Cook for a day at Sutton's Le Cafetier

Le Cafetier.jpgThe CBC's Marika Wheeler's recently stopped by a local café in Sutton called Le Cafetier. It's a local hub that takes its connection to the community seriously. Recently, they gave one of their regulars the chance to be the café's cook for a day. It went well, and they plan to repeat the experiment. Marika Wheeler tells Sonali Karnick the story.

Derek Bocking: Quebec crab and asparagus

We are starting to feel spring outside, finally. It makes you want to put away the slow-cooker and the heavy winter meals and lighten up your plate.

So on this week's Food Feature, our kitchen coach Derek Bocking brings us some seasonal meals that take advantage of fresh northern Quebec crab and asparagus.

For the early birds with barbecues, he'll also tell us how to smoke our own salmon.

Derek is the sous-chef at the Montreal restaurant Chez Ma Grosse Truie Cherie. He brought his simple recipe for crab and asparagus salad into studio.
