MCrady’s Chef Sean Brock was barely done with the South Beach and Charleston Wine + Food festivals before a Canadian television crew was in his kitchen to film a segment.
Last Wednesday, Brock took Massimo Capra, a celebrity chef from Toronto, to his farm out on Wadmalaw, and then on Thursday they spent the day in the McCrady’s kitchen cooking up a feast for the program, which is called The Market Chef. The show focuses on the people and food of an area.
Marc Collins over at Circa 1886 also got a visit from the Canadians. Frank Greco’s show The Travel Guy provides viewers with a guide to a destination, and Collins cooked up a local specialty for a segment on that program.
The producer Colene Sharpe tells us the Charleston Area Convention & Visitors Bureau was instrumental in bringing the shows to town.
So, don’t be surprised to see an influx of Canadian snowbirds wash up in Charleston sometime next year.
