Canada’s first Iron Chef America champion shares the best of his family-friendly, casual meals in his newest book Rob Feenie’s Casual Classics (2012 Douglas & McIntyre). Feenie first wowed diners with his innovative tasting menus at award-winning Lumiere restaurant in Vancouver. Today, he serves up family-style recipes for Cactus Club Cafe locations across B.C. and Alberta. Here, try four brand new recipes from his cookbook, plus one famous dessert from Cactus Club Cafe. Make the most of the remaining warm-weather weekends by serving up his grilled scallops (pictured above) at a backyard barbecue. Or try his healthy quinoa salad or new take on sloppy Joes.
