The competition has started! The top 8 – 10 chefs from each of the 11 cities in Canada have been selected by a national and regional panel of judges and they are preparing to compete this fall for the honour of being the Gold Medal Plates champion in their city. During the Gold Medal Plates project over 100 competing chefs create their ultimate dish and pair it with a premier Canadian wine, beer or spirit. A team of food and wine critics from each city work with national critics to determine the top three winning creations and then a gold, silver and bronze medal winning chef is crowned. To be invited to compete is a notch in the belt. To win the gold is a major achievement! The gold medal winning chef from each city goes on to compete at the Gold Medal Plates Finale – The Canadian Culinary Championship – in Kelowna, British Columbia. To be crowned the top chef in Canada is a career changer!
