Joel MacCharles


Joel is a home cook and writer. He loves to cook a great meal, but beyond that he is passionate about learning, understanding the impact of our food choices, getting to know where food comes from and the people who help bring it to the table. This passion has resulted in over 1700 articles and recipes shared through several online communities anchored by wellpreserved.ca. Joel’s love of food takes him into the woods to forage and hunt, to meet farmers and chefs, and to explore the culture around food.
