Bob Blumer Headlines the Celebrity Cooking Stage at the Fraser Valley Food Show
Gastronaut, culinary artist and seven-time Guinness World Record holder, Bob Blumer is the creator and host of the television series, Surreal Gourmet and Glutton for Punishment and host of the World’s Weirdest Restaurants. His show airs in over twenty countries world-wide.
Blumer transforms ordinary ingredients into wow-inspiring dishes through simple cooking methods and whimsical presentations that have become his culinary trademark. He is the author of five acclaimed cookbooks and is co-author of the best selling Pizza on the Grill. Publishers Weekly summed up his most recent book Glutton for Pleasure as: “Equal parts memoir, lavish book art, multi-genre soundtrack and culinary de tour force.”
Bob is an ambassador for Second Harvest in Toronto, and helps raise funds for several other noble causes. He also makes personal appearances and presents his signature surreal meals around the globe. In 2013 he returned to his artistic roots, creating a show of 25 surreal wine glasses and decanters he exhibited in Napa, CA, and designing a Surreal Gourmet Suite for Toronto’s legendary Gladstone Hotel. When he is not travelling for work or pleasure – which is most of the time – the transplanted Canadian cycles daily in the canyons near his home in Hollywood Hills, doing his best to stay in shape for his next big adventure.
Watch Bob create his famous Gluten-Free grilled pizza right on stage; and talk about other recipes from his latest top selling cookbook: Pizza on the Grill.
