Healthy Smokin Cooking Demonstration with Chef Sheridan

Smoking foods on your barbecue at home can get your belly rumbling quite easy, but can you do it?
I see it as almost of a staple of summer- the smell that carries from miles away, and you bet im gonna come a runnin when I smell the hickory smoke. Oh boY!

I led  a cooking demonstration at Taste of Edmonton on July 19th to teach 10 participants the easy ways to smoke foods on your barbecue at home. I also placed a large emphasis on the ingredients we choose; whether it be your cut of meat or if you are in a toss up between fresh lemon juice or that bottled lemon garrrrbage.
Consider your side dishes, do they match well, and together are they providing you with a complete balanced meal? Hmmmmm? Hope so, cause its pretty damn easy!

We demo'd a recipe from my cookbook "Healthy Family Recipes" the mighty Redneck Ribs
Each cook had the oppertunity to design their own sauce and smoking flavour for a full rack of pork back ribs. Pork ribs were provided by local "Irving's Farm"

Fireplace Stove World was generous enough to sponsor the event by providing 3 traegar barbecues for us to cook and smoke our ribs on. Thanks for coming out Tammie!

Another hit for this Chef.

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported!

I cheffed together a mushroom ragout using crimini and oyster mushrooms. Creamy mushroom gold baby!

This Recipe snatched from my cookbook "Healthy Family recipes" Company's Coming.
Another cheese stuffed beauty!

Baby Benny with pistachio Hollandaise. 

You have to be straight off your rocker not to fall in love with this one. I used quail eggs from a local quail farm "Bryconn developments"combined smoked bacon, spinach and a crisp croissant to lay it all together.

We prepped 200 of each of these recipes to serve to our guests.

I thought it would be fun to lighten the load by having my own jelly bean raffle to win a signed copy of my cookbook. Can you guess how many beans?

 I wasn't even close, sure glad I didnt have to count those. Thaaaanks Nikki :D

Good times with some great people! See ya next Year!

Appy parties are too legit to quit

My latest appetizer Party was for Bernie who was throwing his wife a 50th birthday celebration with friends and family at his home in St. Albert with an outdoor/indoor setting.
Bernie had close to 60 guests in through his home during the evening, who were intrigued to watch a chef at work creating bite size glory.

I made 350 hors deouvres composed of 5 different recipes, and choosing a favorite might take you a couple taste tests.
Later into the night my team and I assisted with serving birthday cake, cleaned up the kitchen and packed up.

Can you imagine not having to clean up after a busy night in your home like this, having your guests impressed with your provided food, have everyone leave not hungry and all for a reasonable price. Sounds too legit to quit.

Check out my appetizer parties on my website and see some more wicked cool photos.
