About Us

WFC on FYI, C. Horton

Recipes, BIG flavour and wine.  Real food for real life, from my kitchen to yours.

Food, love and laughter have somehow become irrevocably entangled in my life.  Food is romance.  Food is passion.  Food is pleasure.  Food is life.  Pass the wine and tell me a story.

Cori (Corinna) Horton is Food Marketing Specialist, cook & freelance writer/photographer based in Canada’s National Capital Region exploring all things DELICIOUS!

Real food advocate.  Real wine… errrr… drinker.

Working out of my (tiny) home kitchen in Aylmer, Quebec (just outside Ottawa), Food Gypsy is a tale of life and love.   As a food professional, I spent five years as the solo operator small country inn in rural Nova Scotia and am currently supporting great companies like Epicuria Fine Food Store & Catering, Bread & Roses Bakery (Ottawa) and others.

Originally from Vancouver, I’ve lived Canada from coast to coast, spending a decade at Calgary’s Country 105 CKRY FM before a move across the country to experience Atlantic shores.  In 2010 I sold the big red house that was the Dragonfly Inn and set out on a journey of  30,000 miles that became Food Gypsy.   The end of that “life from scratch” tour lead me to Le Cordon Bleu, Ottawa, where I learned to cook – with butter.

Since then some of my work has been featured in media outlets such as the National Post, I appear on local television morning shows, CTV Ottawa Morning Live and Rogers Daytime as my schedule allows.   In 20013 I was Invited to compete in the World Burger Championships, part of the World Food Championships, November 2013 in Las Vegas, Team Food Gypsy placed fifth overall in the burger category and was featured in the associated television series on FYI TV.   (More…)

Interested in working with Food Gypsy? Occasionally I create sponsored posts for brands I believe in that fit with our values. I’m also available for recipe development & photography.  Send me a quick email for more info!

Food Gypsy is a continuing journey of taste and travel as student of love, life and cuisine.  This is my life, from scratch.

 In the Gypsy Kitchen  … made with love and butter…

corinna-horton-food-gypsy_homeIn my virtual kitchen there’s real food and great recipes.  Cuisine that inspires from our heritage, our current explorations and our travels.  Here you’ll find notes on technique, quick tips, a side of nutrition, a shared dining experience or two, products we love and wine reviews (focusing largely on #wineunder20bucks!) and the occasional slice of life.

I try to be as Ocean Wise, Green Palm, Fair Trade and as GMO FreeOrganic, free range, humane and local as possible – and so is this site.

We all care about the world we live in and the legacy we leave behind.  Your buying habits make a huge difreance.

Good food starts with good ingredients.  I wouldn’t dream of serving you anything less.  It’s the same with great conversations.  A measure of respect, a handful of humor and a bottle of wine never hurt.

With my crazy schedule and so much going, I do my best to publish as I can.   At the moment, we publish at least once a month focusing on the most inspiring, interesting and downright decadent topics I can find.

Just love to hear from readers, so drop me a line anytime.  Food is kind of my ‘thing’.  Come on in.  Let’s chat.
