One year after its smash-hit debut, MASTERCHEF CANADA is back to dish out a second season of food-driven drama and achievement! The ultimate culinary competition offers home cooks a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to demonstrate their skill and passion, as they compete for the title of Canada’s next MASTERCHEF.
Thousands of cooks from across the country apply, but only the Top contenders are asked to audition for the MASTERCHEF CANADA judges. Each participant presents their signature dish in hopes of earning a coveted white apron. Only the most talented and creative home cooks will move forward to the MASTERCHEF CANADA Kitchen.
Each week, the MASTERCHEF CANADA Judges inspire the home cooks to grow and evolve, pushing them toward culinary greatness. Internationally-acclaimed chefs and restaurateurs Michael Bonacini (co-owner of the Oliver & Bonacini restaurant empire), Claudio Aprile (chef/owner of the celebrated Origin restaurants) and Alvin Leung (owner of the Michelin-starred Bo Innovation in Hong Kong) are the firm-but-fair mentors who take these amateurs on a journey from home cook to haute cuisine.
Over the fifteen-episode season, the home cooks face a series of dramatic challenges both inside and outside the MASTERCHEF CANADA Kitchen. Designed to test their palates, food knowledge, fortitude and culinary skills, these challenges drive them past their limits toward unprecedented levels of achievement. Each week at least one competitor is eliminated, and as the field narrows, the pressure increases. A single misstep can spell disaster; a well-time triumph can turn the entire competition around, as the country’s most talented home cooks vie to become Canada’s next MASTERCHEF.
