Heading into the home stretch, the challengers are feeling the benefits of local eating, but James and Alisa are intent on pushing them farther. Angela St. Cyr is given a rare opportunity to learn from Vancouver-based Raincity Grill’s executive chef Robert Clark while Sherida Peters is tutored by her sister-in-law to help her cook without a recipe. Meanwhile, 14-year-old Cassie Clark Vernon gets in touch with her roots by assisting a First Nations elder prepare a traditional meal. The Weremchuk Williams go fruit picking, pushing Steve’s agoraphobia boundaries even further. Finally, Angela St. Cyr treats some of the other 100-milers to a three-course dinner while Randy Hawes serves up a 100-mile barbecue meal he auctioned off earlier in the summer.
