Host Amie Watson chats with Alexandra Gill about how she’s been writing about and reviewing restaurants in recently reopened Vancouver. They also chat farmers, supply chains and what percentage of Canadian restaurants she expects will make it through Covid. They also chat about unexpected upsides, like increased elbow space.
The 5à7 Podcast is a series of happy hour conversations with cool people. They’re based around food, but guests go beyond chefs and restaurant owners to artists, entrepreneurs and other inspiring people you might have heard of.
