Canadore’s Next Top Chef Competition Tomorrow

Feb 28, 2019 | Canadore College

(NORTH BAY, ONT.) -- High school students from across the province will be competing for the title of Canadore College’s Next Top Chef tomorrow.

The competition will see six teams of students from Pembroke, Parry Sound, Sturgeon Falls, Englehart and Almaguin Highlands rival for the victory.

They are tasked with creating the best overall culinary presentation of a three-course meal: cream of mushroom soup, Supreme of Chicken Chasseur with Chateau Potatoes, glazed carrots and steamed broccoli, and pastry cream paired with sweet dough.

“As chefs, we are always trying to achieve our personal best,” said Canadore chef and school of culinary arts professor Derek Lawday. “The kitchen is a very demanding work environment made up of a complex set of variables, including time constraints. Year after year I am delighted by the students’ achievements in this competition. I’m looking forward to Thursday.”

Menus will be graded by a panel of judges based on stringent criteria, including hygiene, time and product utilization, preparation, presentation and taste.

First prize winners will receive their first semester tuition to Canadore College’s two-year culinary management diploma program.

Date:               Thursday, February 28, 2019

Time:              9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.; judging begins at 1 p.m.; winners announced at 3 p.m.

Location:        100 Elements Dining Room (D113), College Drive Campus, 100 College                               Drive, North Bay, Ont.
