Casting directors, Jennifer Pratt and Cliff Dempster, of the new Food Network show Top Chef Canada will be at the EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival to meet B.C.’s best professional cooks at the Vancouver Convention Centre, from Friday, May 28 to Sunday, May 30. They are accepting applications from chefs who think they have what it takes to be named Canada’s best chef. Full applications can be downloaded here.
“We are on the lookout for the best, brightest and most passionate chefs in the Vancouver area,” said Pratt. “Being on this show is an amazing opportunity for local culinary talent to not only win a dream prize of $100,000 to kick-start their culinary dream, but also showcase their cooking chops to the entire nation.”
Top Chef Canada will hand pick a group of the country’s best culinary talent to battle in a gruelling competition that will put their skills and creativity to the test. Overseeing the action will be head judge, Mark McEwan. The series premieres spring 2011 on Food Network Canada.
