Vikram Vij: 2016 NAIT Hokanson Chef in Residence [GIVEAWAY]

February 16, 2016

Each year the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) invites a renowned chef to their culinary arts program to take the role as Hokanson Chef in Residence. Last week NAIT announced that Vikram Vij will be taking the role this coming March 7-11.

The Chef in Residence program has been running for eight years thanks to donations from John and Susan Hokanson. The program allows the culinary students in the School of Hospitality and Culinary Arts a rare opportunity to learn from some of the best chefs in North America. From Chef Rob Feenie to Chef Lynn Crawford and Chef Chris Cosentino, the NAIT kitchens have hosted some extremely talented individuals willing to pass their knowledge to the future generations of chefs. See for yourself in the video below:


As a wrap up to the program each year, NAIT hosts a luncheon where the guest chef prepares a three course meal with the culinary arts students. The lunch prepared last year with Chef Michael Statdlander was incredible and I can’t wait to see what Chef Vij has up his sleeves. From watching him on Top Chef and Chopped, to trying some of his signature dishes, I’ve always been a huge fan of Chef Vikram Vij and I am so excited for his visit to Edmonton. This year the exclusive lunch is taking place on March 10th at Ernest’s Dining Room, and I want you to be there too. NAIT has offered me the opportunity to take one reader as my guest for the luncheon, so I hope you can join me from 11:30-1:00 PM on the 10th! Simply follow the giveaway instructions at the end of this post.

If you don't want to take your chances, a limited quantity of tickets for the luncheon will be on sale at 9:00AM on February 22nd via Ernest's for $85 each. Tickets sell out fairly quick, so get up early to grab your seat. NAIT is also giving away four pairs of tickets and you can enter here. Hope to see you there!

  6. I also would love to see Chef Antonio Park, he has an interesting blend of Asian and south American flavours.
    Also Chef Rob Feenie because he is Canadian, I'm old school and that meal I had at Lumière decade+ ago was amazing.

  20. International - Mario Batali. Canadian - Chuck Hughes because I love cream and butter or, in terms of learning, Sarah Kramer because I think some intense Vegan immersion would be a fantastic learning experience, especially in Alberta. @thedivinemsq
