Chef at Home

Michael Smith is one of my favorite TV chefs.

even though I watch some food shows I was not familiar with this chef. I liked the way he cooks and for the info he gives. So, what show is he on? Thanks

Have you ever made his Blueberry Maple Syrup sauce? It's fabulous. I love his "Chef At Large" show, unfortunately, I don't get it here.

Blueberry maple syrup sauce? I'm drooling just thinking about it. Sounds wonderful.

Schoolgirl, I think its only on Canadian networks, you will likely only see him on youtube. Google, Chef at Home, Chef at Large or Chef Abroad.

I have plenty of blueberries in the freezer and a bottle of maple syrup, so I am going to try this. Especially since we sometimes have pancakes or waffles for supper.

I like watching Michael Smith as well. I got to see him at a local food show last year but didn't get to talk to him. I have used one of the key lines from "Chef at Home" for my signature often. I think of the three shows I like the first one, "Chef at Large" the best.
