Chef Brad Smoliak
Hi, I am Brad and thanks for your interest in joining me in my KITCHEN. I am the founder and Chef of KITCHEN and the man in the apron you’ll meet at most KITCHEN parties, events and classes.
Before starting KITCHEN, I was one of the executive chefs and founders of Edmonton’s iconic Hardware Grill. I also had the chance to serve as the Executive Chef for the Royal Mayfair Golf & Country Club and Normand’s Restaurant, after earning my chops as a Kitchen Leader at Earl’s Restaurant.
An athlete I am not, so going to the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 as the lead chef for Alberta house and the London Summer Olympics in 2012 as the lead chef for Canada House were lifetime thrills. And while every guest is special, I was truly honoured to cook for Queen Elizabeth II when she visited Edmonton in 2005.
In my spare time, I am a Research Chef, helping companies like Little Potato Company, Nestle and Kitchen Partners develop new food products. You can sometimes catch me on television cooking up a storm with local TV hosts, and I like to think I can help you step up your BBQ game with my cookbook, “The Canadian Barbecue Cookbook”.
I look forward to hosting you in my KITCHEN soon.
