    The resurgence of ‘foraging’ and why its good for local food security, business and your soul - Vancouver - Canada's Podcast

    The resurgence of ‘foraging’ and why its good for local food security, business and your soul - Vancouver - Canada's Podcast

    There’s been a resurgence of the commitment to "local food security" and with it a growing number of businesses foraging for food. The practice of hand gathering plants and animals for bait, money or the table has long taken place, but more recently top chefs have been popularising the idea, urban foragers have told of the lengths they go to find wild food in big cities, while rural foragers have access to an abundance of wild food...if you know what to look for.


    But why, in an age where most things we want or need are only a few clicks away, do many seek the thrill of finding their own food? Why do local commercial gatherers choose to pursue these ancient livelihoods when there are less arduous alternative careers?


    In today’s Podcast, Angela Faye speaks with Celia & Benjamin – a couple-preneur that has followed their hearts from France to Australia to Canada to follow their calling to provide greater education and access to Wild Food!


    Collectively, Celia and Benjamin have formal educations in sustainable business development & administration, biology and agroforestry, plus lived experience as contract fruit pickers. Caring deeply for people and social justice, they advocated for fruit pickers' rights, leading to the creation of a platform known as "Pick the World". And, they knew their next venture would involve caring for the environment while integrating a sustainable business model. A true equilibrium between their passion for the wilderness and an opportunity to focus on an emerging market in the ‘food business’ led them to the creation of Forest For Dinner (http://www.forestfordinner.ca), providing foraging experiences, education and product harvesting and value-added boutique manufacturing, thanks in part to being part of a local Food Hub.

    The Secret to Longevity in the food service industry with Stone Yu - Toronto - Canada's Podcast

    The Secret to Longevity in the food service industry with Stone Yu - Toronto - Canada's Podcast

    Stone Yu is the CEO of Lucullus Bakery, a family-owned business currently operating 3 locations in the Greater Toronto Area. At 25 years old, he represents an exciting new generation of leadership in the food service industry.


    The young entrepreneur has dedicated much of his life to the Lucullus brand. A child of Chinese immigrant parents, Stone grew up in Richmond Hill and spent most of his after-school hours studying the ins and out of the family bakery. He learned budgeting and inventory management from his parents, and recipe development and baking methods from the amazingly talented Hong Kong chefs his family employed. In 2016 at just 21 years old, Stone entered into Food Network Canada’s Doughnut challenge and won, proving his years of experience in the kitchen were paying off. At 22 he enrolled in a culinary program at Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa Culinary Arts Institute where he spent 6 months honing his craft before returning to work for Lucullus.


    Stone’s vision, creative spirit, and tenacious pursuit of excellence in all areas of the business have propelled the brand forward in a big way. Lucullus opened its first location in 1990, closely followed by the 2rd location in 1991 in Richmond Hill. Lucullus has recently been expanding, opening its 3rd location in downtown Markham in 2017 and has plans for two locations in 2021. The idea of franchising the business has always been on the table (not far from the pineapple buns). After years of planning, in October of 2020 the company bought 2.3 acres in Scarborough to build its head office and production facility. Lucullus will now offer franchise opportunities.


    Stone attributes the bakery’s 30-year success to its high standards for quality ingredients, artistic detail, and traditional baking techniques. Lucullus offers simple, classic Asian food and drink items that feel nostalgic and gourmet at the same time, appealing to both older and younger generations in the communities they serve. The bakery team takes pride in every product they offer and are always looking for ways to improve their menu selection. New recipes are regularly rotated into the mix alongside classic favourites.


    Stone is enthusiastic about the growth of the business but is keen to keep the quality of the product and essence of the brand intact. His goal in the next 5 years is to open 30 new locations, with each individual franchisee running their store like their own family business.

    Do you really know what chemicals are in the beauty products that you use? - Calgary - Canada's Podcast

    Do you really know what chemicals are in the beauty products that you use? - Calgary - Canada's Podcast

    Jasmine Marra is the founder of Gypsy+Jasmine a beauty company that has one singular mission; to craft earth inspired beauty products that make you feel pampered and beautiful without compromise. After having children, Jasmine took a keen interest in the ingredients of products that were entering her home as both of her young boys were experiencing terrible skin sensitivities and eczema. Eager to help her children get some relief, she spent hundreds of hours researching and understanding what ingredients were safe for her kids and family. This also allowed her to take a closer look at the ingredients in the products she was using on her own skin. She was shocked to learn about the preservatives, additives and harmful chemicals linked to disease, inflammation and hormone disruption that were found in almost every beauty product she put on her body. It seemed nearly impossible to purchase a beauty product that wasn’t loaded with fragrance or toxins at the everyday drug store. She walked through the aisles of beauty departments with this newfound knowledge, and knew she had to do something. That’s when she founded Gypsy+Jasmine.

    Self-confidence is making a commitment to yourself and following it through - Vancouver - Canada's Podcast

    Self-confidence is making a commitment to yourself and following it through - Vancouver - Canada's Podcast

    Jacqueline Frederick truly believes life is a gift every day. Her goal in life is to always live, laugh, love, and fulfill her plan and purpose. As a personal trainer, she saw the struggle as her clients tried to achieve their goals but experienced setbacks and failures through a lack of self-esteem and confidence – the very same issues she had struggled to overcome herself. Believing that she was not smart or capable enough kept her confidence low and her achievements minimal. Finding the strength to have confidence in herself was a game-changer; she learned that she can trust herself and that she can do anything. Now, she shares that same experience with her clients.


    I show them that self-confidence is making a commitment to yourself and following it through. By creating a safe space for being vulnerable, I help my clients shed the weight of other people’s expectations, their own fears and stand with them every step of the way as they power through to their goals.
