Said, is a French-Comorian living in Calgary. He's also Western Living's Foodie of the Year and a self-taught pastry nerd who earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience before getting the baking bug. This week we discuss Said's childhood in the suburbs of France and pitch ideas for the citizenship test (hint Paul Gross). We swap pandemic baking stories, and discuss the great Swahili coast foodways. We list our favorite humble Canadian pastries and discuss how Said makes refined recipes that speak to his unique background and lived experience. We see big things in his feature @foodnetworkca we're talking to you!
