Season 6 - Episode 1
The Next Wave
In the season debut, Host Eden Grinshpan and Head Judge Mark McEwan welcome 11 chefs, representing the next generation of Canadian culinary stars, to compete in the most prestigious cooking competition in the country and to battle it out for the title of Canada’s Top Chef. For their first QuickFire Challenge, Chef McEwan sets the bar in a grueling, four-round, precision skills challenge. Later, in the Elimination Challenge, the chefs are asked to re-imagine a dish made famous by a Canadian culinary trailblazer. It’s a star-studded tasting table for the first elimination when Eden, Chef McEwan, and resident judges Chris Nuttall-Smith, Mijune Pak, and Janet Zuccarini are joined by culinary icons Susur Lee, Rob Feenie and Anne Yarymowich.
