Join renowned B.C. chef Robert Clark, Executive Chef of Vancouver’s award-winning C Restaurant, to hear about his approach to great food, great fish and eating responsibly, especially when it comes to the sea. Chef Clark’s belief in food is pure and simple: “As chefs, our job is not only about serving great tasting food, but encouraging our staff and our guests to learn how to get sustainably produced food to the table.” Clark believes firmly that, as a chef, he has to be aware of the food choices he makes.

Chef Clark and Chef Michael Blackie (recently appointed as Executive Chef, National Arts Centre) will reveal their culinary secrets and food philosophies while giving a live cooking demonstration. The demonstration will be followed by tasting plates inspired by the menus at C Restaurant and accompanied by B.C. wines.
