Food Network Host, Nutritional Activist, Food Media Producer
Chef Michael Smith, Canada’s best-known chef, is a passionate advocate for simple, sustainable home cooking and an inspiration for families creating their own healthy food lifestyle. He’s the host of Chef Michael’s Kitchen, Chef Abroad, Chef at Home and Chef at Large seen on Food Network Canada and in more than 100 other countries.
Michael is Prince Edward Island’s honorary food ambassador, an award winning cookbook author, newspaper columnist, professional chef and home cook. At the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, he led the team of chefs that cooked for the world’s Olympians in the Whistler Athletes’ Village. His cookbooks are smash hits across Canada, and his latest from Penguin, Fast Flavours, hits the stands in September. His web video production company is breaking new ground online and his Twitter feed is Canada’s top choice for foodie fun.
Although Michael is a true chef at large, his favourite role is Dad, home on Prince Edward Island with his partner Chastity, her daughter Ariella, his son Gabriel and their newest arrival Camille! Michael is an avid map collector, long-time windsurfer and novice kite sailor.
Fast Flavours is all about creating great meals in minimal time. Packed with 110 mouth-watering recipes, Fast Flavours will get you through a busy week with simple, speedy meals while showing you how to slow down on weekends or when you have more time on your hands.
