If you're kind of a foodie and you live in Winnipeg, chances are you know who Chef Rob is. For those of you who don't know Rob Thomas, he's kind of a celebrity chef in Winnipeg. He's been cooking for over 18 years and now is part-owner of Modern Taco Company, a new restaurant on Academy in Winnipeg. Rob also offers catering services and personalized in home dining. He'll visit your home and create dishes with you and he'll even put together wine or beer pairings with the dishes.
Rob and I have been friends for years and it's always a treat running into him, his signature dreadlocks and really, really big smile. The guy is passionate about life and food- no wonder we get along!
I had the chance to sit down and interview Chef Rob for a school assignment. I also ran into local food blogger Lunch for 1 , Anna Echols. I got to eat some of his amazing tacos for lunch. And then later that night I returned for dinner. So basically I'm telling you the menu is great- and gluten-free!

Just a very small taste of a three week vacation in paradise.
Like my grand-mere always used to say: La vie est belle!
