Season 7 - Episode 5
The Battle of Bao
In a very special QuickFire Challenge, Top Chef Canada pairs with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada’s Kid Food Nation to challenge the chefs to take an ingredient that kids normally hate and use it in a dish that any kid would love. The chefs must please some very particular palates including Top Chef U.S. All-Star winner, acclaimed chef/owner of Juniper & Ivy in San Diego, Calif. and father or two, Richard Blais. It’s a food hall takeover and in this Elimination Challenge, teams of two must take a restaurant concept and translate it into a high-quality, fast-casual dining experience for 150 patrons at Toronto’s Assembly Chef’s Hall. A double-elimination has everyone on edge as both chefs on the losing team are sent home.
