This Sunday (March 25, 2012), the National Arts Centre (NAC) will be hosting the second annual Celebrity Chefs of Canada. Like last year, Executive Chef Michael Blackie has paired some of Ottawa’s most talented chefs with national chefs.

Finally, special guest Chef Patrick McMurray of Starfish Oyster Bed and Grill (Toronto) will be shucking oysters at the after-party for all attendees.

It promises to be a dazzling day with cooking demonstrations in the afternoon, a lavish evening tasting reception and a post-event gala where guests can mingle with the chefs and the crew. Only at the NAC will you find yourself in the same room as Food Network stars like Lynn Crawford, Ned Bell, and Susur Lee; 2012 Canadian Culinary Champion Marc Lepine; and 2012 Top Chef of Canada contestant Jonathan Korecki.

Teacher by day and blogger by night, I have always been passionate about food. I grew up watching my mother cook and bake as I sat at the kitchen table doing my homework. In the summers, I happily played in the backyard garden, picking strawberries as my parents tended their crops. A city girl with a love for the outdoors, my goal is to capture the ever-changing Ottawa food scene. When I’m not running, you can find me shopping for ingredients or in the kitchen cooking for my family and friends. Whether you’ve been cooking for a long time or are learning to cook for the first time, I hope you will find something delicious here to inspire you.
