Stratford Chefs School Announces New Writer In Residence

The Stratford Chefs School has announced Lucy Waverman’s appointment as the Joseph Hoare Gastronomic Writer in Residence for the 2014-15 school year. As one of Ontario’s favorite culinary personalities, Lucy is a natural choice for the celebrated Chefs School. Lucy appears regularly on television and radio shows including 12 years with CityTV’s CityLine. Her Wednesday food column “Weekend Menu,” and Saturday column “Fresh Tastes” appears weekly in The Globe and Mail, Canada’s national newspaper — and she is the food editor of one of our favorite local loving magazine’s, LCBOs Food & Drink. She is the author of eight award winning cookbooks, including the Gold Medal for A Matter of Taste, which she co-wrote with friend and fellow wine writer, James Chatto. Her new book written with fellow Globe Wine and Spirits columnist Beppi Crosariol “The Flavour Principle” is already an award winner. As if that wasn’t enough, in 2005, she was presented with the Gold Award in Food Media/Journalism by the Ontario Hostelry Association for her efforts in mentoring young talent and for educating the public about cooking. Lucy’s knowledge and expertise as a celebrated author, editor, columnist and teacher highlighted her as a top candidate for the GWIR Selection Committee and culminated in her unanimous appointment as this year’s Writer in Residence. We can’t wait to see what she cooks up during the 2014-2015 year in partnership with the award winning Stratford Chefs School!
