Selected guests were invited to attend the 2nd Chef’s Challenge Pre-event with celebrity Chef Mark McEwan at Sub-Zero and Wolf. As the reigning champ of last year’s Chef Challenge, McEwan talked about how he was going to make his team work really hard to defend his title for this year’s Chef’s Challenge on December 1st at Fairmont Royal York Hotel. When asked what his tip for his potential team members in the audience, he joked “don’t cut yourself!” So the battle will be intense but if you’re a serious aspiring chef, you can still register at www.chefschallengeforacure.com. A minimum donation of $2,500 allows you to watch the battle unfold live on Dec 1st. If you make it to the list of the top 50 fundraisers, you will be in the heat of this great culinary battle elbow-to-elbow with one of the celebrity chefs: Lynn Crawford, Chuck Hughes, Mark McEwan, David Rocco, and Michael Smith.
This was the 2nd pre-event leading up to the Chef’s Challenge event on December 1st. Read about the 1st pre-event with Chef John Cirillo at Cirillo’s Culinary Academy.
