This is part of a year-long ‘Love for Local’ series calledNB365: portraits of New Brunswick entrepreneurs, businesses and organizations. Huddle is a media partner with Love for Local. Today, we hear from Sarah Evans of Black Duck Cafe in Sackville.
MY PARTNER AND I MOVED TO SACKVILLE FROM HALIFAX IN 2012 AND OPENED THE BLACK DUCK CAFÉ. WE HAVE STRONG MARITIME ROOTS AND LOVE TO SHARE OUR FOOD, STORIES, AND MARITIME HOSPITALITY WITH LOCALS AND VISITORS ALIKE.
Alan has a background in cooking and hospitality. He has worked as a chef in numerous restaurants before transitioning into becoming a food stylist, props master, and set decorator in the film and television industry. After a successful career in media, Alan decided to return to his culinary roots and run the kitchen at the Black Duck Café.
Both myself and Alan have a strong appreciation for the natural world and have educations in biology and water resources respectively.
I am currently in the process of becoming an accredited Master Gardener. This love of nature has culminated in our extensive garden and the foraged local foods and teas that appear seasonally on the menu as well as in the sourdough and other natural fermentation techniques used in some of the dishes.
