The rebuilding of Nepal after the earthquake in 2015

This is a long exposure shot at 3:00 am when it was pitch dark and the mountain slightly lit by the moon.

Nourish Cowichan Breakfast Program.

We are back from Nepal and I have started editing the documentary on the rebuilding efforts after the devastated earthquake on April 25, 2015.

We will have a variety of great stories, not only on the Khumbu Valley where we were when the earthquake struck, but also of smaller villages in the Kathmandu area.

Unfortunately we noticed that most of the houses in these villages are only partly rebuilt!

Why? This is because the government of Nepal has not given those people their second payment of the three payments that were promised.

We hope to premiere the new documentary in September and will keep you posted once the date and time is established. 

I was happy to donated my time to create this short promo for Nourish Cowichan's bid to become the recipient of the $50,000 SimpleGenerosity grant from Island Savings.

I was surprised and shocked when Fatima Da Silva, chef at Vinoteca at Zanata Winery told me that approximately 500 hundred children in the Cowichan Valley don't get breakfast in the morning.

With the help of a group of volunteers she is providing breakfast for a variety of schools in her small kitchen at Vinoteca. With this grant they hope to build a permanent production kitchen to make breakfast for all schools that need it.  

For this purpose she is also organizing a large fundraiser at Vinoteca on Saturday June 10.

Travelling to Vietnam and Cambodia

During our recent and adventurous travels to Vietnam and Cambodia we were fortunate to visit the Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap and have a tour of the facility.  We were so impressed with the hospital that we like to share their story. 

It started with a photograph.

Renowned Japanese photographer Kenro Izu first visited Cambodia in 1993 to photograph the magnificent Angkor Temples. read more ...

“Food is Fun: Let’s Cook and Eat!!”

With Master Chef Hartmut Handke, CMC

We just delivered five volumes of our iBook series (Cookbook with biography) of Chef Hartmut Handke, CMC. We followed chef Handke when he competed for the Bocuse d’Or in France resulting in our TV production called “Chefs Dream” for the Food Network.

The iBooks have stories about his life as a chef and recipes of the dishes he created over his long career. Built in the iBooks are the videos on how to create these delicious dishes.



We are open for new ideas so please contact us if you have a worthwhile story or idea.
