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

The competition will see 8 teams of students from Almaguin Highlands, Kemptville, North Bay, Parry Sound rival for the victory.

They are tasked with creating the best culinary presentation of a three course meal: minestrone soup, Supreme of Chicken Chasseur with Chateau Potatoes, glazed carrots and steamed broccoli, and an individual fruit tart with raspberry coulis.

“This year’s menu is definitely ambitious, but as always, I know that we will see surprising variations and impressive results from these aspiring chefs,” said Canadore chef and school of culinary arts professor Derek Lawday.

Menus will be graded by a panel of judged 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.
