Rob Rainford is a Canadian chef, author of Rob Rainford's Born to Grill (published May 8, 2012 by Appetite by Random House) and former host of Licence to Grill (LTG) on Food Network Canada, Discovery Home in the U.S. and Asian Food Channel across Asia. The format of the show involves Rainford hosting a get-together at his home for one reason or another, and preparing meals on his grills for the occasion. The different "occasions" provide the impetus for the food choices, and allow Rainford the opportunity to demonstrate different techniques. One such "occasion" involved Rainford and his guests watching the movie The Godfather on television. This gave Rainford the opportunity to prepare an Italian meal, and to impersonate Marlon Brando on camera. Another occasion involved a "seventies party", which gave Rainford (who is bald) the opportunity to wear a 1970s "Afro" wig.
