We don’t know who will be in the Top Chef Canada season finale, but we do know the setting: Calgary.
Food Network Canada made the announcement Tuesday morning via press release, saying the show was pulling up stakes in Toronto for The Stampede City.
“A big part of what makes Top Chef Canada so successful is the dramatic twists and turns that unfold throughout the series,” said Barb Williams, senior vice-president of content at Shaw Media. “Taking the chefs out of their comfort zones and into a brand new city adds a huge element of surprise and intrigue that is sure to keep viewers on the edges of their seats. As one of Canada’s most innovative dining destinations, Calgary truly is an ideal backdrop for the season finale.”
The Season 3 finale episode, scheduled for Monday, June 10, at 9 p.m. ET/10 p.m. PT, begins with the Quickfire Challenge, where the remaining chefs create a food truck concept at Prince’s Island Park.
Rush Restaurant and Bar is the site of the Elimination Challenge, where each competitor creates a five-course meal that reflects their talents as a chef. The guest judges taking part in the Elimination Challenge are Top Chef Canada Season 1 finalist Connie DeSousa, Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter Jann Arden and Rush owner Lance Hurtubise.
The winner of Top Chef Canada captures $100,000, a GE Monogram kitchen worth $30,000, a custom installation by Caesarstone Quartz Surfaces worth $25,000 and the title of Top Chef.
Monday’s latest episode of Top Chef Canada saw the elimination of Caity Hall from the contest, leaving just six remaining.
