Michael Bonacini (Oliver & Bonacini), Massimo Capra (Mistura) and Jason Parsons (Peller Estates) are individually accomplished chefs. They are also individually accomplished broadcasters, each having a recurring role in the local Toronto morning show CityLine. Six years ago, the producers of CityLine decided to bring the three amigos together for a cooking segment and ‘3 Chefs’ was born. Now, the Toronto Triumvirate has just published their first collaborative cookbook 3 Chefs: The Kitchen Men. I caught up with Bonacini and Parsons, and Capra separately, this week to talk about the book, live TV and working together for the interview below.
