The wall is stacked, the kitchen is prepped and the challenges are set. Today, Food Network Canada announces the fearless and skilled home cooks entering the Wall of Chefs kitchen for a chance to win a $10,000 cash prize starting February 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Hosted by Noah Cappe (Carnival Eats), every episode of Corus Studios Original series Wall of Chefs (10×60) sees four aspiring cooks compete against each other in three fierce rounds of culinary competition. In each challenge, the pressure rises as the home cooks create their dishes under the inspection of “The Wall” – an unparalleled roster of 33 Canadian culinary icons on rotation throughout the season, with twelve notable chefs featured in each episode. The competitors battle it out until the final round where The Wall ultimately announces the winner.
The Canadian home cooks set to test their skills and impress the judges come from across Canada including Fort McPherson, N.W.T., Calgary, Alta., Halifax, N.S., St. John’s, N.L., Saskatoon, Sask., Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., Vancouver, B.C. and more. In the first episode, “Welcome to the Wall,” four home cooks compete in the first “Crowd-Pleaser” round; Charlie Cacapit (Winnipeg, Man.), Susy Danelon (Toronto, Ont.), Christopher Mask (Wahnapitae, Ont.) and Nicole King (Toronto, Ont.) make their signature dishes. In round two entitled “Chef’s Fridge,” they create a dish using ricotta, leeks, and sriracha sauce, three staple ingredients in the home fridge of chef Mark McEwan. In the third and final round called “Restaurant-Worthy,” the last two competitors standing must make a luxurious lobster dish inspired by chef Renée Lavallée’s “crobster” roll. In an intense deliberation, The Wall decides which cook is the winner of the $10,000 prize. For the full list of competitors from across Canada, please visit foodnetwork.ca.
This season on Wall of Chefs, a Turkey Farmers of Canada sponsored “Chef’s Fridge” challenge will task competitors with incorporating turkey in their dish, along with three ingredients selected by one of the featured chefs.
