Ricardo Ultimate Slow Cooker

To inspire you to think beyond turkey for this holiday season, we bring you Ricardo…and his ham recipe.  

In our Recipe section, we slow cook ham with maple syrup and beer.  I love recipes like this when the kitchen is busy during the holidays – it leaves the oven available to warm up appetizers and roast vegetables.  If you prefer a stove-top version, check out this video:


“Ricardo Larrivée — or simply Ricardo to his fans — is Canada’s most successful bilingual celebrity chef. Over the past twelve years, Ricardo has become a household name in Quebec. Ricardo’s easy-going personality, humour, and charisma has led him to be called ‘Quebec’s answer to Jamie Oliver.” https://www.foodnetwork.ca/shows/ricardo-and-friends/bios/ 

After training in tourism and hospitality as well as broadcasting, Ricardo applied his love of cooking to this training, and developed the well-known brand we’ve all considered truly Canadian.  From his home base in Quebec, Ricardo has expanded his culinary influence throughout the country earning The Order of Canada and Ordre national du Quebec.
