A Bit of Information
Hi there! Don’t worry, you’re in the right place. This blog used to be known as Eating Niagara, written by me, Tiffany Mayer, but it’s undergone a bit of a makeover.
About the New Website: Grub by Eating Niagara
You'll find my latest blog posts and recipes here, along with links to my food writing published elsewhere. I seem to be doing more of that lately and I realize a lot of it may interest you. This space provides me with a better way to share it.
Why the change?
Eating Niagara was good to me. I still have a regular column in the local dailies that goes by that name and it's still how people on social media know me. But after eight and a half years, it was time for a change that allowed me to more comfortably explore food beyond the peninsula's borders and share it without feeling like I was going "off-brand" as the kids call it today. Grub by Eating Niagara felt like a natural evolution.
About Me: Tiffany Mayer
So now for some background about me and what led me to food blogging in the first place.
I spent eight years as a daily news reporter. Most of that time was devoted to covering agriculture. Since leaving the newsroom, I continue to feed my love of all things food and farming through freelancing and with this website, which I launched in its first incarnation in 2009.
My first book, Niagara Food: A Flavourful History of the Peninsula's Bounty was published by The History Press in 2014. It's a love letter to Niagara, which has been my personal and professional muse for more than a decade now.
In addition to my column that runs in the local papers, I also write for/have written for Vines, WestJet Magazine, Lifetime Daily, The Hamilton Spectator, Edible Toronto, The Toronto Star, Edible Buffalo, The Western Producer, Niagara Life Magazine, Biz Magazine, and the Culture Trip.
Every two weeks on Tuesdays, Tom McConnell shares the airwaves with me on 610 CKTB. No surprise, we talk about food. Some of my recipes have been featured on Food52.com, greenbeltfresh.ca, National Kale Day Cooks and on The Food Network website. The Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance named this blog's former incarnation as one of its Ontario Food Blogs We Love in 2014.
