Here are my favourites from Le Burger Week hunt I did over past few weeks. I love being a photographer for these kind of food festivals. I visited so many different neighbourhoods that I have not been to before in Montreal, met so many interesting people..this job is more than just taking photo of a burger and I love it.
In three weeks time I visited over 40 restaurants in Montreal, taking photos of their dishes for La Poutine Week.
Le Montrealaise at Fairmont

Great start to a #KoshWeek! Delicious Mile End food tour by The Wandering Chew & Musée du Montréal juif – Museum of Jewish Montreal
I did a photography project for Kosh Week, that is happening in Montreal from July 1st to 7th. One week dedicated to clean, local and sustainable food in Montreal inspired by Jewish culinary traditions. So in preparation to that, I went to lots of cool restaurants and photographed special dishes that they will be making for Kosh week. Here are snapshots.
Poutine Centrale is doing a Latkes Poutine. 3971 Rue Hochelaga, Montreal, QC H1w 1K2
ART: brgr is preparing a Shakshuka served with side of special tahini and fine chopped fresh salad and a thick fluffy warm pita bread.
Chez Boris is offering a beignewich with organic cured salmon, creme fraiche, capers, dill and cucumber.
And my personal favourite, Mediterraneo Steak House! burger and a poutine from Mediterraneo Steak House!

The Navjote ceremony is the ritual through which an individual is inducted into the Zoroastrian religion.
At the age of seven, Zoroastrians are given a sudreh (shirt) and kusti (cord) as part of an initiation ceremony. These garments are considered sacred. They tie the kusti around the sudreh three times to remind themselves of ‘Good Words, Good Thoughts, and Good Deeds’.
Zoroastrianism is one of the world’s oldest monotheistic religions. For 1000 years Zoroastrianism was one of the most powerful religions in the world. It was the official religion of Persia(Iran) from 600 BCE to 650 CE.
It is now one of the world’s smallest religions. In 2006 the New York Times reported that there were probably less than 190,000 followers worldwide.
In the 10th century a group of Iranians fled Iran as refugees in search of somewhere to practise their religion freely.
They finally ended up on the shores of Gujarat and were granted leave to stay there, thus founding the Indian Parsi community (Parsi being Gujarati for Persian).
Zoroastrianism is a home and community oriented religion. There is no tradition of monasticism or celibacy. Zoroaster himself was a family man and most worship happens in the family home.
Zoroastrianism is also about action. Zoroastrians work towards improving the local community and society in general. They tend to give generously to charities and are often behind educational and social initiatives. The Parsi community in India is particularly known for its industrious contributions to Indian society.
