The Best of Chef at Home

Essential Recipes for Today’s Kitchen

Canada’s favorite chef . . . is coming to your home!

There’s no doubt that Chef Michael Smith is passionate about food. You’ll catch his enthusiasm just by watching his hit Food Network television shows Chef at Home and Chef Abroad. Now he’s back with the much-awaited follow-up to his first book, Chef at Home, which has sold over 28,000 copies.

The Best of Chef at Home is a collection of the recipes that Michael is most passionate about—the everyday comfort food his own family craves. Both simple and easy to adapt, the recipes reflect Michael’s belief that making great food is about relaxing, enjoying the process, and losing yourself in the moment.

The Best of Chef at Home includes everything from quick recipes for weekday meals, like  Macaroni & Cheese, to fancier fare for entertaining guests, like Red Wine–Braised Short Ribs. Michael’s laid-back approach encourages creativity in the kitchen, with suggestions for altering and adjusting each recipe until it is truly your own. Why not try adding pine nuts to your chocolate chip cookies? Or curry powder to a classic chicken stew? Once you know the basics, you can create flavorful food for your family and friends with a personal touch.
