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.
