A cooking show on Rogers TV launched on January 03, 2016.

What a thrill!

Filmed in my kitchen, with a new guest each time for tasting, critiquing and hopefully enjoying the meal, this is a half hour presentation, showcasing various dishes for you to make at home, sometimes simple, sometimes a little more challenging, always tasty. No studio set up, no props, just a real life kitchen and real life people.

The producers Deanne and Tyler, are nothing but a treat to work with, and certainly immensely talented in not just producing, but also putting a nervous newbie’s mind to rest. If you have a much fun watching as we have during the filming sessions, this will be 30 minutes well spent for all of us!
