This year was the first in many that I was able to spend Mother’s Day with my mom, Linda Stewart. She’s a food, wine, and travel blogger and a lot of who I am is because of her. My love of cooking and all things epicurean most certainly exists because I grew up in her house. She’s an inspiration and, in true mom-fashion, also my biggest supporter.
After attending a food and wine conference on Whidbey Island, WA, my mom decided to pop up to Vancouver for a couple of days. She brought a ton of goodies up with her that she received at the conference, including a beautiful slice of Spring Brook Farm’s Ashbrook Morbier-style cheese. I was excited to use this for a cheese plate. So, we took a trip to Les Amis du Fromage, one of my favorite cheese shops here in Vancouver, and acquired more fixings for a special Mother’s Day cheese plate.
