Each year, NAIT welcomes one high-profile Canadian chef into their week-long Chef in Residence program. The program started in 2009 with chef Rob Feenie, and has continued to bring in incredibly talented, big name chefs over the years, including David Adjey, Susur Lee, Massimo Capra and Chris Cosentino have also all taken up residency in NAIT’s School of Hospitality & Culinary Arts!
This year, the 2014 Chef in Residence is the amazing, celebrity chef Lynn Crawford!
Crawford will spend March 10-14 working directly with lucky NAIT students.
“I’m honoured to be part of the Hokanson Chef in Residence program and spend a week working directly with NAIT students and learning from the experience,” Crawford says. “I look forward to sharing my experiences and philosophies with these up-and-coming chefs.”
Crawford was the first female Canadian invited to participate in the Food Network’s Iron Chef America. This year the battle continued as she competes on Top Chef Masters Season Five and she is one of the judges on Chopped Canada. She’s also starred in the Food Network show Pitchin’ In.
As part of the week-long residency, Crawford will prepare a three-course meal with NAIT students on March 13 called ‘Lunch with Lynn!’ And I’m very happy to say I’ve got tickets to give away for the exclusive (and sure to be delicious) luncheon!
