During the 2017-18 season, we chatted with a handful of Grizzlies, including Ryan Walters, Travis Howe, Taylor Richart, and coaches Tim Branham and Ryan Kinasewich about their favourite foods, recipes, and more. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be publishing one every Monday, so get out your pots and pans, and enjoy!
What is your favourite kind of food?
Anything that includes a steak I’m usually pretty happy with.
What’s your favourite recipe?
It’s called tourtiere. It’s like a meat pie that my grandma makes for Christmas, it’s pretty good.
Why is it your favourite?
I think just the tradition aspect of it, at Christmas we all know it’s coming, so it’s kind of our family’s thing.
Do you like to cook?
I do, yeah. Actually find it pretty relaxing — takes up some time too.
Are you a good cook?
I don’t know if I’d say good, I’m half decent. I’m getting better.
What do you like best about the recipe you ended up providing?
I think just the ease of it. It’s a one dish thing, so it’s kinda simple to make, hard to mess it up, I guess!
Who is the best cook on the team?
I would say Travis Howe.
And what about the worst?
Probably Sam Windle.
