365 Days of Dining: #Richmond365
Dear chili fans of Richmond, Greater Vancouver, and The World:
I don’t share your love of sweat-inducing food, so I didn’t always pay enough attention to it (and therefore, you) during 365 Days of Dining. I’m not a thrill-seeker when it comes to spice; I’m a person with a relatively low tolerance who appreciates the flavour added by chilies, but can only handle so many of them. In fact, only this year did I begin placing small (and I mean, small) dots of sriracha on my food, and recently purchased fresh poblanos, thus increasing my fresh pepper-purchase stats by 50%. (Yes, I had only purchased them once before).
I don’t think my spice tolerance is anything to be proud or ashamed of – it just is what it is.
I ate SO MUCH TARO during my year in Richmond, but before those 365 days started, I hadn’t even heard of it. Or maybe I had? I don’t know. It’s impossible to remember back to my pre-taro days.
And still really into carrot cake.
It’s been over a year since we’ve said goodbye, and over two years since I began that digestive thrill-ride we called 365 Days of Dining. For those of you who are new to my story, here’s the quick version: my name is Lindsay, and I spent an entire year dining at different Richmond restaurants and eateries, and posting daily about my experiences at each one. It was an edible crash course in all things Asian, as well as a personal exploration of the best of Richmond (the likes of which includes Buddhist monasteries, a 19th century Finnish fishing village, and some incredible community farms).

All Mondays should begin with the sweet smell of cornbread, a lesson in smoking ribs, and a BBQ feast complete with a Driftwood beer (before noon). Really, they should.
