Food on Your Shirt!

12 Apr

Getting egg on your shirt doesn’t have to be a bad thing–in fact sometimes that’s the best thing that could happen to a shirt. Calgarians Pierre Lamielle and Candace Bergman think so. Each week they design a new food-centric T-shirt, with lovers of everything from pies to poutine to peas in mind. On a trip to Calgary, I ask local culinary heroes to try some on for size and say “cheese.”

Those on a pork-eating streak will be pleased to find at least one new tee catering to their fetish on the Food on Your Shirt site each month: “There is a fine line between being a vegetarian and being not a vegetarian and that line is made of bacon,” asserts the FOYS team.

Candace and Pierre ship all over the world and will do custom orders too. Their t-shirts are pre-shrunk, so if you think yours is getting a little tight, don’t blame your washer and dryer, blame your third helping of mac and cheese.
