Chef Michael Smith visits Abbotsford on Saturday

After travelling the world cooking for royalty, Olympic athletes and celebrities, chef Michael Smith comes to Abbotsford on Saturday, Oct. 4 to share the recipes that have pleased his most demanding critics – his family.

Smith will give a 30-minute talk at 2 p.m. at Lepp Farm Market, 33955 Clayburn Rd.

He will also meet with guests, pose for photos and sign his new cookbook, which will be available for purchase on location.

Smith’s latest bestselling cookbook, Family Meals, focuses on everything from simple, healthy school lunches to quick and easy weeknight dinners and delicious snacks.

Smith is a passionate advocate of simple, sustainable foods and the growing Canadian cuisine movement, and will share his love of family mealtimes.

Smith has six previous bestselling cookbooks and is a popular host of several Food Network TV shows including Chef Michael’s Kitchen, Chef at Home and Chef Abroad, as well as a judge on Chopped Canada.

Charlotte Lepp, owner of Lepp Farm Market, said her inspiration for cooking healthy homemade meals and sharing them with people she loves has been heavily influenced by my many years of watching Smith on the Food Network.

“I’m so pleased to see that he’s influencing a whole new generation in the art of simple cooking. It’s always been my dream to one day have him visit our market, and I’m so excited that he’s finally coming,” she said.

Smith’s visit to Abbotsford is free, and registration is not required.
