The Showman Chef Series Showcases Dinner Specials By Weekly Guest Chefs
Amazing food knows no limits. While professionally trained chefs can craft culinary masterpieces that weave unique flavours, textures and diverse ingredients into edible works of art, there are many who are gifted with a natural passion and love for food.
Several months ago, The Showman Restaurant launched their Chef Series, and invited professional chefs and home cooks to showcase their love of amazing food and recipes on the Showman menu, for one night only. To date, there have been several familiar faces on the Chef Series line-up. And, we decided to ask them all the same three questions to learn a bit more about who they are and what motivates them.

Chef Celeste’s featured night has passed, but be sure to visit her IG page to see what she will be up to next.
Q: What excites you most about cooking?
A: The creativity. Being able to showcase my food to “my family”. Everything that I make has some kind of story or slogan behind it. Being able to create dishes based on my clients specific needs and then allowing me to feed off of it is one of the best parts of my job.
Q: What is one tip that you would share with other home cooks?
A: I think it’s important for home cooks to learn the importance of investing in a small home garden. Our world is changing and it’s time to be smart about our eating and spending habits. By having a home garden, the accessibility and utilization of every part of a crop at its peak season is one of the best ways to ensure not only the source of the ingredient, but it truly does bring out the flavour profile of a well balanced meal. eg. Squash-flowers, seeds and young leaves are all edible.
Q: What is one ingredient that you think every kitchen should have?
A: LOVE & PASSION – though I think it’s not a secret! it’s something you should always have. Once you cook with these two elements,everything else falls into place!
More featured chefs will be announced soon, so be on the lookout on the Showman pages for who will be sharing their flavour packed dishes, next.
