Michael Smith, great chef, nice guy

Another wonderful installment of Word on the Street in Saskatoon today. Rick, Jim and I listened to a great, down-to-earth chat today with Chef Michael Smith of Foodnetwork fame. The makers of Coke and Kraft Dinner had to have ears bursting into flame at about 1:30 p.m. Michael had done a foreword in the book my daughter Erin and I did, Breaking Bread, Nourishing Connections: People with and without Disabilities Together at Mealtime (Brookes, 2005). So it was pretty fun–despite standing in a long winding lineup–to finally meet Michael in person. Jim and I met him. Michael said nice things about my book (that’s him doing so in the second photo); I said nice things about his, and Rick took pictures. Michael’s newest is Back to Basics, and looks full of good things to try. Breaking Bread is still available through Brookes!
