From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ted Reader is a Canadian chef and author of several cookbooks who is most well known in his current role as host of the television show King of the Q.

A native of Paris, Ontario and a graduate of George Brown College’s culinary management program, Ted credits his mother as well as his grandfather for giving him a passion for cooking. Watching popular television chef Bruno Gerussi on TV after school, he would enlist his mother's aid in preparing the same dishes at home. Growing up to hold positions in local restaurants, he eventually became executive chef at the Skydome Hotel in Toronto. He would later hold a five year tenure as executive chef of President's Choice, where he helped develop such products as the PC Real Jerk Wings and PC Thick and Cheesy Burgers.

Still living in Toronto, Ted is a huge proponent of the barbecue, a veteran of several television shows, and the author of numerous cookbooks. For nine years Ted was the featured grill chef on the series Cottage Country and he was also a team chef with Cart Racing for three seasons. He was the Chef for drivers Adrian Fernandez and Roberto Moreno during this time. He is the author of several cookbooks including Sticks and Stones: The Art of Grilling on Plank, Vine and Stone, which was awarded the Silver Medal in the Cuisine Canada 2000 Cookbook Awards. His most recent grilling cookbooks, Sticky Fingers & Tenderloins and Hot, Sticky and On Fire, are both Canadian best sellers. In March 2003, Hot & Sticky BBQ, a compilation of both books will be released in the United States.

Ted is currently the host of his own television show King of the Q, a show devoted entirely to his own barbecue grilling skills where he demonstrates his flair for making cooking easy and entertaining. He also makes regular guest appearances on CTV’s Canada AM, Toronto’s AM 640, and Q-107.
