Weather Delay No Match for Regional Finalists Competing in Ultimate Chili Showdown

TORONTO, Feb. 10 /CNW/ - Nothing can keep Canada's top chili aficionados from competing in the ZANTAC® Chili Challenge - not even 'snowmageddon!' The whiteout weather earlier this month has only fired up our finalists, who will now compete on Wednesday, February 16th in Toronto.

After an intensive cross-country search for the nation's best chili, Canada's top chili aficionados from Ontario, Nova Scotia and British Columbia are gearing up for their chance to win the title of Chili Challenge champion - and a trip for two to the Mayan Riviera.

These three finalists' original and most prized chili recipes were selected from 300 submitted by Canadians over the past few months. After competing in regional cook-offs across the country, the chili champs are now bringing their heat to the final cook-off event.

This is the first year that regional finalists have come together to spice things up in Toronto.  And not only will they face fierce competition from each other - they're set to go head to head with two-year undefeated ZANTAC® Chili Challenge champion Mike Callaghan from London, Ontario! 

Contestants will prepare their chili recipes live for a panel of judges including celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak, who will ultimately determine the grand prize winner. Can Mike's recipe take the heat or will a new champion be crowned? 

Join us for the live chili throwdown where you'll have the opportunity to taste each chili recipe for yourself, meet the finalists as well as speak with Anthony Sedlak about what it takes to create a winning taste combination. To view the finalists' recipes, visit

When:    Wednesday, February 16, 2011
  12:00 p.m.
Where:   Calphalon Culinary Centre
  425 King St. West, Toronto
