Dana McCauley, Canadian Food Expert Returns to TV on Recipe to Riches

"This Season The Show Will Be Even More Intense"

New Season Premieres October 17 at 9pm ET/8pm PT on Food Network Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 2, 2012) - One of Canada's foremost food innovators is ready to hit the air again as part of the second season judging trio for Recipe to Riches.

Dana McCauley, international food consultant extraordinaire - and author/co-author of five cookbooks - says she's excited to bring her brand of tough-yet fair love back to the show. "Season two is even more intense than season one," she said. "This year brings us some very good cooks but taste isn't everything. If a finalist's recipe is going to make it onto grocery store shelves, well, let's just say the recipe better be able to withstand the rigors of commercialization."

McCauley would know. She's the product development and innovation director for Canadian institution, Janes Family Foods Ltd. and knows what makes food palatable. She's used her innovation and food expertise to create dozens of crowd-pleasing food products for grocery stores around the globe; and as a chef, her talents know no bounds.

Perhaps that is why she's an acknowledged food trend and innovation expert. McCauley has lent her credence coast-to-coast on Breakfast Television, The Morning Show, and she's a frequent contributor to Grocery Business Magazine as well as past contributor to Canadian Living, Chatelaine, Canadian House & Home and a slew of other publications as well as former food editor for Gardening Life, Style at Home and Homemakers. The Toronto Star, Foodservice & Hospitality, Canadian Grocer and The National Post are but a few more publications that call upon her in-depth knowledge of the food industry often, too.

With a keen sense of style and taste, powerful presence and unparalleled knowledge of the food industry, the dynamic McCauley is brimming with excitement to return to her judge's chair. "Home cooks don't get enough credit for their prowess in the kitchen. I'm just counting down the days until I can share our studio experience with all of Canada!" says McCauley.
