Valerie Howes grew up just across the water from Edinburgh in Fife, a Scottish county on the east coast, where fishing villages and working harbors dot the coastline. Today, she lives with her family in Toronto, always a little nostalgic for the sound of the sea. As the food editor of Reader’s Digest Canada, Valerie created a blog about Canadian food culture, Open Kitchen. It won Gold for Best Blog at the Canadian Society of Magazine Editors Awards and the Canadian Online Publishing Awards, as well as a National Magazine Awards nomination. Valerie has written about culinary travel, sustainable food systems, and people who’re making a difference in their communities, for publication such as enRoute, Martha Stewart’s Whole Living, Globe and Mail, National Post, Canadian Living, Chatelaine, and Pure Canada. Her next book project explores the edible landscapes and seascapes of Fogo Island, Newfoundland.
