Celebrity chef and author Selwyn Richards will be featured in the upcoming National Women's Show, doing a series of demos; Friday November 7th, at 7:15pm, November 8th and 9th, at 2:15pm. Working with show participant Grace Foods, Chef Selwyn will be bringing a taste of the Caribbean to Toronto, introducing show attendees to the lively and delicious flavors of island cuisine.

Caribbean cuisine has been increasing in popularity as the Toronto culinary scene looks to foreign lands for new inspiration and flavors. From spicy jerk sauces to the succulent fruits of the tropics, Caribbean foods bring the warmth of the islands to Canada, even during the coldest months of winter. According to Chef Selwyn, "The best part of having a career as a professional chef is sharing delicious, exotic meals with people who may have never experienced them before-and doing so in a way that is healthy and nutritious."

Chef Selwyn's demos will be accentuated by a line of easy-to-use sauces made by Grace Foods. Janice Harada, Marketing Manager of Grace Kennedy (Ontario) Inc., states, "We are pleased to announce our support of the National Women's Show, and Chef Selwyn Richards' demos in particular. It will be exciting to see how he integrates our sauces into his recipes. Grace products are created for all consumers who wish to bring the taste of the islands into their kitchens. The products are easy to use at home in a variety of dishes, and add that extra bit of flavor that elevates a meal to the next level."

The National Women's Show will run on November 7th, 8th, and 9th at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
