Canada’s Rock Star Chef

Windsor, Canada is just one hour from us so I would have thought I would have been more aware of what is going on in the food scene in a country so close. That’s why I was shocked to not have Stefano Faita on my radar screen. Afterall,  this guy is BIG! Chef/Cookbook Author/Restaurant Owner/TV […]

Pasta with kale, carrot, and onions
