!

The dish is an Ocean Wise Shrimp Linguini. Chef's plate delivers all the ingredients and instructions, and all you have to do is follow along!
