Derek's Kitchen: hot summer, cool dishes

cucumber_and_dill_shrimp_salad.jpgWe've had some pretty extreme heat this summer. And who wants to turn on the stove when the humidex is at 40?

But we still have to eat. So to help us find some creative solutions, we've invited back Derek Bocking.

Derek is the sous-chef at the Montreal restaurant Chez Ma Grosse Truie Chérie. He's also an alumnus of the first season of Top Chef Canada on the Food Network. And his food blog is called Derek's Kitchen.

On the menu today: Melon Soup with Prosciutto Chips and Cucumber and Dill Shrimp Salad.
