“Since winning MasterChef last year, I’ve been asked hundreds of times how my love for cooking originated. The truth is, I really love eating. That’s my short and savoury-sweet origin story. Food is comfort, it’s distraction, it’s expression, and it's empowering to make it yourself. It’s carried me through some of the scariest and most painful times of my life, present days included.
When I was at Saint Mary’s, my main comfort food was tea & toast at the caf. Since then, I’ve accrued a few more culinary tricks up my sleeve. Some days I’m up for more complicated recipes than others. Enduring this collective trauma will impact us all differently and can make even the simplest of movements exhausting: if you don’t feel up to cooking, I get that and have been there. If you do, there’s lots of recipes & video cook-throughs on my Instagram and in the My Queer Kitchen series. I really hope my little corner of the internet can help provide some comfort, inspiration, distraction, and culinary community. Let me know if you give any of the recipes a shot; we can eat together, apart.”

Daniel Broadley Crim’07: I had not been back to visit the campus since I graduated until last summer when my wife and I made a trip out east to visit the university and see Halifax. It was an amazing feeling being back on campus. It felt like home. My wife was seven months pregnant when we visited. So, obviously we ended up going to the bookstore and bought some souvenirs for myself and our baby. My wife and I had a healthy baby boy, Colton Broadley. He is now eight months old. We took these photos a couple months ago when he was able to fit into the clothes we bought him
