MEET THE CHEF | Having worked everywhere from St. Barths to Saint-Tropez as the private chef aboard TV mogul Merv Griffin’s yacht, Darren Brown’s globally inspired, locally sourced menu is a natural fit at Oru Cuisine in Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel. For our Lunchbox Challenge, the B.C.-born chef chose to give the classic Cobb salad a fresh turn: “It’s just one of those comfort foods that everyone can relate to,” he explains. In a seasonal twist, Brown swaps out the usual boiled chicken for wild B.C. spot prawns, which can be caught fresh until July.
