When I was on Top Chef Canada, I would host viewing parties with family and friends when each episode aired. I would make the dish I did on the show for them to enjoy as we watched. Since I didn’t make it to the end, for the semifinal I chose to make this crab dip for everyone instead. Serve it on fries and add gravy (poutine-style), or put it in a wrap, or add it to grilled cheese . . . whatever makes you happy.
