Cook-a-palooza by Brent Garrell
Brent Garell, owner of Mynosh Creations, started his career working as a Human Resource professional in the corporate world. In his spare time he began writing The Cook-a-Palooza Experience, a cookbook designed to lighten the stress of weeknight cooking by pairing popular music suggestions with low-fat recipes. He was a guest on Career Buzz. While writing his book Brent connected with best-selling cookbook author, Kay Mighton Spicer, who mentored him in the art of recipe writing. Upon a friend’s suggestion, he also entered one of his dishes in a recipe contest. His recipe took top prize and Brent was suddenly thrown into the culinary world as he demonstrated his dish at the competition’s finale alongside head judge Chef Michael Olson of the Niagara Culinary Institute. Brent has since traded in his business suit and has been a guest on numerous TV and radio shows. He now offers his energized cooking classes throughout Southern Ontario and has performed cooking demonstrations at events such as the Hamilton Food & Drink Fest and the Good Food Festival on the Food Network’s “Get Cooking” stage.
