Michael Smith: Back to Basics cookbook
Chef Michael Smith is originally from New York but it wasn't until he started at the Inn at Bay Fortune on Prince Edward Island that his career really started to take off.
He's the host of five cooking shows on the Food Network and author of several best-selling cookbooks.
His no-nonsense approach has won over many home cooks.
His latest cookbook is called Back to Basics: 100 simple classic recipes with a twist.
