Thousands of cooks from across the country apply, but only the Top contenders are asked to audition for the MASTERCHEF CANADA judges. Each participant presents their signature dish in hopes of earning a coveted white apron. Only the most talented and creative home cooks will move forward to the MASTERCHEF CANADA Kitchen. Each week, the MASTERCHEF CANADA Judges inspire the home cooks to grow and evolve, pushing them toward culinary greatness. Internationally-acclaimed chefs and restaurateurs Michael Bonacini (co-owner of the Oliver & Bonacini restaurant empire), Claudio Aprile (chef/owner of the celebrated Origin restaurants) and Alvin Leung (owner of the Michelin-starred Bo Innovation in Hong Kong) are the firm-but-fair mentors who take these amateurs on a journey from home cook to haute cuisine.

User Reviews

Best cooking show available ever, by far.

My experience with cooking shows is not an extensive one. It all started this year, with me watching the first couple of seasons of Masterchef US, which wasn't bad, Ramsay is unbearable to watch sometimes. After this, I moved on to Masterchef Junior, which was significantly better since the judges weren't so presumptious and pretentious. However, they were still very much annoying. Quarantine began, and my partner suggested that we watched Masterchef Canada. I wasn't too excited about the idea, but began watching it nonetheless.

God, was it fun. The first couple of episodes I also disliked Leung and his over the top rage, but this soon went away after the first couple of seasons, where he showed he truly is the sweetest of the bunch. Michael Bonaccini and Claudio Aprile are amazing judges and I liked them from the get go. Soon I was endeared with all of the judges, and the show became such a comfort binge material.

The contestants are absolutely amazing, not only cooking-wise, but they make the show very funny and entertaining.

I've never gotten this much into anything cooking related, but it got to the point where I was absolutely joyous when they announced they're coming back for a seventh season (needless to say, I've seen all 6 six seasons and love them all) and can't wait to see it!
