Canada's most celebrated chef reveals his food and his story.

No chef in Canada is more respected for his devotion to local, seasonal, sustainable gastronomy, and his relentless pursuit to define and celebrate Canada's unique regional culinary character, than Jamie Kennedy. Kennedy has been at the forefront of Canada's farm-to-table, slow food and local food movements. In this journey, he has helped to nurture and strengthen the community of like-minded producers, chefs and consumers.

Editorial Reviews

"From the first of my many life-affirming meals at Palmerston, it was apparent that Jamie was ahead of his time. And he’s never looked back. How fortuitous for all of us that his genius continues to feed and inspire." —Bob Blumer, gastronaut and Food Network host
