For its 13th year, the EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival is going bigger and better, and is coming to the city with a full week of stellar culinary events from April 26 to May 3.
A household name in Metro Vancouver, Vikram Vij was born and raised in India until the age of 20 before moving to Austria to study and receive his chef certificate from the Salzburg Hotel Management School. He then moved to Canada in 1989 to work in Alberta and, finally, moved to Vancouver and opened his first restaurant, Vij’s Restaurant, in 1994.
Vij’s Restaurant has become renowned not only across the country but around the world as one of the finest Indian dining experiences. Over the past two decades, Vij has opened several restaurants around Metro Vancouver, a food truck and created his own line of prepackaged gourmet curries, Vij’s At Home.
He’s been a guest judge on Top Chef Canada, a Dragon on CBC’s entrepreneurial hit Dragon’s Den and recipient of an honourary doctorate from Simon Fraser University, alongside his wife, Meeru.
