“from grandma’s comfort food to high-end dining”
Being a stay-at-home dad hasn’t stopped Brent from cooking. It has just changed his focus. As The Simple Chef, Brent offers a wide range of cooking classes through Wild Serendipity Foods and the City of Saskatoon.
Brent is very outgoing and enjoys the classes. “It’s fun to teach people something,” he says. “You’re interacting and getting feedback.” His favourite class is Night Out as it’s very open-ended. “It’s more contemporary and can respond to the weather,” says Brent “We’ll cook lentils tonight because it’s so cold.”
Brent also really enjoys in-home catering. You choose the theme, the menu and the budget, and Brent will do the shopping, cooking and clean-up.
Comfort Food with French/Italian Roots
“The more I cook, the more I appreciate really simple foods,” says Brent. Food is a link to who we are or where we’ve been. And it’s very social. When Brent cooks, he is constantly reminded of his grandmother, and he often asks himself, “What would grandma do?” Some of his favourite dishes are risotto, lentil stew, tourtière (a family recipe) and quiche.
