More Top Chef Canada details trickle out

If you’re like us, you’ve been anxiously awaiting the debut of Top Chef Canada to satisfy your cravings for some serious televised culinary competition. Well, we’ll only have to wait a few more months: Food Network Canada has just announced that the Canuck edition of the popular reality show, featuring Mark McEwan as head judge, will air on April 11, and that contestants will be competing for a grand prize of $100,000. (And since gratuitous product placement is half the fun of watching the show, we should note that you can look forward to a season of cooking on GE Monogram appliances and shopping at Loblaws.) It’s not like we’re counting down or anything, but seriously, only 75 days to go!
