Welcome to the new Blue Danube Recipe Blog!!
We’re thrilled to be here and cannot wait to bring you delicious, healthy, and easy-to-make meals every month.
A little bit about me…
My name is Victoria Jackson (formerly Balega) and I am a Hungarian-Canadian raised in Toronto with an amazing husband, Adam, and a beautiful 11 month old puppy named Satoshi (Her instagram: @satoshi_jackson).
My Father, George Balega, started Blue Danube Sausage House Ltd. in 1994 and I have been involved in the business ever since. From stocking pop fridges to packaging meats, I have been around the meat & food business since age 5.
I studied Arts & Contemporary Studies with a Major in Culture & Entertainment at Ryerson University (where I was the President of my program) and was a bartender at several of Toronto’s finest establishments for 12 years.
I run the Sales & Marketing division at Blue Danube and spend most of my time speaking with new and longstanding customers that we serve in our Wholesale Department. I also own & run Victoria’s Markets, which brings our delicious All-Natural products to Farmers’ Markets, Festivals, and Events. Through my experiences in a Hungarian-Canadian upbringing and my experiences at Blue Danube, I have become passionate about sharing flavourful and healthy recipes using our homemade products that I am proud to serve my family.
I hope that you enjoy our recipes and tips and that I can bring a little extra flavour to your life! Like our company motto states, all of our recipes are “From our Family to Yours!”
