The teams will battle it out in an open kitchen arena at Mildred’s Temple Kitchen in Toronto. Fighting for the attention of the notable culinary experts on the judge’s panel. The students will be evaluated on their kitchen performance, sensory delivery and their technical recipe writing skills. The winners will be announced at the 2018 Taste Canada Awards Gala.
