Canadian Original, World Broadcast Premiere
Canada’s most prestigious culinary competition is back. This season we’re going coast, to coast, to coast, to find the next generation of chefs competing for the title of Canada’s Top Chef.
For five seasons, Top Chef Canada has been a ratings mega-hit for Food Network Canada, and catapulted winners Dale McKay, Carl Heinrich, Matt Stowe, René Rodriguez and Nicole Gomes to Canadian culinary stardom.
The epic sixth season introduces an impressive new generation of professional chefs who will prove their masterful skills in grueling challenges. Fighting for Canada’s most prestigious culinary title, chefs are rewarded for their skill and creativity in each Quickfire round. They will cook for their lives and fight to stay in the competition in the high-stakes Elimination Challenges, where one chef will be told to “pack their knives and go.”
The competing chefs will be judged by a panel of Canada’s most refined palates led by returning head judge, superstar chef and restaurateur, Mark McEwan. Each week, Mark is joined by host Eden Grinshpan (Eden Eats, Chopped Canada) and resident judges: food blogger and adventurer Mijune Pak, acclaimed culinary journalist Chris Nuttall-Smith and powerhouse restaurateur Janet Zuccarini. Throughout the season, the judging panel is joined by a series of renowned culinary masters and experts from here at home and abroad, each weighing in on the search for Canada’s next Top Chef.
Top Chef Canada is the homegrown version of NBCUniversal’s Emmy Award-winning hit series Top Chef. Now in its 15th season airing in the U.S., Top Chef is produced in 21 countries around the world, making it one of the most successful culinary TV formats in the world.
