Home cooks are encouraged to arrive at the MASTERCHEF CANADA Season 4 Open Casting Call for 7 a.m. ET on Saturday, Aug. 6 at the InterContinental Toronto Centre Hotel (225 Front St. W), with one prepared dish.

Applicants must also be able to carry everything they need into the audition room. Prospective competitors will be judged on how their dishes taste, as well as plating, creativity, skill, and food knowledge. Home cooks are encouraged to visit CTV.ca/MasterChefCanada, where they can complete the online application in advance of their audition, and also read the FAQs. All applicants must be amateurs, and cannot have worked professionally in a culinary environment as a cook, chef, or in food preparation.
