My name is Amy and I am a self-confessed Greedy Guts. I am assuming that if you are reading this blog then you too, like me, love food.
Originally from Australia, I have spent 12 of my 36 years travelling and living in different countries. Throughout all of these places, the one thing that has followed me is my constant love and excitement for food. I love nothing more than stumbling across great restaurants, cafés, or markets in new and exciting cities. I now happily reside in beautiful Vancouver, Canada, with my husband “B”.
I can often be found drooling over glossy cookbooks and food magazines, at foodie events and new restaurants, and in the kitchen, baking or cooking (or just making a mess). I created this blog in an effort to share my culinary experiences with you and hopefully, you will enjoy reading it and perhaps try a few of the reviewed places or recipes yourself.
My goal is to be fair when reviewing an establishment. For local establishments I make an effort to return a number of times before reviewing it in order to give it a fair and unbiased review. The way I see it is that sometimes places have off days. That off day shouldn’t be all I base my review on. I’ll leave the one-time judgments to the others. I’d rather focus on sharing good places with you so I do try to focus on the positives rather than the negatives. Unfortunately, time (and money) doesn’t allow me to return numerous times to non-Vancouver establishments so those are usually one time reviews.
For the record, the recipes that I post on my blog are NOT recipes that I’ve created myself. I review recipes and add tips to them but I don’t claim to have created any of the recipes on my blog. Unless otherwise stated, I pay my own way. If I do so happen to be lucky enough to be invited to an event for free, I will tell you. Also, in order to preserve the genuine dining experience, I try to remain as discrete as possible when going to a restaurant.
I hope you enjoy reading and please feel free to send any suggestions or feedback my way!
