  • Julia Child’s Second Act: Alex Prud’homme Tells All

    4 APR 2024 · Alex Prud'homme had a special bond with his great aunt, Julia Child. I found Alex an affable and warm person. Perhaps that's because we both had a special connection to Julia – I was her dear friend. In 2016, I interviewed Alex Prud'homme while he was on a book tour promoting The French Chef in America. You can listen to our conversation here (and I highly recommend it – Alex is delightful!):  There are two staples from Julia in my cooking repertoire: Potatoes Anna and Lemon Loaf Cake. You'll find both of those recipes here:  In 1999, Julia visited to the Toronto Star test kitchen where Julia sampled from delicious dishes of Toronto’s most talented chefs. The video is here:

  • From Patriarchy to Pâté, Restaurateur Jen Agg Tells All

    7 MAR 2024 · Eloquent Toronto restaurateur Jen Agg is a strong woman. Her book “I Hear She's a Real Bitch” relates how the media has not always been kind, mischaracterizing Jen's feminine strength and ambition as pushy and bitchy. As a strong woman, who also had a career in a male-dominated field, I can relate. I don't find Jen to be a bitch. When I interviewed her in 2017, I found her to be passionate, principled, caring, creative and a credit to her profession. Listen to my interview with Jen Agg here: Follow Jen on Instagram:

  • I Grill Author Rob Firing While He Barbecues Steak

    7 SET 2023 · BBQ guru Rob Firing taught me two important lessons about grilling steak. First is to use a coulotte cut of beef; for the uninitiated, the coulotte is boneless, has the flavour of a flank steak but is less chewy. (Bonus: Coulotte is usually reasonably priced). The second piece of advice Rob gave me was to reverse-sear. This method requires slow, low temp cooking before briefly searing the juices in. Trust when I say that reverse-searing guarantees a tender, juicy steak, every time! Listen to my podcast episode with Rob Firing here: For more instruction on the reverse-sear method of cooking steak, read my blog post here: For more recipes of all kinds, join my Facebook Group, Sittin' in the Kitchen:
