SPICE ON ICE - CHEF VIKRAM VIJ AT RIVER POP-UP

Chef Vikram Vij.

Sixty super lucky folks are in store for a truly memorable meal this week in Winnipeg. Not only will they dine in an intimate ten seat tasting lounge of a beautiful temporary restaurant on the frozen Assiniboine River, their chef for the evening will be Vikram Vij.

The renowned chef of Vij’s Restaurant in Vancouver, BC is “thrilled to be a part of such a creative pop up dining experience in Winnipeg”. The uncultivated culinary frontier, like RAW:almond, is familiar territory for the visionary chef. Read more in Bartley Kives‘ story ‘Celebrated Vancouver chef accepts icy invitation to bring his Indian vision, cuisine to pop-up restaurant on the river‘.
Vikram is “excited to share his heritage and indian cuisine with diners, and to help infuse an ethnic twist to this food festival”. Chef Vikram Vij cooks in the tasting lounge of RAW:almond February 3 and 4, 2014.
