Who’s Nikki? O.o

So, if you’ve come to this “About Me” section of my blog, you’re obviously wondering “who is this pretty girl that’s filling my computer screen with tasty recipes, and random pictures of stuff that I want to eat?” That is a valid curiosity… Allow me to put it to rest! I’ll keep it simple the best way I know how:

This recipe serves 1 dog, and a bunch of friends and family. Please note: Nikki is a vegan dish with no dairy, eggs, fish, or meat, and sometimes she is served up raw.

  1. Thanks for your kind comments Nikki.
    The Red Hot Festival was very successful for me, perhaps because I had two products that were not furiously hot and was the only booth offering substantial free sampling.
    I also noticed a great many visitors had stumbled upon the food festival just from strolling in the area, and even with the Red Hot tent metres away from my booth, didn’t realize they were in the midst of a food festival at all.
    I think promotion, signage and membership could be greatly improved with a better effort from the organizers.
    The cost of having a booth was very reasonable at $525 for four days so I hope more food startups make the effort.
    At least this event isn’t covered in corporate sponsorship, (yet) like many of the so called gourmet fairs, like the Wine and Cheese show are, with major commercial interests like Pizza Pizza or Hyundai having the largest square foot exhibits.
    The next event you will want to be sure to attend is the Gourmet Food and Wine Expo in the Metro Convention Centre in .http://www.foodandwineshow.ca/sitepages/
    Again quite a few overexposed companies with mainstream products, but also some interesting restaurant offerings and artisan beer and Niagara wineries. ( that event is super expensive to exhibit at BTW) I’ll be there offering the endive with cream cheese, cranberry and pecan drizzled with pomegranate balsamic, and also with a new sku, a Blueberry-Blackpepper vinegar.
    Cheers, and keep up the good work!

  2. You’re very welcome, and thank YOU for the amazing products you promoted at the festival! 🙂
    I did notice that too, that there was very little advertising for the festival this year. It is unfortunate…
    $525 doesn’t seem too bad at all for the weekend, especially considering it’s a prime location. I know that if I was ever finally at the level of being able to package and sell any sauces that I make, I would definitely find a way to do that…
    And very true, seeing a huge Pizza Pizza sign, or signs everywhere for Smirnoff may not have been the most appealing thing, no body likes having all of that corporate stuff thrown in their face constantly. Even though these bigger companies are big for a reason, it’s nice to be able to go and be surrounded by new up-and-coming products, and meet the creators of these products face-to-face.

    I will check out the information for that Food and Wine Expo for sure! Nothing is better with gourmet food than a great bottle of wine. 🙂
