Season 7 - Episode 1
In the season debut, Host Eden Grinshpan and Head Judge Mark McEwan welcome 11 chefs, representing the coming of age of the Canadian culinary scene, to compete in the most prestigious cooking competition in the country and to battle it out for the title of Canada’s Top Chef.
In a never-seen-before, high-stakes QuickFire, one dish will determine a chef’s destiny for the entire competition. Later, in the Elimination Challenge, the chefs are asked to take inspiration from a recipe handed down to them from a loved-one and reimagine it into a Top Chef Quality dish. In the first tasting of the season Eden and Chef McEwan, are joined by resident judges Chris Nuttall-Smith, Mijune Pak, and Janet Zuccarini.
