As a trained chef and journalist, I tell stories about food for many different kinds of media. I develop recipes, write cookbooks and style my food for photography. I am a spokesperson for food organizations I believe in.
I teach high school students how to cook. I write stories about food for print, radio and blog. I love to research and discover. I have three boys. Everyday is different. The latest? I am the host of a new cooking show called Love Food with Clerisy Entertainment. You can catch it locally on Eastlink TV, or on the Discovery Network in the UAE, Saudia Arabia and Egypt.
Below are a few of the ongoing projects I am involved in:
I am the host of Love Food, a new cooking show produced by Clerisy Entertainment. The show celebrates everyday food and the life that surrounds it – from local ingredients, dishware and fabrics to foraged flowers and neighbourhood stories- in a fresh new way. It airs daily on Eastlink TV.[/cc_half_col_left] [cc_half_col_right]
I am the ‘Home Chef’ for PEI Mussels. I develop family-friendly mussel recipes and videos to inspire year-round enjoyment of these sweet, local and sustainable bivalves![/cc_half_col_right] [cc_half_col_left]
I am a recipe developer and Maritime spokesperson for the Dairy Farmers of Canada. Last spring, the challenge was to come up with a few cream-based recipes using only ingredients from my pantry. The result? Eton Mess and Curried Peas.[/cc_half_col_left] [cc_half_col_right]
Cooking Instructor – Since 2009 I’ve been teaching high school students how to cook. We meet on a monthly basis for a three hour class which count as ‘creative credits’ for the International Baccalaureate diploma. Sample recipes? BBQ-ed ribs, brownies, Thai curries, roast chicken, omelettes and maple baked bacon…The menus are based on what the students love to eat; knife skills and other kitchen fundamentals are covered as we cook.[/cc_half_col_right]
