Events | Chef’s Challenge 2014

Charity events seem to be adding up these days, and each of them deserves as much love and attention as I can give. On Saturday February 8th 2014, Chef’s Challenge is coming to The Toronto Congress Centre, and this is an event you aren’t going to want to miss!


Chef’s Challenge®: The Ultimate Battle for a Cure is an annual fundraiser in support of Mount Sinai Hospital. Since it began in 2010, the event has attracted international culinary celebrities such as Gordon Ramsay and Bobby Flay, and has raised over $3 million for care and research in women’s cancers at Mount Sinai Hospital. The contest encourages Canadians to register and raise funds. Each of the top 50 fundraisers earns a chance to compete on stage alongside this year’s superstar, Giada De Laurentiis.

The premise is pretty amazing really. Celebrity chefs competing in an all out food battle royale for a great cause. Delicious food, celebrity meet & greets and all for the benefit of a hospital that does some of the greatest work in the country for women’s cancer research and treatment.

Add to that Celebrity Chef Host Giada De Laurentiis who will be judging alongside her talented peers including Scott McGillivrayGrant van GamerenMaggie McKeown and more! This is going to be one star studded day with some amazing culinary creations.

“Food brings people together, and when it brings people together for a good cause it is even more special. I am honoured to be part of Chef’s Challenge®: The Ultimate Battle for a Cure, a culinary event that not only celebrates food, but also celebrates life. Salute!”

-Host Giada De Laurentiis

With notable chefs and food celebrities all coming together for one amazing day, this is sure to be one of the best foodie events in the city for 2014! Julio & I are looking forward to being a part of this great day. If you can’t make it in person, you too can lend a hand to making a difference in the lives of countless women who face cancer at Mount Sinai Hospital every day.
