To Die For Face: CTV’s Lynda Steele

CTV Consumer Reporter Lynda Steele shares her favorite foods and the one item she detests so much, she can detect it from ten miles away.

The food you would most often describe as, ‘to die for’?

LS – Saganaki – fried greek cheese with fresh lemon squeezed on the top. My motto is you can never have enough cheese.

Your favorite Vancouver restaurant?

LS – I love Lupo, L’Antipasto, and La Terrazza. The best thing about Yaletown is you can go for a glass of wine, have some good food and not worry about blowing over the limit.

Your trashy indulgence? (eg. that late night 7/11 or drive-thru treat)

LS – Either those fried cheese balls that you get at really backwoods Chinese take-out restaurants or chips.

The food you refuse to eat?

LS – I absolutely despise green peppers. My mom used to use them in spaghetti sauce and I could taste them from ten miles away. I even hate the smell.

The sexiest food?

LS – The dynamite roll at Blue Water with soy paper instead of seaweed. The rice is sticky on your fingers and there are fried bits of shrimp and mayo.

Your favorite dessert?

LS – This is a double-barrelled question – my favorite dessert is a homemade ice cream drumstick at The Flying Pig. And now I’m going to tell you I just lied because I’ve never actually eaten one, but I have stared at them and I think my life is not complete until I eat one.

Your favorite comfort food?

LS – Any pasta of the day at L’Antipasto because this is a real, traditional mama-in-the-kitchen and whatever she makes is awesome.
