Video: Lunchbox Challenge


Here at Canadian Business, we’ve issued a Lunchbox Challenge. We’ve identified 12 lunches that—while perfectly acceptable options—fail to get our hearts racing as diners. So we’re asking our favourite Canadian chefs to reimagine those menu items into the sorts of lunches we’d walk the extra block to get.

But there’s a catch. Once a chef has selected a dish from our menu, we cross it off. The last chef, you see, has to make what we want, whether they like it or not.

First up: Derek Dammann of Montreal’s Maison Publique makes us a better Reuben.

Check out the story.

The Lunchbox Challenge menu:

California Rolls
Chicken Noodle Soup
