To be deeply passionate about one craft is often all a person could hope for. But to be passionate about two and combine them both in one job? One could say that Chef Larry De Vries of Crocus Plains Regional Secondary School in Brandon hit the career-jackpot. His love of culinary arts and his dedication to educating young people came through in spades during our time in his kitchen. Principal photography is complete for our portrayal of Larry in this Patchworks episode and our shoots were full of energy and a real sense of esprit de corps between the teaching staff and the students. Now the task of assembling his story in the edit suite begins and it is our hope that viewers are as inspired by Larry’s story as we were. Our heartfelt thanks to the staff, students and most of all, Larry De Vries for being such gracious and wonderful hosts during production. Until the next production update – Bon appetit!
