It really is a small world.
When I was in Fès, Morocco in April, I was treated to an incredible dinner at an incredible restaurant which features chefs on sabbatical. And where were those chefs from? My old hometown of Ottawa!
These two chefs — Phoebe Oviedo and Oliver Truesdale-Jutras — are starting a new venture. Stovetrotter, which might bring them to a kitchen (or a fire pit) near you (yes, no matter where you are in the world!).
All the details are in the story I wrote for The Ottawa Citizen, the daily newspaper of Canada’s capital city (and republished in The Calgary Herald and The Edmonton Journal):
- Have Apron Will Travel (print version published October 29, 2015).
- Young Ottawa chefs Oliver Truesdale-Jutras and Phoebe Oviedo combine wanderlust with cooking (online version with more photos and a recipe, published October 28, 2015).
Are you travelling to Morocco? You really must dine at Restaurant Numéro 7 and Dar Roumana in Fès.
