Hello and welcome to the second edition of 5 Minutes 5 Questions, a new feature on this blog profiling some of our beloved regular shoppers. This time we spoke to the lovely Chris Newell-Bate, who along with the equally lovely Joe shops at Seeds almost every day. We love our customers!

What’s your favorite product in Seeds?
The fruit and vegetables. They’re local and they’re tasty and mostly organic too.

What’s your favourite local place for a picnic? 

I really like the village square here and I also really enjoy Comox Lake.

What’s your signature dish?
Vegetable stir-fry with a side of some meat that I sauté on a really high heat and then throw on top.

What’s your favourite cookbook?
The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook. I’ve had it for years, it’s a great book.

What’s your guilty food pleasure?
Chocolate syrup – it goes on almost anything!

Please speak to one of the Seeds team if you’d like to be interviewed – as the name suggests, it only takes 5 minutes!
