Top Chef Canada is a reality competition show. It first aired April 11, 2011 on Food Network Canada. The program will air 13 episodes consisting of 16 contestants vying for a grand prize of $100,000 and a GE Monogram kitchen valued at $30,000. Contestants will shop at Loblaws. Like the original American series, each week the chef contestants compete against each other in culinary challenges. They will be judged by a panel of professional chefs and other notables from the food and wine industry, with one or more contestants being eliminated each week. The Canadian edition uses the same graphics and music as the American version of the program.
