Chef at Home
 
Michael Smith is one of my favorite TV chefs.


YouTube - Mason Jars Chef at Home

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

Robo410 02-23-2009 09:34 PM

I think he is very good, and very Canadian!

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.

Here it is:

Blueberry Maple Syrup
  • 4 cups of frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup of maple syrup
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp each of ground nutmeg, cinnamon and cardamom

Directions:
Blueberry Maple Syrup
  1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Continue until reduced by half.

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.

This guy seems pretty cool.

It so happens I have a nice big bag of frozen blueberries in the freezer, thanks for sharing recipe.

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.

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. :rofl:He seemed like a great guy, very personable, outgoing, walked around talking to everyone.

Alix! I am from edmonton as well! An old sous chef of mine had a chance to cook with him at the folk festival and said he was a really nice guy.

Alix 04-24-2009 12:11 AM

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.

appleyard14 04-24-2009 12:50 AM

The episode was on tonight actually on telus tv global channels but I only caught the last few minutes. Looked like alot of fun!

Alix 04-24-2009 09:01 AM

DANG IT! Missed it AGAIN!

ella/TO 04-24-2009 02:41 PM

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.
