Coming off Vikram Vij’s Indian review, I had a chance to sit down and take in Chuck Hughes’ (of Chuck’s Day and Week Off on Food Network) show at the Eat Vancouver Festival. To say that they are very different would be an understatement. Where Vikram had colorful and handmade curries, Chuck brought refined french cooking. Where Vikram brought a down to earth style of presentation, Chuck was rough, abrupt, and sarcastic. However, these added to his charm as he kept people fascinated by his descriptions of french cuisine. His scallops were a huge hit but what had people talking was his upside down cherry tort. Would I recommend Vikram over Chuck? Not at all. Both are amazing chefs but with completely different styles and backgrounds.

Eat Vancouver 2014

What defines Vancouver? In my opinion it is the people and the variety. When you put them together you get a wide variety of delicious food from many different backgrounds. Eat Vancouver is a festival that brings everyone together under one roof (BC Place stadium) to enjoy great food and the company of other foodies. From Curry to Smoked Salmon and just about every other food in between, the Festival had it all. I  came away with a full belly and a greater understanding of food. One word of advice, do not eat anything before coming otherwise you will wind up not trying everything.
