In 1992 he moved to Prince Edward Island, from where he has become Canada’s best-known chef, the winner of the James Beard Award for Cooking Show Excellence and host of Chef at Home, Chef at Large and The Inn Chef on Food Network Canada and in 26 other countries.

This is a gorgeous cookbook! Chef Michael Smith is not only a celebrity chef, he also cooks for his family every day. Family Meals is a fun yet practical cookbook which is exactly like Chef Michael Smith's style. I am impressed with the amount of good, practical recipes. And with his obvious love of hot sauce!
It is laid out in straight-forward manner and is beautifully illustrated. It is divided into the following sections:
- Breakfast and Brunch
- Lunchbox and Snacks
- Simple Salads
- Cook Ahead
- Soups, Stews and Casseroles
- Slow Cookers and Pressure Cookers
- Family Meals in Minutes
- Meatless Mondays
