THE NEXT GREAT CHEF is an intensely competitive and fast-paced, television documentary series showcasing young chefs across Canada as they fight for the opportunity to become the nation's future star. THE NEXT GREAT CHEF is based on an existing competition organized by the Canadian Culinary Federation. Today, almost every young chef dreams of becoming a television chef. Scores of the young and talented hope to become the next Jamie Oliver, Rob Feenie or Nigela Lawson. THE NEXT GREAT CHEF gives those young professionals a chance to demonstrate their skills and ambitions in front of a national TV audience. But make no mistake: this is not the show about cooking. This show is about young people reaching for their dreams. In 10 half-hour episodes, two contenders from each province face-off in a battle of the culinary arts to win the taste buds and hearts of the jury and television audience. Using ingredients from a surprise black box, the chefs' task is to create a three course meal. Each contestant has a mentor whose job is to advise them throughout the competition. Judging is blind, and after the points are tabulated, the winner is announced. After 10 weeks, the one-hour season finale features the 10 provincial winners battling for the ultimate title of Canada's Next Great Chef. The finale is filmed on location, featuring interviews with the top ten chefs and an exhilarating final ceremony. Written by Anonymous See less
