, presented by MasterCard Worldwide, benefiting breast and ovarian cancer research at the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute and Mount Sinai’s Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre.
The Carlu will be transformed into a first class cooking arena as self proclaimed foodies go against the best in the ultimate culinary event of the season. 500 participants must raise a minimum of $2500 to attend the event, while the top 50 fundraisers will earn the right to show off their culinary skills on stage, led by an all-star line up, featuring Food Network celebrity chefs David Rocco, Mark McEwan, Lynn Crawford, Jamie Kennedy, Massimo Capra and of course chef Gordon Ramsay!
The pre-battle session begins on November 20th at 10 am sharp. Five teams of 10 will be paired, with a celebrity chef team leader and assigned a task based on their culinary expertise. Each team will have an allotted amount of time to execute food prep for their assigned course. At 7pm the battle starts, as each team creates a delicious three-course meal delivered on-time for judging and scored on taste, presentation and the ability to work in the heat of Chef Ramsay’s kitchen. Non-competing guests will enjoy a five course epicurean experience with wine pairings and a menu designed by Chef Ramsay, while watching the pulse-pounding cook-off as it unfolds.
For those keeners, the top 25 fundraisers will earn the privilege of attending a VIP brunch on Sunday November 21, 2010 with the celebrity chefs, including food authority, Gordon Ramsay.
Please show your support for women’s cancers. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women: one in nine is expected to develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Every year, approximately 2,500 Canadian women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
Funding from the Chef’s Challenge will support the work of the Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute scientists in hope of discovering innovative approaches to prevent, diagnose, and treat breast and ovarian cancers. Think you have what it takes? Register here
