Adrian Ver, East Coast Editor
Fuelled by his curiosity to always try something new, Adrian’s passion for food began at a young age. Whenever his mom and aunt are in the kitchen, he would inquisitively ask if they needed any help. He would then proceed to take a bite out of whatever they were cooking/baking, sneakily of course. After joining his school’s Young Chefs Club during his 6th grade, he knew his love of food would just continue to grow.
Adrian’s food adventures include a stint in culinary school; this further enhanced his love of food and cooking. Having recently relocated from Vancouver to Toronto, he is Gastrofork’s newly minted East Coast Editor. Stay tuned as he explores all the eats in a vibrant new city!

“Food Tales with Liane” Youtube Series
Clever advertising, fat babies, horror movies and fine culinary cuisine, these are the things Liane Hung adores. But of course, food ranks #1, a love she almost too passionately admits. Her interest of sharing what’s delicious began with her ritual of meeting up with friends during recess and discussing who brought the best snack that day. She always won.
Now a young member of society, Liane has decided to spread her knowledge of food outside of the playgrounds. She only hopes her attempts at humour while describing to the best of her ability “how that thing she ate tastes”, will bring a bit of joy into your life, as much as food has brought joy into hers.
A true food lover and chef at heart, Nickie began cooking at a very early age. She began learning her way a round a kitchen by helping her parents and other family members prepare meals. The first full meal she ever cooked by herself was at twelve years old after her dad and step mom were exhausted from a day of moving. From then on, she was hooked. She began experimenting with cooking and baking everything from basic steamed veggies to elaborately decorated multi-tiered cakes. Her mixed Asian-British background has helped inspire and encourage her culinary diversity. Today, she still enjoys cooking for her family and friends, always experimenting with new ingredients. She is now looking to expand her horizons and branch out into the world of foodies and food bloggers to share her experiences.
