Happy 6th birthday VanEats! Yup, it was June 10, 2000 when this site was launched.
Thousands of blog posts, lots of great discussion with the VanEats community, hundreds of recipes and even a few restaurant reviews. Thanks to all who have read the site, and contributed to the discussion.
People have been asking us what it's like to raise a child from a food perspective. It's a culinary adventure all to itself and so far it's been a pretty positive one. Here's my account on raising a foodie.
Many, many Vancouver restaurants and bars are opening early (9a.m. or earlier since the matches typically start at 18:00 German time) so that people can watch a World Cup 2006 match and eat at the same time.
We are proud to say that we've survived the first two years of parenthood. There have been triumphs and challenges but overall it's been a joyful experience that we wouldn't trade for all the truffles in the world. And of course our foodie lives have changed...we're not dining out as much, grocery choices have changed, our cooking repertoire is different, and our entertaining practices are revamped. It's a whole new culinary adventure.
