Mairlyn Smith


Mairlyn Smith is the only professional home economist in Canada who is also an alumnus of the Second City Comedy Troupe, making her the self-proclaimed Funniest P.H.Ec. in the Entire World. A popular media personality, MC and key note speaker Mairlyn is also a Regular Guest Expert on the award winning national daytime television show Cityline as well as a regular on Toronto’s Breakfast TV. Among her many claims to fame, her two favourites are: dropping the puck at a NHL hockey game between the Vancouver Canucks and the Toronto Maple Leafs and that she has travelled from coast to coast eating her way across Canada. Mairlyn’s forte is her ability to mix learning with laughter. She is the author of six award winning cookbooks. Her latest cookbook Homegrown: Celebrating the Canadian foods we grow, raise and produce is a collaboration with the members of the Ontario Home Economics Association which was released in December 2015 and is another best seller. Cue the fireworks!
