Blank Canvas show host Amanda Coulson invites culinary artists into the studio tonight and discuss how through both visual and culinary arts we can better form a coherent national identity. Bahamian master Chef Simeon Hall (pictured right) and visiting celebrity Chef from Chicago, Judson Todd Allen (left), talk about the identification and support of local dishes and flavours and how food can bring people together and push a nation forward. Chef Allen is the host of his own television show on the Food Network and is visiting The Bahamas to learn about what makes our dishes unique; Chef Hall—a major supporter of locally grown produce, healthy eating, and teaching children to learn to cook with what grows around us—has been showing him the farms, animals, fruits and vegetables of our islands.
