I don't know about you, but I'm so enjoying Lynn Crawford in her new show, Pitchin' In!  It's laugh-out-loud funny - I mean the woman loses her pants for Pete's sake! (If you haven't already, do yourself a favour and watch the Turkey episode). I don't care what you may say, that's good TV.

When I caught up with Chef Lynn at her latest venture - a restaurant of her own with partner Cherie Stinson of Restaurant Makeover fame  to open later this month - it was pretty clear Lynn was living life to the fullest and enjoying every minute of it.

Standing in the chaos and the cold (which is why I look like I have no neck btw) of what will be Ruby Watchco Restaurant in Toronto's Leslieville, I asked her to give us the scoop on Pitchin' In.

BTW, here's the link to the Lobster episode Lynn talks about in the video (funny stuff).

Ruby Watchco - the name comes from a sign Cherie uncovered during a taping of Restaurant Makeover -- will be headed by Chef Lynn and Truffles Chef Lora Kirk. Kirk was one of the sous chefs who accompanied Lynn to New York when she competed against Bobby Flay on Iron Chef America.

Lynn told me they'll be cooking local, seasonal dishes served family style. Can't wait! Be sure to check out my fellow blogger Elana's post on Ruby Watchco with Cherie Stinson over at HGTV.ca.
