Tasty discoveries are often conveniently local…with a bit of legwork.

Anyone who’s dined at the late-great O’Doul’s in recent years knows that one of chef Chris Whittaker’s talents is a flair for flavour.  His dishes seem to coax more pure flavour (and tasty combinations) per bite of ethical meats, OceanWise seafood and local produce than most.

Ever the humble cook, Chris will tell you that all those palate-pleasing flavours are already in the ingredients he sources, and that all he does is simply stay out of the way.  Well, there’s some truth in that… but not the whole story.

In fact, as you’ll see in this video and others tagged here as “Foraging for..” Chris’s personal quest for flavour has many roots AND routes.
