Holly Brooke

Holly Brooke is a true B.C. gal. Having lived on the west coast most of her life, except for several years in the Kootenay's where she canoed and fished and lived in a tipi, she's very much at home outdoors and in the kitchen. She enjoys learning about wild, indigenous foods and their culinary uses. A graduate from the University of Victoria with an B.A. in English and a Professional Teaching Certificate she currently works as a teacher on-call and writes in her off hours. An avid gardener, devoted cook and baker Holly is especially keen on making soup and tarts from scratch. Fish tacos remain her weakness. But cheese is her all time favorite. And wine. And guacamole. Oh and candied salmon! She lives in Fernwood with her daughter and her cat and is very excited to be writing for EAT magazine.
