Ep.43 Can You Handle This Spice? (Mimi - Cooking)

June 30, 2019

(Mimi - Cooking)

On this episode I had the honour to have Mimi as my guest. She shared with me her interest in Cooking as her hobby.

Mimi is new to Ottawa and wanted to create a community for other new people in the city and she did just that. She created a facebook groupe called Newcomers in Ottawa (https://www.facebook.com/groups/newcomersinottawa/)

Youcan also check out their website to be updated on interesting stories and events happening in Ottawa (https://newcomersinottawa.ca/)

If you still want to learn more about this great community, you can even follow them on instagram (https://www.instagram.com/newcomersinottawa/?hl=fr-ca).
