Karen Anderson is a Taste Canada award-winning cookbook author and owner of Alberta Food Tours, Inc. Having grown up in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick, she admits she didn’t feel at home in Alberta until she spent time on its farms with the wind blowing waves into the wheat fields and an endless sea of blue sky overhead. When not writing or leading tours, she loves to hike, and she is on a mission to stay at a different Alberta backcountry lodge each summer.
