The show will feature shopping tips, simple easy to make dishes and other recipes you can enjoy making at home. He also features great shortcuts to help you get back to your busy families.
“I want to make mealtime matter. Food should be fun, and it should be something you can share with your family in the kitchen or around the table,” said Chef Ashton, while he was cooking at the Fisher House, a home for soldiers and their families while they are receiving treatment.
