An elegant & delicious home-cooked dinner doesn’t have to be difficult or time-consuming — if you have a few good tricks up your sleeve. Join professional comedian and Masterchef Canada alumnus Ben Miner for a fun, hands-on walkthrough of three sure-to-impress, but easier-than-it-looks recipes.
Tender lambchops in a garlic, thyme and lemon marinade; crimini mushroom risotto with white wine & parmesan, and a deceptively simple no-bake cheesecake with fruit coulis. This is the kind of menu that will earn you oohs & aahhs – and maybe a third date – but they never have to know how quick and easy it is to put together.
Ben Miner has been performing at comedy clubs for the past 16 years, coast to coast, from Just for Laughs in Montreal to the Vancouver Comedy Festival to NXNE in Toronto, working with Jim Jefferies, Lewis Black and Russell Peters among others. When he’s not on stage, Ben’s still behind a mic at the long-running program on SiriusXM Comic Stripped. Ben has been featured on Recipe to Riches and was a top 16 cook on the first season of Masterchef Canada.
