New batch of chefs craving Chopped Canada victory

Roster of fresh new chefs reveals for latest edition of Chopped Canada.

Food Network Canada and Paperny Entertainment are cooking up another 13 episodes of the adrenaline-pumping hit Chopped Canada.

The highest rated premiere in Food Network Canada’s history (BBM Canada, PPM data 4/11/11 vs. BBM Canada, PPM data 1/2/14), Chopped Canada is a high-stakes culinary competition series hosted by Dean McDermott (Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off) where four chefs compete before an all-star panel of expert judges.

Episodes continue to air Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT on Food Network Canada, with fresh mystery ingredients, celebrity judges and new competitors hungry for a win.

Following a nationwide search, the next batch of chefs vying to join the growing roster of Chopped Canada champions include, from Kelowna:

Stephanie Schoales, 26,

Frank Sham, 47, and

Evelynn Takoff, 27

Each episode of Chopped Canada pits four chefs against the clock – and each other – for a chance to win $10,000. Cooking off in head-to-head challenges before a rotating panel of expert judges, the competitors put their skill and ingenuity to the test in an attempt to turn a basket of mystery ingredients into an extraordinary, three-course meal within a limited amount of time. Course by course, the judges chop the chefs from the competition until only one remains.

Judges include Susur Lee (Top Chef Masters), Lynn Crawford (Pitchin’ In), Chuck Hughes (Chuck’s Week Off), Michael Smith (Chef Michael’s Kitchen), Roger Mooking (Heat Seekers), Vikram Vij (Top Chef Canada seasons 1 and 2), John Higgins (George Brown College), and Anne Yarymowich (formerly FRANK Restaurant).
