Traditional cheesemaking using modern knowledge and technologies
Julia Graham is a self-made woman. With no chef’s training, the psychology and gerontology grad ran a catering company with her sister, then taught a wildly successful cooking class in the local high school. The mother of two is now busy introducing the 3,000 residents of Alexandria, halfway between Ottawa and Montreal, to the joys of kale, quinoa and immune-system-boosting juices from the open kitchen of her friendly cafe. The Quirky Carrot is where the warmth of hospitality and the flavours of local come together. They are a cafe, cookery school and catering company.
