Glassie Spotto: Omigod! Wendos! In Bega!!…

30 01 2010

Darlings!! What can we tells ya – there we were in the Niagra Café, grabbing a quick takeaway cappuccino (double shot) when there was a tap on the shoulder…and there was dearest Wendos!! Out of the blue. Serious excitements – except that we were in the middle of the two day New Black  mentoring workshop, and were about to drive a busload of very cool dudes out to Penders for the second day of the program. So it was a serious bummer, cos we could only spend 5 mins max before we had to roll-’em-out-move-’em-on-rawhide (Megsie was driving the bus, lookout.)

But oh! how wonderful to see her (pictured above with Michael and her main Canadian squeeze, Andrew), if only for a nanosecond.

Come back soon, Wendos!! We loves ya.





Yummy, another delicious food blog…

…to feed our boundless appetite…

and delay, yet again, our tragically constant  resolution to start a diet on Monday.

Wendos, now back in Montreal, has just sent through the details of the food blog, www.eatpress.com, she’s launched with her main-squeeze Andrew. Featuring guest contributers, today’s special edition is headlined by none other than lovely Timmy and his fabulous Gingerbread house.

Great looking bloggo, Wendos, and we particularly applaud the ‘recession files’  – though we were interested to see that it’s pretty much what we chow down on even in boom times!! And the tucker-in-season advice is nicely inclusive, with updates supplied for both hemispheres.

The thing we most like about food blogs is that they connect you in an intimate, homely way with the folks that write them. Take Zoe’s, for instance – where we almost feel that we’re sitting at her kitchen table, shelling the peas and smelling the rose water. By the end of the post it’s as close as you can get to dining with her on a regular basis – a virtual dinner party, no dishes, no hangover. Win-win all round.

We’re looking forward to dropping in to Wendos and Andrew’s place – to sup and hang, and see how the Canadian half live…

We thought we’d spread a little visual happiness and brighten your day with a symphony of  Wendy Meyen’s contemporary chandeliers.

Wendos, of course, has now settled into her studio at ANCA, Dickson, and it’s always lovely to run into her around the traps (in between those hops abroad, that is – she’s not long back from Japan…)

We’ll visit her in her lair sometime soon, and take some workshop snaps…
