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 weeks 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.

Q: What excites you most about cooking?
A: The creation process. It’s a real journey from farm to table, and to create a recipe from scratch and bring it to life, on a plate, is really one of the best feelings for me.
Q: What is one tip that you would give at home cooks?
A: The best tip I can give home cooks is that simplicity is key. Being a good cook doesn’t mean you create a bunch of over the top meals, It’s being able to understand what it is you’re about to cook and how to properly compliment it. Good quality meats don’t need a big combination of spices.
Q: What is one ingredient that you think every kitchen should have?
A: Besides salt? Lol. Come to think of it, That’s it!! 100% Bahamian harvested sea salt is literally the best ingredient to have in the kitchen.
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.
