Chef Michael’s Kitchen: Grilling – Grilled Steaks with Boursin Bacon Baked Potatoes

To Michael, the only thing better than a grilled New York steak is a grilled New York steak sitting next to a twice baked potato. Especially when it’s oozing with Boursin cheese, bacon and sharp horseradish!


Chef Michael’s Kitchen: Grilling – Grilled Apple Pizza

September 27, 2011 

Few foods are as fun or as flavourful as pizza, especially when you make it yourself. As easy as it may be to get delivery, it’s just as easy and far more satisfying to make it yourself.  Skip the tomatoes, use another round red fruit and grill the whole works!
