- About Dean –
I was raised in Alberta and spent a number of years working in restaurant kitchens (big and small) before completing a culinary apprenticeship at SAIT in Calgary. Then I hung up my cook’s uniform and studied food and nutrition at the U of A. This B.Sc. degree combined with a dietetic internship enabled me to work as a Registered Dietitian in public health positions on the East and West coasts. Later, at UBC, I completed a Master’s thesis investigating the significance of home cooking for families.
At HealthLink BC I work in the area of provincial food policy and enjoy contributing posts to this blog. I like to write about food issues from the perspective of a new father, someone who loves fresh seasonal food, a food geek, and a guy who is interested in the bigger questions regarding food and eating. Thanks for reading.
