(Lynn and Cherie inside the restaurant, the future site of Ruby
Watchco, currently the Citizen)
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
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
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
