Food writer Jane Sigal event at the museum

Food writer Jane Sigal at Stratford Perth Museum Thursday

At 3 p.m. on Thursday, November 7, Andrew Coppolino will sit down with Jane Sigal for a conversation on food and travel at the Stratford Perth Museum. It’s a free event open to all.

Jane Sigal ( is a returning Joseph Hoare Gastronomic Writer in Residence at the Stratford Chefs School. This is the first time SCS has ever had a writer in residence return for a second visit!

An author, journalist, editor, and recipe developer, Jane’s focus with the students this year will be on mining personal identity in the pursuit of meaning in food, in both the kitchen and on the page.

Her beautifully photographed cookbook, Bistronomy: Recipes from the Best New Paris Bistros, will be available for purchase.

Waterloo Region-based food commentator and food columnist Andrew Coppolino ( is an author and journalist, a former Stratford Chef instructor and a great friend to both Stratford Chefs School and farmers and chefs in Southwestern Ontario.

He is the author of Farm to Table, the book SCS published last year, in celebration of 35 years of teaching aspiring chefs.

I do hope this event will be fun and well attended! The museum is a lovely venue!
