Vera immigrated to Toronto at a young age and immediately fell in love with the different food options that were available. She's been in search of her next meal for as long as she can remember and is constantly on the hunt for a new restaurant or cocktail bar opening. She's an avid traveler and always taking recommendations from locals to find hidden gems down dark alleys where tourists typically don't venture. While at home in Toronto, she enjoys getting her hands dirty in the kitchen and combining traditional recipes with modern twists. When she's not in the kitchen, she can be found taking her dog Charles for long walks or hitting the newest workout studios.
