“I love wild blueberries, I grew up eating them.”
Tizzard recently teamed up with the Wild Blueberry Association of North America and has been extolling the benefits of this abundant Maritime berry at farmer’s markets, and on her channel where she will take a single ingredient and show three different ways to use it in the kitchen.
“Even though you can only get the fresh for a short time in the year, you can still freeze them year-round. So, I wanted to do a little segment where I show people how to use frozen wild blueberries three different ways.”
Hence Tizzard’s YouTube channel name, The Three-Way Chef.
“I like to take little things like that and show an interesting twist on them just to make it a little bit more interesting and educational as well.”

Wild blueberries are an important crop in Atlantic Canada but can growers overcome hurdles?
Standing on a hill in one of his blueberry fields in Sable River, Peter Van Dyk turns this way and that to avoid the wind and speak on his cell phone. The second generation wild blueberry producer’s fields are spread across half a dozen counties in southwest Nova Scotia, and visiting some fields from home in Caledonia, Queens County, adds 4 hours to his working day. In a normal year, he would harvest 250 acres, but this year, he’ll reduce that number by 50 acres; next year, he plans to harvest only 70 acres.
