TORONTO — A gaggle of top Canadian chefs are lending their talents to the KitchenAid Cook for the Cure Culinary Showdown, which offers foodies the chance to fundraise for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) and earn a spot cooking alongside chefs such as Lynn Crawford, Chuck Hughes, Mark McEwan and Vikram Vij.
“With the KitchenAid Cook-for-the-Cure event, we’sre challenging foodies across Canada to put their best plate forward by doing what they love for the cure,” said Aleksandra Hoszowski, senior brand manager, KitchenAid Canada. “This event is a great opportunity for passionate home chefs to get up close and personal with their favourite culinary idols while supporting breast cancer research and the valuable programs funded by CBCF.”
The top 50 foodie fundraisers will compete on stage with celebrity chefs in a challenge that will ask five teams of 10 to create three unique dishes. Other prizes for top fundraisers include the chance to participate in the Culinary Showdown’s Celebrity Chefs School or to be a part of the audience on Dec. 7 at Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York Hotel.
In 2013, KitchenAid Canada aims to donate $100,000 or more to the CBCF through its Cook-for-the-Cure sponsorship and Pink Product Collection sales.
