"What really hooks me is interesting, in-depth, and creative reporting on the local food scene in British Columbia, as well as linking the local scene with larger world food issues. That's why I love The Tyee." -- Meeru Dhalwala
And that means a lot, because (besides being an award-winning local author) Meeru is one of Canada's most tuned-in, outspoken activists for local food movements. With her husband, Vikram Vij, Meeru has written two award-winning cookbooks: Vij's and Vij's at Home. She's supporting The Tyee because she believes that our in-depth, creative reporting accomplishes things that other media outlets don't.

About this Tyee Builder: Before opening restaurants and penning two mouth-watering tomes, Meeru worked for an impressive array of international non-profit organizations on human rights and economic development projects. In her role as co-owner of renowned local restaurants, Vij's and Rangoli, she has been a proponent of Community Supported Agriculture, and has worked with regional farmers whenever possible.
