About the Show

Recipe to Riches is an 8 x 1 hour competition reality series that gives amateur Canadian cooks an opportunity to share their most delicious, home-grown recipes with the entire country and compete for a grand prize worth $250,000.

Season two reunites the Recipe to Riches expert panel of food judges Laura Calder (French Food at Home) Tony Chapman (Capital C), Dana McCauley (Janes Family Foods) and host Jesse Palmer (Live! with Kelly, ESPN Sunday Night Football, and former The Bachelor star) for a cross Canada search to choose three finalists to compete in each of seven specific food categories.  Recipes are judged based on taste, presentation, originality, the story behind the recipe and its’ suitability to become a mass produced grocery store product.   At the end of each episode, the Executive Chairman of Loblaw Companies, Galen Weston, announces the judges’ choice as the winning recipe that will become the latest addition to the President’s Choice® brand.  That weekend the winning dish is made available in select Loblaw banner stores across the country, giving Canadians an opportunity to try it for themselves, and vote for their ultimate favourite recipe.

At the conclusion of seven episodes, the category winners return for a ‘results showdown’ grand finale.  Canadians will then have an opportunity to vote for the ‘best of the best’ and decide which home cook wins the $250,000 grand prize, taking them from Recipe... to Riches.
