As mentioned in my last post, at the Blue Ribbon Classics Menu launch event we had the opportunity to interview Chef Bruce Bromberg of Blue Ribbon Restaurants. It was a pleasure to spend about 10 minutes with Bruce, and talk about this partnership with Renaissance Hotels, his food inspirations, etc. Instead of typing up a transcript, why not taking some videos and post them here?! So, here it is everyone, interview with Chef Bruce Bromberg:
How many cities are you touring with the Blue Ribbon Classics Menu? And why did you pick Vancouver as the first and only city out of US for this tour?
Bruce had the opportunity to visit Tojo’s, Rodney’s Oyster House as well as Granville Island. He’s certainly impressed by what our city has to offer.
What are the inspirations behind the menu? What inspired you to pursue a career in culinary?
Now it makes more sense why they chose to feature those dishes on the Blue Ribbon Classics Menu, why we’d see chicken wings, grilled cheese an chicken burger and not some fancy dishes.
What’s next for Blue Ribbon?
What do you think the future of the culinary scene will be like?
Final thoughts, Bruce?
What do you think? Hopefully this is not the last time we’d hear from the Bromberg Brothers. And who knows, there could be a Blue Ribbon in Vancouver sometime in the future!
