What does Spicy Dal and Jian Ghomeshi have in Common?

They met at the CBC Artisan Market, of course. Jian purchased a package of spicy dal crackers in between his segments on CBC Radio Q, which he hosts. (It is great when two celebrities can get together.) We are big fans of the CBC and it is quite a treat to meet people behind the voices.

Here is a little more about the market from Sheryl Kirbey of Taste TO:

"Okay, so customers are not going to manage to get all of their grocery shopping done in one fell swoop, but people really did seem to appreciate the market and the artisanal food on offer. When I arrived at the official start time at last month's market, St. John's Bakery had already sold out about 50% of their stock (many vendors actually set up at around 8 or 8:30am to catch the on-the-way-to-work crowd). And Dawn Woodward of Evelyn's crackers remarked that most of her sales were for snack items such as her lavender shortbread cookies."
