“There is a strong appetite among Canadian viewers for this kind of format and no shortage of culinary talent to be showcased,” said Barb Williams, senior vice-president of Content for Shaw Media, parent of Food Network Canada.
Each week the show’s contestants will compete in one of the seven pre-determined food categories. The dishes will be judged by a panel that will pick the best recipe in each category, which will then become a President’s Choice product. Each category-winning chef will win $25,000, and a grand prize winner will be chosen and awarded $250,000 on the season finale.
There is no news on when the show will air, but open auditions begin in Halifax Feb.5 and end in Toronto Feb. 26.
