season 1
S01E03: May 24

The May 24 holiday is the most important weekend in Canada, marking the official start of the summer camping and cottage season. Sure, Alex and Jeff have been camping all year round, but usually it's the glorious May 24 weekend that sees The Cooking Show crew expand ranks.

Killarney Provincial Park is once again the setting for this exciting occasion, and Chef Johan Maes is baking Polish buns over the campfire before he turns live lobsters into a rich and regal Risotto. The next day Alex is braising beef and deep-frying French fries over the open fire, he then puts it all together to make the quintessential Canadian dish Prime Rib Poutine.
