For our special CBC Food Bank show, we challenged Delta Grand Okanagan chef Stuart Klassen to make a world class meal, Iron Chef-style from the food found in a Kelowna Food Bank hamper.

With no real meat to work with, Chef Klassen invented carrot bacon as part of the first course, whipped up something scrumptious from a box of Kraft Dinner for the main and made a lovely dessert to finish the meal.

He did it in less than 2 hours, and host Chris Walker got to taste, and judge, the results. And at the end of the segment Vernon's own Andrew Allen performs one of his most popular songs.
