The Writer

Hi, I’m Jocelyne. The writer, cook and fledgling food photographer behind Dining to Know. I recently moved back to my hometown of Ottawa, Ontario. I love eating, traveling, cooking, reading, running, hiking, theatre and writing. There are about fifteen notebooks stashed around my living space at all times; I’m a compulsive list maker. I always bring too much food on camping trips. I am learning how to knit. Hot yoga is not my thing and I drink a smoothie pretty much every single day.

Cooking became a passion for me at age fourteen when I transitioned to a vegetarian diet and my French-Canadian father, who happens to be a chef, asked me if I could still eat ham. I started preparing my own meals and discovered I had a profound love for all things culinary. I recently became more interested in how my food ends up on my plate so I started a blog.
