Gold Medal Plates Finale

Submitted by on January 21, 2011 – 4:56 pmNo Comment

Who doesn’t love a good food fight! Canada’s Top Chefs are set to battle for Gold Medal Plates glory in Kelowna, British Columbia next month.

Besides, Road Trips Foodies, when the country’s best chefs congregate for a little creativity in the kitchen, it’s bound to cause a stir. Add inspired menus, an esteemed panel of judges and prestigious culinary hardware to the mix, and it’s more likely to draw a crowd.

Battling it out for number-one-Canadian-chef status, top chefs from eight cities spanning coast to coast will meet at the finale of the Canadian Culinary Championships to vie for Gold Medal Plates glory on February 18 and 19, 2011.

Kelowna, a farm-to-table community in BC’s wine country, and host of the event for the next five years, will set the scene for big-name draws like Vancouver’s Robert Clark (C Restaurant), Niagara’s Frank Dodd (Hillebrand Winery Restaurant) and Montreal’s own Martin Juneau (La Montee).

Their quest? Duke it out in three distinct contests: the Mystery Wine Pairing, where each challenger matches the same vintage with their own locally-sourced creation; the Black Box Competition, which sees two dishes per chef produced with just 60 minutes on the clock; and the Grand Finale, which showcases an innovative dish from each competitor, paired with their choice of Canadian wine.

All proceeds gathered from this competition go straight to champions of a different kind: the Canadian Olympic Foundation, which helps Olympic and Paralympic athletes achieve their own gold medal status. Reason enough to raise a glass.
