For the MASTERCHEF CANADA Open Casting Call, amateur chefs can bring one prepared dish to the InterContinental Hotel at 225 Front St. W at 7 a.m. ET on August 10 and 11, 2013. There will be time to plate the dish but no kitchen facilities or plating supplies provided. All dishes will be tasted at room temperature and applicants must be able to carry everything they need into the audition room. Food will be judged for taste, plating, creativity, skill, and food knowledge. Potential hopefuls can visit CTV.ca/MasterChefCanada and follow the links for full casting details and FAQs.
MASTERCHEF CANADA provides an opportunity for Canadian amateur chefs to develop their culinary skills as they compete for the MASTERCHEF CANADA title. In keeping with the MASTERCHEF format, the contestants will face individual and team-based cooking challenges, which result in one or more home cooks being eliminated each week, until finally Canada’s first MASTERCHEF is crowned. The Canadian version of the internationally acclaimed series MASTERCHEF is slated for a winter 2014 debut on CTV.
