TORONTO, May 23, 2013 /CNW/ - Shaw Media is thrilled to announce today
the renewal of its highest rated Food Network Canada series, Top Chef Canada. Since the launch of season one in April, 2011, the Canadian
adaptation of the international smash hit has consistently been Food
Network's top ranked series. A national casting call for Canada's next
Top Chef has begun, with applications available at www.topchefcanada.ca. The deadline for submitting applications is June 11, 2013.
The country's best and brightest up-and-coming culinary stars, aged 19
years and older, are encouraged to visit www.topchefcanada.ca to be directed to the application form. In addition to the online
form, applicants must create a short video of themselves in action,
showing off their cooking ability and on-camera personality.
Staying true to the original show format, Top Chef Canada challenges competitors' culinary skills to see who can cut it as
Canada's Top Chef, taking home the grand prize including $100,000. The intensity builds
each week as the competitors vie for their shot at stardom and avoid
elimination. Shaw Media will continue to work with Canadian production
powerhouse, Insight Productions, for the fourth season, which will
