I am proud of my country and also proud that many of my fellow Canadians are featured for this event.
One of those people is also one of my favourite chefs to watch on Food TV and he has inspired me with many dishes. His down to earth, old style of cooking is also mine. His concept of pick an ingredient and cook what your taste buds tell you compliment each other, has also made many a happy meal in this house and if you 've ever caught his show, my nieces' 'pantry envy' is well founded!
Besides.... anybody who's made a meat smoker out of a discarded refrigerator is aces in my book!
He is host of the “Chef at Home,” “Chef at Large,” and “Chef Abroad” TV shows on the Food Network Canada and has been chosen to be part of the elite group of chefs preparing food for the athletes and will act as corporate chef for Sodexo Canada, the catering service that is responsible for working the Winter Games.
