Emily Richards

Host: Emily Richards

After entertaining Canadian Living Television viewers with her fresh approach to preparing memorable meals, Canadian Living Test Kitchen Associate Emily Richards is now sharing her energy and expertise as co-host of Canadian Living Cooks.

A native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Emily began her food career early-she learned to make bread and pasta at her grandmother's knee when she was only 3. Food was the touchstone in Emily's Italian family, so no one was surprised when she opted to get her degree in Home Economics, specializing in Food and Nutrition.

Emily joined Canadian Living in 1996 as a summer student, expecting to stay only three months. But, as so often happens, fate intervened and, at the end of her internship, Emily joined the Canadian Living test kitchen full-time, contributing to recipe development and testing the magazine's award-winning recipes, including those for Canadian Living cookbooks. She also plays a key role in the Canadian Living Cooking School, teaching Canadians how to cook-and, just as importantly, how to enjoy-wonderful foods from around the world. This past year, Emily starred on the Canadian Living stage at The Good Food Festival in Toronto, wowing guests with her wit and wisdom.

"I live by a very simple philosophy," says Emily. "Live, love, cook! I think these are the three most important ingredients to a full and happy life. My life is food and I want to invite everyone in to enjoy the experience."<p>

Emily lives with her husband, James, in Woodbridge, Ont.
