The official book launch for my "best of" cookbook, "The Best In Your Kitchen" was last week and it was a great success. This book is a collection of the best recipes spanning my career as a Red Seal Chef so far. There are also many new, never before published, recipes included as well. With over 150 recipes inside that have been tried, tested, and true by countless numbers of my readers, students, followers, and fans, this book will help you to be "The Best In Your Kitchen".

Pictured above is me with my beautiful wife and our two children at the launch. Unfortunately my two oldest children couldn't make the event. The book, totaling over 230 pages, is available for purchase on my website for $20 + $9.95 for shipping & handling to anywhere in Canada. If you live in the Fraser Valley of BC you can currently also purchase a copy (or more) from Lepp Farm Market in Abbotsford or The Farm Store in Chilliwack (Yarrow) for $19.99+gst. It is also available at Prime at

The book launch was held at Paliotti's Restaurant  in Abbotsford, BC, Canada. The owners Joe & Louise Paliotti welcomed us with opened arms as we have done a couple events there already. One of these past events was my appearance on the TV program Chopped Canada broadcasted on Food Network Canada. We organized a live viewing party and over 100 people showed up to cheer me on while enjoying some great food, drink, and company. For those of you who have not yet seen that episode, it is still available for viewing by clicking here:

The other event we held recently at Paliotti's was a "Chef Dez & Friends" evening where we entertained a number of guests with cooking from my Big Green Egg and information on Chef Dez Culinary Tours (more coming about these tours in future blog posts. The Big Green Egg portion of that event was sponsored by a local Abbotsford BGE Dealer: Blackwood Building Supplies.

If you were at the book launch of "The Best In Your Kitchen", thank you so much for your support. If have obtained a copy, or will be soon, and/or have purchased a copy as a gift - I appreciate it very much. I also want to say thank you to all the people that have been promoting the book in social media. If you choose to do this I would like to kindly suggest the following hashtags: #ChefDez and #TheBestInYourKitchen

Until next time... Happy Cooking!
