KitchenAid’s Cook for the Cure
This year, as part of Cook for the Cure, KitchenAid Canada is offering food lovers across Canada the chance to work alongside all-star Canadian chefs in a team cooking challenge as part of the first-ever KitchenAid Cook for the Cure Culinary Showdown on December 7th 2013. Hosted by actor Dean McDermott, featuring names like Lynn Crawford, Chuck Hughes, Mark McEwan, Vikram Vij and Corbin Tomaszeski, the Showdown will take place at Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York Hotel and is an exclusive experience in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) to help realize the organization’s vision of creating a future without breast cancer. CBCF is the largest non-governmental funder of breast cancer research in Canada.
The top 50 fundraisers will put their culinary skills to the test live on stage with a celebrity chef. Five teams of 10 will compete under pressure to create three unique dishes. Participants will be judged by on taste and presentation. Participants who raise at least $2,500 will participate in the Culinary Showdown’s Celebrity Chefs School and will be coached on everything from ingredient picking to proper plating by Canada’s top chefs. Participants who raise a minimum of $1,000 are invited to take in the Showdown in person as a member of the audience.
