Here’s some of what Chef Tran had to say:
What’s your favourite seasonal ingredient?
All herbs! Cilantro, dill, perilla, mint, sorrel, watercress, mustard greens.
Why is Feast On important to you and the uniqueness of your restaurant and catering?
It is all about accountability. The Food and Hospitality industry is small, competitive, and fickle. All restaurants rely on returning patrons to support their businesses and need to accurately and constantly tell their story in a transparent, honest, and clear manner. There are many ways to achieve this, but one of the easiest ways is through the partnership of non-profits like Feast On, who provide third-party assessments of our claims.
What does your ‘Perfect Weekend’ in Kitchener look like?
A visit to Ambrosia Corner Bakery for a coffee and a perfectly baked kouign-amann, chat with Aura, the owner of this cute local community icon. Followed by a quick visit to the Kitchener indoor/outdoor farmers market for fresh local products, hand-made artisan foods and crafts, with a side hop to Golden Hearth Bakery for any number of freshly baked loaves of crusty artisan bread.
