Chef Christopher Roper’s approach to cooking is simple: Use quality ingredients and cook them with classic techniques so that they are able to speak for themselves. Christopher’s passion and goal is to create the kind of dishes that you would proudly share with friends. When he is not developing and executing memorable meals at The Black Radish Catering Co, he can be found heading up his open concept kitchen at The Fat Cow and Oyster Bar in Langley, or cruising around the dining room in his flip flops making sure everyone is having a great time. Emmy Roper (partner and wife) manages the businesses
