MasterChef Canada update + Win a €15K Dining Experience

Jamie-oliver-at-masterchef-canada Image courtesy of On 7 April, two competitors were eliminated from MasterChef Canada much to the surprise of the competitors themselves. Judges Michael Bonacini, Alvin Leung and Claudio Aprile also revealed that business student Justine Joyal from Montreal and Matt VanderHelm from Toronto will be axed next. On April 13, MasterChef dubbed the "Egg Showdown?" returns and one of the eliminated competitors will return to the kitchen to battle for a space in the competition. Before they were eliminated, the cooks were presented with a massive Mystery Box full of Italian ingredients. Their task? To reset a “restaurant-quality appetizer” that would appear on the menu of Jamie's Italian, the Canadian chain of restaurants, owned by none other than the world-renowned chef Jamie Oliver! It was fitting for Oliver to be present as one of the judges much to the surprise of the cooks.

Did someone say pressure…?

The Top 8 cooks were given 45 minutes to create the appetizers using a range of fruits, vegetables and clams. The three chefs were called up to present their dishes to the judges to taste. Barrie made clams, sausage and greens, Trevor made a warm fall veggie salad while Thea made ricotta tortellini from scratch. Thea won the challenge and as a result, her meal will be added to the menu at Jamie’s Italian in Canada for a limited time only!
