Jane Austen said, “One cannot have too large a party” and Karen Anderson agrees and admits she feels the same way about her cookbook collection. There’s always room for another person at her table and another cookbook on her shelf.
Anderson is a food columnist for Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and for Calgary’s City Palate magazine. She blogs at savouritall.com and has published widely in traditional and new media.
She founded Calgary Food Tours Inc. in 2006 and is owner and operator showcasing the bounty of Alberta’s food scene with her team of local food experts. Since 2012 she also leads annual cuisine and culture trips to India.
Indian food is a great passion for Anderson and she will release A Spicy Touch – Family Favourites from Noorbanu Nimji’s Kitchen with her co-author and long-time Indian cooking mentor Noorbanu Nimji in 2015. Nimji’s previous volumes of A Spicy Touch have sold a quarter million copies.
Anderson is happiest when she’s freshly home from the market and cooking up a feast in her kitchen. Her cooking playlist is upbeat and reflects her global travels. You might even call it a bit spicy at times.
