Vancouver, BC | On Thursday, November 10th, C Restaurant is throwing a dinner hosted by sustainability titan David Suzuki. The evening is a fundraiser for the DSF and C’s burgeoning not-for-profit, the C Blue Foundation, a grassroots initiative by Harry Kambolis and Chef Robert Clark to raise essential funds to protect lakes, rivers, streams, beaches and oceans. The DSF and C Restaurant collaboration has netted an exceptional partner, the Lake Babine First Nation reserve fishery. Back when Rome was a mere village, the Lake Babine people operated traditional salmon weirs on their lake and river, harvesting hundreds of thousands of sockeye a year. Tragically, their traditional fishery was extinguished in 1906 by the Canadian government, to make room for an industrial coastal fishery. It devastated an entire way of life. This past summer, the Nation recreated their fishery, in partnership with Skeena Wild Conservation Trust, Raincoast Trading of Vancouver, and RiverWild Seafoods of Terrace. It has become the second largest sustainable sockeye fishery in British Columbia. Read more

Vancouver, BC | In the sepia-infused olden days, fortune seekers lured north by British Columbia’s gold rush referred to cranberries as “red gold”. The nutritional properties of the little red orb were life saving in the pioneer days of scurvy and other ills. Today, cranberries have been relegated to watered-down “cocktails” and canned jellies cracked open at Thanksgiving. But C, in its usual way, has decided to embrace this unique fruit, and make it the ruby red star of its very own menu. Read more

The GOODS from “C” Restaurant

Vancouver, BC | On Friday, C Restaurant received its first shipment of Hawkshaw salmon, recently reeled in from British Columbia’s storied Skeena River. Chefs Lee Humphries and Robert Clark are gleefully butchering the first batch, preparing it for C’s clients, who will be some of the only diners in the Lower Mainland to dine on the succulent catch. It is because of Clark’s personal relationship with fisher-people Fred and Linda Hawkshaw that he was able to secure this hard-to-get, bracingly fresh fish. The Hawkshaw’s “tangle net” technology, combined with live kill techniques, produces the most environmentally friendly and highest quality wild salmon catch in the province. Read more

Vancouver, BC | Our mothers. They tied our shoelaces, and applied Band-Aids. They let us lick the cookie dough off the egg beaters. They made the best grilled cheese sandwiches. They stood holding all the jackets at sports games, dutifully. They convinced us that we were the best looking in our high school. Mom’s taxi never ran the meter, and never expected a tip. When we were learning to drive, they slammed their foot down, even though there’s no break on the passenger side. They took endless pictures before we headed to Grad, even as we groaned and protested.

They couldn’t wait for us to leave the house. And then they couldn’t wait for us to come over and visit. They told us to soar. They told us to settle down. They listened to every phone call. They quietly tolerated our “me me me” phase, because they knew we’d grow out of it. We did.

Sunday, May 8th is Mothers Day. C is celebrating by throwing a complimentary cocktail and canapé reception between 3pm and 5pm. Guests can reserve for this experience by emailing info@crestaurant.com and writing “I Love Mom” in the subject line. Don’t delay; space is limited. Read more

The dishes born of the infamous Black Box and Mystery Wine competitions make up the first three courses.

The pièce de résistance is the citrus glazed Fraser Valley quail breast, leg ballotine, French toast, crisp quail egg and consommé. Read more

February 20, 2011 

It’s been a grueling weekend up here in Kelowna at the Canadian Culinary Championships (and boy is my palate tired). Here are your winners: with the Bronze medal, it’s Vancouver’s own Robert Clark of “C” Restaurant; winning the Silver is Jeremy Charles of Raymond’s in St. John’s; and taking home the Gold is Martin Juneau of Montreal’s Newtown. I’ll post over 100 photos later and provide some details as to how it all went down soon, but in the meantime it’s time to board a plane for the ride home. Congratulations to all the chef competitors and a big thank you to the people of Kelowna for hosting us and putting on a wonderful show.
