Chef at Home
On Next: Today at 5|4c PM
Chef Michael Smith invites you into his home kitchen to show you how to create uncomplicated, tasty meals for your family and friends.
Today at 5|4c PM
Three generations of Smiths go on a fishing trip. With the catch of the day - trout - Michael creates a new version of an old family cooking tradition. Pan-fried whole trout, baked trout filets, a simple eggplant arugula salad with balsamic vinaigrette, and a barley risotto make up Michaels special family meal.

After spending the afternoon picking apples with his family, Michael goes out on a limb and works an apple theme into several savoury dishes. By following a few simple rules about how flavours complement each other, Michael creates a fall feast of cider braised pork shoulder, roasted acorn squash and sptzle.

Believe it or not, spicy heat actually helps cool you down on a hot day! Michael decides to experiment with chilies, and, taking his son Gabes young palette into consideration, he creates a few versatile chili-infused soups and salads that complement almost any dish. Recipes include: Grilled Corn Soup with Roasted Red Peppers, Chicken and Cheddar; Fennel Salad with Honey-Lime Vinaigrette; and Red Pepper Puree for garnishing.
