Local CBC Radio Windsor Morning “resident foodie” JONATHAN PINTO will be visiting Windsor Public Library (850 Ouellette Avenue) on Saturday, June 17, 2017. The 2 pm appearance is the fourth in a series which Windsor Public Library has scheduled to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday. He will be talking about his pursuit of flavour and good food in the Windsor area.
Hailing from Peterborough, Ontario, Pinto admits to a passion for food, urban policy and public radio. Last year he published his first book, THE BEST OF WINDSOR COOKBOOK, which features over 90 recipes from the region’s best chefs and farmers.
He graduated with a degree in Canadian Studies from Trent University in 2010. Immediately afterwards, he started at CBC Radio in Toronto as a Gzowski Intern– and continued to moonlight there as an associate producer & occasional on-air traffic reporter. Now a Windsor resident, he is the associate producer, food columnist, traffic reporter and studio technician for WINDSOR MORNING, the local CBC Radio One morning show. He recently completed a master’s degree in urban planning from the University of Waterloo.
Jonathan Pinto credits his parents with instilling a love for all-things food – his father was a chef and his mother an “incredible”cook.
This event is free and open to the general public.
