Celebrity Chefs Recruiting for KitchenAid’s Cook for the Cure Culinary Showdown

Cook for the Cure

Celebrity chefs Lynn Crawford and Mark McEwan will be on hand to participate in the KitchenAid Cook for the Cure Culinary Showdown in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Some of the country’s hottest chefs are recruiting foodies to join their teams and win KitchenAid’s inaugural Cook for the Cure Culinary Showdown, which is set to take place at Toronto’s Fairmont Royal York Hotel on December 7th. Food lovers can register and begin fundraising by visiting the Cook for the Cure website.

Celebrity chefs participating in the event include:

  • Lynn Crawford, known for her appearances on the Food Network’s Restaurant Makeover and Iron Chef America;
  • Chuck Hughes, former host of Chuck’s Day Off and chef and co-owner of Le Bremner in Old Montreal;
  • Vikram Vij, whose restaurant, Vij’s Restaurant, was praised by the New York Times as “easily among the finest Indian restaurants in the world”;
  • Corbin Tomaszeski, known for his appearances on Restaurant Makeover and Dinner Party Wars and current executive chef at the Royal Ontario Museum’s C5; and
  • Mark McEwan, host of Fine Living Network’s The Heat and head judge on Food Network Canada’s Top Chef Canada.

The event will be hosted by actor Dean McDermott. The KitchenAid Cook for the Cure Culinary Showdown will be held in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF) to help the organization realize its vision of creating a future without breast cancer. CBCF is the largest non-governmental funder of breast cancer research in Canada.

Great Opportunity For Home Chefs to Show Off Their Skills

Aleksandra Hoszowski, Senior Brand Manager of KitchenAid Canada, says the event is “a great opportunity for passionate home chefs to get up close and personal with their favourite culinary idols while supporting breast cancer research and the valuable programs funded by CBCF.”

“With the KitchenAid Cook for the Cure event,” says Hoszowski, “we’re challenging foodies across Canada to put their best plate forward by doing what they love for the cure.”

The top 50 fundraisers win the opportunity to work alongside renowned chefs and put their own culinary skills to the test. Fundraisers who raise at least $2,500 participate in the Culinary Showdown’s Celebrity Chefs School, where they’ll learn everything from ingredient picking to proper plating. Participants who raise a minimum of $1,000 will watch the culinary battle as a member of the event’s audience.

Too Shy To Face the Crowd Just Yet?
