A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by the National Post via Instagram and invited to be a part of their community of “Gastroposters”. Every week the Gastropost staff posts a new food-related mission, and the Gastroposters take a picture relating to that mission and post it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #gastropost. Basically, I get to do what I already love (take pictures of—and eat—delicious food) and have a chance to be published in the National Post’s weekly Gastropost pages.

The first mission I completed related to Father’s Day food, and I submitted two photos: one of my Caplansky’s smoked meat sandwich, and one of my root beer float (the bottom two photos in my last post). And, lo and behold, I was published in Saturday’s paper! Mine is the little one in the bottom-right corner of the left page.

If you get the National Post at home, keep your eye out for me in future issues – and maybe consider becoming a Gastroposter yourself!

Stay keen,
