My First Dish
In the season debut, the 16 chefs arrive in Toronto where they meet for the first time and size up the competition. For their first Quickfire Challenge, head judge Chef Mark McEwan puts the chefs’ skills to test in a culinary relay race. Later in the Elimination Challenge, the chefs must recreate the very first dish that inspired them to become a chef. Chef Chuck Hughes (Chuck’s Day Off) joins as guest judge.
