Celebrity chef Michael Smith at Le Cordon Bleu Ottawa on Flickr by beFOODled.
Last Friday, Michael Smith was in Ottawa and he made a quick visit to the Le Cordon Bleu culinary school. My friend works there and here she is posing with him in the school's demonstration kitchen. (Shady, this is how you should always roll.)
Unfortunately I was in Montreal (I would never say these words in any other circumstances), otherwise I would have been there, too, with bells on and a big cheesy grin.
Michael Smith is a Canadian celebrity chef who has starred in four cooking shows on Food Network Canada, the latest being Chef Abroad and Chef at Home. He is also a chef emeritus of The Inn At Bay Fortune, a restaurant on Prince Edward Island, where he lives.
That makes two friends now who have chilled with famous chefs (Squeaky and Gordon and now Em and Michael), but I am not jealous. I, too, have had a celebrity chef alert. Deets to follow so stay tuned...
