Chef Hawksworth and the Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship team are on the last leg of their trip across the county to find the best young Canadian culinary talent. After hosting regional heat competitions in Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto earlier this summer, the team is thrilled to see what Montreal can bring to the table. The first ever Montreal heat will be hosted at Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec on July 29th. Two competitors from this heat will advance to the finals, in the hopes that they will come out on top with the $10,000 prize and an international stage. The two competitors that reside in Eastern Canada will be in high calibre company at the finals competing alongside;
Ian MacDougall, Model Milk, Calgary
Keith Hodgson, Four Seasons Hotel, Vancouver
Kevin Tang, Shangri-La Hotel, Vancouver
Marvin Palomo, Dailo, Toronto
Sean MacDonald, Market Restaurant, Calgary
Stephen Baidacoff, Eleven Madison Park, New York
