Julia Child. I could write everything cliché about this woman. But I won’t, except for stating my curiosity for food was cemented by this woman when I was 11 years old. Yeah, I was a strange kid.

Seven years ago, my sister Ajit and I travelled to PEI for a friend’s destination wedding. Really though, our whole focus was to honour our unrequited love for everything Anne of Green Gables. We are life-long fanatics for Canada’s darling fable and movies.
During a touristy day trip around Charlottetown, we stopped at PEI Preserve Company for lunch. This well-known island gem is famous for its delicious homemade jams, jellies, and honey. Along with a sandwich, Ajit also ordered a slice of Raspberry Cream Cheese Pie. It was out of this world and made her smack her lips. Refreshing and creamy. The perfect balance of tart and sweet. She was smitten. Even after getting home, she spoke often of the delicious slice of heaven. Wishing she could go back for seconds or thirds.
