Chef Michael Smith in Vancouver Nov 2/2009
I enjoy his cooking programs. He shows a real passion for food, and encourages people to cook at home, and to be adventurous. He also has a great philosophy toward food, and its place in the family.
His new cooking/travel show is also a favorite. I saw the Italy show, and it was quite good.
I can see some not liking him. He could be percieved as contrived.
