Salt chef has dreams of TV stardom
HE already has a lot on his plate, but celebrity Salt chef Steven Snow would not mind hosting his own TV cooking show.
The Fins head chef told the Tweed Daily News there had been discussion in the past with TV executives about hosting his own program.
Mr Snow, who can currently be seen every Saturday on TV show Guide to the Good Life, said it would be a great opportunity.
“There has been talk about doing my own show before,” Mr Snow said.
“I would love to do it though but it would have to be interesting.
“When they first asked me I wasn't sure because I see a lot of TV cooking shows and I wonder what they're thinking.
“I'm not sure if it would happen but I would love to do it.”
Mr Snow said if he starred in his own show it would have to be shot in the Tweed.
“It would create a lot of interest in the place. We've got a fantastic area here,” he said.
“The people are extremely cool in this area.”
Mr Snow said he has been enjoying his time on Guide to the Good Life, which is in its second season on Channel 7.
It features various life-style segments including travel, motoring, home and finance advice.
Mr Snow hosts regular food and cooking segments on the program.
“I look at our show and think it's great. People really seem to love it,” he said.
“I get some emails about it, people really love it.
“I love cooking and teaching and having a joke, even if it's about myself.
“It's a bit of fun, it's different. If I learn something or it's interesting or different, I like it.”
Filming for the season, which was shot on the Tweed, wrapped up last month.
“We've been all around; it's at my house, at other peoples' houses, at Fins, at Fingal and at Byron Bay.”
Mr Snow said he was happy to share his top tips during the show.
“I always try to give away as many tricks and secrets as I can in the show,” he said.
“There are lots of tricks so people can have quick, nutritious and healthy meals at home on hand.
“We've even done the correct way to cook octopus because not many people know how.
“We've also got simple stuff like how to cook a steak and how to tell if it's rare or medium rare.”
Already covered this season include food for love and seduction and the proper way to barbecue a fish.
“I would love to do a third season ... if they asked me,” he said.
