During the summer of 2006, Stadtlander journeyed on his biodiesel, solar powered kitchen bus, The Liberator, with his family and apprentices from his farm in Ontario and headed west to Vancouver Island, Quadra and Cortes Islands in British Columbia. He was returning to the province that nurtured and inspired his early days as a chef at the Sooke Harbour House Hotel. In each locale he cooks for artists, farmers, oyster cultivators, environmentalists and loggers to create plein-air dinners using the natural bounty from the islands. Vij Vikram and Tojo join him on two occasions to celebrate their edible art. You will wish that you were one of the invited guests.
