Oh Sweet Day! This Vancouver baking blogger is the queen of holiday cookies


This week on the V.I.A. Podcast we get to know Fanny Lam, the Metro Vancouver-based blogger behind the site Oh Sweet Day! Lam, who came to Vancouver from Hong Kong several years ago, got to know her new city through food and blogging. Now she has a brand new baking cookbook out that’s all about making the everyday awesome through delicious and easy-to-make treats.

Plus, Lam is known as the queen of the holiday cookie box (you won’t believe how many orders she fills every December). We get some holiday baking tips from this baking pro (or you can just order some of her goodies up for yourself).

You’ll also hear from V.I.A. writer Elana Shepert and an eye-raising emoji-based campaign being run by the Greater Vancouver Food Bank. Plus Elana and Lindsay talk about the insane number of Christmassy things you can do in and around Metro Vancouver right now.
