A few years ago, my friend Josee and I met him in Ottawa at the Tulip Festival. It was soooo hot that day, we had our cake decorating class that morning then we parked and walked down to meet him. We found him right away and were like little 12 years old spotting Justin Beiber or something...we were pushing each other, telling one and another "you go" - "no, you go" and finally, we did it!
We wanted to get it signed, so we flew over to the Rideau centre and got the picture developed so we could take it back and get it signed. When we went to him the second time, we were even more shy...he was stunned when he saw the picture and was like "hey, we just took this" and signed our pictures for us! Aaahh...memories!
His show THEN was called Chef at Home where he would cook from his kitchen and most of the time, he made his meals for his wife Racheal and his son Gabe - who he talked about all the time.
Chef at Home still airs but they are just re-runs, but Chef Michael Smith now has a new show called Micheal's Kitchen...
Yesterday, Josee was looking for a recipe and came across some articles from PEI (where Michael Smith lives) and much to our surprise, apparently him and Racheal have split and this is what happened to him this past June:
You can read the article here - but apparently, he divorced Racheal - has a new girlfriend - Chasity and now has a new baby! Who knew! I am thinking that is why he has a new show - and a new kitchen...cuz he has a new life!!
