Interview – Chef Michael Smith

Chef Michael Smith is one of Canada’s most prominent culinary figures. He is an award-winning chef, host of Food Network Canada’s Chef at Home and Chef Abroad, and is the official Food Ambassador for Prince Edward Island.

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in New York, Michael Smith has been a professional chef for over 20 years. He is dedicated to supporting young Canadian chefs and the culinary education of our youth, and is continuously encouraging families to return to their kitchens and rediscover the joy of cooking. Michael’s style of cooking embraces the idea of simple, practical, and nutritious meals along with the exploration of “freestyle” cooking (using recipes merely as a guide for creating your own culinary masterpieces).

I was recently able to have a chat with Michael Smith while he was in town promoting his new cookbook, “The Best of Chef at Home”. Our conversation was truly inspiring, and his passion for food, cooking, and family is completely contagious.

One comment on “Interview – Chef Michael Smith

  1. Great interview! Michael Smith has inspired me to venture back in to the kitchen. One bad experience has scared me for life and I fear failing again. But Michael has made cooking simple and explains why ingredients work. Watching him cook the foods on his show and then following the recipe in the kitchen makes it almost feel like I am at a culinary school. Slowly my intimidation is fading, once again I am looking for feedback on my dishes and it helps that I have a husband that praises every dish I make. Chef at Home & The Best of Chef at Home are tops in my books.
