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.

Annabel’s Shortcake by Margaret Prouse
This is an old fashioned, biscuit-style shortcake, updated for the 21st century. The whole wheat flour gives it a nice nutty flavour, and the crunchy nuts and seeds complement the soft strawberry sweetness. Making strawberry shortcake can be a family experience, from picking berries together, to making and serving the shortcake. Children can help to measure and add ingredients and sprinkle the almonds and seeds over the shortcake. They are also very good at crushing strawberries!
