In May, had the opportunity to travel to Niagara-on-the-Lake, where Vikram Vij’s cuisine was on display at Stratus Vineyards.

“It’s the only time you’ll never have to wait for Vij’s food,” said Charles Baker, Stratus Vineyards director of marketing and sales. He explained to the guests who had gathered that the meal had been coordinated by Vikram Vij, the Vancouver-based chef whose restaurant is famous for its hours-long line-up for a table as much as it is for its remarkable food.

Vij’s, you may recall, was chosen number one in’s Top 50 Restaurants in Canada 2012 list. Managing Editor Adrian Brijbassi was at the event: Prior to the dinner, Vij demonstrated the depth of his knowledge during a discussion about the spices that are so essential to his cooking. Turmeric, cayenne, fenugreek and fennel seeds were among the items laid out in front of guests, who were invited to touch and smell. “Curry shouldn’t make your palate hot,” he told the audience of mostly Caucasian diners. “You should have a little sweat on the back of your shoulders and maybe on your forehead, but it shouldn’t be burning your throat. You can’t enjoy the flavours if you’re constantly drinking water.”
