Lynn (left) and I got us some treats on the fly and had an
impromptu picnic in Union Square Park.

A big mouth for yummy treats that is! *Achem*
As you may have noticed if you follow the blog, I'm making
the most of
my trip to New York City. At the behest of the Almond
Board of California I hit the Big Apple to witness a gainfully
dessert demonstration, and stayed a few extra days to see
what else I can shake down.
An absolute must on my list was to catch up with the jet setting
Chef and Host of Restaurant Makeover,
Lynn-funny-lady-Crawford. We lost her to the
city when hotel Four Seasons New York poached her from the Four
Seasons Toronto as Executive Chef, nearly four years ago.
Since then, Lynn certainly hasn't been simply polishing her
pots. A new show for Lynn -- tentatively entitled The
Fearless Chef -- is in the throws of production, and it
is to my sheepish fortune -- her misfortune -- that I caught
her. Lynn had a minor mishap on set and was sent home for
some brief time off.
Ever-the-accommodating personage, I met Lynn at her suggested
location, the Union Square Market, for a little catch-up, a
little snacking and some very interesting
revelations...and I made a video! My chin does do
quite a lot of wagging here, but not for nothing -- Lynn is quite
happy to throw us great tips on this and that, and we even put an
American on the spot with a little Food Network Canada
prodding. (Who doesn't love US/Canada polarization?)
Anywhoo - Enjoy!
Ever been to the market? What do you think of the
premise of Lynn's new show?
