Culinary Fun with Flavours of the West Coast

Debbie does Geoduck

Some fun yesterday when the Chek TV Program Flavours of the West Coast  came up to tour the Field Station and sample recipes for some great local shellfish with the Culinary Institute of Vancouver Island.    Chef Debbie Shore brings her usual sense of humour and culinary awesomeness to preparing Geoduck clams above with host Chef Steven Walker-Duncan.  Read on for filming shots and some food photos.

Assistant Amber Samples Geoduck

As always, the great thing about working with the Culinary Institute is involving their great students. Debbie brought two student assistants Amber (above sneaking some geoduck to try) and Jack (below).

Meanwhile our student crew stood back and drooled. :)  Brian Yip from Fanny Bay Oysters brought a selection of local shellfish for the chefs to work with (Thanks Brian!) and the results speak for themselves below.  Tasting was even better than seeing…..
