How fathers helped celebrity chefs

Do you ever watch celebrity chefs whip up an exquisite, seemingly impossible, scrumptious-looking dish on television and wonder where the chef journey began for them?

For chefs to make it to the top of their profession, oftentimes they were influenced, encouraged and supported by a family member, a friend of the family or someone else close to them.

For Father’s Day, we caught up with some of the region’s top TV chefs to ask about their influences.

Not surprisingly, many of us are strongly influenced by mothers, grandmothers and other women in our lives who knew their way around the kitchen.

But many of the chefs we spoke to also pointed to fathers who cooked meals for the family, showed them first-hand how putting together a simple meal could be fun, easy and delicious.
