Rob Feenie

Canada’s first “Iron Chef”, Rob Feenie is an unlikely one. A confessed hockey nut, he once aspired to be a fireman. But this working class all-Canadian boy pursued his love of food and today runs two of the best restaurants in Vancouver – one of which, Lumiere, received the distinguished Relais Gourmand designation in 2000. Rob has an abiding love for all things French (he’d like to retire in France) and its cuisine is the inspiration for his creations. He’s trained with some of the best chefs around including Daniel Boulud and Jean-Georges Vongerichten and counts celebrities like Kim Catrall, Pierce Brosnan and Michael Buble as fans.
