News came down this morning that Top Chef Canada will be welcoming a new host for season 2: the beautiful Canadian actress and model Lisa Ray.
"I am a big fan of the Top Chef series and thrilled to help spotlight some of the amazing culinary talent right here in my hometown," Lisa says. "I'm looking forward to a challenging yet delicious season."
Born in Etobicoke to an Indian father and a Polish mother, Lisa is perhaps best known for her roles in Water, Bollywood/Hollywood, and 2009's Cooking with Stella. Her hosting credits include The Genies and The Giller Prize, as well as her own entertainment show in India.
Top Chef Canada season 2 will premiere on Food Network Canada on March 12, 2012 at 10pm ET/PT.
We caught up with Lisa to get her thoughts on becoming the new host in the video below:
