Food, Sweat and Tears

Food, Sweat and Tears

Episode 3


Things really heat up as four chefs tug at our heartstrings in this emotional episode of Chopped Canada. In the appetizer round, the competition tries not to choke on processed cheese and baked beans.  The entrée forces them to sharpen their skills with razor clams and hickory sticks.  Another family favourite makes an appearance in the dessert round, finding one chef right in his comfort zone.
