Professional donut-makers from across Canada will duke it out for a $10,000 prize in each episode of Food Network Canada‘s newest culinary throw down, Donut Showdown. Under the hungry eye of international ‘gastronaut’ Danny Boome, 42 competitors will vie (and fry!) for the affection of Head Judge David Rocco and fellow expert judges Maggie McKeown and Zane Caplansky. Creativity, crullers and cream will collide over two deliciously challenging rounds in each half hour episode. Food Network Canada went behind the scenes with 3 of our judges in Toronto last week for a sneak peek at what’s to come. Check out our Showdown snap shots, and share your decorated donuts with us by tagging your Instagram shots with #DonutShowdown and @DonutShowdown on Twitter.
