He came to town here to cook for the Folk Fest and I guess he was a HUGE hit. He is so amazingly TALL!

Yup, he is 6'8". I'm 6'2" and I felt like a dwarf (little person) when I saw him at a food show. He has a really relaxed manner and makes food that anyone can make, with everyday ingredients and even the kids wil eat the meals.

A few years back, I went to a fundraiser . I went to the private cocktail reception that he hosted before the event. I'm 5'0". I look really, really, really short in the pictures. He seemed like a great guy, very personable, outgoing, walked around talking to everyone.

Hey! Nice to see a fellow Edmontonian on board. Have you seen any of his episodes from the Folk Fest? I hear they were amazing. I also hear the Folk Fest food was fantastic.

Mine are in plastic dollar store containers made to look like a certain home party company that has been around for years. I have them all lined up and labeled in a pantry similar to his.
