Passion for Pork

Recipe: Chef Arun’s Pork-Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Sharman - Monday, November 18, 2013

During Christmas in November at Jasper Park Lodge, our Passion for Pork Chefs Eric Hanson, Andrew Cowan and Doreen Prei were all assisted by the Fairmont JPL’s Chef Arun Sobharaj. Everything from candied bacon to bacon sriracha popcorn to meatloaf, Chef Arun was there to help make sure all the samples at Alberta Pork’s Passion for Pork session were perfect.

On our last day of sessions on the third package I came to the kitchen and found that Chef Arun was experimenting with some of Chef Prei’s leftover ingredients. To my delight he pulled a tray out of the oven with pork-stuffed cabbage leaves. Wonderfully seasoned and the perfect treat for this Ukrainian girl – Chef Arun gratefully shared his recipe with me.
