    The Big Scoop 


    Last week I went to TIBS at Nite and enjoyed a plate of Renée Lavallée’s delicious white bean salad with grilled striploin, salsa verde, and feta, along with the sweet raspberry soda and triple chocolate brownie that completed the pop-up’s Thursday night dinner. I was also lucky enough to get the scoop on Renée’s upcoming venture—The Canteen—which will open sometime in late 2013 or early 2014 in the space upstairs from TIBS on Ochterloney St. in Dartmouth. I’m really excited to see how this unfolds. Read all about it in this week’s issue of The Coast!

    Passable Interview: The Feisty Chef 

    Renée Lavallée is, in her own words, “a chef, a mom and a crazy cheese lover”. Originally from Shawville, Quebec, Renée grew up in a gastronomically adventurous household. She has worked at Canoe, The Inn At Bay Fortune and more recently is the executive chef at Five Fishermen. She also writes a weekly column for the Arts & Life section of The Chronicle Herald. She even has her own website. But who is The Feisty Chef? Currently on maternity leave, Passable had the opportunity to sit down with her to talk for one of our Passable Interviews about her culinary upbringing, education and more.

    What are your first memories about food?

    My parents in the kitchen cookin’ up a storm; they were from the Julia Child era where they watched her show & tried to re-create. Memories of Crepes Suzette and chicken liver pate are still fresh in my mind. Also, they took us out every Friday night to try a new “cuisine”: Korean, Thai, Japanese, Turkish, etc….that was huge for me!

    Did you think that was normal?

    I did…I just assumed everyone else did the same thing.
