The Marilyn Denis Show and The Little Potato Company team up for The Little Chef casting call

From a media release:

It’s a culinary contest like no other! Launching today, little chefs across Canada have the opportunity to showcase their talent and put their cooking skills to the test on CTV’s THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW. For the second year in a row, THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW and MASTERCHEF CANADA’s Michael Bonacini have partnered with The Little Potato Company to create The Little Chef Casting Call. The contest gives young Canadian chefs the chance to appear on CTV as well as win the culinary trip of a lifetime for their family to Rome, Italy.

To enter the casting call, families must visit Marilyn.ca and submit a video of their little chef cooking an original recipe that includes small potatoes. The contest is open to all Canadian children aged 8-13. Videos will be accepted for five weeks beginning today, Monday, Sept. 12.

The casting call will culminate with two finalists going head-to-head on THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW to compete for the grand prize of a family adventure for four people in Rome, courtesy of The Little Potato Company. The prize includes airfare, seven nights’ accommodation, and an incredible culinary experience for the travellers.

After the initial call for entries, 10 finalists will be selected by a judging panel and Canadians will be able to vote for their favourite Little Chef at Marilyn.ca. Each semi-finalist wins a culinary prize pack valued at $225. Following the voting period, the judging panel will select the two finalists who will travel to Toronto with their families to appear in an episode of THE MARILYN DENIS SHOW to compete in a cook-off for a chance to win the grand prize trip. More details about Top 10 and voting will be provided in the coming weeks. Viewers can visit Marilyn.ca for full rules and regulations.

The contest will be promoted and featured at major retailers across Canada and supported at store level with “Little Chef Program” support material and promotional programs.


Link: Marilyn Denis hits 1,000 episodes, once again

From Geoffrey Vendeville of the Toronto Star:

Marilyn Denis hits 1,000 episodes, once again
When you’ve been in front of the cameras as long as Marilyn Denis has, it’s easy to lose count of the episodes you have made. She didn’t know the 1,000th episode of The Marilyn Denis Show was approaching until her producers told her. It airs Tuesday at 10 a.m. on CTV.

Denis was surprised despite having already passed that milestone as the face of City TV’s Cityline morning show for 19 seasons. Continue reading.


Comments and queries for the week of Oct. 3

This is my first time at the site; it’s nice to see you review Heartland, which is my favorite show and one of my all-time favourites. It became my favourite when I took a chance and bought the DVDs after having seen many of the commercials for the show but not having watched it on TV at that point.

Jack was reluctant, I think, given how Lou had reacted to their initial considering of marriage (when she was about to be married to Peter), given how the sisters tend to be overprotective of him, and because he is generally a private man. He has told them and others, more than once, that his love life is private, etc. Jack does love Lisa and isn’t ashamed of her or of how they chose to get married, but he is much more old fashioned and private than Lisa is.

As for Tim, he’s a likeable cad–a tamer version of a type of JR Ewing (Dallas) in the sense that he sometimes acts selfishly and in his own interests without thinking of others but he is a loving person. He is super competitive as was revealed in his relationship with Janice and with his ex-lady friend Miranda (with whom he had a son–though she didn’t tell him until many years later). It was definitely not “nice” of him to do what he did but he is very competitive and doesn’t always think of others before he acts.–Pat

On The Marilyn Denis Show, Sebastian Clovis showed how to update old 1980s cabinets with plywood flooring boards. Do you have this on video? I could not record the show.–Vera

Sorry you missed Sebastian’s appearance. Thursday’s episode featuring him will be available on The Marilyn Denis Show website in the next day or so. You can find it here.
