For Immediate Release
TORONTO, March 13, 2017 – Corus Entertainment announced today its full menu of brand partnerships for the epic return of Top Chef Canada in its All-Stars season. Canada’s most prestigious culinary competition seamlessly integrates new and returning series sponsors and partners this season including Monogram, Interac Flash, Sensodyne, Beringer, Krave Jerky and Braun Household Appliances. Top Chef Canada: All-Stars premieres Sunday, April 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Food Network Canada.
“The much-anticipated return of hit series Top Chef Canada provides the ultimate opportunity for brands,” said Barb McKergow, Vice President, Client Marketing, Corus Entertainment. “Through seamless integrations that become part of the fabric of the series, it delivers an unrivalled client experience for brand partners to connect with a wide and engaged audience.”
The stakes – and prizes – are high for chefs in this cutthroat competition. Top Chef Canada: All-Stars welcomes back Monogram for their fifth consecutive season as the exclusive large appliance supplier and a grand prize sponsor. Prominently featured within the series, Monogram outfits the set kitchen with finely crafted appliances, provides cash prizes for two episodic challenges and awards the grand prize winner with a brand-new Monogram kitchen valued at $25,000. First time sponsor of Top Chef Canada, Interac Association joins as a grand prize sponsor, providing $100,000 to Canada’s all-star Top Chef. Integrated throughout the series, Interac Flash acts as the perfect companion for the chefs to shop for every ingredient they need to masterfully create exquisite dishes.
Sensodyne jumps on board this season as the series’ exclusive sponsor of the show site, home to behind-the-scenes videos and articles, original chef audition tapes, full episodes and recaps, photo galleries, prize giveaways and more. The brand is also providing a unique twist in an episode-specific challenge, connecting tooth sensitivity to the culinary world in a creative way.
Official wine provider Beringer is not only stocked in the Top Chef Canada kitchen pantry and locker room but also readily available to the chefs and guests at offsite events this season. Featured in an episodic challenge, Beringer has also teamed up with Top Chef Canada: All-Stars for a co-branded consumer contest, which will give viewers the opportunity to win a trip for two to Beringer Vineyards in Napa Valley. Promotion for the contest will run on-air and in liquor stores across Canada (excluding Quebec) beginning April 24, 2017.
Also upping the ante in episodic challenges this season are Krave Jerky, with a variety of flavours readily stocked in the pantry and locker room, and the series’ key small appliance provider, Braun, offering the chefs a wide range of innovative household appliances to create their most inspired meals.
Top Chef Canada: All-Stars debuts Sunday, April 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Food Network Canada with an all-star roster of talent at the judges’ table. For the first time in Top Chef Canada history, chefs from past seasons return to face cutthroat challenges and bold critiques from Canada’s most refined palates as they battle for the title that has eluded them all. Top Chef Canada is the homegrown version of the hit Emmy Award-winning NBCUniversal Series Top Chef and is produced by Insight Production Company Ltd. in association with Food Network Canada.
