Cook Live with Vikram Vij

Attention everyone!
I'm about to make a confession.
It is going to be an earth-shattering one so please be prepared.
Here goes:


I know. It's shocking.

Okay. In all seriousness, I know that YOU know that 99% of my blog posts are about eating out at restaurants. But in all honesty, I actually really enjoy cooking. I know it's really hard to believe but I assure you that I'm telling the truth! Whether you believe me or not, it really doesn't matter 'cause I think what I'm about to tell you is pretty cool...especially if you love me :p

Chef Vikram Vij, who was born in India and grew up in Amritsar and Bombay, is the owner of the restaurant Vij’s (@Vijs_restaurant) in Vancouver, BC, which was recently named the Best Restaurant in Canada by In addition to appearing as a featured guest on Top Chef Canada and on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, Vij has published two award-winning cookbooks and has his own named brand selection of frozen foods.
