Adventures along the New Year’s Levee trail

I’m Dining Out Here
by Andrew Sprague

Levee Day 2018 was supposed to be a less boisterous affair. It happened on a Monday, after all. Surely some people would stay home for fear of the cold and a long Tuesday at work. But not only were this year’s levees well attended, the crowd is changing, and a new guard is forming that will help ensure one of

The Sunset Limited

McFadden2 

Review by Sean McQuaid 

Two McFaddens enter, one leaves. Not as grimly gladiatorial as it sounds, but still an accurate summary of the spectacle on offer at The Guild this January, where accomplished father-son acting duo William and Corin McFadden starred in AMS Entertainment’s production of The Sunset Limited, directed by Mahdi Selseleh.

School Break
Profile: Nikkie Gallant

by Jane Ledwell

Nikkie Gallant had been out of school for ten years when she went back in 2008. Her last award-winning singer-songwriter album came out in 2005.

The New Creative

New fitness rowing studio in Charlottetown

New Year, new me. The same as last year and the year before, right? All of us vow to get in better shape in the New Year, but rather than overwhelming yourself with promises to reach a goal weight or to eat better, how about just have fun and try something new. 

A new fitness boutique opened up this past summer

How I Learned to Cook: Ilona Daniel

Ilona Daniel is a great ambassador for PEI food, a cooking instructor, a Ms. Fix-it for restaurants looking for help with their menus. She is as beautiful and exotic as her food. But, as she explains, her beginnings in the kitchen were humble.

“I guess it’s a bit of a cliché, but I learned to cook from my mother. When I was three or four she would sit me on the kitchen counter so I could watch

Writing about food

Writing about food

by Ann Thurlow

I started writing for The Buzz in 2007. I said I would do it for ten years. I have just realized that anniversary slipped by with me realizing it. But a promise is a promise so I’m going to call it quits.

The reason I didn’t notice is probably because I’ve been having a lot of fun. A few years ago, Buzz editor Peter Richards gave me a chance to write about food. I love writing about

What a good idea

Prince Edward Island Sea Salt Company

Chow
by Ann Thurlow

What are the chances that two guys would come up with the idea for a salt business at roughly the same time? Or let’s put it another way—why has it taken so long for anyone to refine the idea of harvesting some of the salt in all the water that surrounds us?

A couple of years ago, Darren Blanchard started a company called Black Whale, where

Needles and cones
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

The winter solstice has come and gone. We’re on the up-swing now! As the sun rises higher in the sky, every day grows a little longer. Thanks to everyone in the countryside who put up colored lights for the holidays. What a lift they give us during this darkest time of the year. I suppose they wouldn’t be such a treat if they were up all year.

The same holds
