Hi! I’m Louisa Clements and welcome to Living Lou. I celebrate all things food by creating simple, fresh and flavourful recipes to inspire others.
If you’re like me and most of my readers, you’re a modern, busy and budget conscious foodie. Thank you for being here; I’m so looking forward to being a part of your cooking journey.
I’ve been running Living Lou for twelve years and develop all of the recipes, shoot all of the photos and write every single blog post. I’ve worked in the test kitchen of one of Canada’s leading women’s lifestyle magazines and have had daily a food column in the newspaper, Metro News. You may have seen me on national television or giving cooking demos at Williams Sonoma and other events in Toronto.
I have a bachelor’s degree in film and media and a Master’s in management.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me at [email protected] – I love hearing from you!
My Food Philosophy
I believe that food should be simple, fresh and flavourful. It starts with real ingredients and simple techniques to create meals worthy of both a Monday night and a social media share. My recipes are vibrant and approachable, designed with speed, ease and simplicity in mind. But they are a step up from the everyday “ho-hum” meal. My recipes are globally inspired and developed not only to pique your interest (and pin to your Pinterest board) but also to provide answers.
My goal is to fill up your “go-to” list with recipes that delight and inspire.
Living Lou in the Press
Living Lou was chosen as Hill & Knowlton’s top 10 food blogs to follow as well as Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Blog of the month. I have developed recipes for Metro News, Chatelaine, Today’s Parent and Walmart Live Better and have written for multiple media outlets including Chatelaine.com, Cityline.ca, Thekit.ca and The College Prepster.
Living Lou has been featured on GoodHousekeeping.com, CNN.com, Buzzfeed, MSN.com, Prevention.com and many others.
I have also worked with a number of brands such as Loblaws, Hamilton Beach, Dairy Farmers of Canada, KitchenAid, Kraft Canada, Lavazza, and Mushrooms Canada.
