Abbotsford Agrifair 2007

I just completed another 16 cooking shows over the August long weekend at the Abbotsford Agrifair, and yesterday my voice was in recovery mode... not good for everyday talking but great for singing low Johnny Cash songs!
The crowds at the shows were phenominal, and I met many great people - one of the things I love most about what I do. My cooking stage was indoors this year (last year we had a great outdoor covered venue right beside the consessions) and thus I was a bit skeptical that we would see the same kind of numbers... but because of the great impression we left on everyone last year, they searched me out, found me, and enjoyed another series of shows.
This year's cooking stage was sponsored by the BC Blueberry Council and therefore 3 of the 5 recipes I performed were, of course, made with this incredible fruit! A big thank you to everyone that attended my shows. You're the ones that make the cooking stage a regular part of the Fair and I am very grateful. Also, a big thanks to everyone involved in running Agrifair, and I am looking forward to working with you all again in August 2008!

Hey Dez, I only caught one of the shows but I enjoyed it just as much as previous years. It was great to see you there again.
