Comfort Food Cooking: Brussel Sprout Fried Rice

Join Simon Bell, chef from the Parkdale Food Centre, to learn how to make an affordable and easy option that can be made in one pan. Respecting the tradition of fried rice which hails from China, but is as well very popular in East Asian cuisine, this recipe includes egg, brussel sprouts (not so traditional), green onion, ginger and soy and of course RICE!

 

This is the second of three Comfort Food Cooking demos.  Join us and enjoy new recipes!

 

Simon is a long standing veteran of the Ottawa food scene. Having worked in Kitchens since the mid nineties, from Montreal to Paris, he prides himself on having a deep understanding of the diversity of food and its impact. In Ottawa he was part of the team that brought Oz Kafe to the forefront of the Chefs community and now finds himself at the helm of the Parkdale Food Centre Kitchen where he takes pride in his ability to learn from others and impart his own knowledge and understanding of food.

Simon uses his voice and privilege as a Chef to help bring opportunities to those who enter the Parkdale Kitchen, to learn, grow and teach others their own personal food stories.
