Candice's Cusina meets Rob Feenie!

My boyfriend, Jaeger Mah, surprised me with a ticket to the 2010 EAT! Vancouver Food & Cooking Festival. From May 28-30, the festival brings together foodies, celebrity chefs, local restaurants, wineries and food manufacturers together for a 3-day extravaganza!

Candice's Cusina met up with Vancouver's very own "Iron Chef", Rob Feenie, during EAT! Vancouver where he cooked us a dish made of cured salmon served with potatoes and pickled beets on the Food Network Celebrity Stage.

Chef Feenie is most recognized for claiming the title "Iron Chef" after defeating Chef Masaharu Morimoto on the Iron Chef America. Now he is the Food Concept Architect at the Cactus Club Test Kitchen and shares some of his culinary favorites with Candice's Cusina.
CC: What's your three favourite go-to ingredients?

CF: I love sea salt, good olive oil and mushrooms!

CC: What's your favourite comfort food?

CF: Mmm, roast chicken for sure.

CC: What's your favourite junk food?

CF: Pizza! Oh, but don't tell anyone.
