Fraiche_dsc1432This week on Food For Thought, a brief profile of Wayne Martin, former executive chef at the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver.  He left that lofty position to open Crave, a casual restaurant on Vancouver’s East Side.  It was a great success, and now he has a new venture called Fraiche, in the lofty heights of West Vancouver’s British Properties neighbourhood.

Here is the audio file for your listening pleasure.
