Postcards From The Crazy Trans-America Trail From Chambar Chef Nico Schuermans

September 22, 2011 

What does any right thinking chef do after opening three successful businesses in six years and becoming a father, twice? He grabs his motorcycle and leaves, of course (well, if only for a while).

We usually do enough field trips on Scout, but Karri Schuermans, wife and partner of chef Nico Schuermans (think Beatty St.’s Chambar, Medina, Dirty Apron) sent in these envy-inducing photos of Nico and his good friend Jesse Keefer (of the awesome Bodega Ridge on Galiano Island) riding the famously grueling Trans-America trail, which starts in northeastern Tennessee and ends at the Pacific at the bottom of Oregon. As a big fan of the Long Way Round films (and Nico and Jesse), I can only imagine how awesome it has been for them. The trail is over 4,800 miles of mostly off-road riding, so it’s quite different from the relative coziness of a Route 66. According to Karri – who has been getting updates and snapshots from the road – their travels have included a lot of dirt and great people (save for some Uncle Daddy weirdness in Mississippi). Nico t-boned a cow on his bike (both were fine) and had to tow Jesse for a while after his clutch broke, but beyond that, they’ve endured a lot of amazing scenery and had a wonderful time. They hit Oregon yesterday and are ecstatic to have real coffee for a change. Karri reports that “they may make it back tonight if the weather holds up, and are looking forward to a great meal and beers!” We hope the last of their journey is a safe one, and welcome both of them home.

News from Scout supporter Dirty Apron Cooking School

Vancouver, BC | The Dirty Apron Delicatessen, now open at 540 Beatty Street, will offer downtown-dwellers hot lunches, gourmet sandwiches, take-home carvery meals, deli meats and cheeses, produce, groceries and fresh flowers. Reminiscent of the general stores of old, the Delicatessen is housed in a historic brick and beam building in Vancouver’s Crosstown neighbourhood within the wildly popular Dirty Apron Cooking School.

Sandwich lovers will rejoice in the creations of Chef Nico Schuermans, whose pulled pork with Japanese mayo, pickled carrots, bean sprouts and cilantro on French baguette is a fresh take on a Vietnamese sub. Other sandwiches like chicken with chipotle mayo and roast tomatoes, prosciutto with fig and Cambozola cheese, hummus with avocado, mint carrot and pomegranate molasses, or the roast beef with chorizo, chimichurri, and charred tomato salsa are also sure to satisfy. Nico will also be offering a Roast of the Day and gourmet sides for healthy take-out family meals, the a perfect weeknight answer to that “what’s for dinner?” question.

In the grocery aisle, don’t miss Chambar Pastry Chef Eleanor Chow’s incredible toppings, previously only available as a delectable waffle side at Café Medina up the street. These indulgent sauces include flavours like white chocolate pistachio rosewater, raspberry caramel, milk chocolate lavender, dark chocolate and fig orange marmalade. If sweets are your thing continue to the freezer section for Eleanor’s homemade ice creams of vanilla bourbon, milk chocolate, and lemon buttermilk sorbet.

Far from your average deli, the Dirty Apron also offers organic fruits and vegetables, artisan cheeses, milk, yogurts, handcrafted dressings, pre-packed marinated meats, and anything else your epicurious heart desires.

The Dirty Apron Delicatessen is open from 10AM to 8PM, seven days a week. For more information please visit www.dirtyapron.com/deli. Read more
