TORONTO, January 26, 2015 – Two of Shaw Media’s most dynamic hosts are heading across the nation and into Canadians’ homes and communities on a revolutionary mission to define, document and celebrate Canadian Cuisine. Shaw Media is proud to announce that celebrity chef Lynn Crawford (Chopped Canada) and funny man Noah Cappe (Carnival Eats) have been named the faces of the colossal multi-phase project, Food Network Canada’s Great Canadian Cookbook. The multi-platform venture launches later this year with the ultimate online experience for food fans. The website launch will be followed by an explosive four-part docu-series, which starts production today in association with Alibi Entertainment.
“Nothing brings people together quite like food and today we begin our coast-to-coast journey to uncover the heart and soul of Canadian cuisine,” said Christine Shipton, Senior Vice President, Content, Shaw Media. “We can’t wait for our two brilliant storytellers – Lynn Crawford and Noah Cappe – to chronicle this nation-wide adventure and piece together the beautiful patchwork that is Canada’s culinary diversity.”
The highly entertaining four-part television series sees Crawford and Cappe travel the country stopping along the way to meet and eat with Canadian food lovers and makers. With a richness in diverse cultures, an abundance of deliciously home-grown ingredients and multi-generations of beloved family recipes to draw from, each episode of Food Network Canada’s Great Canadian Cookbook takes a look at Canada’s cultural food mosaic by capturing kitchen conversations and chronicling culinary quests with everyday Canadians.
