In Part One of our two-part holiday special, we sit down with Toronto-born and bred but now Winnipeg-based food reporter and author, Corey Mintz.

In this first part, we speak about how he got his break into the world of restaurant reviewing and food writing.

Corey’s most excellent book, The Next Supper: The End of Restaurants as We Knew Them, and What Comes After, is available from all good booksellers, and a few shadier ones too.

Look out for Part Two in a few days time.
