Culinary Q & A with Chris Falconer
Occupation: I’ve just recently moved back to the city and picked up contract work at IKEA, where I was employed while I worked on my business degree, until I find a position in Human Resources to continue my career path.
What did you eat today?
Breakfast – banana and fiber one smoothie
Lunch – slow roasted chicken sandwich on homemade whole wheat bread, with a side of carrots and cauliflower.
Supper – braised lamb shank on a bed of green lentils at Culina.
What do you never eat?
I can’t think of any thing, besides balut maybe, that I wouldn’t eat.
What is your personal specialty?
Nice rustic loafs of bread and slow roasted pulled pork.
Complete this sentence: In my refrigerator, you will always find:
Yogurt, apples, carrots, lettuce, kimchi, various mustards and hot sauces.
What is your weekday meal standby?
A roasted chicken or tuna salad.
What is your favorite kitchen item?
My KitchenAid stand mixer.
World ends tomorrow. Describe your last meal.
It would be a meal of foods I have strong memories connected to. Starting with cinnamon french toast with real maple syrup – melted fontina cheese on a Montréal bagel – a bison burger with guacamole – tacos al pastor – sashimi – and finish with my mom’s chocolate chip cookies and a tall glass of milk.
Where do you eat out most frequently?
Sushi Wasabi – the perfect place to indulge in my fish cravings.
What’s the best place to eat in Edmonton?
I’ve been away for a few years so I’m far from current when it comes to the finer things. Although I must say after having just enjoyed my first meal at Culina, that is definitely a spot people should hit up.
If you weren’t limited by geography, where and what would you eat?
Puebla, Mexico – where the mole was created. With every aspect of Mexican cuisine available on the street, I think I’d spend a day walking while eating anything and everything wrapped in fresh corn tortillas.
