Chef Jeff Massey is back in the 'Wack on Saturday with some tips for grilling fruit and more.

Fraser Valley’s celebrity chef, Jeff Massey, is coming back to the ‘Wack.

He’ll be demonstrating the deliciousness of summer bounty at Minter Country Garden store on Young Road on Saturday, Aug. 18.

After the excellent turnout at the last cooking event in June, he’s decided to do it again in partnership with master gardener Brian Minter.

This time Chef Massey will be showcasing berries and fruit during the free morning demonstration.

He’ll be whipping up a warm compote of blueberries, flavoured with thyme, rosemary and pepper, and pairing it with seared meat and vegetables.

Known for seeking out the freshest ingredients possible, he’ll also be grilling up some orchard fruit, expertly complemented with an array of local cheeses and meats.

Massey, who is executive chef at Restaurant 62 in Abbotsford, was named one of Canada’s Top 40 Foodies Under 40 by Western Living Magazine.

Summer’s Bounty cooking demonstration with Chef Massey is on Saturday, August 18 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Gardening guru Brian Minter will be on hand to answer questions and offer tips on making a garden grow. Attendance is free but space is limited. Register to attend by calling (604) 792-6612.
