Welcome to Chef Michael Smith's Food Country!
Chef Michael Smith takes you for a culinary adventure across Prince Edward Island experiencing everything from digging PEI potatoes to harvesting mussel socks to a pig roast. Chef Michael Smith then invites you into his Prince Edward Island home to show you why everything tastes better on PEI!.
"A chef's paradise, PEI is much more than its famous potatoes. The Island is full of hidden culinary gems that only residents are familiar with," said Chef Michael Smith. "It's a place where the lobster on your plate may have been harvested on the fishing boat at the dock outside your window and the salad is made up of herbs and greens from the garden in the yard," continued Smith.
Chef Michael Smith visits Lily Pond Farms in Bear River, Prince Edward Island to learn about the PEI potato harvest and grading.
Chef Michael Smith heads out to sea with Francis Morrissey to harvest lobster off Seacow Pond, Prince Edward Island . He then heads to Royal Star foods where Chef Michael tries to beat the fastest shucker in the plant!
