Q&A with a top Canadian chef

Chef Corbin Tomaszeski tells us why he’s getting behind families facing prostate cancer
Why is supporting Prostate Cancer Canada important to you?

I lost an uncle to this horrible disease all because of the stigma attached to it - meaning men don't like to talk about it and ignore the symptoms and preventative care that is necessary. So if I can share a personal story and the impact it had on our family, perhaps it will encourage other men to visit their family physician and seek preventative care.

Additionally, as a father of three young boys, I owe it to them to stay healthy, part of which means booking an annual physical that includes discussing my prostate health.

How are you supporting men and their families facing prostate cancer?

I’ve been involved in different events and campaigns over the years for Prostate Cancer Canada. This year, I’m taking part in their first Celebrity Battle of the BBQ presented by Hill Street Beverage Company. This incredible event brings awareness and raises fund for Prostate Cancer Canada, so that together we can save and improve more lives.

I’ll be grilling alongside teams vying to be the best grillers. As an avid griller myself, I’m excited for the event, and to share some tips and tricks, as well as a yummy recipe to cook up on the grill.

What is the most interesting ingredient you've ever grilled?

Fresh avocado filled with ceviche and lime.

What's the best grilling tip you could give aspiring grillers?

Always pre-heat and clean your BBQ or grill! Rub a halved onion (cut side down) on the grill to remove excess debris. It also adds a sweet onion flavour to the grill and any items you place on top.

  3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and grill until juices run clear (10-12 minutes).  Remove from heat and cool completely. Slice into bite-sized pieces
  4. Roll the pizza dough out to ¼ inch thick.  Brush olive oil on both sides. Preheat BBQ to 300 degrees.Spray the BBQ with non-stick cooking spray or oil. Place the rolled pizza dough onto the hot grill and cook until the bottom becomes golden brown.  Flip the pizza over and continue to cook other side
  5. While the pizza is still on the grill, brush the top, grilled side with roasted garlic, top with grated cheese, diced tomato, sliced-grilled chipotle chicken and charred corn.  Close the BBQ lid and continue to cook until the cheese has melted.  Remove from heat and cut into wedges
  6. Combine the yogurt and lime juice and drizzle it lightly over the baked pizza. Garnish with fresh cilantro and serve while still warm.
