On October 15, I make my debut on CBC's Dragons' Den as one of two new members of the Dragons team. I'm very proud to be included in such an incredibly illustrious line-up of respected business people and to take my place alongside them on such a great show.
The celebrity chef's newest enterprise opened on June 2 and for the time being it needs its owner's attention. "It's like a baby," he says of the 130-seat restaurant with an exterior so eye-catching you'll think it belongs in Times Square, not a suburban strip mall.
It takes time for kitchens and restaurants to hit their stride. Geoff Hopgood, based on the most recent meal I had at his establishment, is in the zone. The former chef at the revered Black Hoof has e...

I hope you'll sit back, put on some tunes, and take a few moments to check out all the ideas HuffPost contributors shared for keeping Canada strong and free.
Since I came to Canada in 1989, it's been very important to me to spread the word of Indian cuisine to as many people as possible. I think it is gaining momentum, but attitudes towards ethnic food, and the boundaries around the way it is presented, still need to evolve.

So I am inviting you!
