Who makes the rules about food? Why can’t this go with that? Why can’t I have spaghetti for breakfast? I’ve always believed we can eat whatever we want, whenever we want (in moderation of course). When I first heard about the globally infamous Gordon Oliver I felt an instant connection. We both share an interest for thinking out-of-the-box. Some people would call it crazy, I call it exciting. Having just published his fourth cookbook, Oliver has a certain charm to him. He captivates you with his guile and tenacity for going against the grain. His recipes, though intensely scrutinized by celebrated chefs, are innovative and inspiring. The world is a smaller place and many foodies are pushing the boundaries of culinary combinations.
The Chef’s Buffalo Wings Milkshake made with Clamato, paprika, cream and fried chicken wings, is an absolute stunner to Caesar-a-holics like myself. I often come under fire from friends (and family) because I like to dip my salty, freshly-cut fries in a cool and creamy vanilla milkshake. What’s wrong with that? I think food should be fun and inspire creativity. Cheers to you Gordon Oliver, I look forward to watching you on Eat Talk on CTV, Mar 14 7:27pm local time.
