Darcy Shore has been working around food since waitressing as a teenager in Alberta. She met her husband Randy at Banff's Sunshine Mountain Lodge where she managed the dining room. Today, she works at a cooks' supply store on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. After staying in the background for Randy's first book Grow What You Eat, Eat What You Grow, Darcy has stepped up with many of her own recipes for Home and Away. She was particularly inspired by a recent trip through Europe and Turkey and has adapted her favourite discoveries for North American home cooks.
