With the host site transfer I lost 1 post and this was it…so can’t remeber what I wrote…its a new one lol.
A few month’s back I came across a segment on CTV news called Sunday Bite whichÂ “explores the many ingredients of Montreal’s food scene”. There was an idea submission form. So I filled it out with my blog’s info. Months later I got an email. Then things cam e up on both ends and months went by again.
Then one MondayÂ morning , 2Â weeks back, I get an email from the host of the segment, Nadine Ishaak, asking me to call her asap with a phone number. I called and from it ensued a very exciting conversation. Nadine wanted to do a segment on the new Foodie Exchange. After a couple of reschedulings we settled on last Monday for a taping date. I was bouncing of the walls with excitement. Me on TV….the focus of a segment.
The taping of the segment was an absolute blast. Nadine and the cameran man were both amazingly nice and we chatted away. We did a about 1 hour of shooting in a shop as I was buying stuff for the next passage I was sending out. And then we did another 1 hour shoot at my place showing what I have received in the past (and not yet eaten) as well as preparing a package for send off. Yep 120 min of tape for about 3 min of TV. But I loved it.
The segment will pass this Sunday, Nov 29th, on CTV news around 6h30-7 pm. If you miss it or are out of town the segment is reposted online on the Sunday BiteÂ page.
If you can make sure to watch it!
Evelyne you did a great job on your segment. It awesome seeing you and hearing you TV..
Hi Evelyne…I was so pleased that hubby and I were home cooking up a storm when all of a sudden your segment on ‘Sunday Bites’ came on to entertain us with your moment of fame.
If you were nervous…it did not show…you seemed so collected…as if you were born to be on television!
Although…got to tell you…thank god it wasn’t too long…we were a few seconds short of burning our â€˜Ricotta pattiesâ€˜. Speaking of Ricotta…great appealing article (and thanks for sharing) on homemade Ricotta and Mascarpone.
Coincidentally…hubby works for the largest cheese company in Montreal…the competition is on!
By the way…FYI…the cannolis at ‘Alati’ are slightly over-rated. I’ve been fortunate enough to have fresh ones fed to us by some Sicilian family members on my sis-in-laws side…yummy…a meal in itself! Also, lately on my visit to Sicily…I got a mouthful of the original…wow…quite different indeed!
Tell you what…I’ll ask around…and by the time I FINALLY have the chance to meet you in person at our next ‘Meetup’ … I’ll have a small list for you!
Now back to work for me…enough chitter chatter…I’ll keep some for our REAL chat.
Ta, and keep up the great blog!
Thank you all. I hope I get a movie offer before the vegemite!!!!!!
None yet though lol.
Thank you for all your support and encouragement!
Evelyne, you were GREAT!!! It was so very cool to see my friend on my tv last night. Congratulations!!! My friend is a tv star!! 🙂
Just watched it online, it was fantastic! My vegemite is famous! I hope it remembers me when it starts getting movie offers.
Excellent tv skills too, Evelyne, you’re a natural! You might even get movie offers before my vegemite tube does 😉
Excellent!!! We will definitely be watching 😀
Wicked! That sounds like it was tons of fun. It will definitely drive traffic to your site 🙂
Aren’t you special…our own Montreal ‘Foodie Vedette’.

I’m truly happy that all this is enriching your life.
Enjoy while the iron is hot!
