Ted Reader is an award-winning chef and food entertainer, who’s parlayed his passion for food into a culinary tour de force that includes more than a dozen cookbooks, shelves of food products, live culinary performances, TV and radio cooking shows and appearances as well as culinary demonstrations, a catering company and teaching.
Known for his pyrotechnic charm and fearless culinary spirit, it’s no surprise that GQ magazine labeled him the “Crazy Canuck Barbecue Kingpin”. The dude just loves to cook!
Ted’s quest for creating “real food for real people” has seen this high-profile culinary barbecue guru demonstrate his air for grilling in all venues from swanky ballrooms to the Pacific Ocean to a downtown Toronto parking lot.
Ted once cooked the largest hamburger weighing in at 590lbs, a huge accomplishment for his career. Ted recently launched two books, Beerlicious and the Complete Idiots Guide to Smoking Foods, and his newest cookbook is Gastro Grilling, with 135 delicious full color recipes.
