    Michael Smith: No food pedestals, just a celebration

    No Comments

    From the Hamilton Spectator:

    For having such an exacting profession, Chef Michael Smith isn’t a fan of perfection.

    He knows the importance of nailing recipes as the best-selling author of 10 cookbooks. But he’s also made a name for himself by advocating for free-styling in the kitchen in his Food Network Canada series, “Chef at Home.”…

    Smith will bring that message to Niagara later this month when he headlines the latest instalment of Tastes in Niagara, a series of food shindigs hosted by Fallsview Events that features some of Canada’s most recognizable chefs.

    The event, which happens on Wednesday, Nov. 22 at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and Lounge in Niagara Falls, includes a four-course meal of Smith’s recipes, a cooking demo by the well-known culinarian, a meet and greet and some “hijinks and hilarity up my sleeve,” Smith promised.

    Massimo Capra is not a gambling man, but he’s betting his reputation that this tourist town wants better food.

    The flamboyant Toronto chef and television personality has lent his name, recipes, kitchen wizardry and mustachioed mug to the Crowne Plaza for Massimo Capra’s Rainbow Room Fallsview Restaurant.

    “I want to be the first one to put a name on a good restaurant in Niagara Falls,” Capra told those gathered Friday night for a gala to celebrate the rebranded restaurant.
